Cowell Murder Update: 2nd Arrest Made

Murder Victim, Mackenzie Cowell Murder Victim, Mackenzie Cowell

WENATCHEE, Wash. - Police in Wenatchee have arrested a second person in the Mackenzie Cowell murder case.  22-year-old Tessa M. Schuyleman was arrested and charged with Rendering Criminal Assistance in the 1st Degree and Obstructing a Public Officer.  Schuyleman is a close friend of the man police say murdered Cowell. Investigators questioned the woman in October after Christopher Wilson was arrested and Schuyleman said she had no information about Wilson's involvement in the murder.

Investigators found pictures and videos that suggested that Schuyleman was lying to them.  In the images Schuyleman is seen posed on the floor of Wilson's apartment in the same location where the murder victim's blood stains were found.  Police say it appeared as if Schuyleman was "posing as a dead person."

 Two videos were found on Tessa Schyleman's cell phone by investigators.  In the first video, recorded on June 26th, Schuyleman is entering Wilson's apartment, moving aside a coffee table, and focusing on a clearly visible stain of dried blood on the floor, according to police.  The second video, shot four days later, shows Wilson asking Schuyleman if the apartment is clean.  According to investigators, Schuyleman replies, "Considering what happen..ing?" At the end of the second video, Schuyleman focuses on the area where the blood stain was and the stain was only slightly visible, indicating to investigators that it had been cleaned.

The videos were shot around the same time that Christopher Wilson moved out of the apartment.

Based on Schuyleman's concealment of the videos and the lies regarding her knowledge of the blood stain, investigators determined she rendered criminal assistance to Wilson and obstructed investigators seeking information about the murder

Schuyleman was located at a residence in Tumwater, Washington, Wednesday and transported to the Chelan County Regional Justice Center in Wenatchee.
