This is a young woman from my home town. I knew her family but as she was years younger than me I only knew who she was. She died in a house fire AFTER she took her kids to school. Later, LE released that the fire was set intentionally with acclerants and were even on her clothes. She had told friends/family that she knew someone was following her in the days before. She was also going through a custody battle with ex husband. This was in 2004 and all I planned to do was link the cold case here BUT I can't even find a link ANYWHERE. I can't even find her obituary....I feel like I must be crazy but did find this:



Started: Jan 19 2004 11:08pm PST

Jan 6,2004 Shelia has passed away .Jan 6th,after taking her children to school she returned home when something terrible happened.A fire in her mobile home took her life still unsure what happened.It is so sad that her babies will have to grow up with out there mommy.Please keep her babies and family in prayer.She is loved and will be missed by all who knew her.


This is on classmates and I remembered seeing it back in 2004. How does a cold case become non-existent??? It is not on OSBI...I looked. It is not on FBI either. I would know if this crime was solved. Can anyone explain how someone who died tragically and that I KNOW was SUSPICIOUS and you can't even google it?

TIA!

I need to add that her married name was Hendrix. But I think she returned to her maiden name after divorce.

One possibility is a judge issuing an injunction banning anything from the case be published at the request of a concerned party but that is quite unusual and the ban would not typically apply outside the state, which I assume is Texas in this case, unless issued by a federal circuit judge, but I don't how this suspicious death matter would be under federal jurisdiction. It's intriguing indeed.

Thank you for finding this. I thought I searched the Democrat but didn't get anything. I really didn't know this young lady. I knew her ex-husband. I worked with him for maybe a year while he was still in high school. And I know they were in a battle for custody of the children during the time of her death. I don't like that. I hope they don't give up on this case.

Thank you all for looking for any info for me.

You're very welcome. I know all too well what's it like, remembering a few details of a case but not being able to find any info. That's what got the ball rolling on the 'Missing in WV/Sodder Family' case. Sometimes all we can do is put out what little info we have and hope someone can come up with something.

Tonight's topic is the case of Sheila Deviney.

On January 6, 2004, the burned body of Sheila Deviney was discovered. In 2006, after a grand jury investigation her death was changed from "accidental" to homicide. According to the State Fire Investigators report several fires were started in various locations within the home.

The day before the fire Sheila Deviney was in family court with her former husband Tyson Hendrix. Between orders of protection, verbal threats of murder, warrants for failure to pay child support and custody of the children, the motive points to only one person.

Show starts at 9:00 PM Eastern. You can listen HERE! (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/susanmurphymilano)

Also, if I were reading the link in my previous post and not knowing different, I would assume that he played football for OU. He went to Cameron University in Lawton, OK. Not saying that he wasn't a star in that university (small 5000 students) but not a huge football star by OK standards. JMO

Sheila was a sweet dear friend of mine, but unfortunately I cannot help with the case...I was not around when Sheila and Tyson were together....dating or married. I was totally crushed when I found out that she had died, it was almost two years after the fact. I lived in Maysville from my 7th grade year until I graduated, and lost contact with her until after she and Tyson had already split up. Sheila was two years younger than me, but we became pretty close my senior year. But a week after graduation I left for Texas, and pretty much lost touch with her. But....this is very ironic....I had been married for a little less than three years to a verbally abusive man, left him and when I went back to Maysville to visit my mother, Sheila was on my mind. Don't quote me on all the details, I think the year may have been around 2001 or 2002, but I somehow got ahold of her and talked to her forever on the phone....anyway to make a long story short, she started telling me all the hell she had been going through with Tyson. I was shocked but so glad she was not with him anymore. I saw her around this time as well, that was probably the last time I saw her. This precious lady needs to have justice, for all of her family....and the two children that she left behind.

MaysvilleWarrior,

Great to see someone else on here who calls themself a Maysville Warrior. Welcome to websleuths although I am mostly a lurker who just reads and reads, rarely posts. You do have something to contribute. You knew Sheila and her friends. Maybe you can recall any of the specific things that she said to you about the abuse. Most people will tell friends the truth and make excuses to the family about what really is going on. Or maybe you can get in touch with some people that still live in Maysville and see if they remember anything about this case. This case is being hushed up and what needs to happen is for people to get talking and get mad and demand justice. I love my home town but I am so angry that Garvin County LE have done nothing to get to the truth of this matter.

