Hopefully this is the murderer so Haruka can get some justice.
NBC News reports a 17-year-old homeless "runaway" faces a murder charge in connection with the killing of a University of Texas freshman this week, Austin police said Friday. 

The suspect — identified as Meechaiel Criner — was arrested Thursday and booked in the Travis County Jail, Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo said at a news conference. 

Student Haruka Weiser, an 18-year-old dance and theater major, was last seen alive on the Austin campus Sunday night before she was reported missing the following morning. Her body was discovered near a creek on Tuesday, and investigators declared her death a homicide — setting off a manhunt on the campus of 50,000 students.
