A friend of a 16-year-old rodeo girl who was found dead earlier this month was arrested for her murder.
Student Gabrielle (Britney) Lynn Ujlaky was last seen on March 8 outside of Spring Creek High School, Nevada, after allegedly telling her father she was getting a ride with boyfriend Bryce Dickey, 18.

Her body was found between the city of Elko and the Spring Creek community, approximately 15 miles away.
The Elko County Sheriff agency announced earlier this week that they were investigating death as a possible Monday murder.
It is believed that Dickey was one of Ujlaky’s friends of the rodeo.
He told investigators that he had given her a ride, but Ujlaky was picked up by a “mysterious cowboy hat man driving a green Ford pickup truck,” Daily beast reported.
Researchers now believe that such an observation is completely fabricated.

“Investigators are continuing to follow up on the case that is still active,” the Elko County Sheriff’s Office said Friday. “The tip line is currently closed.”
Ujlaky’s father, James, said she trusted Dickey and that the two had been friends with the rodeo community for years.
“There’s no worse than this,” said James The Daily Beast. “Because she really thought he was a good friend.”
“She trusted everyone. She always saw the right thing. If someone did something wrong, she would call you for everyone. She would expose you for who you were, get in hell or high water. ‘

In the days since her disappearance, Dickey had posted on his Facebook page how much he missed Ujlaky.
“We all got news yesterday that brought us to the ground. Around 8am, we all started coming together to mourn and mourn Britney’s life. It was taken far too quickly. That day I had tears of pain and joy. I wish she could have seen the number of us gathering to honor your sister. We love you so much. Just know that you will never be forgotten. ‘
Ujlaky has worked in the rodeo circuit for years and her Facebook shows show that she enjoyed it a lot
