A 28-year-old man was arrested Thursday for the murder of University of North Carolina student Faith Hedgepeth who was beaten to death in an off-campus apartment in 2012.

Miguel Enrique Salguero Olivares was charged with first degree murder after his DNA was compared to the crime scene, authorities said at a news conference.

However, few details have been released about the defendant or whether she knew Hedgepeth, who she was 19 when she was killed.

“Tragedy hit this church, our church, nine years and nine days ago,” Chapel Hill Chief of Police Chris Blue told reporters.

“We asked him to trust us,” he continued. “We promised him that one day we would make an arrest. Today we can announce that we have kept that promise. ”

Hedgepeth’s tearful parents thanked the police and God for the arrest.

“When I heard the news this morning, all I did was cry and thank God and praise God,” Connie Hedgepeth told the press conference, moved. “Because I put it in her hands and that was his moment. I don’t know why it took so long, but I know it was him.

Father Roland Hedgepeth said he was grateful to God for allowing him to “stay alive and see this day”.

Faith was in second grade when her roommate returned home on September 7, 2012 and found her dead in a bloody scene, WTVD reported. Faith had gone to a local club with her roommate, but she returned to the apartment the day before and she fell asleep, according to The Herald Sun.

A handwritten note on a fast food bag believed to have been written by the killer was reportedly found next to Faith’s body.

Four years after the murder, the police released the contents of the memo, which allegedly seemed to say, “I AM NOT STUPID (explicit) JALOUS,” WRAL-TV reported.

An autopsy later revealed that the student had been raped, according to WTVD. Investigators have not said whether Salguero-Olivares will be charged with s*x crimes.
