    Nan,
    I think this a very good possibility! Unfortunate and sad, that children cannot walk anywhere anymore, even in remote areas!

    It is so hard to wait. I am afraid I am not very patient today. It sounds like they are only going to announce the reward being offered and partial autopsy results, but I hope I am wrong.

    Investigators say they have a person of interest, but so far no arrests have been made in connection with the slayings. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation this morning announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for the shootings.

    Investigators have scheduled a 2 p.m. news conference today at the Okfuskee County Courthouse in Okemah.

    Autopsies performed Monday on the girls show that they had been shot in the head and chest, said Kevin Rowland, chief medical examiner. Rowland did not release any other details. The girls were found wearing T-shirts and shorts.

    Thanks, SQ, for this information. I hope they'll broadcast this on one of the cable news shows. Does anyone know if they will?

    I don't believe this! I called our main local tv stations and none are going to carry the presser live! WTH?!?! I let them know what I thought about that, too! They don't have live feeds either. They said they would have coverage on their evening news. GRRRRRR~

    Girls left Taylors house at 5pm and they were located at 5:30. This happened very fast.

    Did anyone else notice that both girls were the only girl in their class at school?

    Yeah, the live news conference really didn't tell us anything we don't already know. They are going to run this case on America's Most Wanted on Saturday. It almost sounds like the media was running with the story that there is a potential suspect or POI but from what the sherriff was saying, they don't have any leads. Did any of you get that as well?

    Yeah, definitely. Let's hope they hurry things along - they could be losing ground.

    Sounds like they did stumble across something illegal going on out there.

    Thanks for giving media a piece of your (our!) mind, SS. I can't believe this case doesn't have a suspect right now. Surely someone is acting very strange in that small town.

    I will pray this case doesn't turn cold like so many others here.

    Amen and how.

    What a tragedy.

    It ticks me off that OSBI or someone is backpedaling from what the Sheriff's Deputy said yesterday about having a suspect. Either they do or they don't...someone is mistaken in LE and here I was talking so good about them n all. (shaking my head)

    Lets all pray that doesn't happen TM. What a horrible thing to happen, what kind of a monster could murder two little girls this way? I have a feeling in their walk they may have seen something illegal going on.

    Fresh tire tracks made a U-turn where the girls' bodies were. Investigators said they found other evidence that helped them identify a "person of interest.
    Humm Would like to know what the other evidence is.


    From post 48:
    "We believe this person may have known these two girls,"

    Perhaps shell casings? Or footprints? Just guessing.
