UNDATED -- The family of a woman found dead in an Oklahoma state park in 2009 is offering a $30,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the case.

Investigators and family members released information Wednesday on 23-year-old New Jersey native Jody Rilee-Wilson to keep the investigation into the young woman's death in the public eye.

Rilee-Wilson's body was discovered by a hang gliding instructor flying over the Heavener Runestone Park on May 8, 2009. Autopsy results indicated her body had been dragged to a mountaintop after what authorities call a suspicious death.

About a month after her death, her Chevy S10 Blazer was found in Henryetta, parked outside the Pig Out Palace restaurant.

Jody Rilee-Wilson lived in Wister, Oklahoma. Her husband, Donald "Bo" Wilson and family left for a funeral on May 5, leaving Rilee-Wilson at the family home alone. She last spoke to her parents on that date.

The next day, the husband returned to the house to find it empty. Her body was found about 9 miles from the family home. The specific cause of death was not determined.

"It is still hard for us to comprehend that we will never see her again. Solving this case will only bring closure to part of our nightmare," parents Jim and Stacey Rilee said in the release.

"Please help. If you know anything, no matter how small or insignificant you think it may be, it may be the clue that brings this case to an end and gets another piece of scum off the streets."

Police have not identified a suspect in the case which is listed on the America's Most Wanted website.
