Utah police: Teen murder victim was on phone with mom during attack

Utah police: Teen murder victim was on phone with mom during attack

"She was on the phone checking in with her mother after arriving home from school, when she was violently attacked" Shearer said.

'Her mother heard the attack going on and then the phone went dead.

Baleigh Bagshaw (left) was found dead inside her Utah home on Monday.

Once the phone went dead, Bagshaw's mother contacted a neighbor as well as police.

Authorities say that French and Baleigh had a sexual relationship - and indeed, at the time of Baleigh's murder he had an active warrant for unlawful sexual acts with a minor.

It's not clear what brought French to Colorado. Police are not yet announcing Bagshaw's official cause of death, according to Shearer.

Police said that certain "evidence" was 'widely spread throughout the home and throughout the area'.

Walmart to acquire 73% in Flipkart at $20 Billion Valuation?
If the deal with Walmart goes through, it would provide Flipkart with more arsenal to go up against Amazon in the Indian market. The newspaper report that Walmart wants Group CEO Binny Bansal and Krishnamurthy to have more crucial rules in the company.

"He'd had a previous sexual relationship with Baleigh, he'd also lived in the home with [her] for some time", Sgt. Shearer said.

French had moved in with the family in February 2017, when Baleigh was 14 and he was 23. He was previously considered a person of interest.

"She was really sweet", Gwendolyn Robinson, who works at Leatherby's, told Deseret News.

French was described as "armed and dangerous" and is being hunted on three counts of unlawful sexual activity with a minor.

A former high school classmate of French told KUTV that she was not surprised by the news of his arrest.

He is thought to be driving a camouflage-painted Daihatsu SUV with a Wyoming license plate number 19-13974 along the Interstate 80 towards Cleveland, Ohio.

A GoFundMe page that was set up Tuesday, apparently to cover the teen's funeral costs, had raised more than $8,800 by Wednesday afternoon. But when the vehicle left Bangerter Highway and headed east in the westbound lanes of state Route 201 with its headlights off, police terminated their pursuit, said Utah Highway Patrol Lt. Todd Royce.
