Utah student Mackenzie Lueck’s friends say her suspected killer was ‘hunting for women,’ fight claims she ‘deserved’ it

Westlake Legal Group Lueck-friends Utah student Mackenzie Lueck's friends say her suspected killer was 'hunting for women,' fight claims she 'deserved' it Vandana Rambaran fox-news/us/us-regions/west/utah fox-news/us/crime/homicide fox-news/us/crime fox news fnc/us fnc Cristina Corbin article 7570f2a9-9758-59bd-9e94-dde3842ad9fc

Friends of University of Utah student Mackenzie Lueck said Sunday in a Fox News exclusive interview they believe the suspect arrested in her disappearance and murder was “hunting for women.”

Lueck, 23, disappeared after police said she met with the suspect identified as 31-year-old Ayoola Ajayi, who was arrested and charged with aggravated murder Friday. Authorities have yet to announce how they concluded she was murdered or how the killing occurred.

The student met with Ajayi around 3 a.m. on June 17 near a park in Salt Lake City after she had been dropped off by a Lyft driver, according to police. They said that Ajayi was the last person to communicate with Lueck before her disappearance and that phone records indicated they were both in the area around 3 a.m.

“There’s a lot of people that say she deserved this because she put herself in this situation and we don’t officially know that,” Kennedy Stoner, a sorority sister and friend of Lueck’s, told Fox News in an exclusive interview on Sunday.

POLICE: MISSING UNIVERSITY OF UTAH STUDENT MACKENZIE LUECK IS DEAD; MAN CHARGED WITH MURDER

Two other friends, Ashley Fine and Katie Kvam, speaking to Fox News, called out people on social media who were blaming Lueck for her own death.

“No person regardless of their gender or dating life deserves to die,” Fine said. “Mackenzie is not responsible for the death and murder of Mackenzie. There’s only one person responsible for that, and we’re here to hold him responsible and we’re going to keep holding him responsible.”

“If Kenzie knew what was gonna happen she would not have met that individual at the park,” Kvam said. “Her death is not her fault… and for people to say things other than that is hurtful. It’s hurtful to us. It’s hurtful to her family. It’s hurtful to other victims out there. It just doesn’t make sense.”

In a Fox News exclusive, a Utah handyman who did work at Ajayi’s home in April said Friday the suspect asked him to build a secret, soundproof room in his basement, complete with strange hooks on the walls in a space that was roughly four feet wide and seven to nine feet long.

FOX NEWS EXCLUSIVE: SUSPECT IN MACKENZIE LUECK SLAYING WANTED SECRET ROOM WITH WALL HOOKS BUILT, CONTRACTOR CLAIMS

Stoner said she thought the plan to build the room nearly three months before Lueck’s murder showed that Ajayi “was planning on doing this to someone.”

She added, “I don’t know if it was exactly Kenzie but there was definitely a plan there.”

In an emotional interview, the three girls reminisced about road trips to Lake Powell in the summer and longstanding plans to return to Park City for the 4th of July like they did every year, but would never have the chance to do again.

“All of her friends and her family can see what a huge light of our lives is,” Fine said, “and this man stole our friend away from us and she’s gone way too soon. And, it’s just not fair.”

Lueck’s friends said people closely following this case have speculated that Ajayi’s heritage as an African man who “survived a tyrannical dictatorship, escaped a real-life crime, traveled internationally,” according to an author page on Amazon, somehow played a role in his alleged crime, but the girls said his race was irrelevant.

“Evil comes in every color, every gender. Just because you know Mackenzie was white and he is African-American, the suspect, it doesn’t matter to me,” Fine said. “It doesn’t matter to me, it doesn’t play a part in this story, it never played a part in this story. Mackenzie’s death and murder did not have anything to do with race. It had to do with an evil person with bad intentions who is a danger to society.”

“I’d feel [a] strong amount of hate for not just him because of his color, that shouldn’t matter. Her color doesn’t matter. It was just an evil, sick person,” Kvam said.

“We are not holding him accountable because of his skin color,” Stoner added. “We are holding him accountable because of his actions and because he just murdered our best friend.”

Lueck’s friends, who quickly started making phone calls, hanging up missing person’s photos in the downtown Salt Lake area and spreading the word of her disappearance on social media when they got the news, said they will appear at every court hearing throughout Ajayi’s trial and plan to “advocate for the harshest, harshest punishment by law,” Fine said. However, she stopped short of declaring they would vouch for the death penalty, which is still an option in the state of Utah.

