Arrest  Made in Mustang Murder

OSBI agents and Mustang Police detectives have arrested Rebecca Louise Bryan (d.o.b. 5/8/1959) on a complaint of first degree murder for the murder of her husband, Keith Bryan. The arrest took place today (9/23) just after noon inside a hotel room at the Hilton Gardens Inn at 801 S. Meridian in Oklahoma City. Becky Bryan is being booked into the Canadian County Jail.

During a search of the crime scene, agents discovered a Ruger LCP .380 handgun inside a dryer in the couple’s utility room. The serial number to that gun matched a Ruger gun case found underneath a mattress in the couple’s bedroom on her side of the bed. The serial number of the gun case matched the serial number on the gun. Also found near the handgun box were two Blazer .380 auto ammunition boxes, the same brand of ammunition loaded in the gun. A full-metal projectile was recovered from the center cushion of the couch where Keith Bryan had been seated at the time of the shooting. It, along with the gun found inside the dryer and a spent .380 Blazer ammunition cartridge found with the gun, was sent to the OSBI Forensic Science Center for testing. Firearms analysts matched the gun, the casing, and the projectile.

Also, the dryer was not near the path Becky Bryan, the only witness, told investigators an intruder used to enter and exit the home.

At this time, investigators do not believe anyone else is involved in this murder case. Charges are pending.
