The alleged victim of the aggression was reportedly the last person to see Jake Wilson before his disappearance in April.
In a police statement just prior to the attack, authorities indicated that they found evidence “consistent” with what they aimed to find in their search for the teen. Forensic analysis could take weeks to provide a definitive identification.
“I blame you,” Mike Wilson shouted as he leaped at Neiswonger before being restrained by officers and others at the scene.
