CHARGES IN MACKENZIE'S DEATH. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, SARAH. THE 31-YEAR-OLD SUSPECT RIGHT NOW SITTING IN THE SALT LAKE COUNTY JAIL. ACCORDING TO COURT RECORDS, THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THAT HE'S FACING CRIMINAL CHARGES. ABC 4'S SENIOR CRIME AND PUNISHMENT CORRESPONDENT HAS BEEN LOOKING INTO THE SUSPECT'S PAST ALL DAY TODAY. MARCOS, WHAT WERE YOU ABLE TO LEARN? Reporter: WHAT YOU'D CONSIDER A CLEAN ONE OWNER, NO CRIMINAL HISTORY WHATSOEVER, NEVER BEEN IN TROUBLE WITH THE LAW FROM THAT STANDPOINT, EXCEPT FOR A FEW TRAFFIC TICKETS, A DIVORCE, OH, THERE WAS AN EVICTION. NOW HE'S STARING AT A CRIME THAT CARRIES THE DEATH PENALTY. ON YOUTUBE A. AJAYI PORTRAYS HIMSELF AS AN AUTHOR. THERE IS A BOOK HE HAS OUT, ABOUT A MURDER WITNESSED BY A YOUNG BOY. ON SOCIAL MEDIA HE'S GOT A PAGE WHERE HE CLAIMS TO BE AN ORGANIZER OF SOCIAL EVENTS LIKE A BOOK CLUB FOR HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE. BUT WHEN YOU READ THE FINE PRINT, HIS INTERESTS ARE HEAVILY TIED TO SEX, PORNOGRAPHY AND MAKING VIDEOS. TODAY AT HIS HOME POLICE MADE IT A CRIME SCENE, FOLLOWING HIS ARREST, REPORTEDLY HE WANTED A CONTRACTOR TO BUILD HIM A ROOM IN HIS BASEMENT FEATURING SEX TOYS. A NEIGHBOR WHO HAD DEFENDED HIM FELT BETRAYED BY HIS JEKYLL AND HYDE PERSONALITY. HE WAS A VERY PRIVATE MAN, AND I SAW HIM IN ONLY ONE WAY. NEVER REALIZING THAT SOMETHING LIKE THIS COULD BE IN THE BACKGROUND. AND THAT THE MAN THAT I KNEW WOULD BE CAPABLE OF SOMETHING LIKE THIS. I WAS COMPLETELY BLIND SIDED. Reporter: AJAYI IS NOW IN COUNTY JAIL WITH NO CHANCE OF BAIL. A JUDGE WILL REFUSE THAT. RIGHT NOW HE'S PROBABLY GOING TO BE IN COURT SOMETIME LATER NEXT WEEK, OR THE WEEK AFTER THAT, FACING HIS INITIAL APPEARANCE. SO EVEN THOUGH HE HASN'T HAD ANY CRIMINAL HISTORY, CERTAINLY SOME BIZARRE EVENTS IN HIS BACKGROUND. IN THIS HOME, WE KNOW HE WAS RENTING OUT THE BASEMENT. DID ANY OF THE NEIGHBORS EVER NOTICE ANY SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY THAT MADE THEM SAY WHAT'S GOING ON OVER THERE? I THINK THEY DID, BECAUSE THEY TELL ME THEY SAW A MAN COMING INTO THE HOME. BUT THEY NEVER SAW ANYBODY LIKE MACKENZIE SHOW UP HERE AT THIS HOME WHATSOEVER, BECAUSE THERE'S A SIDE DOOR IN THE BACK, SO THEY DIDN'T REALLY SEE PERHAPS WOMEN COME IN, FOR EXAMPLE. BUT THEY WERE SAYING THESE PEOPLE WOULD COME ON FOOT, THEY WOULD COME ON MOTORIZED SCOOTERS, A LYFT AND WOULD STAY FOR A NIGHT, TWO NIGHTS, MAYBE THREE NIGHTS. BUT YOU KNOW WHAT, PEOPLE THOUGHT IT WAS ODD, BUT THEY DIDN'T LIKE IT, BUT THEY NEVER REPORTED IT TO THE CITY, LIKE CODE ENFORCEMENT. HAD THEY DONE THAT, WHO KNOWS. MARCOS, WE CAN'T HELP BUT NOTICE THE POLICE PRESENCE THAT'S STILL AT THE HOME. WHY MIGHT THEY STILL BE HERE AND THE TAPE STILL SURROUNDING THE HOME? Reporter: IN FACT, TODAY WE SAW THEM EXPAND THE CRIME SCENE. THEY PUT UP TAPE EARLY THIS MORNING, JUST TO THE ENTRANCE, THE DOOR, BUT LATE THIS AFTERNOON THEY EXPANDED IT. WHY THEY'RE DOING THAT, I ANY NOW THAT THEY KNOW THAT HE IS A SUSPECT IN THIS CRIME, THEY'RE GOING IN AND THEY'RE LOOKING AT THINGS THAT PERHAPS THEY DIDN'T BEFORE, PERHAPS THE CARPET, YOU KNOW, FORENSIC SCIENTISTS ALL ABOUT D.N.A. AND THAT'S PROBABLY WHAT THEY'RE DOING RIGHT NOW, LOOKING FOR MORE FIBERS, MORE D.N.A., TO KIND OF SEAL THIS CASE AND MAKE SURE THEY'VE GOT THIS THING ALL SEALED UP BEFORE THEY TAKE TO IT THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY'S OFFICE. EXCELLENT INSIGHT, THANK YOU SO MUCH. THROUGHOUT THIS INVESTIGATION, MACKENZIE'S FRIENDS HAVE BEEN REALLY HOPING AND PRAYING FOR HER RETURN.

  1. Another black male who rapes and murders a white girl..can't control their sexual fantasy's…sick…it's happening way more than being paid attention to..

  2. Thank the 1965 Hart-Cellar Immigration Act for this atrocity. I bet this African came in legally under the Trump administration, wouldn't be surprised at all.
