He’s already claiming that he has no idea where Aleah Beckerle is. He may possibly play the victim. The story starts at 6, Indiana time. Of course I’m not there so I expect that those of you who will watch it knows to keep the conversation going.

Here’s an excerpt

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) – Jess Raatz spoke exclusively to James Wilson Jr. at the Vanderburgh County Jail on Friday.

“I don’t want to be labeled a monster,” he said. “I’d like to tell everyone what really happened.”

Wilson was wanted for beating a homeless man into giving a false confession in the Aleah Beckerle case. He was arrested and charged with battery and two counts of criminal confinement on Wednesday.

On Friday, Wilson admitted to hitting the homeless man in the mouth with his fist but denied hitting the man with poles. He said he has no knowledge of Aleah’s whereabouts.

Jess Raatz will have more on her exclusive interview with Wilson on 14 News at 6.

Please watch this if you can.

James Wilson states that he doesn’t know what happened to Aleah but that he feels there’s more to the story. He questions how someone could enter a house and no one hear anything. 

He also mentions that he didn’t beat Martin with a metal pipe.
