15-year-old arrested in death of 10-year-old Colorado girl

Thornton Police said the teen was arrested late Saturday and taken to a juvenile detention facility.

They said the little girl was last seen with a 15-year-old who is the son of Kiaya's father's girlfriend.

The body is believed to be that of a 10-year-old girl who went missing during a heavy rainstorm in Thornton on Wednesday night.

Her body was found the next day about 1.5 miles from her father's house.

"During the course of this investigation several local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, to include the Thornton Fire Department, Adams County School District 12 and many other search and rescue teams assisted the Thornton Police Department".

Investigators are still working to figure out a possible motive behind her death.

"Because of his status as a juvenile, his name is not being released", police said in a statement. "That's why we're keeping it close to the make sure we get a successful prosecution at the end of this".

A coroner found that the death was not accidental, but the exact cause of death has not been released.

Authorities have not said if the 15-year-old in custody is the same teen who was with Campbell before she went missing.

She frequently posted videos on YouTube that gained thousands of views. They arrested the teenager Saturday night at 11:38 p.m.

A GoFundMe page set up by the girl's mother has exceeded $14,000 as of Monday.

Police searched the area near where Campbell's body was found Thursday, and completed their investigation in that area at around 3 p.m.

Families add on to memorials for 10 yr old Kiaya Campbell with stuffed animals and balloons.