Fine, Kvam and Stoner said that the community’s support and outpouring of help from families who also suffered the loss of a missing person have inspired them to start a non-profit organization they hope to call “Mackenzie’s Voice,” an ode to their friend who “didn’t have a voice through this process,” Stoner said. The girls said they hoped the organization would let others who’ve endured kidnapping, assault or other traumas get the support and resources they need to cope.

“I wish I could take all of her pain away from what she went through,” Stoner said, getting emotional. “I just don’t really know the words to say how I’m feeling.”

Fox News Exclusives: Trump on possible trade deal with China; Friends of Utah student discuss her killing

Good morning and welcome to Fox News First. Here’s what you need to know as you start the new work week and the new month …

Fox News Exclusive: Trump tells Tucker Carlson he’s optimistic about trade deal with China, slams Big Tech bias
President Trump expressed optimism about a possible trade deal between his administration and Chinese President Xi Jinping, during an interview with Tucker Carlson set to air Monday night on Fox News. Trump had met with Xi during the G20 summit in Osaka and described the meeting as “excellent” before saying the two countries were “back on track.” “We had a very good meeting,” the president said. “He wants to make a deal. I want to make a deal. Very big deal, probably, I guess you’d say the largest deal ever made of any kind, not only trade.”

Trump sat down with Carlson during the president’s trip, which included stops in Osaka, Japan, for the G20 summit, and a first-of-its kind visit by a U.S. president to North Korea, meeting with dictator Kim Jong Un at the Demilitarized Zone (DMZ), which Carlson witnessed. During the interview, the president also ripped alleged biases from Big Tech, which includes Facebook, Google and Twitter, saying, ” They were totally against me.  I won … They fought me very hard.  I mean, I heard that and they’re fighting me hard right now.”

Trump and Kim agree to revive talks on nuke problem in historic visit, but what’s next?
President Trump made history this weekend by becoming first sitting U.S. president to set foot in North Korea when he took 20 steps into the Hermit Kingdom. The event in the Demilitarized Zone also included a roughly 50-minute meeting behind closed doors, the first face-to-face sit-down between the two since their failed summit in Hanoi in February. The two leaders have agreed to revive talks on North Korea’s nuclear program, with Trump saying “speed is not the object” and “we’re looking to get it right.”

The president’s critics, especially Democrats looking to run against him in 2020, are skeptical and have called the latest meeting between Trump and Kim another elaborate photo-op and accused the president of “coddling” dictators. Other critics have wondered whether Trump will ever reach an actual deal with Kim, noting that nothing of substance was achieved in their previous two meetings. Still, Harry J. Kazianis, director of Korean Studies at the Center for the National Interest, wonders whether Trump’s unconventional diplomatic approach to North Korea is worthy of a Nobel Prize. Stay tuned.

Kudlow: No ‘amnesty’ for Huawei
White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow on Sunday tamped down expectations of a quick resolution of the U.S.-China trade dispute, adding that President Trump’s decision to let Chinese telecom giant Huawei buy some additional U.S. products is “not a general amnesty.” Trump announced Saturday that U.S. suppliers will be allowed to sell components to Chinese telecom giant Huawei following talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping. In an interview on “Fox News Sunday,” Kudlow said Trump’s move does not mean the administration no longer regards Huawei as a surveillance agency of the Chinese Communist Party. Still, U.S. stock futures jumped ahead of Monday’s open as investors reacted to the progress between the U.S. and China at the G20 Summit.

Many 2020 Dems on the chopping block
The Democratic Party’s crowded field of 2020 presidential candidates could quickly shrink as more than half of the contenders are in real danger of failing to meet tougher requirements to participate in the fall round of debates. Short on support and money and bound by tough party rules, once soaring politicians may soon be seen as also-rans. They include: Julian Castro, the former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development under President Obama who is trying to capitalize on his strong debate performance last week; Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, one of her party’s most outspoken feminists; and Sen. Cory Booker, who first rose to stardom as the energetic mayor of Newark, N.J. Of the 20 candidates who qualified for the first round of debates in June and July, just six right now are sure to appear in the September-October round, when the Democratic National Committee requires participants to hit 2 percent in multiple polls and 130,000 individual donors. – Associated Press

Kentucky father dies in hospital next to newborns, week after being gunned down outside same hospital: report

A Kentucky man who was shot moments after visiting his newborn twins in the hospital last week, died next to his children in the same hospital where they were born after he was taken off life support Friday, according to a report.

