    OK - Joannie Goodwin, 18, Pawhuska, 22 Sept 1996

    Son Taking on Mother's Cold Case

    A teenage boy is taking on his mother's cold case. Almost 15 years ago 18 year old Joannie Goodwin went missing in Pawhuska. Now her son has had enough and wants answers.

    15 year old Bobby N. is a normal teenage boy. He has a girlfriend, he plays basketball and he can't wait to get his driver's license. With all that being said, he is the child of a cold case.

    Now he's ready to solve his mother's murder.

    SNIPPED........................................... ...........

    "Her body was disposed of in a creek they found her in a blouse and she was bound by wire," says Bobby.

    Goodwin went missing on September 22, 1996 her body was found in Bird Creek a week later. She had multiple shotgun wounds and was tied up by barbed wire. Through the 14 years there have been many persons of interest and tips, but no solid evidence

    Osage County Teen On A Mission To Find His Mother's Killer
    Posted: Mar 09, 2011 7:29 PM MST
    Updated: Mar 10, 2011 7:07 AM MST


    OSAGE COUNTY -- A cold case in Osage County is getting a fresh perspective from the victim's child.

    Bobby N. was only seven months old when his mother was murdered in Pawhuska in 1996.

    "I think the least I deserve is the truth," Neighbors said.

    Bobby N. can't talk to his mother, Joannie Goodwin, anymore.

    "I have never even had the chance to tell my mom I love her," he said.

    He's reaching out to her killer instead.

    "You took my mom's life over 14 years ago and everything we could have been together," he said.

    Teen searching for mom’s killer: Son using technology to seek answers to ’96 murder
    By Mike Erwin Pawhuska Journal-Capital
    Thursday, March 17, 2011 11:41 AM CDT


    PAWHUSKA — A 15-year-old Osage County homicide is back in the news as a result of efforts by the victim’s teenage son to find answers about the murder of his mother — a woman whom he was deprived of the opportunity of ever getting to know.

    Bobby N., who is now a high school freshman, was only 7 months old when his mother, Joannie Ann Goodwin, was brutally slain and her body dumped into Bird Creek in September 1996.

    The 15-year-old Wynona High School student has an inquisitive nature which includes the burning desire to know answers about the heinous crime which long ago robbed him of the woman who gave him life.

    Oh good here a little more information regarding what happened the day she disappeared:

    SNIPPED........................................... ........

    Goodwin had been out with two young men the night she vanished on Sept. 22, when a rally had drawn thousands of bikers to Pawhuska.

    The truck in which the three had been riding broke down, and the men went to find jumper cables, said Osage County Sheriff Ty Koch. While they were gone, Goodwin got out and started walking. She was not seen alive again, except by her killer or killers.

    This article has much of the same information from the other articles, but the bold below caught my eye:

    Snipped........................................... ..................................................


    PAWHUSKA - On Sept. 29, 1996, two men checking fishing lines made a gruesome discovery in Bird Creek northwest of Pawhuska's water and light plant: a young woman, tied with electrical wire, weighted down with tile blocks, tied to a tree and shot in the stomach

    Seems like whomever did this had quite a bit of time and access to several things to do this. Someone local ?

    .................................................. .................................................. ...

    Goodwin had been out with two young men the night she vanished on Sept. 22, when a rally had drawn thousands of bikers to Pawhuska.

    The truck in which the three had been riding broke down, and the men went to find jumper cables, said Osage County Sheriff Ty Koch. While they were gone, Goodwin got out and started walking. She was not seen alive again, except by her killer or killers.

    I would like to know who these two young men were and if they were ever considered suspects ? And who told LE that she got out and started walking if these two men had already left for jumper cables, The jolly green giant ?

    .................................................. ............................................

    One other thing that irks me, though comes as no suprise from this article, is that Koch the sherriff has been waiting on analysis of physical evidence sent to, guess who, OSBI for this case since 2008 ! Really, OSBI needs to pull their head out or find the money to catch up their backlog of cases, they are horrible imho, seems many cases are waiting on them and by many I mean hundreds.

    From the comments below in this article, (Janet 8:13 AM Mar 10) talks about remembering about this murder and that there was another murder that happened around the same time in the same county that was never solved, rumors were flying at the time it was believed to be the same person who commited both murders, fwiw:

    This young man story touches my heart. It's admirable he doesn't want revenge, just answers. His mom would be so proud of him!

    Saw this story at my doctors office- has anyone found the facebook page?
    He should have a public page set up; I think I found his profile but it's locked pretty tight.

    I apologize if this isn't allowed since it's a blog, but it's written by someone who said she was Joannie's best friend.


    http://www.tulsaworld.com/article.as...2_cutlin456721

    On Facebook, he created a page in his mother's name, Joannie Goodwin, and uses it to address her killer. In a month, it has attracted about 600 followers and dozens of comments and recollections from friends of Goodwin's.
    Reading this breaks my heart. That poor boy . I hope he finds answers one day.
