Gilberto Paz, Kurtis Southerland and Stacy Buckmaster were arrested for the murder of 23-year old Jonathan Patton.

Cleveland County prosecutors are confident they have enough information in the case to keep the trio in jail, but say they couldn't have cracked the case if they weren't interviewing Buckmaster about the missing girl.

Wilson's parents tell News 9 they don't know how these three are connected to Jaray.

OBN says these three are just a few people of nearly a dozen that are being questioned in the Jaray Wilson case.
