    Cops Release 911 Tape In Murder Of 2 Girls

    ..............................snip................ ......


    Several motives have been explored, including a random thrill killing, attempted abduction, a case of mistaken identity and the possibility that the girls happened upon a crime in progress.

    Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Agent Ben Rosser has said officials suspect a local person was involved because the killings occurred in such an isolated area. Rosser said that nothing is being ruled out but that there is no indication family or friends were involved.

    Two Weleetka girls will not be going back to school Thursday, but their classmates plan to keep their memory alive.

    13-year old Taylor Placker and 11-year old Skyla Whitacker were found shot to death on a rural road near Weleetka.

    It happened about two months ago.

    Students, faculty, and staff at Graham Elementary School will wear bracelet's in purple and green, the girls favorite colors.

    A plaque donated by their families will also help keep their memory strong.

    Taylor's father will have her cheerleading uniform framed, and hopes that everyone will keep searching for clues in the case.

    Investigation one of the most intensive in OSBI history .8-10-08

    Posted by: SeriouslySearching

    The investigation is one of the most intensive in the agency's history.

    OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has so far spent more than 10,000 man hours investigating the June slayings of two young girls near Weleetka.

    And those hours, according to OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown, don't include the untiring efforts of federal agents, sheriff's deputies and the Oklahoma Highway Patrol working the case.

    Given the hundreds of leads tracked and scores of people questioned in the Weleetka murders, Brown said this case is among the most intensive investigations ever handled by the OSBI.

    Authorities Test Fire Guns 08-18-08

    Posted by Cloudajo: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...=68950&page=16

    WELEETKA — More than three dozen guns from the Weleetka area were test fired over the weekend as authorities worked to narrow their leads into the June 8 slayings of two girls north of town.

    Jessica Brown, spokeswoman for the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, said some 60 letters were sent out to registered owners of .40-caliber handguns, asking them to voluntarily submit their weapons for testing on Saturday and Sunday at the Okfuskee County Courthouse at Okemah.

    Brown said 40 of those owners showed up with their guns, which were fired outside the courthouse.

    She said about five owners contacted the OSBI to say they no longer owned the weapons, although they did provide the names of the new owners.

    “We’ll be checking on them,” Brown said, as well as the 15 or so registered gun owners who did not show up for the test firings.

    The fact that the OSBI is looking for a .40-cailber handgun is the newest revelation into the murders of Skyla Jade Whitaker, 11, and Taylor Paschal-Placker, 13.

    Both were shot several times and left for dead on County Line Road, about four miles northeast of Weleetka.

    Gun owners got letters - Tulsa World, Aug 20

    OSBI agents went to gun dealers and pawnshops to create a list of .40-caliber Glock owners.

    WELEETKA — Authorities working to narrow their leads in the June 8 shooting deaths of two girls used old-fashioned legwork to come up with a list of area gun owners with .40-caliber pistols, one of two weapons used in the slayings.

    Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents knew the caliber of the guns used in the killings, so they merely checked with area gun dealers and pawnshops to determine who had bought or recently pawned .40-caliber Glocks.

    "It's a typical procedure of any investigation" involving a gun, according to Jessica Brown, spokeswoman for the OSBI.

    "It's a process of elimination," she said, noting that the tested weapons may have been loaned out by the owners or someone else may have had access to the guns.

    Men questioned by multicounty grand jury in Weleetka girls' slayings

    By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
    9/4/2008 12:15 AM


    OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Three men who have come under suspicion in the fatal shootings of two Weleetka girls testified Wednesday before the multicounty grand jury, according to a published report.

    “I just wish they would catch whoever done it so they would leave me alone,” one witness, Toney Kelough, told The Oklahoman in a story for Thursday editions. “I’ve told them the same thing over and over again.”

    Kelough, 30, who is scheduled to return for testimony on Thursday, was questioned along with 18-year-old Dustyn Dailey and Mike Gaddy, 19, about the June 8 shootings of Skyla Whitaker, 11, and Taylor Paschal-Placker, 13, The Oklahoman reported.

    UPDATE: 2 more witnesses appear before grand jury in Weleetka shootings

    Thu September 4, 2008

    A man and woman believed to be witnesses in the fatal shootings of two Weleetka girls arrived at the Oklahoma County Courthouse at 11:30 a.m.

    Wearing shackles, the pair was escorted under guard to the second day of multicounty grand jury proceedings on the case.

    They are the fourth and fifth witnesses to testify on the matter before the grand jury. Three other men who are under suspicion in the fatal shooting of 13-year-old Taylor Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker testified Wednesday.

    On Wednesday, the grand jury heard testimony from Dustyn Dailey, 18; Mike Gaddy, 19; and Toney Kelough, 30. Kelough, who said he was with his girlfriend at the time of the shootings, returned Thursday morning for about an hour before the grand jury. He had no further comment after telling The Oklahoman Wednesday that he had nothing to do with the shootings.
