Third suspect arrested in case of missing 81-year-old Lakewood man.

A third homicide suspect has been arrested in connection to a missing 81-year-old Lakewood man.

Jay Sean Griffith, 21, was arrested on Thursday in connection to the homicide of Gail Wilson, police said in a news release. Griffith is being held at the Jefferson County Jail on suspicion of tampering with a body and accessory to first-degree murder.

Ricardo Gonzalez Perez, 35, is being held for investigation of first-degree murder and Savannah Nicole Wilson, 24, his daughter, is in custody for investigation of accessory to first-degree murder.

Gail Wilson was last seen about 9:30 a.m. Oct. 31 leaving his home in the 1300 block of South Reed Street, according to Lakewood police.

Last week, police said unknown suspects drove Wilson’s truck, a 1997 red Ford F-150 with Colorado license plate BXX-317, to various spots in Denver at about 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 31 and unloaded items from the truck bed. A rolled-up carpet, a tall white laundry basket and numerous black bags, “items likely containing the body of Wilson,” were discarded in multiple areas around Colfax Avenue and Broadway, and East Sixth Avenue and York Street between 3 and 5 p.m. that day.

Wilson’s truck was recovered on Nov. 5 in an area just northwest of I-25 and Colfax in Denver. There was no sign of Wilson and he remains missing.
