UPDATE: 5/23/13 – Jahleel Hoskins, 25, was charged with murder in connection to the death of Latrice Maze. He testified he killed her and then put her body in a trash bin. Her body has yet to be found.
UPDATE 5/6/13 – Jahleel Hoskins, Maze’s boyfriend was arrested by Grand Rapids police on April 23rd on what is being called a “parole hold”. Target 8 uncovered court records linking Hoskins to a homicide investigation and that another man, Gregory Shanklin, was arrested the same day as Hoskins for lying to prosecutors during an investigation.
Police said Shanklin was under oath when he “lied about knowledge of associates’ contact with a gun and/or contact/communication with Jahleel Hoskins.”
The family was called into the police station and were told that Maze’s case had turned into a homicide investigation. Maze is still missing.
UPDATE: Per Nancy Grace, “Since her disappearance, there has been no digital footprint or trace of Maze. Maze’s family says she does have a cell phone but the battery died, so there is no way for police to trace or “ping” her phone. Also, none of Maze’s credit or debit cards have been used. Maze does not have a personal computer, but a source reveals there have been some disturbing threats against Maze posted on Facebook. Details of those threats have not been disclosed. The Grand Rapids Police Department Major Case Team is investigating.”
