Mackenzie Lueck. The body of 23-year-old Utah woman Mackenzie Lueck has been found, the authorities announce.
The body of a slain college student has been recovered in a canyon about 85 miles away from a backyard in Salt Lake City where other remains were found last week, Utah police said Friday. The disclosure came at a news conference in the case involving 23-year-old Mackenzie Lueck.
A few days ago, we talked about the disturbing disappearance of 23-year-old Mackenzie Lueck. On June 17, the young woman had landed at the Salt Lake, Utah airport after a short stay in California. She had had time to tell her parents that she had landed and then got into a taxi before disappearing.
Since then, despite important research, there has been no news of the young woman.
This weekend, the police held a press conference during which the arrest of a man was announced. During a search, the girl’s belongings were found. And Mackenzie Lueck’s DNA was also found on a piece of textile found in the man’s home.
The suspect claims never to have seen the young woman. Yet he was in possession of several pictures of her.
The suspect was charged with “Murder with aggravating circumstances, kidnapping, obstruction of justice and mutilation of a body”.
