OSBI Seeking Public's Assistance in Boise City Homicide

The OSBI is seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect who murdered 77-year-old Charles Nieman at the Boise City, Oklahoma, Loaf’n Jug convenience store on June 12. The suspect is believed to be a Hispanic male, 5’6”-5’8”, medium build, in his late 20s to early 30s. He was seen fleeing the area on foot wearing khaki shorts and a dark-colored t-shirt.

Agents are also seeking information regarding a late 1990s to early 2000s GM extended-cab pickup truck that the suspect was seen getting out of just moments before the shooting. The truck was occupied by two other Hispanic males.

Within one to one and a half hours after the shooting, both the vehicle and suspects were reported in Campo and Springfield, Colorado, convenience stores approaching individuals and asking for money to buy fuel. Witnesses at both locations reported the truck had Louisiana license plates. The subjects told one witness that they were traveling to Denver, Colorado.
The OSBI is offering up to a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the murder. If anyone has information in this case, please call the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.
