DAVID GLATZER MUG 2018

SOUTH SALT LAKE (ABC4 News) – South Salt Lake police confirmed the arrest of a man they say is connected to the death of a teenage girl.

Davis Oliver Glatzer, 42, had a $1 million warrant out for his arrest. Glatzer, who was believed to be homeless, was arrested Sunday night during a traffic stop at 844 E. North Union Avenue by Unified Police officers.

Glatzer briefly fled on foot but was eventually apprehended. It is unknown if he was the driver or passenger of the vehicle stopped.

Glatzer was wanted by the South Salt Lake Police Department for an incident on November 13, 2016 when he called 911 from a home located at 361 East Georgia Circle on a report of a young woman who was unresponsive. 

Upon arrival, first responders found a 16-year-old girl unclothed and in a shower with no pulse. The girl was transported to IMC where she was pronounced dead. 

Glatzer told police he met the girl on TRAX and they went to his house the night of the 12th to do herion together. He told detectives he gave the girl three Gabapentin 800 mg tablets to “relax” her and the two had sex when she became ill and vomited. He woke up the next morning to her not breathing and blue. Police said Glatzer did not call police for another two hours but instead put her in the shower to revive her. 

Toxicological reports showed the girls Gabapentin levels showed seven times the amount Glatzer had told police he gave her. The Medical Examiner said the levels she had could have been fatal on their own but the additional heroin at the same time increased her risk of death. 

Police had been looking for Glatzer for the last few days prior to his arrest. He faces charges of first-degree manslaughter and third-degree endangerment of a child. 

Unified Police did not share any further information surrounding his arrest.
