Roxanne Stratton visits the site where the body of her son Jason Wing was found Thursday afternoon.

"I don't want to believe it was my son, he's only 21," she said.

The young man from Fort Covington had not been seen since August 2010.

"Living hell. I knew something was wrong. He always called," she said.

Police located Wing's remains at this private camp on Grantville Road in Norfolk. They say Wing's friend, Dustin Trimm, 37, shot and buried Wing's body on the property in late August or early September 2010. Police suspected foul play from the beginning and said Trimm was the focus of their investigation.

"Our investigation found several discrepancies in the accounts of witnesses as to where he was last seen and the circumstances in which he apparently left the area," said New York State Police Captain Robert LaFountain.

Police would not say what led them to dig at the site where Wing's body was found. Neighbors say investigators recently visited the camp, which is owned by a friend of Trimm's. They claim the site is commonly used to burn tires and other trash.

"There were cops over there, maybe in September and there were rumors going on then," said Raymond Premo, who lives near murder scene.

Investigators say they have not ruled out additional arrests in the case. County prosecutors say multiple factors were behind the murder but they won't specify.

"We do have a motive however it will not be disclosed," said LaFountain.

Wing's mother hopes justice comes soon for her son.

"I want Dustin to pay for what he did to my son," said Stratton.
