Coast teen was named suspect in Alabama robbery. Days later, she’s found dead in Ohio.

A Jackson County teen’s body was found in Ohio less than a week after being named a suspect in an armed robbery at an Alabama hotel.

Baylee Wall was found dead behind a Cincinnati high school baseball field around 9 p.m. Wednesday, according to WLWT 5. The report said her body went unidentified for days until the department released photos of her tattoos.

Her death was deemed “suspicious” by the Cincinnati Police Department.

According to Daphne police in Alabama, 18-year-old Wall was identified as one of two suspects after surveillance video was released from the Microtell Inn.

Gary Eubanks Jr., 25, entered Microtel Inn and Suites on Monday, Oct. 21. He demanded the clerk give him cash while armed with a handgun, according to police. Wall had entered the lobby shortly before Eubanks and asked about room rates and left.

Eubanks, who is from Mobile, is still at large, but NBC 15 reports police believe he may still be in Ohio. The vehicle the two were possibly traveling on is a 2015 Volkswagen Passat with a Mississippi tag JGE1791.

WKRG reports Eubanks is the prime suspect in her murder.

NBC 15 confirmed with Jackson County Sheriff’s Office that family had reported Wall’s disappearance last week. According to Wall’s Facebook page, she attended East Central High School and lived in Mobile. Daphne police said she was from Moss Point.

Her sister, Madison Wall, posted on Facebook about Baylee going missing on Oct. 25. “Most of you know the situation she’s in but we just want her found safely,” she said.

After the news of her death, she shared a picture of them both with the shared text, “I’ll love you forever BayBay.”
