The Uintah County Sheriff’s Office said 23-year-old Jesse Anthony Saenz of Fort
Duchesne was arrested Monday by police in Glendale, Ariz.
Uintah County Undersheriff John Laursen said Saenz was found driving the car of
22-year-old Elvis Zachary Olsen of Roosevelt.
Olsen’s body was found Sunday in Ft. Duchesne on the Ute Indian Reservation in Utah.
Saenz had been released on bail pending a July trial on kidnapping, sexual
