On the afternoon of January 13, 2009, law enforcement officers responded to the Candlestick Apartments in Midvale City, Utah. The maintenance workers had observed newspapers piling up outside of Apartment 208. Officers entered and found Lester Janise, a 62-year-old Native American male, decesaed inside of his apartment. And valuable items were missing. An autopsy determined the cause of death as ligature strangulation. The time of death was estimated to be somewhere around the end of December 2008. Lester had visited friends in South Dakota earlier that December prior to returning to Midvale. His 2002 white Ford Windstar was missing from his residence at the time Lester was located. The vehicle was later recovered in another state. Lester was not only a spiritual leader among the Native Americans, but also a Vietnam Vet who was awarded a Purple Heart. He lived alone, but had had company from out-of-state staying with him shortly before his death. A Unified Police cold case detective recently received a reliable break in this case and is actively investigating new leads. We encourage anyone with ANY information to call 385-468-9816. We believe someone out there has additional information regarding this case and knows what happened to Lester Janise.
