James Ayers Said He Strangled Juliana Mensch, Was Driving Around in Her Car, Police Say

Lauderhill 32-year-old James Ayers visited a friend at work last Wednesday, according to police, and “went into great detail as to how he strangled ‘Julie’ and left her body in a room that he was renting somewhere in Broward County where he and Julie were staying.” Ayers said the stench was so bad he had to move out of the room, which turned out to be in the 1100 block of NW Seventh Terrace in Fort Lauderdale.
Then things got complicated.
As Ayers drove off, the friend wrote down the New Jersey license plate number on the blue Scion Ayers was driving. He then called police, who discovered the car belonged to 19-year-old Juliana Mensch, from New Jersey. They also found that Mensch had stopped regular Facebook posts on March 23, the same day her parents say they lost contact with her. Police didn’t have to look hard to get to Ayers, according to the arrest report — at 9 that night, Plantation Police were called because he was at the West Broward Care Center threatening to kill himself. Ayers had apparently gone there to visit a former drug counselor, and, “having heard rumor that Ayers had possibly killed someone,” the counselor asked Ayers about it. So… Ayers told him the whole story. At some point after that, the police arrived, as they usually do when somebody goes around town talking about strangulations. Ayers waived his Miranda rights and was questioned by the Broward Sheriff’s Office, though available court documents don’t say what was discussed. Police did find the number of Diane Rosa, his Fort Lauderdale landlord, in Ayers’ phone, but had difficulty reaching her because she’d had a heart attack the day before. When they finally contacted her, she said she’d noticed that something “smelled dead” in Ayers’ room and gave police permission to search the room. When Ayers was told about this, he decided he finally needed a lawyer. BSO detectives “noted the smell of what they recognized as decomposing flesh” as soon as they arrived at the house, according to the arrest report. They followed the smell to Ayers’ room and looked inside to find a corpse under a pile of clothes. Early the next morning, police got a search warrant and found Mensch’s purse and ID in the bedroom.The arrest report lists charges for first-degree murder and a cocaine-related probation violation, but court records reflect only the murder charge.
Ive been living a “not-so-good” lifestyle for a long time. I used to brag about things ive done that I now regret. I’ve treated myself worse than I’d EVER let anyone else treat me.I have had my freedom taken from me and I’m not OK with it. Its amazing how much you miss those creature comforts when they are suddenly taken from you. As of recently, I’ve decided to make a change. I try to practice honesty now, as hard as it may be considering how I WAS living. I no longer hurt people (on purpose) for my own benefit. The “Outlaw” lifestyle is overrated. I no longer look up to people that society looks down on. I have renewed my FAITH in my GOD, and strive to live a better life. I want to thank those few who have NEVER turned their backs on me (you know who you are), and my friends that continue to guide me in my new journey……I love all of you, new and old!
That’s a lot of qualifiers about no longer hurting people.
