AFRICAN IMMIGRANT CHARGED WITH MISSING STUDENT’S GHASTLY MURDER

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (KSL) – After an exhaustive weeklong investigation, Salt Lake police somberly announced Friday that they believe a University of Utah student missing since June 17 was murdered.

A man who police say she met up with on June 17 in a North Salt Lake park was arrested in connection with the death of 23-year-old Mackenzie Lueck.
