OSBI Agents Help Adair County Sheriff's Office Investigate Murder Outside Rural Church


The Adair County Sheriff’s Office requested Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents assist with a homicide near the intersection of South County Road 6920 and Highway 100. Late in the afternoon Tuesday the pastor of the Pleasant Valley Holiness Church drove to his church to find a murder victim lying in the parking lot. This church is approximately 25 yards from the road.

The unidentified victim had trauma to his head that may have been inflicted early Tuesday morning. Overnight, officials in Adair County and Cherokee County checked missing person’s reports for an individual of similar height, build, and race. So far, no reports have been found that could be linked to our victim.

OSBI Latent Print Analysts will roll prints from the body today and enter them into the state’s Automated Fingerprint Identification System for a possible match. The medical examiner’s office will perform an autopsy to determine a cause and manner of death.

If anyone has information about this case, please call the OSBI at 1-800-522-8017.
