"We have evidence linking Jones to this homicide," said a Fairfield police spokesperson."

UPDATE: Fairfield police have arrested Anthony Lamar Jones, 32, of Fairfield in the homicide of Genelle Conway-Allen. 

"We have evidence linking Jones to this homicide and we believe at
this time that he acted alone," said Fairfield Police Sgt. Rebecca Belk.

Police had identified the suspect early, and kept him on 24-hour surveillance during the investigation. 

Police did not answer any questions beyond what was offered in the statement. 

According to Bay City News: 

Police also released a statement from Genelle's foster family thanking police for making the arrest. 

"All of us were so anxious for our children and community," the statement said. "Finally with tears in our hearts, we can now begin to say goodbye to sweet Genelle."

A vigil is planned for Genelle at Allan Witt Park at 6:30 p.m. today.

ORIGINAL STORY: An arrest has been made in connection with the killing of 13-year-old Suisun City girl, Genelle Conway-Allen, according to the Fairfield Police Department. 

Her body was found naked last Friday at Allan Witt Park in Fairfield. The man who found her spoke to the Fairfield Daily Republic shortly after the incident. 

"Police are holding a news conference at 11:30 a.m. at the Fairfield City Council chambers to provide further details about the case," according to Bay City News Service. 

We'll provide updates shortly after.

The looks of your command of English indicates you should still be in elementary school. I am sure after the Fairfield police had this person under surviellance for a week, they had enough evidence to move forward with an arrest. Let us see what the DNA evidence shows.

Sorry, but I don't see the resemblance.
alan February 09, 2013 at 01:56 PM
You may be right. I don't know who has the dumbest cops in the world, but I know this: To become a police officer anywhere, candidates need to complete some type of law enforcement education, whether it is through a police academy, college or the military, and they will have to pass tough psychological and physical testing. Also, they must have a clean criminal record. Those standards may preclude some of our smartest citizens, such as you and Mr. Jones, but I'd still be rather have the dumbest cop as my neighbor than either of you.

I'm sure the inmates will shred him to pieces....

I live in fairfield and have dealt with fairfield police because of my brother and my crazy ex and no they are not the dumbest in the world. You cant lump all people in one category when you dont know them all. As a criminal justice major getting my bachelors in september I agree without evidence they cant arrest. I think he did it. From what someone told me they said he may have been a so called boyfriend but who knows. Dna will prove it. Just because you know his child dont mean nothing. He could have been fronting just playing the good role model. What you do in the dark always comes to the light.

He did it an he need to be looked at for the little girl at rosemont park in Sacramento. I seen him before at a friend house. He act like he got a problem off hella E Pills an gin. His ass need to burn in hell. Who ever did need to burn in hell.
Michelle Kye February 11, 2013 at 05:45 PM
I thought that too when I saw his picture on the news. Uncanny.
Michelle Kye February 11, 2013 at 05:50 PM
I am glad to hear they have someone in custody. I hope they have the right person for the sake of our local communities. It was very scary not knowing who killed this young lady; I think all of us were looking over our shoulders and holding our children a little tigher. We will see what happens when the legal process plays out.
Michelle Kye February 11, 2013 at 05:53 PM
It would have been nice to see a local angle on this story. I don't need to come to this forum to read reprinted news...I can read it on ABC or other major new sources. I would like to see Patch reporters focus on the local stories -- how local people are reacting, what was being said at the memorial, what do the police reports say (public records), how about a little more history on our suspect? Give it a local angle!
Special K February 12, 2013 at 06:22 AM
People, let us not forget that a mother and father lost a child. I cannot believe people can find fault in the fairfield police when a monster killed an innocent child. Have the decency to pay respect for the family and save your police comments for another day! With the current technology and DNA, along with the number of FBI and federal agents involved, you best believe that this individual committed the crime.
alan February 12, 2013 at 12:26 PM
Hey Michelle, I'm a bit confused as to what local angle you want covered here. The police have understandably been very secretive with this case, but the Patch has done everything they could to pass on what news is available. Between the patch and Fairfield's Daily Republic newspaper (with most content available online and free), I have a pretty good idea of the history of the suspect.

This man has a wife and kids. He told his wife that he had a knife and a gun and that he was not going to die alone. His wife put a restraining order out on him. Then he goes out in daylight picks up a young white girl and proceeds to rape and murder her then leaves her dead in a public park naked. This sounds like a serial killer not a one time thing, no accident and no remorse. What the he'll really happened to poor sweet Genelle. I need to know. This hits too close to home.

