An "aggressive investigation" by Scottsdale police has led to the arrest of a suspect in the fatal shooting of an 18-year-old prostitute last month.
Brian Nathaniel Black, 25, abducted the victim the night before her bullet-ridden body was found in front of an unoccupied house near Hayden Road and Shea Boulevard, says an online police bulletin.
Police believe Black shot Tanya Marie Paige as she tried to flee from Black's vehicle.
