Prosecutors are accusing Ayoola Ajayi of killing U. student MacKenzie Lueck. Ajayi had written a book that was available for purchase through online retailer

Amazon has reportedly taken Ajayi’s book off the digital bookshelf.

The book is entitled, “Forge Identity.”

According to a summary on GoodReads, the book focuses on a teenager who witnesses a gruesome murder, and then another murder.

These two events, in addition to a forlorn relationship, causes the teenager to turn to a life a crime.

One review of the book described it as “impossible to read” due to the “sheer number of inconsistencies, spelling, and grammar mistakes.”

Another review, written prior to Ajayi’s arrest, says the narrative skipped around incoherently.

The book was published in August of 2018.

Ayoola Ajayi stands charged with the aggravated murder of MacKenzie Lueck. If convicted, Ajayi could face the death penalty.

A Lyft driver was reportedly the last person to see Lueck alive when the driver dropped her off at Hatch in North Salt Lake at 3 a.m. on June 17.

The Lyft driver told police Lueck appeared to get into a car without any distress.

Police say they found remains of a female body in the backyard of Ajayi’s property.

There was a rape investigation involving Ajayi in Cache County in 2014.
