Kiera Bergman

The boyfriend of a Phoenix teenager who went missing in April was arrested on unrelated charges after he refused to take a polygraph exam to prove his innocence in her disappearance.

Kiera Bergman, 19, was last seen in her Phoenix apartment on April 4.

Police suspected her 23-year-old boyfriend, Jon-Christopher Clark, might have something to do with her disappearance, but he steadfastly refused to take a polygraph examination.

According to the NY Daily News, Clark said he didn’t want investigators to “pretty much gather conclusions off of something that is not guaranteed."

Clark was arrested Friday and charged with 22 counts of aggravated identity theft and two counts of forgery, police confirmed to The News.

He was taken into custody after police executed a search warrant on his car. Investigators confirmed the arrest was not related to Kiera's disappearance.

Kiera's roommate said she received an out-of-character text from Kiera in the hours after she went missing.

Destiny Hall-Chand said the text message indicated Kiera was on her way to meet up with a man she met at a store several days prior.

Hall-Chand told KPHO-TV the text was "something that’s not like her. I mean, that’s not something she would do."

It was also uncharacteristic of the teen to leave home without her purse or her keys.

Police focused their investigation on Kiera's boyfriend who was the last person to see her.

Clark told police they argued and she left her apartment to "go clear her head."

He told the Huffington Post, “I didn’t really find it unusual until she wasn’t in contact with me."

Clark is set to be arraigned in court on Friday.

    He killed her. Coward.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    He may have done it. But in truth.. Lie Detectors are faulty AF... do you know how many killer who where later found guilty that actually PASSED the lie detector test. They have a video of an actual killer passing one on line. The gag is.. Its the truth if they believe it..killers can compartmentalize their demons and pass that test with flying colors.. smh

  • Marlika

    Such a beautiful young lady. He needs his head blown off.

  • Tiffany Miller

    Its sad. While teens hate it, this is why parents like to maintain visibility. When people assume that nobody cares about you, you become prey as a woman living alone.

  • Trace da Ace

    I think he killed her.....damn....see these mo fo's out here are crazy as hell!!!! This is so damn sad....smdh

  • JV

    The lie detector is just a trap to try and get the suspect to confess if they fail it. They're inadmissible in court, but the police hope the suspect doesn't know that.

  • Quitedeliteful

    What is wrong with these men?!? I swear it must be something in the water!!! Why are young men killing women???

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    on that note let me take my theraflu and go back to damn sleep ... too much for damn killing going on ... BBL on funny post ?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    true psychopaths can pass it easily actually .. and your right.. . they are able to compartmentalize emotions. ... SMH

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    She probably threatened to tell about all that fraud he was doing

  • Trace da Ace

    feel better sis!

  • hottlanta

    I cant breathe. This is a bit much. When l heard about the man that killed his pregnant wife n also his 2 daughters l was done. Then when l heard he put those bodies in a oil tank l was speechless.

  • hottlanta

    Black Man refused 2 take a lie detector test n live 2 c another day. We have overcame.

  • Coy little wink

    He hasn't even been charged yet...smh

  • Coy little wink

    Polygraphs are inadmissible evidence why would investigators even ask he take one? Its usually a defense strategy because they can be passed but it doesn't indicate guilt just shows you are cool under pressure...

  • Prettybrowneound35

    I swear...it seems staying single is the best way to stay alive for women...

  • WhoKnew

    Agreed.

  • WhoKnew

    He did it. Any time you refuse a polygraph you did it or know somebody about it.

  • justlooking

    Prayers for her family and electric chair for his ass. He did it.

    Sandra lets get a post on the white man killing his whole entire family.

  • justlooking

    Nahh, evil lurks among the singles as well.

  • Miss Thang

    He killed her. smh.

  • WhoKnew

    Polygraphs are inadmissible but I heard it helps with the direction of the investigation to rule out suspects. They can't tell a jury he failed a polygraph so they have to develop their case based on the presumption that he is guilty if he failed that polygraph.

  • justlooking

    Awwww feel better now. Take a shot of whiskey and out it in some mint tea, with some honey.

    Vitamin c pills and ecchnnicina 2 pills of each 3 times a day. I swear bye it.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I don't know if scamming has always been as prevalent as it is today, but I feel like it's on the rise and it's being perpetrated by more young adults.

  • Kimocha

    "Clark was arrested Friday and charged with 22 counts of aggravated identity theft"
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    So does this mean he has stolen peoples identity 22 times??
    If he stealing peoples identity that often... then he got something to hide for sure.... smdh

  • dru and neil

    Isn’t it terrifying? You never know who you can put even the tiniest modicum of trust in!

  • dru and neil

    That story is so sad! What the hell is wrong with that animal of a man to do that to not only his pregnant wife, but two innocent babies.

  • Yoni7

    Then took them to "work", in a sense.

  • Yoni7

    Now shit, I didn't know he put them in an oil tanker. I knew he had taken them to a work site and that he worked for an oil company. But he put them in an oil tank?????? DAMN!

