Anadarko Man Murdered, One Arrested

Wednesday afternoon, the Anadarko Police Department received a 911 call reporting a possible homicide victim located five miles south of Anadarko near the intersections of County Roads 1390 and 2700. Anadarko police and Caddo County Sheriff deputies responded to the scene and found 34-year-old David Roberts, of Anadarko, dead inside a vehicle. Several witnesses were able to give officers information about a suspect. Officers found the suspect walking in the area. Mark Edward Connelly (d.o.b. 3-26-1971) was arrested for murder in the first degree and booked into the Caddo County Jail. Connelly, originally from California, has been living in Caddo County.

The Caddo County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assistance in the homicide investigation. Agents spent the day at the scene collecting evidence, documenting the scene, and interviewing witnesses. Even though a weapon was found at the scene, the medical examiner’s office will determine the cause of death.
