The Phoenix Police Department is continuing to investigate the death of 19-year-old Kiera Lanae Bergman, whose body was found September 3 at State Route 85 and Hazen Road near Buckeye.

The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office found Bergman, but the Phoenix Police Department is leading the assumed homicide investigation, said Phoenix Sgt. Vincent Lewis.

Bergman was last seen August 4 at her home near 51st Avenue and Thunderbird Road in Phoenix. She recently moved from California to Arizona.

Police believe her ex-boyfriend, Jon-Christopher Clark, was the last person to see Bergman alive. Clark is in jail, charged with 22 counts of aggravated identity theft and two counts of forgery.

Lewis would only confirm that no one has been charged with her murder as of September 6.

Anyone with information is asked to call Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS. Callers may remain anonymous and could earn a reward of up to $1,000.

Bergman’s body was found 4 miles south of where 10-year-old Jesse Wilson’s body was found in March. A Buckeye city worker located the boy’s body on State Route 85 and Broadway Road.
