GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Grand Junction Police have arrested a teenage girl in the murder of 20-year-old Ramon Sandoval.

Officers arrested 19-year-old Amy Adamson-Gonzalez Sunday afternoon on charges of second degree murder.

In a press release, officials said Gonzalez and Sandoval knew each other -- and police were not looking for other suspects. They say their investigation is ongoing and they are not releasing any other details about the case.

In a post made to her MySpace page Sunday, Gonzalez wrote, "I hope that my lady will be okay and I don't know Ramon that well, but R.I.P. bro."

A source close to the investigation tells 11 News that Gonzalez is a lesbian, and the stabbing may have been over another woman. They also say she was wearing a court-ordered tracking device on her ankle when she was taken into custody. Her arrest affidavit is not being released.

Police say Gonzalez stabbed Sandoval in the stomach. His body was discovered by residents of the Monument Ridge Townhomes at 2860 B 1/2 Road Saturday morning. Members of Sandoval's family say they were having a small party across town Friday night and don't know why Ramon would have ended up on Orchard Mesa.

If anyone has information about this crime they can call the Grand Junction Police Department at 242-6707, call Crime Stoppers at 241-STOP, send the information via the web at www.241stop.com, or text a tip to CRIMES (274637) with the word TIP729 in the message. The identity of the person providing the information will remain anonymous.

    Well evidently acts from 2006 were considered relevant in this case. Can't wait, looking forward to proving, the terrorist acts that this boy and his friends caused throughout this community. Watch for the book Injustice and Terrorism in Grand Junction Colorado.

      @Kanyauhn- Why are you judging a murdered person? Thats not up to you, and who are you to write a book that you know nothing about. I think you need to get a life and job and leave this poor boy to rest in peace and let his family grieve the right way.

    agreed if amy chose to live her life as a man or a boy in my eyes,then she knew what she had comming if she stepped up to a man...i hope she does rot in prison for what she has done,she took the life of an innocent boy who didnt have any reason to die over some dumb braud! how would amy feel if some one killed her brother?or her family member i know amy and she would have done somthing stupid like kill someone like she has already done,ever since i can remember amy has been hott headed,and i always knew shed end up in prision,my heart goes out to ramons family and friends,im sorry amy ended up wheres shes at because of the death of ramon,lets just all pray thats where she stays.

    A few comments to some of the narrow minded, ignorant gum flappers. "TJ",Your comment about let us all kill each other, and "Concerned", stating for all parents to put your crack pipes down. Neither one of you know any of us personally or our families. How dare you think you are better or that your family is above a tragedy like this. NOBODY has the right to take the life of another. NOBODY has the right to judge people and their circumstances. Ramon was not perfect and neither is mankind. How dare you "Concerned" say that parents do not care until their children are dead. My Aunt and Uncle cared for Ramon more than you deserve to know. Rot in hell Amy!! Rest in Peace Ramon and I'll see you again someday ;-)

    I'm so sick of all this b.s.!! Who cares if Amy is a lesbian. I'm sick of hearing what a "good" guy Ramon was. He was a punk!! But no he did not deserve to die, and as for the "girl" they might have been fighting over, she is a punk too!! I know in my heart that Amy was set up by her lady and this thug because she is a lesbian, why else would her "lady" post pictures of her and Ramone on her myspace page AFTER this horrible event. And I agree with eddie don't judge ANY one until you have walked a mile in their shoes. I couldn't imagine trying to gay in GJ, trust me I grew up there, and I know for a fact that Amy and all the other gay people in that town have to fight all the redneck narrow minded people on a day to day basis just to be treated like the human beings and children of God that they are. So keep your chin up Amy for the truth will come out and God will keep you and your's and Ramones family in his hands. Love you baby girl.

    ok first of all im a lesbian and i have never done ne thing that outrageous in my life. and for you people that say she had her reasons for doing what she did. there are no excuses she took a life of an innocent person who hadnt did ne thing to her. he didnt deserve to die and amount of apologies will ever satisfy the friends and family members of ramons family. she needs to pay for what she did. and jus becuz someones life is hard or bad or mother didnt pay attention enough or daddy hit me... those reasons or excuses do not justify what she did. it never will. you people are rediculous. grow up and let him rest. i anticipate what will happen to amy the lesbian that has commited this crime. i love you ramon, rest in peace my lil brother.

    First of all...what does meth have to do with any of this? Why don't you put down YOUR crack pipe you loon. Second, Eddie, you seem to know alot about this don't you? You know why Amy did this? Please...enlighten me...because I hate alot of people and have alot of enemies but I would NEVER even wish what happened to Ramon on anyone. You can justify why she stabbed him after he was beaten, left him out in the cold alone and let him die? I don't care if she had a hard life. So did Ramon. So did I...I don't stab people. And niether did he. I'm trying to consider both sides but it's a little hard when there is only one story presented. RIP RAMON. WE LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU.

    So, a question...how did this all turn into a story about meth? Its about one person killing another. And maybe they reported that she is a lesbian because she IS! And apparently this stabbing was over a GIRL! Stop trying to make it seem like News 11 is pointing the finger just because she is a lesbian, get over yourself!
