Arrest Made in Murrieta Apartment Fire Death

Marquise Denzell McGlown, 22, of Hemet is the primary suspect in the death of Shanae Wesley, 23, whose body was discovered Oct. 31 in a Murrieta apartment fire.

An arrest has been made in connection with a woman's body found Wednesday in a Murrieta apartment fire.

Marquise Denzell McGlown, 22, of Hemet was taken into custody Friday, according to Murrieta police Lt. Tony Conrad.

McGlown was booked at Southwest Detention Center on a state parole violation, Conrad said in a news release Saturday.

McGlown is considered the primary suspect in the death of 23-year-old Shanae Christiana Wesley, who was identified by coroner's officials Friday, Conrad said.

"Murrieta police investigators continue to investigate this case as a homicide," Conrad said.

Records show McGlown—who previously served a two-year prison term for a 2008 residential burglary—was arrested about 1:04 p.m. Friday on Latham Street in Hemet.

"Results from the Coroner’s Office autopsy and presentation of this case to the Riverside County District Attorney [are] still pending," Conrad said. "The Murrieta Police Department expects additional charges against McGlown to be filed in the near future."

Conrad also confirmed that it was Wesley’s 3-year-old son who was rescued from the apartment during the fire.

"He was treated after the incident and has been released from a local hospital in good condition. His identity will not be released," Conrad said.

Police encouraged anyone with information regarding this investigation to come forward. Detective Sgt. Phil Gomez can be reached at 951-461-6356 for anything related to this investigation, Conrad said.

The suspect was being held on no bail, sheriff's jail records indicated.

I am extremely sorry for her family to have to read the ignorant comments and this so called fundraiser that is does not seem to be legitimate as proven by her own comments of not knowing anything of what has or is being done, but selfishly collecting money in her own name, all sales final. I do not see any mention of her being the spokesperson, all I see is an exploitation of Shanae, a good, caring heart person.

How senseless......Shanae was a very nice girl, so saddened by this news and by the thought of that little boy having to go through the rest of his life without his mommy.

This was an awful tragedy. It seems like the Waterstone Apartments have become a recurring source of violence and trouble. Does anyone have an explanation for this? Is there a half-way program for parolees over there?

It's great to see Shanae was such a positive influence in so many lives. I was happy to read all the memories people have! As for all the negative comments from people who did not know her, don't jump to conclusions because as you can see from her friends and family, she was a GREAT woman! We just need to all be mindful what is posted considering the fact there is an ongoing investigation in an attempt to get justice for Shanae. This is not the time to go back and forth about what your relationship was with her and M or what you did for them, but a time to remember a woman who was taken from us too soon and a young child who will grow up without a mother.
mary haines November 06, 2012 at 05:24 PM
A mother gone to soon with Gods grace and mercy he has welcomed her with love into heaven please pray for healing of her family and most of all her beloved son the hand of God will be with him forever
RitaT November 06, 2012 at 05:37 PM
Wow everyone is really on one I didn't personally know Shanae but my family and friends did I've heard things about her positive and negative and all I can think of is what a horrible way to die and that poor baby my thoughts and prayers are with her loved ones

Although I am sure Becca and family mean well, this donation site should be avoided. Any donations should be through a trust or through the funeral home so your payment can be tracked and accounted for. When giving donations that are made to someone other than the child (if wanting to donate to his future) or in a trust under the deceased's name (if wanting to help with funeral arrangements), there is absolutely no guarantee that either will receive one penny of that donation.

It's one of the cheapest places to rent in the city. This always brings crime and trouble to an area.
Alicia November 07, 2012 at 12:39 AM
It's as if you are on here trying to prove a point. If the family is asking you to stop the fundraiser or whatever the situation is, you and your friend should just respect their wishes. Trying to down them during a time like this is just crazy! Not only is that disrespectful to the family, you also make yourself look dumb in the process!
AmericanMom November 07, 2012 at 01:21 AM
My heart goes out to a young mom lost, and the baby son who lost her. People - she was 23 and I for one made some questionable choices at that age. She was young and learning her way, with what should have been years ahead of her. At this time to throw anything beyond prayers for her son and family is heartless. I am sure all who loved her are overwhelmed with grief, already. She was someone's baby, someone's mommy, someone's sister, best friend. Now she is an angel. This is so terrible that she was lost so young. To her parents and all those that loved her, my thoughts and prayers will be with you all. I am sorry if what people write on here possibly can cause you more pain.

