Details of Disappearance
Ms. Wiles was last seen in Belleview, Florida on April 21, 2007. She and her sister went to some bars that day. Billy Ashton, Ms. Wile's boyfriend, followed them. Ms. Wiles asked her sister to pull over, and got into the 1995 Chrystler New Yorker Ashton was driving. Ashton later claimed he dropped her off around the corner from where her estranged husband lived. Ms. Wiles has never been heard from again. Her family initially thought she had gone to Texas. She was reported missing in early May.
On July 24, the vehicle Ms. Wiles was last seen in was found at Wildcat Lake in Lake County, Florida. Blood, believed to be hers, was found in the trunk. Authorities launched an extensive search for her body in the Ocala National Forest, but have turned up no evidence thus far. Ashton is currently incarcerated for habitually driving on a suspended license. He has a history of violent behavior and served six years in prison in connection with an attack on another girlfriend.
Foul play is suspected in Ms. Wiles's case. The search for her body is ongoing. Ashton was arrested in June 2010 and charged with second degree murder in her case. He is currently awaiting trial.
