WEATHERFORD, Okla., Dec. 18 (UPI) -- A young Oklahoma man was charged with murder Tuesday after a body believed to be that of a missing teenager was found about 200 feet from the nearest road.

Tucker Ryan McGee, 19, was being held in the Custer County Jail, the Oklahoman reported. Mark Woodward, a spokesman for the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs, said the investigation into the death of JaRay Wilson, 16, of Weatherford is not complete and more arrests could be made.

Wilson disappeared in October 2012. A source told the newspaper that information developed during a multi-county grand jury investigation led to the search of a remote area outside Weatherford and the discovery of a body.

The source said investigators believe Wilson was shot in the head and her body dumped. The killing was described as possibly drug-related.

"One of our agents was just walking around the area when he saw a skull on the ground," Woodward said.
