If you're going to hide a body, is a military post really the best option? I'm pretty sure for most people in the hiding bodies business, it'd be one of the last places they'd pick. But I'm no expert. I just watch Dexter every Sunday.
Apparently the spot was just right for Christopher Anthony Wilaby. The 26-year-old from Pensacola, Florida, is accused of strangling his girlfriend, Echo May Wiles, at a Junction City trailer court in August 2005, loading her body into her car, driving it to Fort Riley and running the car into Moon Lake. The car sunk and wasn't found until April 2010.
A construction worker spotted the car's antenna sticking out of the lake. Authorities had the car pulled from the lake and discovered Wiles' decomposed body in the back seat.
That's a really good way to get the feds involved. He's charged with stealing Wiles' 1997 Chevy Monte Carlo, not reporting the car stolen (which would have defeated the whole point of stealing the car in the first place), taking control of WIles' dead body and entering Fort Riley for an unlawful purpose.
Wilaby was arrested in Pensacola.
