Woman wanted in missing persons case back in Pike, homicide charges could be filed in Floyd

A woman wanted in a Pike County missing persons case was extradited from Fayette County early Thursday.

Krystle Williams, the woman wanted in connection to the burning of a vehicle with humans remains inside of it, is back in Pike County. Williams surrendered to Fayette County police on Wednesday and was extradited back to Pike County on Thursday. She is facing a charge of felony arson in relation to the burning of a vehicle owned by the father of Wesley Hook, who has been missing since June.

Officials believe the human remains found in the back of that burned vehicle are those of Wesley Hook, and Williams, along with Eric DeLeon and Enos Little, could face homicide charges in relation to Hook’s death. Assistant Pike Commonwealth’s Attorney Donald Smith said Williams and DeLeon will be prosecuted in the burning of the car in Pike County, but the potential homicide charges could be prosecuted in Floyd County since it is believed that Wesley Hook was killed at the Alpike Motel at Ivel.

Krystle Williams, Eric DeLeon and Enos Little remain lodged in the Pike County Detention Center. None of them have been charged in relation to Wesley Hook’s disappearance, which remains active as a missing persons case.
