Agents Continue Searching for Weapon Used in Weleetka Murders

The OSBI is again asking for the public's help in finding the gun used to kill two Weleetka girls more than three years ago. The OSBI is confident the gun previously identified as a Glock .40 model 22 was used to murder 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker and 13-year-old Taylor Placker June 8, 2008, about 100 yards from Placker's home. The serial number on that gun is EKG463US.

An intense investigation has revealed that gun may have been sold at a gun show in Tulsa this past March. Previous releases on this weapon have produced no viable leads. The OSBI is offering up to $5,000 for this firearm. Agents are confident the person who now owns this weapon is not responsible for the girls' murders. If you have information about this gun, please call the OSBI at 1-800-522-8017.
