“There’s a lot more,” Bill Ratcliff, the President at Cape Fear Investigative Services, Inc. in Wilmington, North Carolina said in a leaked recording.
In a conversation recently with two Private Investigators on the 3-year-old Mariah Woods case, April Smith with Common Wealth Investigative Solutions, LLC in Virginia and Bill Ratcliff, the President at Cape Fear Investigative Services, Inc. in Wilmington, North Carolina reveal shocking details about the case and conversations their sources close to the investigation revealed to them.
Mariah Woods, 3, of Dawson Cabin Road in Jacksonville, North Carolina was reported missing on Monday, November 27 after her mom, Kristy Kay Hunter said she put her to bed around 11:00 p.m. and her live-in boyfriend Earl Kimrey was the last to see Mariah alive when she apparently woke up around midnight on Sunday, November 26.
A statewide Amber Alert was issued for Mariah, and her body was found on December 2, in Pender County, North Carolina, approximately 25 miles away from her Dawson Cabin Road home.
How Mariah died has not been released, but an arrest warrant for Kimrey said he removed Mariah’s body from the scene of her death, and “secretly disposed of the dead child’s body.”
In the leaked recording sent to News In Onslow, Bill Ratcliff tells April Smith that he has a “couple of questions” for her, but questions turned into ‘shocking’ details that we know, the public hasn’t heard.
In the phone call, April says that Mariah Wood’s dad, Alex Wood’s family is concerned that Krysti Kay Hunter, the mother of Mariah Wood’s may be involved in her death and Earl Kimrey, the live-in boyfriend is covering for her.
“I really believe it’s getting ready to come to a head here,” Bill Witcliff says in the conversation.
According to Bill, Earl Kimrey knew where Mariah’s body was. That will kind of explain why police were searching area creeks like they were because he was giving them “hints.”
Bill then says Kimrey isn’t talking because he’s trying to cover his own child, who may have “strangled and killed Mariah.”
Those details were ‘shocking’ to April Smith, with Common Wealth Investigative Solutions, LLC.
The rumor was that Kristy Kay Hunter was involved in the killing of Mariah Kay Woods and that her boyfriend Earl Kimrey was covering for her. Bill dispute those rumors stating “Well so far that hasn’t came out at all.”
Bill says again in the audio, that Earl claims to be covering for his own biological child, who may have “strangled and killed Mariah.”
It seems as though investigators are going solely on what Earl Kimrey, the live-in boyfriend is telling them. The mom knowing about everything may eventually come out, according to Bill and she will probably be charged.
The question is, who killed Mariah Kay Woods?
