Neighbors React to Arrest in Missing Teen's Case

Posted: Updated:

CUSTER CO., Okla_ Jaray Wilson has been missing for more than a year, and neighbors are reacting to news of an arrest that's been made.

The suspect is 19-year old Tucker Ryan McGee. Investigators say he killed Jaray Wilson, who was last seen in October of 2012. They believe skeletal remains discovered near Weatherford may be Wilson's

"If it is Jaray, then at least we'll have some kind of closure," one of Wilson's neighbors said. "People in this town have had a sick feeling in their stomach for a long time. We just pray for that family."

The remains, including a human skull have been sent to the medical examiner's office for identification. Charges are likely next for McGee.

ORIGINAL STORY - Dec. 17, 2013

Authorities say 19-year-old Tucker Ryan McGee was arrested by the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics on a first-degree murder complaint.

The Oklahoma Bureau of Investigation and the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics are investigating, after a tip in a missing person's case led them to an area two miles north of Weatherford Tuesday. 

Officials said after the tip, they found skeletal remains in a remote area a few miles north of the Weatherford airport, and they could be connected to a 14-month probe into the disappearance of the 16-year-old Wilson. The teen went missing in October 2012.
