MIDLAND, Texas (KMID/KPEJ)- The City of Midland announced Wednesday that Wadley-Barron Park has reopened to the pubic following an investigation that closed the park, including the walking trails, since mid-January.
It is unclear what, if any, evidence was recovered amid a search of the duck pond.
On January 17, the Midland Police Department said several agencies were assisting in the investigation, looking for evidence in connection with a double murder that happened on December 17, 2022, at the Ranch Apartments.
