In a shocking turn of events, authorities have made a gruesome discovery in a field near the Texas home of a man who was arrested last week in connection with the disappearance of a woman.
The missing woman’s body, who had threatened to reveal to the suspect’s wife that he was dating her, was found wrapped in plastic and dumped in the field.
The remains were discovered on Wednesday evening in Grand Prairie, Texas, and have yet to be identified. The medical examiner’s office will conduct further examinations to identify the body.
The man, Ocastor Ferguson, 32, was arrested on Saturday on a kidnapping charge in relation to the disappearance of Kayla Kelley, 33. Her car was found burned in a remote area of the Dallas suburb of Frisco on January 12, the day after she was reported missing.
According to an arrest affidavit, her aunt and co-workers said they had not heard from her in several days. However, the horrifying truth was that the missing woman had been brutally murdered by the suspect and her body was dumped in a field near his home.
Ferguson remains in jail, where records show he is also being held on an arson charge. Jail records do not list an attorney for him.
The suspect had told investigators that he met Kelley online, and they began dating over the summer. He stated that he had used a fake name with her but that she would eventually figure out his real name and that he was married, according to the affidavit.
However, the investigation revealed that in conversations on Ferguson’s phone, Kelley had told him that she would reveal the affair to his wife if he did not answer her.
Additionally, investigators found that a vehicle Ferguson’s wife had reported stolen was located near Kelley’s home in Collin County, north of Dallas, with gloves, duct tape, and a blanket inside, as per the affidavit. The shocking discovery has left the community in shock and mourning for the victim.
