STOCKDALE -- A Kirby man is being held in the Wilson County Jail on a total of $160,000 bond, following the discovery of a body Nov. 13 in a remote area of the Quail Run Golf Club near S.H. 123 north of here.
Wilson County Sheriff Joe D. Tackitt Jr. confirmed that 18-year-old Kyle Jacob McKay is charged with murder, unauthorized used of a motor vehicle, and possession of more than 4 grams, but less than 200 grams, of a controlled substance in Penalty Group 1. He is charged with shooting 23-year-old Dakota Reynolds of San Antonio in what Tackitt described as a “drug deal gone bad.”
Investigators allege that McKay shot Reynolds to death, Tackitt said. They believe the shooting occurred in Reynolds’ 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier before the man’s body was dumped in the overgrown area, where it was found by a group of hog hunters. Reynolds had been shot twice in the head.
Deputies arrested McKay Nov. 14 on Sixth Street in Stockdale, after witnesses reported that he had been seen driving Reynolds’ car after the shooting occurred. Tackitt said the two knew each other, and witnesses confirmed that they had been in contact with each other on the morning of the incident.
