Utah Student’s Body Not in Backyard, but Found Dumped in Canyon

In a new twist to a gruesome case, it was announced earlier today that the body of slain Utah coed Mackenzie Lueck was found 85 miles away from the yard belonging to Nigerian Ayoola Ajayi where earlier police said human tissue had been found.

See my previous stories on the case here.

The story at CBS (and elsewhere) is pretty thin so far, but here is the gist of the news.

Body of slain Utah State student Mackenzie Lueck recovered

 

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.

Authorities previously said some of her charred remains and personal belongings were found in the backyard of the suspect, Ayoola Ajayi, in Salt Lake City. The body was discovered Wednesday in Logan Canyon.

Lueck disappeared June 17, after she returned from a trip to her hometown of El Segundo, California, for her grandmother’s funeral and took a Lyft from the airport to a park where she met someone.

Police say the last person she communicated with was 31-year-old Ayoola Ajayi, who was also in the park. He’s being held on suspicion of aggravated murder, kidnapping and other crimes. No attorney has been listed for him.

Charges have not been filed. District Attorney Sim Gill told CBS affiliate KUTV that his office is screening charges for Ajayi.

Police have not discussed a motive for the killing or how Lueck died. It isn’t clear how Ajayi and Lueck knew each other.

Lueck was missing for nearly two weeks before Ajayi was arrested.

CBS actually mentions Ajayi’s roots in Nigeria (in the last paragraph!).

How the Congo is Moving to Welcoming Maine

“Along the way, word passed from mouth to mouth about a far-off place that would welcome them: Portland, Maine.”

 

I hope you all had a great Independence Day yesterday!

This story from the Portland Press Herald is one of many stories I have in a queue on the migration to Portland, Maine by Africans who heard about Portland and obviously had the money to travel there!

Unfortunately, I have little time (I’m going away Sunday) to tell you about all of those stories, but this one outlines how the migration is happening after the apparently well-funded and well-fed Africans flew to South America and headed north from there.

(My previous posts on Portland are here.)

If you want to experience the joy the ‘humanitarians’ of Maine are experiencing there are two things you need—a growing ethnic community (Somali, Congolese, Nigerian, whatever) because they want to live with their own kind of people, and generous social services, and they will come!

Oh, and by the way, according to the Center for Immigration Studies, 35,000 more Africans are staged in Central America ready to make the jump to the US border.

Recently someone told me that a family member was fed up with Seattle and had bought a house in Portland, Maine.  The thought, which I did not express, was this:  What the h*** don’t people read!
