Okla. Town on Edge With Child Killer Loose
Sheriff Urges Parents to Keep Close Eye on Kids After Best Friends’ Shooting Deaths
Some callers have provided tips sending investigators from the sheriff’s office and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations in different directions as they attempt to establish a motive for the double murder and identify a suspect.
Other callers have expressed concern for the safety of their children, knowing that someone responsible for murdering two children has not been brought to justice. Authorities have said they believe the killer or killers were local to the rural Oklahoma town, with knowledge of the area. The bodies were found on a dirt road near a busy highway overpass known as a trash-dumping spot.
There is a $14,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the deaths of Skyla Whitaker, 11, and Taylor Paschal-Placker, 13, of Weleetka, Okla. Source: ABC News
