Prince William County police say officers found the body of 35-year-old Edward Hale of Glen Burnie near baseball fields at a school in the Bristow, Virginia, area on Monday. Hale had been wanted for the murder of his girlfriend, 31-year-old Jessica Leigh Wilson. Police say Hale shot Wilson just before 6:30 a.m. Sunday in Bristow after the two had been arguing. Hale fled in a Honda Accord. Wilson died at a hospital. Police found Hale’s body shortly after finding the Honda Accord near an elementary school, prompting officials to lock down two schools as they searched for Hale.
