Investigators said the suspect in a Wagoner shooting Friday confessed and even led them to the victim's body near Keystone Lake just north of Prue in Osage County. 

The only thing that's been confirmed is that a body was found in Osage County just off new Prue Road down County Road 1755, and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has taken over the case. Initially, OSBI was on the scene assisting Wagoner police with the investigation. 

Joshua Daniel Blaylock was arrested Saturday night in the Turley area, police said. Police were looking for Blaylock after they said he shot Danny Potts, 26, in either the head or the neck Friday during an altercation at a Wagoner residence.

After the shooting, police said Blaylock shoved Potts into his truck and drove away. 

While a positive identification hasn't been released yet, sources said the Osage County location is where Blaylock told investigators they could find Potts.

The medical examiner and investigators were on scene for several hours Sunday, and deputies have stayed overnight at the scene where the body was found. Investigators are expected again April 24.