I was born and raised in Fairfield in the 1960's when Fairfield was still a nice town. I went back to visit just last year, I couldn't believe how ghetto-trash blacks have taken over pretty much the whole town. Fairfield is now a sewer, just like Vallejo. Sorry this beautiful girl was murdered by this black animal, but it was only a matter of time
MICHAEL P WILSON "Independent Kid" February 20, 2013 at 09:50 PM
Try growing up in Detroit as I did.
alan February 21, 2013 at 11:09 AM
I'm glad you left. Were you born and raised a racist? I bet it was difficult to complete that post without using the N word.
Mary Bird February 21, 2013 at 07:01 PM
Not at all Alan. Are you one of the Destroyers or are you just a collaborator?
alan February 22, 2013 at 11:42 AM
Neither, but I still find a lot of beauty in Fairfield, Vallejo, and most of their people. I don't see the need to trash an entire race based on one man's possible actions.
Mother Mayai February 22, 2013 at 08:22 PM
This guy is a PIECE OF SHIT who has been hurting girls in Solano County for YEARS!! I HOPE YOU ROT IN PRISON AND GET TORTURED DAILY YOU SON OF A BITCH
Mother Mayai February 22, 2013 at 08:24 PM

r.ip Genelle March 02, 2013 at 04:15 PM
Mary bird you really are a races OLD ASS BITCH PERIOD.. BLACKS didn't mess up fairfield it's a small city that went wild. All races live in fairfield and to this day blacks are still not the highest percentage residing there. RACE IS NOT A FACTOR IN THIS CASE IT DOESN'T MATTER IF THE GIRL WAS BLUE AND ALJ WAS GREEN THE FACT IS THAT A YOUNG GIRL, A HUMAN, SOMEONES LIL GIRL, SOMEONES BFF, GODS CHILD WAS TAKING SOO VIOLENTLY AND SO YOUNG. I' KNOW JUDGEMENT DAY IS APPROACHING HIM 1 DAY AND OF COURSE HE WILL GET WHAT HE DESERVES. NOT A FAN OF FAIRFIELD POLICE BUT THEY DID A JOB WELL DONE THANK ALL OF YOU.
Mary Bird March 03, 2013 at 12:00 AM
Facts are facts. I've seen it before in other places too--- not just Fairfield. Anyone who thinks race is not a factor in this case, or in the general decay of the city is either blind or a fool. Your immature yelling and name-calling only shows your ignorance. There's nothing wrong with being a "racist". There is everything wrong with being a murderer.
alan March 03, 2013 at 11:49 AM
I just want to confirm that your point of view is: "There's nothing wrong with being a "racist"." Are you serious? Do you truly believe that? If so, I'm even more happy that you moved away. I don't know anything about this man, other than what's been reported, but this kind of crime is typically committed by a white male adult. The neighbors usually say something like he kept to himself and he was quiet. What data are you using when assume race is a factor in this case?
Mary Bird March 03, 2013 at 10:07 PM
Yes Alan I truly believe that. If you're a non-Jewish White and you don't believe race is a factor, that makes YOU the fool. Not me. The "fact" you present about this normally being committed by a "white male adult" is a bald-faced lie. Check the prison population, it's well-known that the Black 13% of the US population commits over half the violent crime in America. It's time to start telling the truth instead of just making excuses.
Riley Willerson March 04, 2013 at 05:47 AM
Mary Bird, AKA Mary "Dodo" Bird. The typical sex offender is white, middle aged, seen as a quiet person by neighbors and co-workers. Many times friends and family are shocked by the news that the person they knew has been arrested. White male leads in numbers of incarcerated sex offenders. Yes you are right about the percentage of young black men being incarcerated at an alarming rate. And that a black man between the age of 17-25 is 97% more likely to die by the hand of another Black male. Very sad, know I have no answer that will correct this problem, but at least now you know Mary Dodo Bird how absurd you really are when you sputter hate under what you believe to be true.
alan March 04, 2013 at 12:18 PM
Mary, The prison population has nothing to do with which race usually commits which crime. Riley clearly stated the point I was trying to help you understand. Sorry, but the usual suspect in this type of crime is not your favorite target, which appears to be black males. I'm not making excuses for anyone. If this guy did it, I hope he pays for it through life in prison. I'll sleep fine knowing you think of me as the fool.
Mary Bird March 04, 2013 at 07:01 PM
Alan and Riley: You seem to actually believe that I care what you think about me. I certainly don't. I don't care if you think I'm a "racist" (i am, by the way) or a "dodo bird". incidentally dodo birds went extinct because of their lack of racism toward humans. How ironic that you call me one. Your facts on white male sex offenders is incorrect. A quick look at the county sex offender registry will show you that. Enough of this. You white fools just keep on singing Kumbaya with the local 'boons. I'm sure they will spare you while they are chopping your "racist" white neighbors to pieces with machetes. My family and I will be a LONG way away. Cheers!

cornbreadfed57 March 25, 2013 at 12:33 PM
