WEATHERFORD, Okla. – New details were released today in the murder investigation of an Oklahoma teen.
Jaray Wilson went missing back in October of 2012. Her body was found 14 months later in a wooded area near Weatherford.
On Wednesday the autopsy report was released, detailing the 16-year-old’s final moments.
According to the autopsy, her death was homicide. It also shows she died after being shot twice in the head.
It’s a cause investigators say they already suspected.
Mark Woodward, with the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics, said, “This has been a very complex case and a very difficult one.”
It’s a case which does continue, despite the arrest of Tucker Ryan McGee.
The autopsy is just the latest piece of the puzzle to be released.
Woodward said, “It basically confirms what we had heard from witnesses.”
According to the medical examiner, Wilson’s cause of death was gunshot wounds to the head.
There was evidence she was shot twice.
The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics has handled much of the investigation due to the initial disappearance being thought to be human trafficking. While there are now more answers, investigators say there are also still questions.
Woodward said, “To this point we have not found anything that rules out human trafficking but also nothing that points us to anything solid on human trafficking.”
While only one arrest has been made authorities say there still could be more arrests in the coming months.
As for Tucker McGee, he is set for a preliminary hearing coming up on June 30th.
