Arrest records show Diante Reynolds was taken into custody on Sept. 9.

Reynolds is charged with murder, concealing death of another, financial identity fraud, forgery in the first degree, tampering with evidence, and possession of controlled substance in schedule I or II with intent to distribute.

Atlanta police believe Lenior was murdered and died within a unit at Peachtree Midtown Apartments.

Police told Channel 2 Action News they are still searching for 29-year-old Steven Oboite who they believe is also a suspect in the incident. Oboite has a warrant for felony murder and concealing death of another.

In August Channel 2 Action News spoke with the Jannette Jackson, mother of Lenior. She told Channel 2 Action News she believed that someone had abducted her daughter.

“Nobody deserves to just disappear,” said Jackson. “Every day is getting harder obviously because the reality of time not being on my side or my daughter’s side is hurting — is painful,” Jackson told Channel 2 Action News. “All I know is that they said she was ID-ed coming in but not coming out.”


The Atlanta Police Department said the investigation is still ongoing and anyone with any information is asked to contact the police department.

At this time police have been unable to locate the body of Lenoir.
