    OK - Jack 'Vince' Purselley, 39, murdered, Sequoyah County, 25 July 2011

    Just your typical case - alleged rape, actual murder, "federal marshals,"
    alleged kidnapping, actual body found with multiple gunshot wounds:

    Man's body found in Sequoyah County
    SALLISAW — A man's body was found in rural Sequoyah County after his wife showed up in Arizona and told police her husband had been shot, and she was kidnapped and raped by men claiming to be federal marshals.
    ---
    The woman told police in Arizona that a man calling himself a U.S. marshal appeared at their home on Monday and said he was there to arrest Jack Purselley [whose body was found yesterday].

    “We don't think it was a random killing,” Lockhart said.

    I wonder if the wife could be lying?

    “She told us she was at the house with the husband, and there was a knock on the door,” Lockhart said. “There was a guy there who said he was a U.S. marshal and he showed her a marshal’s badge. Then, they barged in and had guns. One guy told the other guy, ‘Go ahead and shoot him.’”

    The Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Department learned of the possible homicide in rural Sequoyah County north of Gans on County Road 4670, at about 8:45 Wednesday morning. Inside, they found the body of 39-year-old Jack Purselley.

    Sounds fishy. She ended up back in Arizona, where they came from. I wonder if she knows them.

    according to the report, the couple had only been in the area about a month, so apparently they weren't locals. i have a feeling there is much more to this story. i know that particular area is not densely populated but it is likely that somebody saw an unfamiliar vehicle on the road. even so, finding a neighbor who wants to talk about it will be like pulling teeth. jmo, mho, moo and all that jazz

    wife now says she was not raped or kidnapped, investigators seem to be getting to the truth of what happened, and the truth appears to be she may be involved with the murder of her husband, we shall have to wait to see what (if any) charges are brought in the future

    "O my prophetic soul," as Hamlet says. Just seemed very possibly to be the case.

    Her story was strikingly bizarre - or "hinky," in WS terms. Indeed, we shall see.

    why am I not surprised?

    I'm hoping the truth will continue to come out.

    Two Arrested for Murder in Sequoyah County

    William Douglas Daniel, 52, of Sequoyah County, and Craig Hart 54, of Vian, have been arrested for first degree murder. They are accused of killing of 38-year-old Jack Purselley, according to Sheriff Ron Lockhart
    Purselley and his wife had only lived in Oklahoma for about a month. Lockhart says the two moved to the area to raise horses.
    wonder what the motive was?

    The woman told authorities that she and Purselley, 39, were inside of their home in the Central High area, between Sallisaw and Muldrow, in the northern part of the county, when they heard a knock at the door. The woman said she answered the door and a man presented a badge and claimed to be a U.S. marshal, saying he was there to arrest Jack Purselley.

    The woman told authorities that as soon as she let the man inside, two other men rushed in and gunned down Purselley.

    Lockhart said Hart is the suspect that posed as a U.S. marshal and was able to get into the Purselley home.
