Arizona cops said late thursday that they have tracked down and arrested a man in connection with the murder of Lauren Heike, a 29-year-old hiker who was killed a week ago from behind in a “brutal attack”.

The suspect, who has not been named as of Friday morning, is thought to be 23, was DNA-linked to the stabbing and was arrested near the Catherine Townhomes on North Scottsdale Rd., less than a mile from the desert area near 6500 Libby Street where Heike’s body was found last Saturday, the day after he died.
