In a probable cause statement, investigators alleged that Wilhite had Quote”removed the firearm from her body and concealed it within her personal belongings.”

During questioning at the jail, Wilhite admitted possessing the firearm, but claimed: “she was only holding it for another female detainee.”

However, fellow inmates in Wilhite’s housing unit “all stated Amy was in possession of the firearm,” an investigator reported.
