DENVER (KDVR) – An arrest was made Friday night in connection to the death of a 14-year-old boy who was found in Denver’s Marston neighborhood in early August.

A press conference was held on Saturday evening to brief the public on the latest progress made in this case by investigators, during which it was revealed that the suspect in custody is a 17-year-old male.

His identity will not be released due to his status as a minor.

According to DPD, the victim in this case, Josiaz “JoJo” Aragon, 14, attended school with the suspect last year and over the summer the pair had reportedly been discussing the sale of a firearm.

Investigators revealed that the two were in the middle of that transaction on Aug. 8 when the suspect, who is now in custody, allegedly assaulted, robbed and killed Aragon.

It has not yet been decided whether or not the suspect will be tried as an adult or a minor. DPD said that they are looking into whether or not others were involved in this crime, but so far there has been no evidence that supports that theory.

On the night of Josiaz “JoJo” Aragon death

Back on Aug. 8, just before 1:20 p.m., Denver police officers were called to the Southwest Recreation Center at 9200 W. Saratoga Pl., where a dead individual had been reported.

Once they arrived, they found 14-year-old Josiaz “JoJo” Aragon dead with what they described as apparent signs of trauma.

After the Denver Medical Examiner’s office completed the autopsy, it was revealed that Aragon had died from “multiple sharp and blunt force injuries with a gunshot wound.”

Several weeks after this homicide investigation was launched, investigators identified the juvenile they believe to be responsible for the death of Aragon. An arrest warrant was obtained on Friday and later that evening, an unnamed 17-year-old male was taken into custody.
