    Lots of people work in IT, in lots of different capacities. It sounds like this guy was pretty low level. He also seems to think he is much, much smarter than he actually is.

    I work in IT, and I am very good at what I do, but I don't know squat about cyber security, and would fail miserably at trying to cover my tracks online.

    I thought it unlikely, too, and I'm still not convinced. Just because they found DNA evidence does not mean...sigh, I can't even say what I'm thinking. :(

    No, to both of those questions. My Internet was acting up too. The sound kept cutting off randomly then would start working again.

    May I just say that I am incredibly impressed with just how quickly the Salt Lake City PD and DA acted in this case and how quickly they made an arrest. They were on this in full force from the day she was reported missing. I tip my hat to them. Bravo.

    Latest from the Tribune:

    MacKenzie Lueck is dead. Police seek aggravated murder charge against man arrested.

    Investigators say missing University of Utah student MacKenzie Lueck has died — and they have arrested a Salt Lake City man who police say killed her and burned her body.

    Ayoola Ajayi, 31, was being booked into jail on suspicion of aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping, desecration of a body and obstruction of justice after a SWAT team took him into custody Friday morning at a West Temple apartment complex, said Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown.

    No rapid DNA was used. Lab techs just worked their butts off to get results, given the urgency of the situation.

    AA is from Nigeria per FOX13 SLC

    Utah does have the death penalty!

    The death penalty would be too kind for him. He needs to live with it. Or somebody get this guy a necklace since he likes them so much. I'm not happy.

    I'm getting database errors, trouble "liking" posts, etc. Maybe just an overload of members/posts ATM?

    What we know about Ayoola Ajayi, the man arrested in connection with MacKenzie Lueck's disappearance
    [...]

    According to Salt Lake County property records, Ajayi owns the home at 547 N. 1000 West where police served a search warrant Wednesday evening.

    He joined Airbnb as a user in 2016, according to the site. He listed his home there in two separate pages, offering accommodations in the basement of the home, according to the site.

    Ajayi’s LinkedIn indicates that he has work experience in tech support and IT for companies in Utah including Dell, Goldman Sachs and Microsoft.

    [...]

    He also self-published a book on Amazon called "Forge Identity." In the book, a teenage boy witnesses a gruesome murder and must choose whether to live a life of crime or make an escape, according to the plot summary.

    Ajayi was discharged from the Utah Army National Guard in June 2015 after six months of service, according to Utah National Guard Public Affairs Officer D.J. Gibb.

    Ajayi was a member of the 214th Forward Support Company in Tooele, according to Gibb. He did not go through basic training and did not receive any certificates or awards, Gibb said. Therefore, he was not eligible to deploy with the Army National Guard, he said.

    Ajayi did not meet “medical procurement standards” and was discharged as a result, Gibb said.

    Ajayi was ordered to pay $1,097 to Ridgeview Property Management in a Davis County eviction case in 2017, according to court records.

    Ajayi, along with two other men, were served a three-day notice to pay or vacate the premises in March 2016, with which they did not comply, court documents show.

    Aside from several traffic violations, Ajayi has no previous criminal history in Utah.

    KSL states the 2nd person was taken into custody with AA was a matter of protocol but that he has been released. (He was brought it because he was there when AA are arrested.) The man speaking now will not indicate whether or not there may be further arrests.

    Rapid DNA was not used. The ME's office worked around the clock.

    I fervently hope LE is keeping an eye on that guy AND investigating the fellow that left the awful review on airBnB.

    There is something very wrong and I just don’t think POI acted alone

    He lied and lied and lied to LE. He admitted texting her (can't recall when he claimed they last texted), but he denied he looked at any of her SM accounts, denied even knowing what she looked like and denied that he ever
    met her that night or any other.

    He's high up there on the old Depravity Scale!

    Yes, from the outside looking in we can see nothing but warning signs. Sadly, KL didn't see them. I can only hope after what KL went through it will open the eyes of others to never let their guard down. She had a lifestyle many of us cringe at but regardless she didn't deserve this.

    Deepest condolences to her friends and family @yellowmoose. <3 I'm glad there is some closure as painful and horrible as it may be.

    I have to sign off for a while. Hug your loved ones tight, everyone.

    Strange, extremely sad case. RIP Kenz.

    That one meetup page with all those listings of sexual things, was complete insanity. This world is full of dangerous evil people who prey on humanity. I just feel real disgusted and feel for her friends and family.

    Such a disturbing, horrific outcome.

    The chief of police did say they are investigating to see if others were involved.

    There’s no doubt they will compare his life and actions with unsolved cases.

    I personally do not think this was his first rodeo, even though he was incredibly stupid in his cover-up attempts. If it was his first, they may have stopped a serial killer before other lives were taken.

    IMO, the police moved very quickly. The delay in this case was due to her never being reported missing until sometime Thursday (I think afternoon). They needed warrants to get the phone info, time to receive it and figure out who she was talking. They moved insanely fast once they knew there was a person missing and got access to her stuff. They were at the house days ago, but testing the items they found took time.

    Fox 13 live stream, interview of a former police chief now PI discussed the acts of preplanning, basically crime was premeditated.

    First, one of their mothers, then their daughter. Overwhelming grief.