I can think of a way to ease the pain of this brutal murder----the focus should now be upon the psychotic beast that would torch his lover and leave her child to burn ALIVE in his quest to hide evidence...... McGlown the demon is still with us...Soulless ghoul
Alicia November 07, 2012 at 01:44 PM
There is no proof that he was her "lover." Stop speculating about what the situation was between her and this crazy man!

A trust fund has been set up by the Murrieta Police Officers Association for the 3 year old boy. check the press release. http://www.murrieta.org/civica/press/display.asp?layout=1&Entry=274

@ Family Can someone give me a heads up on when shanae funeral will be held @. Please and thank you this is her best friend. I wouldn't think the Father would anything like that and just leave the poor child in the apartment. @ Becca Same goes for you I don't know but Shanae was a very private person I have to say that much. But i would really like if someone anyone can reach out to me and tell me what are the plans for her Funeral please. I am on facebook Mahogany M. Green or email me mahogany.bender@yahoo.com. I would appericate it thank you
Mahogany Green November 08, 2012 at 08:38 PM
After reading all these comments and the things everyone has to say. The point of it all is that we lost a dear friend and family member. WE don't realize how young everyone is dying now a days and this really breaks my heart. Shanae was such a wonderful person, I have known her since my freahman year of high school and from the first day I met her. This girl was with me until thee end and I didn't let anyone talk about her or disrespect her in any way or else they would get beat up lol. When I got pergnant @ 16 she came and stay at my other best friends house for awhile due to some family problems. An this girl stay with me at the hospital for two days lol helped me with my son. Gosh I really loved that girl brings me to tears now just thinking about it. She was a true best friend couldn't know one tell me nothing about Shanae she was ace, my right hand girl. When I left high school, thats when she moved out to Temcula with fam and then to Murrieta. When I found out she was pregnant I was beyond happy it. She would send me all kinds of pictures of lil M. She loved her baby and she would never put that lil one in any danger what so ever. She would work all these jobs and still trying to better herself by going to school. She had goals and most young women don't even have that now a days. But I have to say she was a awesome mother. I hope that M is in the best of care. Because that would be what Shanae would want, and if any knows anything about the funeral and when it is
Mahogany Green November 08, 2012 at 08:41 PM

This is not a man, this is a demonic beast. He intended for everyone in the complex to burn to death so he might get evidence washed away by the fire department. This psychotic killer knew his victim's child would burn but probably didn't have enough time to murder him as well beforehand... 100 years ago McGlown would have been lynched and slowly burnt to death over a fire, and there would be a festive atmosphere underneath his charred corpse. This was done to establish a deterrent for any future sociopaths. Of course back then the McGlown family would have to leave the area for their safety, That was justice a century ago here....

Censored message...ur one of the dumbest ppl i have ever came across on a post. You sound as if ur racist tlkn about lynching and hangin...smh at you. If u dnt know the facts then pls SHUT UP! I know this man personally and know that he was set up and are being railroaded by a so called "friend." Its sad because both sides are grieving here and have suffered tremendous lose. I pray for this beautiful young lady who lost her life to a senseless act of selfishness. And I also pray for the innocent young man Marquise that is being wrongfully accused. I pray that the real perpetrator is caught and prosecuted bringing closure to both sides caught up in this tragedy.
censored messenger November 14, 2012 at 05:21 PM
If you "know" he was set up then you better bring what evidence you have ASAP to Murrieta detectives because your young friend is up against it. He isn't going to fare well in the prison yard... But you don't have any evidence, do you? if you really cared about your friend, you'd find him the best attorney you could afford. i bet you won't. I bet you'll just keep posting here, comfortably..
Jenna November 18, 2012 at 09:22 PM
whoever would intentionally leave a child to die in a fire is a monster but guess im wondering what evidence against this guy....just because he was her boyfriend? Doesn't seem like enough to make him the "prime suspect"
Brenda November 20, 2012 at 02:16 AM
The best place to donate is to the Murrieta Fire Department who has set up a legal trustfund for this young boy IN HIS NAME only. Never make donations to people you do NOT know either here, on facebook, myspace, or any other online source. Murrieta Fire Department has their information on their website of the banking establishment and account numbers. If you cannot find that information let me know.

This is for the family, I am a mom of one of the kids that are in "M's" childcare class Ms Rosemary.
