Salt Lake County District Attorney files charges for 1996 murder investigation

The victim was Lisa Redmond, a 36-year-old mother of two.

Salt Lake County District Attorney Sim Gill announced Thursday that Donald Eugene Young Jr. will be charged for the alleged 1996 murder of a pizza delivery woman in West Valley City.

Young Jr. is charged with first-degree felony murder, first-degree felony aggravated kidnapping, and first-degree felony aggravated robbery.

According to the District Attorney, advanced DNA testing on the blood taken from the seat belt buckle matched Mr. Young’s blood. The prints from the knife also matched Mr. Young’s as well.

On December 9, 1996, police responded to an auto-pedestrian accident at 3100 South and 5300 West, where the female wearing a Pizza Hut employee uniform was identified as Lisa Redmond, a 36-year-old mother of two children. Investigators found signs of a struggle in the truck as well as blood found underneath the truck. The knife would be found in the vehicle as well.
