Arrests Made in Missing Lindsay Man's Disappearance

Last night, OSBI agents discovered the body of 32-year-old Nathan Dale Blankenship in Seminole County near Bowlegs. The Lindsay man was reported missing out of Oklahoma City several weeks ago. The medical examiner will perform an autopsy on the body to determine the cause and manner of Blankenship’s death.

Overnight, agents arrested two women for Unauthorized Removal of a Dead Body – a felony. Jessica Cornwell (d.o.b. 11-26-1979), of Oklahoma City, and Adena Beasley (d.o.b. 3/22/1980), of Oklahoma City, were booked into the Seminole County jail. The women were acquaintances of Blankenship’s. Beasley is pictured in a black t-shirt.

The OSBI is now investigating this case as a homicide.
