Earl "Jay" WOLFE, 17-year-old W/N Male, went to check a vehicle that was loitering in the parking lot of his father’s lumber yard. They engaged in a brief chase.

Wolfe was later discovered dead within his vehicle. He had been shot 3 times in the head along a secluded stretch of Bennington Road about 2 miles from his home.
