Another arrest made for 2017 homicide in Las Vegas

Posted by Neil Shouse | Jan 23, 2018 | 0 Comments

Last week Las Vegas police arrested 19-year-old Latrell Stanley for allegedly participating in last March's murder of 19-year old Alyssa Sayago. Stanley also faces charges for robbery, conspiracy, and first-degree kidnapping. Police have already arrested 18-year-old Khari James and 19-year-old Daelin Wagner for the same charges.

Police believe the perpetrators lured Sayago to a vacant house in northwest Las Vegas for what she thought would be a marijuana drug deal. She then suffered a fatal gunshot wound to her head. Wagner allegedly spearheaded the operation according to investigators.

The police arrested Stanley because his fingerprints were allegedly found at the crime scene. Additionally, Stanley allegedly matched the description a witness gave of a person who fled the crime scene. He is incarcerated at the Clark County Detention Center and is being held without bail

"Arrests like Stanley's which occur so long after the crime raise a lot of troubling questions," posited Las Vegas criminal defense attorney Michael Becker. "The more time that goes by, the more likely the crime scene has been contaminated, or that the original suspects have implicated an innocent party in attempt to get better plea deals for themselves."
