Investigators have charged a local man with murder and tampering with a corpse, after he reported his wife missing from their Katy area home.

On March 19, 2019, Jay Patrick Hammersley (04/04/75), reported his wife, Mara Vestal, 29, had left and not returned to their residence in the 20200 block of Golden Mesa in the Sun Down Glen subdivision.

He told investigators Vestal had left 2 to 3 weeks earlier with her belongings.

Investigators interviewed Hammersley during the course of the investigation, and he admitted to killing his wife and disposing of her body.

He is currently being held on a $105,000 bond in the Harris County Sheriff’s Office Detention Facility.
