Pvt. Gregory Morales | Unsolved Homicide

The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division (CID) has increased the reward to $50,000 for credible information relating to the death of Pvt. Gregory Morales.

Morales’ skeletal remains were discovered in June 2020, in Killeen, Texas, in a field near the 3200 block of Florence Road after Army CID Special Agents received a tip as to the location of the body. Foul play is suspected. 

Private Morales was last seen driving his personally owned vehicle outside of Fort Hood in Killeen, Texas on the night of Aug. 19, 2019. The last known verbal contact with Morales was Aug. 20, 2019. Morales, also known as Gregory Wedel, was out processing from the Army and was scheduled to be discharged within a couple of days when he disappeared. Wedel was his last name before taking his wife’s name in marriage.

Army CID strongly encourages anyone with information to please come forward.  Anyone with information can contact Army CID Special Agents at 254-287-2722. 

Persons wishing to remain anonymous will be honored to the degree allowable under the law and the information will be held in the strictest confidence allowable. The payout of cash rewards to military and federal employees for information leading to the conviction of person(s) involved is contingent upon the accuracy and value of information provided, and the actions taken based upon that information.
