(FOX NEWS) – Police have charged a man with aggravated murder in the “tragic and horrific” killing of missing University of Utah student Mackenzie Lueck, officials announced Friday.
The suspect, identified as 31-year-old Ayoola Ajayi, was taken into custody Friday morning after an investigation uncovered a fresh dig area, charred female human tissue and items belonging to the missing student in the backyard of his Salt Lake City home, police said. His neighbors, they added, had informed detectives they noticed Ajayi burning something with the help of gasoline around June 17, when Lueck was last seen.
“After an exhaustive week of investigation, we are filing charges of aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping, obstruction of justice and desecration of a body in the homicide of Mackenzie Lueck,” Salt Lake City Police Chief Mike Brown told reporters.
“I will not be saying the killer’s name again,” he added, noting that the crimes were “tragic and horrific”.
