Montgomery County Police Chief Marcus Jones announced Monday the arrest of a 17-year-old in connection to the murder of Jailyn Jones. Investigators believe others were involved and want anyone with additional information to come forward.
Jailyn Jones was found dead in a small creek near Great Seneca Highway in Germantown on Jan. 24 after his mom reported the 17-year-old missing. Chief Jones said upon removal from the water, investigators noticed Jones was stabbed multiple times and had wounds to his head and torso.
Police say DNA evidence found on Jailyn Jones’ boots and jeans link Ta’Quawn Deon Henderson to the homicide case.
