According to the St. George Police Department, authorities have been investigating the death of 33-year-old Elizabeth Carter, who was found dead in her apartment near 500 North Bluff Street June 13.

Police say the condition of her apartment and other suspicious circumstances prompted them to begin an “all hands on deck” investigation.

“A person of interest was quickly developed and physical evidence continued to build a foundation to believe Elizabeth was killed by Kevin Ray Mcatlin,” St. George Police said.

Police secured a warrant for 28-year-old Mcatlin’s arrest Friday.

Authorities arrested him in the Moab area early Saturday morning.

St. George Police say they are not releasing any further details about the investigation due to the complex and technically-challenging nature of the case.

“At this time, we want to take a moment to express our sincere condolences on behalf of the St. George Police Department to the family and friends of Elizabeth Carter. You are in our thoughts during this difficult time,” Police stated.

Loved ones have created a GoFundMe page to assist the family with funeral services, which are scheduled for June 23 at 10 a.m. Services will be held at an LDS Church at 1178 South 700 West in Hurricane.
