Daniel Tate

Police arrested 19-year-old Daniel Tate and 17-year-old Jamari Cook for the death of Olivia Mackay. They were arrested on August 3rd by Mount Pleasant and Kenosha police. They have not yet been formally charged.

Mackay’s body was found along Louis Sorenson Road in the Village of Mount Pleasant on July 24th. She was the subject of a missing person's report after she failed to show up to work.

"I knew something was radically wrong because we couldn't even get close, you know? They had the whole road blocked off," a neighbor living near Louis Sorenson Road said.

"Just always so caring, just making sure that everybody was OK," Cara Farmer, a friend of Mackay's said during a gathering in her honor along Kenosha's lakefront.
