Eighteen-year-old Eric Wood of Summerville was found dead in Mobile County, Alabama in December of 2016. 

Authorities in Mobile County arrested twenty-four-year-old Matthew Ryan Howard in February and charged him in connection with Wood’s murder. 

The District Attorney in Mobile County said that prior to the death of Wood, Howard had only been released from the Alabama Department of Corrections for six months. Court documents show that he served a portion of a 10-year sentence for a conviction on two counts of second-degree burglary in 2011.

Howard’s attorney maintained his client’s innocence in the first appearance before a judge in Mobile County, but did admit that Howard is a meth addict.

Reports from Mobile County say that Howard told reporters that he believes he is being set up by the “Illuminate.”  Howard was being held without bond facing charges of murder.

Eric Wood’s body was found December 12, 2016 near some railroad tracks in Mobile County, Alabama.  Investigators say that he was shot in the face.
