MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A second arrest has been made in the case of a missing University of Memphis nursing student whose body was found in Arlington in December.
Cassius Bryant, 22, is in jail on $2 million bond, charged with first-degree murder, especially aggravated robbery, tampering with evidence and filing a false report. He was booked Monday.
The Memphis Police Department confirmed his arrest was related to the death of BarShay Wilson.
Wilson, 25, had been set to graduate from nursing school Dec. 10, but never showed up after leaving a party the night before at a Fox Meadows apartment.
Police on Jan. 6 charged 22-year-old Vincent Patterson with murder in Wilson’s death.
According to an affidavit from Patterson’s arrest, Patterson told police that he and Bryant shot Wilson, took his marijuana and set fire to the Camaro after dumping Wilson’s body nearby.