Tyrese Garvin, 20, was gunned down June 23 while walking home from Louisville’s University Hospital, where he’d just witnessed the birth of his first children, a boy and a girl who were about a week old, the Courier-Journal reported.

Garvin was taken to the same hospital where his children were born to be treated for multiple gunshot wounds in his body and head.

He remained in intensive care until Friday afternoon, when he was taken off life support and pronounced dead, the Courier-Journal reported. The mother of his children had reportedly taken the twins to lay beside their father until he gave his last breaths.

A GoFundMe page set up by the family for funeral costs described Garvin as “selfless, respectful, and honest,” who “would look you in the eye with a firm handshake while calling you ma’am or sir.”

“Tyrese was taken from us way too soon, as he was a victim of the ongoing gun and gang violence surrounding the Louisville area,” the page said.

Three suspects, aged 14 to 17, have been arrested in connection with the shooting but the charges against them were unclear. Their names have not been released due to their status as minors.

Tyrese Garvin, 20, was gunned down June 23 while walking home from Louisville’s University Hospital, where he’d just witnessed the birth of his first children, a boy and a girl who were about a week old, the Courier-Journal reported.

Garvin was taken to the same hospital where his children were born to be treated for multiple gunshot wounds in his body and head.

He remained in intensive care until Friday afternoon, when he was taken off life support and pronounced dead, the Courier-Journal reported. The mother of his children had reportedly taken the twins to lay beside their father until he gave his last breaths.

A GoFundMe page set up by the family for funeral costs described Garvin as “selfless, respectful, and honest,” who “would look you in the eye with a firm handshake while calling you ma’am or sir.”

“Tyrese was taken from us way too soon, as he was a victim of the ongoing gun and gang violence surrounding the Louisville area,” the page said.

Three suspects, aged 14 to 17, have been arrested in connection with the shooting but the charges against them were unclear. Their names have not been released due to their status as minors.

Arizona couple miraculously survives after Jeep careens over 80-foot cliff: report

An Arizona couple miraculously survived careening down a cliff Thursday evening after their Jeep tumbled off a dark dirt road, reports said.

The couple, Shanelle Bates and Matthew Kunowski, told AzFamily.com that they were driving north of Lake Roosevelt in the Tonto National Forest. Kunowski reportedly took his eyes off the road “for a split second” before the fall.

She told the outlet that she used to dream that she was falling off a cliff and said she thought she was “dreaming again.”

Bates remained stuck in the vehicle and Kunowski was tossed from the vehicle. They reportedly hiked for two hours until they found a cabin and called authorities. They both suffered injuries. She said Kunowski’s face is “wired shut.”

Kentucky farmers say federally protecting vultures are terrorizing livestock: report

Kentucky farmers say they have little recourse against federally-protected vultures, which have increasingly been terrorizing their livestock to death, according to a Wednesday report.

The black and turkey vultures, which are native to Kentucky, consume newborn calves, full-grown ewes and lambs alive by pecking them to death, farmers say.

Farmers in Kentucky say they’ve noticed an increasing number of black and turkey vultures terrorizing their livestock.  (nature.mdc.mo.gov)

“With a vulture, it’s like someone came in with a skinning knife,” said Derek Lawson of Foxhollow Farm in Oldham County. “It’s all clean cuts. Usually, the hide’s completely cut off, whereas with a coyote or dogs, it’ll be torn and jagged.”

Farmers lose around $300,000 to $500,000 worth of livestock to these native vultures each year, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. The animals are federally-protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918.

Lawson told the Louisville Courier-Journal there has been a significant increase of vultures in the area since 2009. He said his 2019 calving season began with him seeing six vultures pecking a calf to death.

Special federal $100 annual permits are required before a person can kill vultures. Without these, farmers face a fine of $15,000 or six months in jail.

But despite the nuisance of these birds, some farmers they are sometimes necessary for the ecosystem because they dispose cleanly of animal carcasses.

“You gotta have those lines,” Lawson said. “They are a necessary part of the ecosystem. Otherwise we’d just have dead stuff just laying around, slowly rotting over time. They kinda speed things up.”