Are there any links with visual aids someone can list?
The OSBI are very tight lipped about there unsolved cases from my experience.
The grand jury did not indict due to viewing soft evidence and nothing hard for them to hand down indictments on this case, though i am only speculating on that.

Why are some of Sheilas children/ family on her FB page complaining this is all BS and they wish we would all just mind our business and go away? Don't they want the person who did this to her punished???? I understand being under a microscope is difficult when something like this happens to your family member, but for Pete's sake, Justice has to be done!!! This woman was burned to death, for all we know. A horrible way to die, you would think her family would be championing for Sheila any way they could....JMO I don't understand.....

The complaining is by her daughter. She was 9 when her mother was murdered. She also lives with her father ad has for the last 6 years I think. It wasn't immediately ruled a homicide it was ruled accidental death and after 9 months, Sheila's parents were able to get it ruled correctly as a homicide. I don't think Sheila's daughter knows all of the facts or if the "facts" she knows are different than the truth KWIM.....I feel for the young lady. I think that most kids would find it difficult to be in her position. Also I think that Sheila's daughter was 2 when they divorced. Highly unlikely that she remembers much of what Sheila went through during the marriage. It also possible that she wasn't aware of all of the fighting over custody and especially the child support money. She doesn't know and I don't think she wants to either. Hope this helps a little.

Thank God for the local businesses that have raised $50,000.00 reward for info about Sheila.

Sounds to me like Sheilas ex husbands current wife might be divorcing him, nut they weren't specific. She might turn him in and like they said, $50,000.00 is a good nest egg to start over with!

On the radio show last night the hosts commented on the very posts you are asking about. They and Sheila's parents do not think these comments are from Sheila's daughter. That it was sad attempt to get a message across to the Devineys using the daughters fb account. The reasoning was all because of the bad grammar and spelling. I am on the fence and will lean more to that it was her daughter. It is cool to spell words like phone as fone etc...they get it from the text craze that all kids her age are affected by. It is simpler to spell type any word and also cool to change the way it lookz. My niece always sez kewl! She is the same age as Sheila's daughter. I don't think for one sec my niece thinks that cool is spelled KEWL...she is just apart of that generaZion.

Living in OK after being away for 14 yrs...and wondering why the hell I came back sometimes. The good ol' boy crap never changes. I lived in Lawton in 1986 when a coed at Cameron University gave birth & killed the baby with the help of her softball team. She was found guilty & then freed after serving 76 days. I kid you not. Her daddy was a hotshot with the local pols so Kandi (I believe her name was Kandi Smith) was sprung. The killing happened on or about 9/17/86 but good luck finding anything about it in the media. I only know because I was visited by OSBI because I was 9 mos pregnant at the time & seen in the same dorm the day before visiting my sister.

My prayer for all of the families involved is that someone finds the bravery to step forward & put an end to their pain...but I'm not holding my breath.

I would like to say I am shocked and part of me still is that this happened and she only served 76 days. Wow. How does one get people to help in a thing like that???? And then never tell?? What a sad sad tale.
I have a lot of faith that the people of Garvin County are fed up with this good ole boy system and vote accordingly. We'll see shortly.

Garvin County officially has a NEW COUNTY SHERRIF; Larry Rhodes. He has committed to reopen AND actively investigate Sheila's case along with a few other suspicious deaths in Garvin County. Great news and great timing. Today would have been Sheila's 37th Birthday.

I love the quote from the Eleventh Commandment website "thou shalt not get away with it!!..."
The audacity of locals perpetuating these types haneous acts on women, mothers...victimizing them and then they just go on with their lives as if they are somehow immune to the rules of law.

Last week's radio show was very good. To echo Susan's words...'I hope these folks have lawyer'd up" and I also enjoyed "they should enjoy the holidays with their families" may not be word for word, but very good to hear that she is not fuzzy in her message directed at these criminals.

snipped from the Pauls Valley Daily Democrat Feb 2010
“We reviewed the Chandra Turner, Sheila Deviney and Garvin County Sheriff’s Office seizure of starving horses in Garvin County.

