Wilson, 81, was last seen leaving his Lakewood home Oct. 31, at approximately 3 p.m., driving his 1997 red Ford F-150. On Nov. 5, Wilson’s truck was recovered in an area northwest of I-25 and Colfax Avenue in Denver.
Two other suspects, Ricardo Gonzalez Perez and Savannah Nicole Wilson — Gail Wilson’s daughter — were arrested in early November. Gonzalez Perez is being held on suspicion of First-Degree Murder. Savannah is being held on suspicion of Accessory to First-Degree Murder.
Traffic surveillance cameras captured images of Gail’s pickup truck at various locations in the metro area with a large piece of rolled-up carpet and black plastic garbage bags in the bed of the truck. Those items were never recovered.
