Authorities said they found Jayden's blood smeared in two locations on her mother's Chevy Traverse. They also said they found tire tracks matching the Traverse at the spot where Jayden's body was dumped.
Forensic examination of Jayden's computer indicated it was used at times when Lelevier was the only adult in the house and someone searched for information on the topics like "suicide, drugs and exsanguination."
Again, when Lelevier was the only adult in the home the computer was used to create a document titled "Everyone is against me all the time." The TPD said the file could be interpreted as a suicide note and was signed with the name "Jayden."
According to the search warrant, the file was deleted from the computer during the time Lelevier said he woke up and found Jayden missing. Police were able recover the document.
Jayden's body was discovered between Cienega High and Empire High on Thursday, May 11, about 13 hours after she was reported missing from her home.
She was a seventh grader at Old Vail Middle School, which is just two miles from where her body was found near the side of the road.
