Arrest made in shooting death of Foley man


An arrest has been made in connection with the shooting death of a Foley man whose body was found in March after he went missing months earlier, the St. Cloud Times reports.

The body of Jamie Wylie, 31, of Foley, was found on County Road 75 just east of St. Cloud in March. According to WCCO, the Midwest Medical Examiner's Office determined Wylie had been killed, and the Benton County's Sheriff's Office said in early April that he died of a gunshot wound.

Wylie's last contact with family was by cellphone Dec. 10.

The suspect, a 25-year-old man, was booked into the Benton County Jail and is being investigated on suspicion of second-degree murder. He has not been formally charged and might not make his first court appearance until next week, authorities say.

The suspect was arrested without incident about 10:15 a.m. Thursday morning in rural Stearns County between St. Joseph and Avon, a sheriff's official says.

According to authorities, the suspect has spent most of his adult life in jail or prison, and has convictions ranging from theft to drug possession and burglary.

The man also pleaded guilty in July 2009 to one count of drive-by shooting after admitting to firing several shots into a St. Cloud home in August 2008.
