New details appeared on the suspect and the cause of the death of a student at the University of Utah who was seen living in Salt Lake City on June 17.
As CrimeOnline has already pointed out, the 23-year-old body of Mackenzie Lueck was found in a Utah canyon earlier this month, about 85 km north of his disappearance.
According to New York Post, the victim's body was found with his arms tied behind his back. Prosecutors said his body had been burned and that there was a two-inch hole in his skull.

In a statement released on Wednesday, Attorney General Sam Gill revealed that the cause of Lueck's death was blunt trauma to the head.
He added that the victim's family had asked him to "express on their behalf the generosity of so many foreigners and friends" during this difficult period.
The new findings were made public when the suspect in her murder, Ayoola Ajayi, 31, was in court to hear the charges against him. The investigators also found traces of charred human remains in his home and accused him of soaking Lueck's body in gasoline before setting it on fire.
He should face charges of aggravated murder, kidnapping, desecration of a body and obstruction of justice.
