17 Year Old Arrested in Rape and Murder of Janise Wright
Teenager arrested in connection to death and rape of 6-year-old Washington state girl
Kitsap County investigators have arrested a 17-year-old male who lived at the same mobile home park as Jenise Paulette Wright who was found dead on Thursday in a field near her home.
A 17-year-old male has been arrested for murder, manslaughter and rape in connection to the slaying of a Washington state girl and is being held as a juvenile. The 6 year old went unreported for almost 24 hours as she was allowed to wander the trailer park. The parents said it was a "safe" place for her.
Investigators stated the suspect is also a resident of Steele Creek Park.
He has not been identified, but the suspect will be booked into a juvenile detention facility on second-degree murder, first-degree manslaughter and first-degree rape.
It’s not clear if Jenise's family knew the suspect
