A 13-year-old boy was arrested on December 13 and charged as a juvenile with felony murder.
He told detectives he was at the park with the other youths during the botched mugging but wasn’t the one who stabbed Majors.
The youth is currently being held in a juvenile detention facility, and investigators are also reportedly in the process of trying to get his DNA.
Meanwhile, a third juvenile suspect was questioned for several hours, also on December 13, but police let him go.
Cops, as they searched for the alleged stabber had made the unusual move of releasing his photo, but not his name, asking for the public’s help in locating the youth.
