A well-known company employee was accused of killing a female colleague. Before the murder, the female colleague had turned down his proposal. It is being told that after this, the employee was angry and later, he took the girl’s life. The colleague’s body was recovered from the company’s premises.
The incident is from Colorado, US, where 17-year-old Riley Whitelaw and 28-year-old Joshua Johnson worked in the pharmacy company Walgreens. Whitelaw had complained to the manager several times about Johnson. Whitelaw alleged that after she turned down Johnson’s proposal, he began to harass her.
Meanwhile, on June 11, the company’s manager found Whitelaw’s body in the break room, according to ‘Daily Mail’. When Whitelaw did not return for a long time after the lunch break, the manager started looking for her. But he found Whitelaw’s dead body.
After this, the police who reached the spot saw that Whitelaw had bruises on his neck and was bleeding. There was a lot of blood on the floor too. Later, the police started looking for Johnson on the manager’s complaint. The manager said that Whitelaw had complained to him about Johnson. He also asked Johnson to change the shift to compensate for the distance.
Another female manager, Ishmael, told police that Johnson was “jealous” since Whitelaw’s boyfriend started working at the same company three months ago. At the same time, a person said that he had heard Whitelaw’s screaming on the day of the murder. Johnson was also seen covering the cameras on CCTV.
While people were embroiled in the Whitelaw murder case, Johnson was in the bathroom. The smell of bleach was coming from him. But on being asked, he said that he was changing clothes. On coming out, people saw scratch marks on his hands and face.
What did Johnson say after being arrested?
On June 12, the day after the murder, Johnson was arrested from a place far away from the city. During interrogation, he said that he had fallen in love with Whitelaw. But she has no role in the murder, as she is now in a relationship with the company’s other manager, Ishmael. However, the manager has not said anything about this. At present, the investigation of the matter is going on.
