Arrests Made in Preston Lord Homicide Case


The Queen Creek police department and the Maricopa County Attorney's Office, have made crucial advancements in the Preston Lord homicide investigation. Over March 6 and 7, a total of six individuals were apprehended or served with arrest warrants in connection to this case, marking a pivotal turn in the pursuit of justice for the Preston Lord.

During a press conference on March 6, Maricopa County Attorney Rachel Mitchell detailed the charges against four suspects: William Owen Hines, Talan Renner, Dominic Turner, and Talyn Vigil. These charges range from first and second-degree murder to kidnapping, highlighting the grave nature of their alleged crimes. The subsequent day brought additional indictments against Jacob Meisner and Taylor Sherman, further intensifying the legal scrutiny surrounding this case.

The origins of this investigation trace back to a distressing 911 call on October 28, 2023, reporting an assault at 194th St. and Via Del Rancho in Queen Creek. Responders found juvenile Preston Lord in critical condition; tragically, he succumbed to his injuries two days later. Queen Creek Police Department (QCPD) Chief Randy Brice emphasized the department's unwavering commitment to achieving justice for Preston, acknowledging the extensive investigative work and community support that have been instrumental in reaching this juncture.

The Maricopa County Medical Examiner's Office concluded in February that Preston's death was a homicide, reinforcing the charges laid by the QCPD. This finding was a key element in advancing the legal process, ensuring that the charges were well-founded and that the pursuit of justice could proceed with solid evidence.

As the legal proceedings unfold, the San Tan Valley community remains united in its support for the Lord family and steadfast in its opposition to violence. The ongoing investigation and forthcoming trials are not merely about penalizing the wrongdoers but also about reaffirming the communal values of safety, justice, and respect for life.

*Note: All charges mentioned are merely accusations, and the accused individuals are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
