Agencies plan meeting to discuss details of McDuffie slaying

Several law enforcement agencies plan to meet next week to review details in the death of a Gibson, Ga., woman who was shot in rural McDuffie County then dragged into War­ren County, where her body was left beside the road.

Pat Morgan, the assistant special agent in charge at the Georgia Bureau of Investigation in Thomson, said an autopsy of Jen­nifer Lynn Wells, 36, has been completed, and he is await­ing the results. Morgan said he is hopeful the agencies involved can meet next week to share information.

Wells was discovered on the roadside Sept. 21. Evidence suggests Wells was shot at Happy Valley Store on Wrens Highway in McDuffie County then dragged more than a mile to where she was discovered off Happy Valley Road in Warren County.

Her former husband, Ricky Charles Wells, 43, and Tina Ann Wells, 40, are being held in the McDuffie County Law En­force­ment Center on murder charges.

After the incident, investigators said it wasn’t clear whether Jennifer Wells died after the gunshot or the dragging. Authorities have said they are hopeful the autopsy will answer that question.
