Six people are now charged with the murder of a Lubbock teen.

In December 2005, a passerby discovered the remains of 17-year-old Bernard Wilson in Yellow House Canyon.

In February, DNA tests confirmed Wilson's identity. Now, investigators believe he was beaten and stabbed in the area of 45th and Boston, before his body was dumped in the canyon.  

Tonight, authorities are trying to serve warrants on the following people:

  • Keyairra Brown, age 35
  • Leslie Evans, age 21
  • Carnell Littlejohn, age 22
  • Joe Ragan, age 21
  • Thamar Snyder, age 29
  • Wanda Wilson, age 42

"We applaud them for their work that's one of the things where an investigator finally gets to see the productivity of hs work and actually see it come to an end," said Major Don Carter of the Lubbock Sheriff's Office. "As far as the family, we hope that this is going to bring some sort of resolution to them in the death of their relative and we certainly want to keep them in mind."

Carter says investigators believe at least one of the suspects may still be in the Lubbock area, others may be in neighboring states.
