A tragic incident occurred on February 2nd, 2018, reports having said that there was a murder at Premier Nails and Spa located in the Monte Vista Village Center Shops. It happened on a Friday evening past the usual hours of the shop. In up-to-date reports, the Mesa Police Department identified that the victim’s body was 30-year old Lindsey Eastridge. Not only was Lindsey a wife, but she was also was a mother of four boys.

At around 7:30 pm, police received a call near Baseline and Ellsworth streets, and the police arrived shortly after to discover her body near the front of the nail shop, the investigation lasted approximately three hours, ending at around 10pm. Lindsey was getting her nails done and paying for her given services when the incident transpired. It has been reported that the cause of death was brutal stabbing. Police have spoken out and claimed that it was mostly likely that the suspect had some kind of relation to Lindsey for this rather than a random murder. Witnesses depict the suspect to have barged through the front door, resulting in shattered glass after he had stabbed her. Afterwards, the suspect immediately fled the scene before the police turned up. Detective Steve Barry claimed, “The few people in the business ran to the back of the store and when investigated they could not give a ton of information from the minimal view.” They said that the man was well-covered, unable to decipher his appearance.

When her family was interviewed, they had expressed feelings of remorse and shock with the sudden occurrence of her death. In the more recent reports, her family and friends have spoken out to search for answers and find out why it had been her and what were the motives behind the crime. Carla Webber, Lindsey’s sister said, “She was the most wonderful mother, sister, daughter, wife and best friend. She was the piece to our puzzle. Lindsey deserves justice more than anyone else.” Katie Hoyle, her sister-in-law stated, “She was a really good person and a good mom to all of her sons.” Family members of Eastridge are terrified that the culprit is still on the loose and can put other citizens in danger.

The Premier Nails and Spa is said to be closed until further notice when things will cool down. The investigation is still on-going and new details are soon to be released. Any other new information of this crime can be reported to the Mesa Police Department at 480-644-2211 or to Silent Witness at 480-Witness. A GoFundMe campaign was created on February 5th in support in the family of Lindsey Eastridge to help pay for her memorial, the goal being $25,000.
