Teen’s mysterious death in Bayview sparks probe

Police are investigating the suspicious death of a 16-year-old girl in The City’s Bayview district.
Officers saw the girl down on the sidewalk about 12:45 p.m. Sunday near the intersection of Quesada Avenue and Jennings Street.

The officers began CPR and called for an ambulance after seeing that the girl was in distress, but she was pronounced dead on arrival, according to police.

The girl has been identified as Jaynice Johnson.

Investigators eventually went to the victim’s home and, based on conditions there, determined some sort of abuse had taken place. A 46-year-old man at the home was detained as a possible suspect in the death, police said.

More information about the case, including the suspect’s name and relationship to the victim, was not being released Monday, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said.
