TPD releases tapes in Jayden Glomb murder investigation

Posted: Updated:

Recently released tapes from the Tucson Police Department shed light into the investigation of Joshua Lelevier, who has been charged with his stepdaughter’s murder.

The body of 13 year-old Jayden Glomb was found in Vail on May 11th. Her stepfather, Joshua Lelevier, was arrested weeks later.

In addition to murder and abandonment/concealment of a body, he is also accused of filming the young girl in her bathroom.

The new tapes contain hours of interviews between detectives and people who knew Jayden best.

Several of her friends, who are underage and are not identified in the tapes, are interviewed to gain a glimpse into Jayden’s relationship with her stepfather.

One friend told detectives Jayden did not like being around her stepfather. She also said she’d heard that he could be abusive, but was not sure if it was true or a rumor.

There is also an interview with a friend of Jayden’s mother, Jessica Lelevier. That friend stayed with the family following Jayden’s death, and told detectives that she was disturbed by Joshua’s behavior in the weeks leading up to his arrest.

The tapes also contain interviews with Jessica Lelevier, who has since filed for divorce. In one interview, detectives discuss a May 22 incident, in which Joshua Lelevier called the Pima County Sheriff's Officer to say he had been attacked in his backyard by an unknown person.

Deputies responded, but did not find anything.

In the video, Jessica admits to detectives that she did not feel right about Joshua’s story on that night, but could not put her finger on what was off. She insists she never saw Joshua acting abusive towards Jayden and, while the two would argue, she would also confide in her stepfather.

When she was informed of Joshua’s arrest, she breaks down in the video. Jessica Lelevier has since filed for divorce.

Joshua Lelevier’s trial is scheduled to begin on July 10th.
