Here is some info reported very recently from the following site:

http://www.kval.com/news/national/104495859.html

According to court documents, Wilson was interviewed twice about Cowell's disappearance, but said he never interacted with her and did not know who killed her.

Police said she had been fatally beaten, stabbed and strangled, and an autopsy report concluded that someone tried to cut off her arm after she was dead.

However, other students at the school told investigators that they saw Wilson speaking with Cowell and that he told them he thought Cowell was "hot," the documents said.

When confronted with the DNA evidence during an interview with police on Wednesday, Wilson asked for a lawyer and was arrested.

The documents filed in court Tuesday indicate that several people had concerns about Wilson:

- One friend wrote a letter to police in August claiming Wilson had an "obsession with death, dead bodies and serial killers" and had once tried to choke a female friend.

- Another woman called police and said she worked with Wilson previously and that he told her he killed a guest at a hotel where he worked several years ago by strangling her with a belt, according to the court documents. Police wrote that they were not able to confirm the killing occured.

- A woman who was a student at the Academy of Hair Design with Wilson said that Wilson told her he "liked to cut people up" when he was working at funeral homes. Investigators said Wilson worked at several funeral homes in the Wenatchee area.

When detectives searched Wilson's home they found blood in a basement stairwell, but it was not clear to whom the blood belonged.

In court on Thursday Wilson said he could not afford an attorney and was appointed a public defender. His lawyer did not challenge the bail request from prosecutors, who said Wilson is a "potential threat" to the community despite his lack of criminal history

Do you suppose he was the one that was rumored to be seen with her at a car wash??? Was this ever confirmed?

It would be a bit odd if he was attracted to her and she rejected him...that he would not assault her once having control of her. I was looking for a logical explanation for that.

The only other logical reason I can think of is if his motive was the brutality aspect itself.

I think he wasn't on the list of suspects because nobody found these pictures. I don't think he appeared to be normal to many who knew him in real life. If someone tells me they enjoyed cutting up bodies...they don't appear normal to me. And I am VERY open minded.

He absolutely would have been a suspect had anyone found this stuff sooner.

The fact is there are millions of people that look, act, and have art preferences that are similar to our suspects. If you were to go to the mall, you would see dozens of boys who look just like him and you would not be able to tell their sexual orientation. The focus should be on the suspect and not labeling him. When you label someone, you place everyone who looks like him in the same category. There are hundreds of nice people who look just like our suspect.

If you look at all of the evidence and suspects we have logged, you will notice that he was not on the list? Why? The reason he was not is because he appeared to be a normal person. He appeared to be normal to us, his friends, his family, and even MC’s friends. If a suspect had not been named, he would still be just some guy…. Even now some of his friends think he is innocent.

While I am not gay, I have friends that are and I don’t like the fact that we can look at someone and say he is gay. If he was gay would it matter?

possible dismemberment? Ugh.

How soon will media post the affivdavit(s) supplied to them by LE? This sounds to be even uglier than imagined.

Can't fathom what that poor girl went thru.

Court documents sheds light on case

• "Dr. Gina Fino, who performed an autopsy on Cowell’s body, stated 'an attempt was made to amputate her arm after she died.”'"

More from the PC:

That piece of duct tape is the one thing they had to tie to Wilson.

Phone calls/texts from Mac phone's COULD have originated from 404 Chelan, not the boat launch.

Wow. They don't believe she was murdered at Crescent Bar.

LE confirms he had ties with at least one mortuary. Was Ellensburg where he claimed to have previously killed a woman.

Somebody WAS seen walking down Pitcher Canyon.

• Three people reported they saw someone walking down Squilchuck Road not far from Pitcher Canyon Road between 1630 (4:30 p.m.) and 1730 (5:30 p.m.) Feb. 9. Cowell’s car was found abandoned up Pitcher Canyon later that day. The affidavit states “two witnesses described this person as wearing a dark coat. Two witnesses gave a physical description of the person that closely matches Christopher Wilson.”

Interesting she was still in her work clothes. She must have had more than one set of uniforms because one was also found inside her car.

Fearing she went straight to his apartment from the Academy and this all went down very quickly.

Spit info you little weasel!

ETA: Also from that above link:

• During a search of Wilson’s residence on Wednesday, “blood spatter was found in the stairwell of the residence between the basement and the main floor. Part of the spatter was directional, consistent with coming from something not (in) contact with the wall that was deposited there. A different set of blood spatter was consistent with a contact transfer stain, meaning something bloody touched the wall and was left behind as a sample.”

What did anyone think of the press conference? One surprise for me was that Mackenzie was "not murdered where she was found" and that some texts were traced to 404 S. Chelan.

Here is a link to a video, with a close friend of Chris Wilson's speaking about how anxious he was to clear himself:

(Note: The reporter states the duct tape was found on MC's body, which according to the presser a few minutes ago, is NOT the case.)

Short form of this from the PC and updated stories, it appears she went to his place, was murdered there, then somehow moved to Crescent Bar. Sine the one single piece of DNA evidence they have at this time is the piece of duct tape found along the "drag trail" at CB from the driveway down to where she was found by the river, he must have moved her in another vehicle?

At least they as much stated as they got nada from inside her car. They stated directly they wouldn't have known it was him without that one piece from where body was found.

Did he have a vehicle or borrow one from somebody to move her, then head back home and rive her car up to Pitcher Canyon to dump it?

I caught that he normally walked from Academy to his place, but that was only about 2 blocks.

Was there a "band" van that LE has served warrant on?

Any locals know what he drove?

Point 15 in there, he stated mac had never been in HIS car or home, so he does own a vehicle. Do we know if LE removed one on a warrant yesterday?

Wonder how fast the state crime lab will move on the blood spatter evidence from his home and anything pulled from his vehicle? Hopefully it just moved up the priority list.

So senseless.

Did we know witnesses had seen someone walking down Pitcher Canyon, which was obviously him? A crime that seemed to lack evidence and seemed to have taken multiple perps turns out to have left a good bit of evidence and appears to be the work of just one guy. Still needed luck finding the DNA that connected him. I bet LE figures out his relationship to the murder weapon pretty quick.

The 2nd degree charge document

The second degree murder charge. max penalty is life and/or $50,000 so if convicted, still good chance he spends life behind bars, and gee, wouldn't the big boys there just love him.
