OAKLAND COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Authorities say the search is over for a Michigan teen suspected in the deadly stabbing of a woman. 

Investigators said the stabbing happened sometime between midnight and 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, Aug. 22 in the 10000 block of Sleepy Hollow Boulevard near Dixie Highway and Holly Road.

The Oakland County Sheriff’s Office put out a statewide BOL for 15-year-old Steven Wilkerson who allegedly stabbed 65-year-old Mary Barnes inside her mobile home.

Police said they received a call from Wilkerson's father, who said his son left a note saying he was going to kill his grandmother. 

Investigators found Barnes with multiple stab wounds inside the bedroom of her home. The suspected weapon, a large kitchen knife, was found at the scene, police said. 

Later Tuesday morning the victim's vehicle, a 2006 Pontiac G6 with Michigan license plate BAM 0631, was found in the village of Holly. A body, believed to be that of Wilkerson, was also found on the railroad tracks nearby, according to Undersheriff Michael McCabe. 

McCabe said it is "obvious the body was struck by a passing train."
