Cincinnati cops said they discovered Baylee Wall, of Jackson County, Miss., on Wednesday after responding to a high school for a report of “a person down.” Her death was being investigated as a homicide, FOX10 Mobile reported.
Police in Daphne, Ala., said two days earlier Wall helped her boyfriend, Gary Eubanks Jr., rob the Microtel Inn of cash at gunpoint.
Eubanks, 25, was being sought as of Monday.
Steven Tillman told FOX19 Cincinnati that Hall was his stepdaughter and that she was “just your typical 18-year-old girl.”
He said she began dating Eubanks in August.
“I still can’t believe it,” he told the station. “I really can’t on either issue. That’s not how she was raised. That’s not how she was.”
He said police told him his stepdaughter was shot in the head.
As Cincinnati police sought to identify Hall they released photos of her tattoos and the clothes she was wearing when she was killed, the station reported.
Police said Eubanks has relatives in the Cincinnati area, according to the station.
