Josh Leleviere, the stepfather of 13-year-old Jayden Glomb, has been arrested in connection to her death. Jayden’s body was found in the Vail desert on May 11.
She was last seen at home by family members on the evening of May 10, 2017.
According to Sergeant Pete Dugan with the Tucson Police Department, while the investigation into the tragic death of Jayden is continuing, it has shifted from one of a suspicious death to a homicide investigation, since the medical examiner has determined that the cause of death was asphyxiation.
Tucson Police Department officers arrested Leleviere, age 37, on Wednesday.
Mr. Leleviere was booked into the Pima County jail for one count of first degree murder and one count of abandonment or concealment of a body.
