Man dies after being found stabbed in Mesa Goodwill parking lot; suspect arrested

Police say a suspect has been arrested for murder after a man died after being found stabbed in the parking lot of a Mesa Goodwill store.

Johnathan Gliege, 32, was not breathing when officers found him at a location near Gilbert Road and University Drive just before 7 p.m. on Jan. 17, Mesa Police said.

Gliege "had injuries to his body that appear to be the result of foul play," police said.

The 32-year-old was taken to a hospital where he eventually died.

Investigators say officers found that Gliege had been texting a person by the name of "Angel" and was set to meet that person at the Goodwill on the day he was murdered.

"A search warrant was served on the cell phone number for 'Angel' and came back registered to Luis Angel Nunez at an address close to Goodwill," police said. "The data also showed Nunez’s phone hitting cell phone towers in the area and at the time of the homicide."

Police said a witness also saw Nunez at the scene of the murder.

On Feb. 9, Nunez was arrested and booked into jail and is being held on a $500,000 bond. He is accused of second-degree murder.
