The Phoenix authorities have released details about the suspect linked to the murder of 29-year-old Lauren Heike, who was reportedly stabbed multiple times during a walk not far from her apartment in Scottsdale. The suspect has been identified as 22-year-old Zion Williams Teasley, per AZ Family.

Investigators stated that Teasley had been arrested and taken into custody late Thursday afternoon, near Scottsdale and Bell roads, less than a mile from where Heike’s body was discovered.

Teasley was tracked down by the discovery of DNA at the scene of the crime, and prosecutors noted that the suspect had demonstrated “premeditations” in the alleged murder. Teasley was also revealed to be a flight risk, as he apparently had a plane ticket that was to take him to Detroit, Michigan.

Sgt. Melissa Soliz confirmed that Teasley was the individual seen running in the video clip that was released by the authorities earlier this week, saying: “Right now, he is the person that we believe to be responsible or in connection to the murder of Lauren Heike.” However, Soliz did not specify if there was any previous connection between Teasley and Heike.
