The Murder of Jaelynn Alston

Jaelynn Alston was brutally murdered in Phoenix, Arizona during January 2020. The teen had been reported missing on January 9th, 2020 after she fell out of touch with her family. A week later, Jaelynn's body was found inside an office building near 43rd Avenue and Indian School Road. She had suffered several extensive injuries and it appeared that she had been deceased for several days.

Jaelynn's family members describe her as an independent person who had aspirations of becoming a nurse. She had just recently celebrated her 18th birthday prior to her untimely death. According to her father, Jimmie Alston, Jaelynn's new status as a legal adult led to her independence growing further. It became normal for Jaelynn to come and go for a few days at a time - but she always kept in touch with her loved ones. 

Jaelynn was last seen by her family members around 11:00 PM on New Year's Eve, December 31st, 2019. Over the following few days, she kept in touch with her father via text and remained active on social media. Jaelynn's father last heard from her on January 5th, 2020. After that, she fell out of touch and stopped posting on social media. Her father reported her missing a few days later. 

On January 16th, 2020, a cleaning crew at the west Phoenix office building reported an odor coming from one of the rooms. The room was subsequently opened, and the body of a teen girl - later identified as Jaelynn - was found inside. It was clear that she had been the victim of a brutal murder. 

In 2021, it was reported that the man who leased the room where Jaelynn was found is considered a person of interest. However, this man has never been publicly identified. Since then, very few details about the investigation into Jaelynn's murder have been revealed.
