Mackenzie Lueck Bio
The murder of Mackenzie Speth Lueck occurred in June 2019, when 23-year-old Lueck, a student at the University of Utah, was reported missing and her remains afterward discovered. 31-year-old Ayoola Ajayi was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and murder following a search of his home and after Lueck’s bound, burned, and buried remains were found.
It was reported that the suspect, who police said kidnapped and killed Lueck before burning her body in his backyard, had a book on Amazon featuring characters who are killed and burned. The author’s name was the same as that of the suspect arrested, and a Facebook page with photos of the suspect promoted the book.
Mackenzie Lueck More fact about her Murder
The unnamed woman who was allegedly sexually assaulted reported the crime to police after Ajayi was charged in June with murder and kidnapping in the death of 23-year-old Lueck, said Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill.
Judge Vernice Trease declared Friday that based on testimony and arguments from attorneys, there was enough evidence to move forward to trial in the case involving the March 2018 incident, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.
She exchanged text messages with Ajayi and met him at the park, apparently willingly, but her phone was turned off a minute after the final text and wasn’t turned back on, prosecutors have said.
Police have said Lueck was last seen getting into Ajayi’s car on June 17. She was reported missing three days later.
Lueck’s body was recovered from Logan Canyon, 85 miles north of Salt Lake City in August. Her body was found with her arms bound behind her, according to police.
She died from blunt force trauma to the head. Police charged Ajayi with her murder after some of her remains and belongings were found buried in his backyard. Police have not revealed what those items are.
