Silent 911 calls lead police to murder scene

A 27-year-old woman was found dead in her home in Sulphur Springs early Tuesday afternoon.

According to Sulphur Springs Police Chief Jim Bayuk, Police dispatchers received two 911 calls from the residence, both times with nothing on the other end but silence.

Bayuk tells Kerry Craig of  the Sulphur Springs News-Telegram that officers were dispatched to the home where the body of Jessica Tyler Crayton was found with "massive trauma to her neck and throat area."

Her husband, Tony Dewayne Crayton is in police hospital custody after jumping from the League Street overpass onto Interstate 30 about an hour after the murder. He is listed in stable condition

Bayuk also says that Tony Crayton is the only suspect at this time, and will face murder charges once he is discharged from the hospital.

Funeral services for Jessica Crayton are pending with West Oaks Funeral Home.
