Investigators Expand Search in Le Flore County Murder
OSBI agents and Le Flore County Sheriff’s Deputies continue to track leads on the whereabouts of murder suspect Robert Lynn Owens. Investigators believe Owens shot and killed Jeffrey Tackett inside Owens’ Spiro home January 5th. Tackett died on the way to a Fort Smith, Arkansas hospital. Owens has been on the run from law enforcement since then.
Investigators now believe Owens is not on the lam by himself. Agents are also looking for Owens’ girlfriend Michelle Dees (a.k.a. Craig, d.o.b. 8/3/84). Dees is 5’2” tall, weighs about 95 pounds with blond hair and hazel eyes.
If anyone sees either or both of these people, please contact either the Le Flore County Sheriff’s Office at 918-647-2317 or the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.
Owens could be armed with a handgun.
