Six Of Six Murder Suspects Are Now In Custody

Just two weeks after six suspect names were released in the murder of Lubbock teen Bernard Wilson - the final suspect is behind bars. US marshals arrested 35-year-old Keyairra Brown in Spring Hill, Louisiana just after two o'clock Friday afternoon.

Spring Hill is in Webster Parish, Louisiana and that's just south of the Arkansas border.

You'll recall the murder victim is 17-year-old Bernard Wilson of Lubbock. Wilson's body was found in Yellow House Canyon in December of 2005, but it wasn't positively identified until this past February.

With this sixth arrest all suspects in the murder of Wilson are behind bars.

The other five are:

  • 29-year-old Thamar Snyder- who drove from Arizona and surrendered to Lubbock police.
  • 42-year-old Wanda Wilson and her son, 21 year old Leslie Evans who were arrested in Detroit.
  • And finally Carnell Littlejohn and Joe Ragan.

We met with Major Don Carter at the Lubbock County Sheriff's Office Friday about this case. Carter says it could take up to 30 days to get Brown back to Lubbock.

"She didn't turn herself in so there's a possibility she may not wave her extradition from one state to another. If that's the case, we'll have to seek a governor's warrant which would mandate her to come back... Usually that's a 30 day process," Carter said.

But if Brown waves extradition, she'll be back in Lubbock within the next ten days.

Once she arrives, this final piece of the puzzle will be presented to the district attorney's office who will present it to a grand jury for indictment. Then the case will likely proceed to court.
