A body was found in rural Iowa, leading to an all day stand-off with authorities. A neighbor found the body of 47-year-old Gregory William O'Hare in the middle of the road in Linn County at about 8:30 this morning. An autopsy is being conducted to determine the cause of death of this man. His death is believed to be a homicide.
The believed suspect, 63-year-old Martin Paul Wilkinson, refused to come out of his home. Authorities resorted to using tear gas to bring the man out, and then used a stun gun to get him under control. He was then taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries before being arrested.
This is a strange situation. What could be going on between these two men, leading to one's murder? Surely there will be more details available when the autopsy is complete.
Iowa does have a lot of unusual things going on these days, with all the attempted kidnappings recently, as well as the abduction of cousins, Lyric Cook-Morrissey and Elizabeth Cook. The search for them is still in full swing, even as leads subside.
