Officers obtained surveillance video from the area, which they then shared on the department's Facebook page. The footage revealed a person of interest in the murder.

On May 7, a woman called police and said her daughter, 26-year-old Kenyetta Hayes, was the person in the video and she later escorted her to speak with investigators, according to WREG-TV.

Hayes claimed the victim allegedly offered to pay her $60 for oral sex at a Marathon gas station.

She went with the man to the park under the false pretenses that she was going to engage in the sexual act, but she planned on on robbing him instead, according to police.
