According to HCSO, 34-year-old Ja'Quan Glymp was arrested for his involvement in the murder. He's accused of dressing like a construction worker and trying to commit a robbery when the attack happened. 

Deputies said in the suspect's arrest report that there were signs of a struggle at the construction site and the victim's missing belongings were found in Glymp's vehicle when he was later pulled over by investigators, indicating a robbery took place when the victim was killed. 

He's facing multiple charges, including first-degree murder while engaged in a robbery. He is being held on a bond set at half a million dollars. 

Detectives said there may be more people involved and are working to identify other potential suspects in the case.
