Investigators say Parker and her boyfriend, 22-year-old Cedrick Watahomigie, went to the Mohave County Fair the night before with a group of friends before going to the apartment complex.
"Initial information was conflicting and inconsistent, however it eventually became apparent that Watahomigie was the last person to be with Parker before she was found unresponsive," police said in a statement on Oct. 7.
Police say Parker and Watahomigie were arguing in the parking lot when Watahomigie pushed Parker, causing her to fall and hit her head.
On Wednesday, Watahomigie turned himself in to police and admitted to being involved in the incident. He was booked into jail and is accused of manslaughter.
