SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - Nearly two weeks after a 16-year-old boy was found shot to death in a wooded area in Sugarhouse, police arrest a woman who may have information.
36 year old Jessica Reyos is now behind bars. Police picked her up Tuesday. They said she's the first of many arrests detectives will make in murder of Kenyatta Winston.
"They're out rounding up people as we're speaking," said Det. Dennis McGowan, Salt Lake City Police Dept.
Police won't say how she's involved, but said they're throwing her in jail for lying to cops about the case.
Winston's family last saw him alive on August 26th. Three days later construction workers found his body in a brush area off of 2700 South in Sugarhouse. Police said he'd been shot to death.
"Basically we don't know what he was doing in that area, and we're not aware of him having any friends or family in that area," said Det. John Ashdown, Salt Lake City Police Dept.
For nearly two weeks police have tried to find his killer.
"The investigators have been relentless in following up on everything, every shred of evidence, they've interviewed countless witnesses," said McGowan.
Now it appears that hard work is paying off. Although police won't tell who is next, they said Jessica Reyos won't be alone.
