Arrest Made in Cushing Murder

OSBI agents and Cushing police officers have made an arrest in a homicide that occurred Friday morning (12/2/11) in that city. About 7 o’clock Friday morning, a person working in the area of the 100 block of west Broadway discovered a woman in critical condition with significant trauma to her body. The unidentified woman was transported to the hospital in Cushing where she later died. The medical examiner will determine her cause of death.

Agents and officers spent the day following leads. This evening, Benjamin Joel Andre Littlesun (d.o.b. 5/3/89) was arrested near the Wilshire Inn in Cushing on a felony warrant from Creek County. Littlesun was interviewed by agents and arrested on a complaint of murder for the death of the still unidentified woman. Agents and officers have a tentative identification of the victim, who is believed to be in her 40s. Once authorities have a positive identification, her name will be released. Littlesun was booked in to the Payne County jail on the murder complaint.
