Arrest Connected To Clay Co. Remains

A Wichita Falls woman was arrested Friday in connection with a Clay County homicide.

Brittany Jan Green, 26, was charged with tampering with evidence. That is a second degree felony. Her bond is set at $150,000.

Clay County Sheriff Kenny Lemons said he expects several more arrest in this case.

The Clay County Sheriff's Office found remains Wednesday near a residence on FM 2332. The remains were found in a shallow grave. Officials said the person was a 30-40 year old man. He was killed more than five years ago. Lemons said they have an idea of who the man was, but they are still working to positively identify him.

Officials said they found evidence of foul play in the nearby residence. "We discovered and located evidence that did indicate a homicide," said Lemons. No one currently lives in the home, and Sheriff Lemons said the property owner has nothing to do with the crime. Investigators do want to speak the tenants of the house from five years ago.

Texas Rangers and a forensics team from the University of North Texas came to help with the investigation.

Right now, the search is on for a suspect. Lemons said he has persons of interest. He said his Office is working to track them down for questioning.
