  • OKLAHOMA CITY ‹ Two people targeted in a human trafficking case have been arrested for the September murder of an Oklahoma City man.
    Mark Woodward, Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics spokesperson, said Curtis Southerland and Gilberto Paz were arrested on warrants Wednesday.
    "OBN's Human Trafficking Unit has been in Weatherford, Oklahoma for the past several weeks investigating the October 15th disappearance of Jaray Mickell Wilson. While following up on leads in the case, our agents, along with the Custer County Sheriff's Department, Weatherford Police Department, and Oklahoma City Police Department, developed information leading to two suspects in the September 10th, 2012 homicide of Jonathon Kyle Patton in far southeast Oklahoma County," Woodward said, adding the pair have not been ruled out as suspects in Wilson's disappearance.
    OBN Director Darrell Weaver said the agency's Human Trafficking Unit continues to work aggressively to find answers in Wilson's disappearance.
    "It's amazing the tireless, relentless and focused work of the OBN Human Trafficking Unit in trying to locate missing Jaray Wilson. I commend this elite group of crime fighters and investigators who have teamed with the Custer County Sheriff's office, Weatherford Police Department and the OCPD to pursue justice. We will continue to work tirelessly to find Jaray or other human trafficking victims in our state. Frankly, losing one of our young people to such a horrific crime is simply unacceptable. We will never retreat or concede to those that want to do harm to our citizens," Weaver
    said.