  • Coy little wink

    if you are good at lying and lack emotions you can pass...failure doesn't mean anything except some physical criteria were met (heart rate blood pressure temperature changes etc.) If they are using a polygraph as a starting point that to me says case is weak...they are grasping

  • Renee26

    So sad.... I hope they find out what happened to this child... Prayers for her family

  • Renee26

    WOW

  • justlooking

    Why did you go there. Now I am going to hell cause I laughed. That is so odd why did he do that?

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Thanks bew ??

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Thanks gal ??

  • Yoni7

    Girl PP said that to me and I fell out. I watched his 'deadpan' interview and was like THIS fukka lyin'. And viola'!

  • Logan Roberts

    It's always the fucking boyfriend or husband in these situations. Very rare does it turns out to be random.

  • pure_rachet

    I'd never consent to a polygraph! Even if i'm innocent and don't know about it.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    True, yet most people think their guns are going to protect them from the stranger.

  • Alextra Ballard

    You ain neva lied....I've been sangle going on 5 mos...after reading theses stories,I ain in no rush!!

  • Alextra Ballard

    ...and stuffed them in an oil tank to mask the smell while he get his lies together

  • Alextra Ballard

    So he's arrested on unrelated charges...that's until they gather more evidence. Who wouldn't wanna take a polygraph? Someone who has something to hide.

  • Alextra Ballard

    I remember people saying one thing thats guaranteed are "death and "taxes"...Naaaa..this is entirely a different world...we are now guaranteed the "HERE AND NOW!! No one knows about tomorrow.

  • WhoKnew

    Guess you have a point. I have heard that if you learn how to breathe properly and some other stuff you can be guilty and still pass.

  • Coy little wink

    Its junk science if you are smart you would refuse...

  • bemetoo

    that man ain't kill that girl ..

  • dontgetblocked

    Most women are harmed or killed in domestic violence incidents.

  • dontgetblocked

    Auntie....she went missing on August 4th not April 4th. However, she didn't get any attention because of the missing white girl. It looks like both women were taken or killed by men they knew. I wonder if it was murder or human trafficking. The stolen identities seem suspicious.

  • starbright9449

    First I said he's guilty cause hesh refusing a polygraph but i think itsi allowed to be presented as evidence to a grand jury in some states, what if it reads wrong? I'll be charged and convicted based on a damn false reading. Guilty people have passed them before.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Might not be 22 different people, just 22 separate acts... like using somebody's person's stolen credit card, debit card, drivers license etc., multiple times. Each time you do it it's a crime, so I guess the cops are just stacking the charges to put some pressure on him.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Well, guns can protect you from a stranger breaking into your house. Those are 2 separate issues. One doesn't negate the other.

  • justlooking

    Sent it to...post something. Crine

  • Strappyheels

    When it’s the mfer that’s closest to you..

  • Strappyheels

    It has always been prevalent..
    Checks and identity theft been big..

  • Strappyheels

    I swear nothing surprises me anymore. True life is way worse than fiction..

  • Quitedeliteful

    Now this is a first....

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    That's the point.

    It won't be because I live alone and rarely go anywhere a lot of people are gathered.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I'm not paranoid and I could leave my apartment door open because no one even knows that I live there.
    I am of the mindset that people are robbed by people they know or people who know them.
    Most burglars aren't going to just randomly break into someone's house/apartment unless they know what's in there.

  • Strappyheels

    I’ve become a True recluse.. I am very empathic so I have to protect my energy.. I get too overwhelmed in crowds. I always knew I felt things, but as I’ve gotten older , it’s a bit more intense.

    My Friday nights are filled with my grandchildren. I’d rather cuddle with them.

  • It’s Real Talk! Period!!

    So true that I be watching TV One Fatal Attraction. I am addicted and very very single??

  • Patricia

    yes. statistics remain the same that over 90% of murders are committed by someone the victims know.

  • Patricia

    ...and smart!

  • Patricia

    i keep my glock ready for my husband, neighbors, fed ex man, all of em' get the side eye. anybody wanna try me can have this

  • Patricia

    no one

  • Patricia

    i once had an insane roommate my freshman year of college. she lied about everything. big, obvious, 3 year old child type lies, just made up mess for the heck of it. then, one day she came into our room falling out crying saying her surgeon mom's abortion clinic was attacked with assault rifles and grenades.
    my mama wired me the money for a private room that same day, said her lies were not funny anymore b/c now "her lies have turned homicidal. that girl is crazy as all hell". sure enough, there was nothing on the news about an abortion clinic being bombed and shot up.
    it occurred to me she was the type of person who could easily chop somebody up in their sleep and act like nothing happened the next day. she reinvented herself and became a new character every other day. i wish i could remember that girls name to look her up today. likely in a mental hospital or prison.

    Yeah I am sensitive to the energy of others which is another reason I prefer to be alone.

    I have to deal with lots of negative energy at work so that's enough.

  • WutizstillHERE!

    Oh wow! Now thats some creepy ass shyt! your mom was very smart in sending the money! Her name was probably Sybil..after that woman who had 11 personalities..

  • Strappyheels

    That’s why I work
    for myself now..

    It’s going pretty good..
    It’s a big cut in my pay, but eventually it will even out. I know I’m a lot happier.

  • Strappyheels

    I like you Roderick2011, your energy is exquisite.
    Hopefully we can keep in touch.
