Salt Lake County DA on Lueck murder: 'It’s a priority case'

Three months after the disappearance and ultimate murder of 23-year-old University of Utah student Mackenzie Lueck, the case remains active and ongoing, according to Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill.

Ayoola Ajayi, 31, who was identified as a person of interest in the case, was arrested on June 28 after police confirmed DNA evidence was found at his home. Felony charges were filed against Ajayi on July 10 for criminal homicide/aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping, obstruction of justice and the abuse or desecration of a human body in connection to Lueck’s murder.

Gill sat down with KSL Investigator Brittany Glas in a one-on-one interview to discuss the case, its standing and what friends and family of Lueck should expect as they seek justice for their loved one’s death. When asked about the process behind prosecuting a high-profile, complicated case like the one against Ajayi, Gill said, “First of all, it takes a lot of resources. There’s a lot of different partners that have come into play. You start with information in the community, you have a law enforcement agency that gets involved. They have a process to gather the information, then there’s a nexus that develops between that law enforcement agency and the district attorney’s office.”

Ajayi currently faces 27 total counts of various charges filed by the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office. They include the four counts mentioned above, 19 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor after child pornography was allegedly found on Ajayi’s computer after his arrest, and four counts related to a separate kidnapping case dating back to March 2018. Ajayi is currently booked into the Salt Lake County Jail without bail.

Chief Mike Brown said Ajayi denied any personal contact and told investigators he didn’t know what Lueck looked like, despite police finding having several photos of her in his possession. Ajayi is presumed innocent until proven guilty. He has a scheduling conference set for October 7 in court.
