Ayoola & # 39; AJ & # 39; Ajayi, 31, has been accused of killing Mackenzie Lueck and burning her body in his backyard in Salt Lake City
The man accused of murdering the Utah woman Mackenzie Lueck and burning her body in his backyard had tried to have a secret sex church built in his basement, a contractor says.
Meanwhile, the police said on Friday evening that they had found the mattress that was at the home of the suspect and were considered important evidence. However, they did not provide any further information about the mattress.
Ajayi first suggested that Wolf create a & # 39; secret door & # 39; would build to a space of about four by nine feet, the contractor told Fox News.
But Wolf says that Ajayi & # 39; gradually started stepping into more stuff, such as a thumb lock on it with a fingerprint lock and isolating the sound, and hooking the concrete – it was just weird what he asked me. & # 39 ;
Ajayi insisted on an explanation and said he wanted a secret alcohol room to hide it from his Mormon girlfriend, and soundproof so that he could sit inside and listen to music, Wolf said.
Lueck, who boasted online of having & # 39; sugar daddies & # 39; who exchanged financial favors for sex, disappeared on June 17 after taking a Lyft from the airport to a park

& # 39; He just said his girlfriend was coming to town and had to do it before she got there because she was a Mormon girl. He said she was white, & said Wolf.
Wolf said he & # 39; weird & # 39; was off work and told the man that he was too busy to carry out the project.
& # 39; Some people say that I should have called the police, & # 39; he said. & # 39; But how should I call the police and say: & # 39; Hey, this guy wants me to build a weird room in his basement, & # 39; & # 39; said Wolf.
Ajayi, born in Nigeria, is accused of aggravated murder, aggravated kidnapping, desecration of a corpse and impediment of justice. He is being held without a bond in Salt Lake County prison.
The former army IT specialist was pictured when he was arrested on Friday by a number of armed SWAT officers outside his 1028 S West Temple home.
Shortly thereafter, the investigators accused him of murdering Lueck, 23, who disappeared on June 17 after taking a Lyft from the airport to a park far away from her apartment in Salt Lake.
On Friday afternoon, a number of armed officers were shown taking the man into custody outside a house at 1000 South, Temple West
The Salt Lake City police refused to confirm the identity of the man to DailyMail.com, but the photographed individual matches Ajayi's description
Ajayi had been with the Army for nearly two years as an Information Technology Specialist, before leaving in June 2016, his LinkedIn said
Researchers conducted a 19-hour search for an Ajayi's home in a middle class neighborhood on the west side of Salt Lake City in the early hours of Thursday, identifying him as a & # 39; person of interest & # 39 ;.
Salt Lake City police commissioner, Mike Brown, revealed in a press conference on Friday afternoon that an excavation of the property's garden & # 39; female human tissue & # 39; has burned, which was later compared by forensic experts with Lueck & # 39; s DNA.
A number of the 23-year-old's personal belongings could also be found among the charred remains.
According to Brown, Teresa Draheim, a neighbor of Ajayi, had warned the suspect who burned in his backyard on June 17 and 18 with gasoline, a few hours after Lueck was last seen alive.
Police confirmed that Lueck's remains and personal items were found in a & # 39; burnt area & # 39; in the backyard.
Ajayi was detained on Friday morning at 9:20 am, where he will be accused of murder, kidnapping and profanation of a corpse.
According to police, he met Lueck at Hatch Park in the early hours of the morning on June 17, believing they had met online, referring to an & # 39; online profile & # 39; but not to specify which site.
Lueck & # 39; s latest messages were & # 39; with the arrested & # 39 ;, said Chief Brown. The suspect and the victim's telephones both received a # 3 & 3 within the minute & # 39; pinged in Hatch Park.
According to the police, Lueck's telephone did not share any further data or location services from that moment.
Ajayi allegedly admitted by text on June 16 that he corresponded with Lueck, but later denied further contacts and said he had never arrived to meet the killed girl girl.
He is said to have told the police that he has no idea what she looks like, but researchers say they have found photos of Lueck on his phone, including photos of her & # 39; s online profile & # 39 ;
Chief Brown described the moment when he informed Lueck & # 39; s family that her remains were found to be the & # 39; most difficult phone call I ever had to make & # 39 ;.
He described the victim's family as & # 39; deeply sad and devastated & # 39 ;, and passed on their thanks to members of the Salt Lake City police and members of the public who helped in their search for MacKenzie.
& # 39; We will continue to look at this situation to see if [Ajayi] has had any help, or whether he has acted alone, & # 39; Brown concluded.

& # 39; Ezekiel was almost 15 when he witnessed a horrible murder. A furious crowd burned his neighbor alive in the street and the man died at his feet, & a book synopsis reads.
& # 39; Unfortunately, it wasn't the last time he witnessed such horror. With his highly respected father as a guide and mentor, Ezekiel saw this death, then a death much closer to home when a loved one was killed in the same brutal, frightening way at 50 feet from him, and he could do nothing to stop it. & # 39;
The book claims to be & # 39; inspired by true events & # 39 ;.

But if they don't know, they're not really worth your time & # 39 ;, says Lueck's comment.
& # 39; Set your age preferences from 35+. You will have the best luck there. Private message me, if you have more questions! I have experience. & # 39;
