WENATCHEE — Mackenzie Cowell, 17, went missing after 3 p.m. Feb 9, 2010. The Wenatchee High School senior was seen on a parking lot surveillance video driving away from the Academy of Hair Design in downtown Wenatchee. Police believe she went to the 119 Okanogan Ave. apartment of fellow academy student Christopher Scott Wilson, now 31, where he murdered Cowell by strangling her, stabbing her in the neck and bludgeoning her in the head. They say cellphone records show calls to Wilson’s phone went unanswered between 3:30 p.m. and 3:49 p.m. — the period in which they believe the murder took place.
