Nearly two weeks ago, the Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that human remains were found around Wolf Creek. DNA testing results confirm that the body has been identified as Jake Wilson.
The 16-year-old was last seen in April, after going for a walk to Wolf Creek.
Authorities want to remind the public that this investigation is not over. While we know where Jake Wilson is, there are still many questions that remain unanswered.
Here’s what we know right now: Jake’s body was found in the water in Wolf Creek, about a mile from where investigators started their search. They’ve been battling mother nature since day one. Investigators say they will continue to look into other evidence that they found to see if there are any signs of foul play.
Right now, there is no time stamp as to when this investigation will be over. Sheriff Tony Thompson says they won’t stop until every question is answered.
