LEFLORE COUNTY (KFSM) -- Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is looking into a possible development in a LeFlore County cold case

A search warrant filed in LeFlore County court by OSBI investigators on Aug. 16 sought the DNA of Edith Kathryn Wilson and her son Donald Lee Bocephus "Bo" Wilson.

According to documents attached to the warrant, Bo Wilson's dad, Jerry Don Wilson, told an OSBI investigator in May 2017 that his son killed his wife Jody Rilee Wilson. Jerry Wilson said his wife, Edith Wilson, helped get rid of her body.

Jerry Wilson Mugshot from a previous arrest

Jody Wilson was found murdered on a Heavener mountain top in May 2009 when a paraglider spotted her body.

At the time, her husband and in-laws told authorities they had traveled to New Mexico for a funeral.

On May 2, 2017, Jerry Wilson told OSBI agents that his son came to his home in May 2009 and said he had to get rid of the body, the affidavit states. That's when Jerry Wilson said he heard his wife say she was going to help, and then they left. A little while later, he said they returned and they headed to New Mexico for a funeral. Jerry Wilson said he asked if Jody Wilson was coming with them, but they said she was staying there.

When they returned from the funeral, Wilson said he learned that Jody Wilson's body had been found and he started to suspect that was the body his son and wife talked about moving, according to the affidavit. He said he asked his son about a month later, and Bo Wilson told him that he covered Jody' Wilson's face with a piece of plastic and smothered her to death.

Officers will compare the newly obtained DNA from Edith and Bo Wilson with DNA found in Jody Wilson's vehicle, which was recovered from near a restaurant parking lot.

Currently no arrests have been made.
