According to the arrest affidavit signed by Justice of the Peace Susan Werner, one victim told police she’s known Wilson since elementary school. She now lives out of state, but was in town visiting family. Wilson came and got her so they could “catch up.”

She told police that they were “driving around town talking”when Wilson said he needed to go to Walmart to get some water.

They somehow got separated inside and when she went to the self-check out to make a purchase, the girl noticed Wilson was not with her. When she found him, Wilson told her to come outside.

She said when she got outside, he was “very upset” which made her nervous

Another customer heard Wilson yelling at his friend in the parking lot. He then watched Wilson grab a “grease gun” and break out the driver’s side window of his pickup truck.

The customer asked Wilson’s friend if she was ok. She told him that she was scared by Wilson’s actions.

The customer suggested the girl tell Wilson that she needed to use the restroom. He then escorted her inside and waited “for a small period of time.”

When they went back outside to see if Wilson had left, the customer said Wilson revved his engine and sped toward them I his Dodge Ram 2500.

The customer grabbed the girl and pulled her, and himself, out the path of the truck which then crashed through the front doors.

Wilson drove to the cereal aisle, turned around and drove back out.

The customer said if he would not have moved, “he would have been struck by the (truck) at a high rate of speed.”
