Attorney General’s Office Assists State and Local Law Enforcement in Cold Case Homicide
Remains found in Custer County
OKLAHOMA CITY – Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt on Tuesday announced the discovery of partial remains in a field in Custer County. The remains are believed to be those of JaRay Wilson, who went missing from Weatherford in October 2012.
The AG’s Office was able to secure the location of the remains and work to recover evidence at the site in cooperation with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, the Custer County District Attorney’s Office and the Custer County Sheriff’s Office.
The discovery is the culmination of a 14-month investigation led by the OBNDD.
“It is the second cold case homicide that the Multicounty Grand Jury Unit has helped resolve within the past year to help bring closure to victims’ families,” Attorney General Pruitt said.
At approximately 9 a.m. Tuesday, law enforcement authorities went to an area several miles north of Weatherford where they located partial skeletal remains.
The remains will be taken to the state Medical Examiner’s Office, where attempts will be made to identify them.