“While we have empathy for their loss, we decline to further investigate those cases.”

really???!!?! they heard the facts of Sheila's case and declined to further investigate?? What am I missing? I'll bet they were each glad it wasn't their daughter. No smoke in her lungs, ignitable fluid found on cloth and carpet near her body, reports of domestic abuse, scheduled court appearance for the follwing day in a bitter battle for child support, reports from friends and family that she feared for her life....naaah lets not pursue it. Did they hear THAT evidence??
Soooo confused about this..

very confusing. every time i read one of these unsolved cases from oklahoma i get angry. i was raised in okla and lived there most of my life. something happened to me many years ago that left me very untrustful of law enforcement there. i was driving my sisters car and i got stopped for speeding. it was a bad tag so he had me get out and looked around in the car. he found an empty cig box with a tiny piece of a pot joint inside. he told me that he was going to arrest me. i figured i would call my sister down to explain it all and it would be fine. then he started telling me how we could "negotiate" and maybe he would not have to arrest me. i took a huge chance, but he was really young and stupid so i got away with it. i just jumped in my car and drove to the police station and he followed me. after i told what happened to the officer on duty at the station, he told me to just go on home and dont worry about it, i wasnt charged with anything, not even the speeding which i admitted to. it is not safe in oklahoma right now. the lack of effective law enforcement and the escalating drug epidemic makes it a very scary place.

This case is quite intriguing

If someone knows an answer on the following questions, It would be greatly appreciated:
-Was Sheila's family doing bad financially?
-Was the fire started internally or externally?
-Was their any traces of her being tied up or any of the sort?
-Was their any traces of accelerants upon the face?

Thanks

Sheila was a single mother of two children. She had $12.00 in her checking account at the time of her death. Yes, she was struggling financially.

Fire was internal. With more than one point of origin

I have not heard or read anything about her being tied up but something made her not able to run from the fire. Nothing ever explained about that.

The following is a quote from Sheila's page.

third was started on Sheila by way of flammable fluids splashed around her and clothing packed tight against her to make her a human torch. She was alive when the flames engulfed her.

In case you haven't seen this yet I have linked her story here.

I have been following this and the other Oklahoma Cases since the beginning, but haven't posted on this thread before.

Just wanted to say, having grown up in Southeastern Oklahoma (Madill); this case really hits home for me and I am constant in my prayers for Sheila's family, friends and loved ones and have NO doubt that they, along with WSers will not stop until justice is served.

Since first going to Sheila's website and looking at the photos of her, I've been trying to figure out where I "know" of her from...in fact, over the Thanksgiving holiday, I showed her site to my sisters and parents and even asked them, if she looked familiar to them, thinking maybe it was from high school days or even my MSC days; But, I don't think that's it, considering our age difference.

It still hasn't come to me yet, although I did recognize one of her friends in a picture with her and (same friend) with Sheila's mother in a newspaper article; who I went to HS with, but haven't seen in years.

Anyway, just wanted to post in this thread to show my support and offer my prayers and condolences as we await justice for Sheila!

Hullo! very suggestive indeed.

As for the third one, you don't suppose that the killer and sheila stayed in there until the place have burned down? -More likely not, don't you agree? (and seeing that there was more than one point of origin and considering the fact that it was a mobile home it must have burned quickly.)

My next questions are:
-Was there any adjacent houses around the area of incident?
-What is the kind of ground around sheila's house? (mud? pave?)

Your answers indeed helped shed some light.

EDIT: edited "less" to "more" - You must excuse me for such trifles as I was really about to say "Highly unlikely" but made a typo (less likely) because I got all jumbled up in the midst of thinking about your answers and typing my reply.

Yes..her trailer was on and adjacent to her parents home...as far as the ground??? I know they must have lived very near the river...as it was reported that her ex and friends pushed what was left of the burnt trailer into the river with out asking or getting permission to do so. The ex had a restrainging order...

-Was the parents' house the only house adjacent to the area?
-Was the parents home at the time of incident?

What we can safely deduce for now is the killer whoever that may be as much as possible doesn't want the kids to be involve in this unfortunate event.

EDIT: Are you really certain that they lived near a river? cause we cant just assume facts, we need precise facts cause conclusions would be faulty without it.

I am curious also about 'HOW' Sheila was subdued. According to the reports; which conclude Arson & Homicide - and Sheila's website - Sheila must have been knocked unconscious or something of this nature. She was alive when the fire engulfed her. She was not found in a position suggesting she was trying to escape from her burning home. She was on her back in the 'Jesus position' or posed. Accelerants were on her body and the fabric packed around her.

Sheila's mother stated during one of her radio interviews that she was told there was NO SMOKE in Sheila's lungs shortly after the fire. This screams homicide - you have to be breathing to inhale smoke. But - there seems to be evidence that she was in fact alive...just somehow subdued.

I'm very curious to hear anyone else's thoughts on this issue.

Justice for Sheila!
