Laken Hope Riley went for a jog around the University of Georgia campus and was murdered in broad daylight by a “non-US citizen.”
The suspect: 26-year-old Jose Antonio Ibarra.
Ibarra did not know Riley. This was described as a “crime of opportunity” by “an individual who woke up with bad intentions.”
Investigators of the case released a statement Friday evening:
“We are obtaining arrest warrants for Jose Antonio Ibarra, 26 years of age. He lives here in Athens (Georgia) but is not a US citizen.
“He has been charged with the following: malice murder, felony murder, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, false imprisonment, kidnapping, hindering a 911 call, and concealing the death of another.
“He will be transported to the Clark County jail. We have also served a search warrant on his apartment and continue to collect evidence. There are no indications of a continuing threat to the community related to this case at this time.”
