Wright County Homicide

Update on the Wright County Homicide case the body of Shane Masterson was found by Texas County Sheriff James Sigman this morning in Texas County app 3 miles from the Wright County Line. Masterson died of a self inflicted gunshot wound. His body was recovered not too far from where his vehicle was recovered last night. A handgun was also recovered.
During the investigation process over the last few days it was determined that Masterson was the suspect in the death of Novie Baney due to evidence collected from statements and Masterson’s truck.
This death occurred on Baty road on Monday app 10 miles north of Mtn Grove at Beaver Creek.
I would like to thank all the people that have called with information to the investigating offices.
I would also like to thank the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Mountain Grove, Mansfield Police Departments and the Texas County Sheriff’s Office for assisting the Wright County Sheriff’s Office on this case. Also my deputies that have worked countless hours investigating the case.
I ask that everyone say a prayer for the families of both of these men to give the comfort.
Sheriff Glenn Adler
