Girl, 17, K’il’led In Walgreens Break Room After Rep’orting Co-Worker’s Advances To Manager

A 17-year-old girl in Colorado Springs tragically di’ed in her workplace after a susp’ected confrontation with her Walgreens co-worker. Po’lice a’rres’ted a 28-year-old man in connection to the m’urd’er of Riley Whitelaw. Before Riley was k’ill’ed, she reported being “uncomfortable” around the sus’pect to a manager who put them on the same work shifts.

According to KKTV, the Colorado Springs Pol’ice Department said Whitelaw was found de’ad at an area Walgreens on Saturday, June 11. A store manager discovered her body in the break room. The scene was reportedly blo’ody, the wit’ness said. Before a manager found Riley, a 16-year-old customer told pol’ice she was standing in the deo’dorant ais’le when she heard a female screa’ming and the sound of stall doors slam’ming.

The arr’est affidavit revealed that the vic’tim appeared to su’ffer neck inj’uries and blo’od all over the room. Her ID badge and radio earp’iece were lyi’ng near her feet.

“There were significant blo’od sta’ins on the br’eakroom floor, cabi’nets, and cou’nter. There was an identification badge on the floor and a radio earpiece… near the vic’tim’s feet.”

Teen Rejected Sus’pect’s Advances Before M’ur’der
Pol’ice a’rres’ted Riley Whitelaw’s co-worker, Joshua Johnson char’ged him with one count of M’urd’er in the First Degree. According to the ar’re’st affidavit, a Walgreens manager, Justin Zunino, reviewed the surve’illance footage. He observed the 28-year-old sta’cking bi’ns in front of the surveill’ance camera until he bloc’ked the view.

He also confirmed that someone had taped paper over the windows in the brea’k room area, and the “restroom closed” sign was placed in the area to keep people out, something that doesn’t happen until the end of the business day.

[The manager] observed an employee named Joshua Johnson stacking bins in front of a surveill’ance camera til it blo’cked the view of the camera. [The manager] stated someone had taped paper over windows in the bre’ak room area. The ‘restroom closed’ sign was in the area to keep people out, which typically does not occur til near the end of business.”

To the same manager, Whitelaw had made complaints about Johnson last year. She said Johnson had made advances toward her, which made her uncomfortable, according to court documents. Zu’nino reported he’d told Johnson to “keep things professional” and said Johnson “appeared to be receptive.”

Months later, Riley requested more hours and was told she had to work with Johnson to receive them.

During a interview with pol’ice, Johnson a’lle’gedly adm’itted to being in the break room and cla’imed he fell in the blo’od and went home to change. He appeared to have red scr’atch marks on his face and bo’dy. He also denied stack’ing the boxes in front of the camera, which is shown on video.
