No arrests in Will’s death
Published: Thursday, October 3rd, 2013
Law enforcement officials recently executed more search warrants and continue to aggressively investigate the death of Meshell Will, but Custer County Sheriff Rick Wheeler said no arrests have been made in the case, and that Will’s death has still not been officially ruled a homicide.
“We are still putting the pieces of the puzzle together. We don’t have enough to charge anybody right now,” Wheeler said. “It’s a tough case.”
The case will not be treated as homicide until a cause of death is determined, pending the results of an autopsy. Those results have not been received yet.
Will’s decomposing body was found just off Iron Mountain Road by a tourist who was taking pictures in the area on Aug. 31. The body was found near mile post 54, in a wooded area between the higher and lower part of the road near one of the road’s famous “pigtail” bridges.
Will, 38, was last heard from Aug. 24, when she texted her sister to tell her she was going to Keystone. She was reported missing three days later.
