On Aug. 5, 2019, police were called to the home of Arthur Jensen, 53, in Sheldon after neighbors heard yelling and screaming.
Once at the scene, Jense told police, “There’s a girl inside and I strangled her.”
Inside the residence, officers located the body of Adara Bunn, 17, strangled to death, as Jensen claimed.
Investigators determined Bunn was at Jensen’s home the weekend before her murder for a neighborhood rummage sale. At the time, Jensen told her he had Disney cups she could buy, which is why she returned to his home the following Monday, according to police.
