Police arrest 16-year-old in connection with death of Denver boy

Posted: Updated:

DENVER – Denver police say they have a 16-year-old girl in custody in connection with the death of 7-year-old Jordan Vong.

Jordan was reported missing on Monday evening and officers found his body “intentionally concealed” inside the home just before 9 p.m. Tuesday. The teen is being held on investigation of first-degree murder.

Jordan was reported missing on Monday night, hours after he was last seen in the Montbello neighborhood near Chambers Road and Bolling Drive.

By Tuesday afternoon, Denver police officers, along with FBI agents, had scoured nearby parks, around the Rocky Mountain Arsenal and two nearby ponds with no sign of the child.

Denver Police Division Chief Joseph Montoya said that the identity of the teenager or how she is known to the family will not be released to the public.

Montoya said Jordan’s body was discovered after police obtained a search warrant for the family home. He also said that Jordan’s body was intentionally concealed.

The first search of the home happened on Monday shortly after Jordan was reported missing.

A community vigil for Jordan Vong is planned for Wednesday at 7 p.m. to 8:30 pm at Greenwood Elementary, located at 5130 Durham Court in Denver. The public is invited.

Jordan’s aunt has created a GoFundMe Page for a memorial service.
