In the backseat of a burned-out car, Kentucky police officers are chased after a man’s remains are found
33-year-old Krystle Williams is wanted by the Kentucky police for a second-degree arson after charred human remains were found in a car in a car in Robinson Creek on July 3.
Kentucky police are looking for a woman in connection with the discovery of human remains in the backseat of a burned-out car earlier this month.
A manhunt is on the way to find Krystle Williams, 33, for a second-degree arson after the charred remains, believed to have been of a missing man since June, were found in the car at Robinson Creek on July 3.
The remains found are believed to be those of Wesley Hook, 30, who disappeared from Pike County on June 10.
Pikeville police confirmed that the person found had died of murder.
They were burned beyond recognition.
Two other suspects have already been arrested and are being charged with arson in connection with the burned-out car.
No charges have yet been filed regarding the death of the person pending identification.
“A warrant has been issued for Krystle Williams over the arson of the car’s burning,” Tony Conn, Pikeville Police Public Information Officer, told reporters Monday. WYMT.
The woman’s last sighting was in Lafeyette County.
The remains found are believed to be those of Wesley Hook, 30, who disappeared from Pike County on June 10. The car in which the remains were found belonged to Hook’s father
Two other suspects have already been taken into custody. Eric DeLeon (pictured right) was arrested on Friday and told police he burned the car. Enos Little (pictured left) was arrested on July 3, the same day the car was found, on charges of drug trafficking. They both knew Hook
The second suspect, Eric DeLeon, was taken into custody last Friday. He is said to have admitted in a police interview “that he had burned the car.”
“During that interview, Mr. DeLeon made statements,” said Conn. “One of the statements he made was that he burned the car.”
He is now being held in the Pike County Detention Center on charges of second-degree arson.
The third suspect, Enos Little, 46, was arrested on July 3, the same day the car was discovered, on charges of drug trafficking.
He has since been charged with countless charges.
Police say neither of the men said they committed the murder, but they think they were involved because of the high level of detail they know about the car that was discovered.
“They know very well what happened,” said Agent Conn. “DeLeon also stated that he burned the car.”
The remains found in the car are currently under investigation by the Kentucky State Police forensics lab, but it remains to be confirmed that they are from Hook.
Dental data is used to make a positive identification.
The car in which the remains were found belonged to Hook’s father, and police confirmed that the three suspects knew the missing man.
Conn added that DeLeon’s name had been associated with Hook since his disappearance.
As such, the murder is not treated as arbitrary.
“They knew each other,” said Conn. “It was no coincidence.”

“We’re going to speak for Wesley. We’re going to take care of Wesley because he can’t take care of himself. ‘
A motive or the full facts about death are not yet known.
“We should have the positive identification for the next few days,” Conn added Appalachian News Express.
“But from statements by [one suspect, Eric DeLeon]We have good reasons to believe it is the remains of Mr. Wesley Hook. ‘
The Pike County Commonwealth prosecution does not believe that the victim died in the car, but that they died in the Alpike Motel in Ivel, were transferred in the car, driven to Robinson County, and then set on fire.
The evidence indicates that the murder took place in [a] motel in Floyd County, ”said Donald Smith, an assistant lawyer in the office.

The remains were then taken from the motel, shown in the photo, and the car was set alight elsewhere
He added that he thought the three suspects would be charged with murder once more evidence was gathered.
Smith said the investigation is ongoing and others may have been involved.
“It is currently planned to bring all charges to the Pike County grand jury as an ongoing process after completion of the gathering of more evidence and the next grand jury meeting,” he said.
“Murder charges would be brought before the grand jury, along with other charges, such as tampering with evidence, abuse of a corpse, things like that.”
Police urged anyone with information about Williams’ location to contact their local law enforcement agency.
