  • Malzahn was arrested on suspicion of vehicle theft; his sister claimed he carjacked her and her children in Tempe. During his time in jail, Malzahn made numerous phone calls, many of them to Gorospe. The recordings of those calls would not be released until January, three months after her disappearance.

  • Malzahn appeared in court on charges related to an attack on one ASU student and the carjacking of another. At this point, he has not been charged in connection with Gorospe's murder.

  • The Coconino County Sheriff's released recordings of phone calls Malzahn made from jail between his arrest in August and October when Gorospe posted bail for him. Many of the calls were to Gorospe and they paint a picture of a turbulent relationship. At this point, he still has not been charged in the Gorospe case. Any charging decision will be made by the Coconino County Attorney's Office because investigators believe that is where Gorospe was murdered although her remains were found elsewhere.
