Detectives in Washington County have detained a male juvenile following the shooting death of a Toquerville woman whose body was found Wednesday morning.
Washington County sheriff's Sgt. Dave Crouse described the boy as a "person of interest" and would not release his name or age or any identifying information about the woman who died.
Just after midnight, a burglary was reported at a Toquerville home, Crouse said. While deputies were en route, investigators received a tip that a boy who may have been connected with the burglary was fueling a car at a gas station in nearby Washington City. The boy already had left when officers arrived, but the tipster provided a license plate number, which investigators traced back to a registered owner with an address in Toquerville
