OSBI Agents Investigate Craig County Homicide

The Craig County Sheriff’s Office requested assistance from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation regarding an overnight shooting death. OSBI agents were called about 5 o’clock Saturday morning to a home in rural Craig County off 4340 Road. John W. Beisley (d.o.b. 8-27-1946) had been shot to death inside his house. His wife, Glendora Beisley (d.o.b. 6-30-1964), was arrested for first degree manslaughter. Craig County authorities were alerted to the murder after Mrs. Beisley drove to the Muskogee 911 Center to report the shooting. Deputies arrived at the Beisley residence at approximately 3 a.m. to find the victim dead of a gunshot wound. The medical examiner’s office will perform an autopsy as agents continue to investigate the crime.
