According to Local 8 News in Tennessee, they have obtained a search warrant filed by the State in the Emma Jane Walker murder case by her alleged ex-boyfriend William Riley Gaul. The State also requested Gaul’s DNA, as well.

Gaul is indicted for first-degree murder of the former 16-year-old Central High School cheerleader. He’s also charged with aggravated stalking, theft, tampering with evidence, reckless endangerment, employing a firearm during a dangerous felony, and felony murder.

The law enforcement authorities requested DNA samples from the alleged suspect after a police report on Nov. 20, 2016.

Gaul’s grandfather, James Walker, reported, according to law enforcement, a 9 mm handgun missing from a vehicle on Nov. 20. He discovered that the gun was missing on Nov. 18 from underneath the driver’s seat, where he had a holster.

Walker told the authorities that he briefly changed vehicles with his grandson so that he could get new tires on the vehicle. Walker alleged that he felt like Gaul took the gun because he was talking about committing suicide.

Gaul reportedly denied that he took the gun when he was approached by law enforcement authorities early on. Yet, Gaul’s friend leaked to the police that the alleged suspect showed him the gun on Nov. 19, 2016, the day before Walker was found dead.

Gaul then reportedly asked the same friend to get rid of the weapon on Nov. 22, 2016. That same day, the search warrant says, that the authorities tracked the two near his grandfather’s house.

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office did a traffic stop, where they found the weapon Gaul said he did not know about. Judge Steven Sword asked for two DNA samples to match the DNA on the weapon.

The authorities believe that Gaul shot Walker while she was sleeping through a bedroom window. She reportedly ended the relationship with him two weeks prior to her death.
