    http://www.koco.com/video/18484297/index.html

    Lowe has been charged with 16 counts of sexually assaulting girls.

    The church is located just a mile from where Skyla Whitaker and Taylor Paschal Placker were found slain in June, but Brown said there's no indication yet that the cases are connected or that the slain girls had been sexually assaulted

    "The scene of the homicides is quite close to this church so that gives us cause and makes us want to investigate if there is any type of connection," she said.

    Brown said a bodily fluid found at the Weleetka homicide scene should help them determine a possible link.

    Lowe was one of many people in the immediate area who the Okfuskee County Sheriff interviewed last summer.

    I find it hard to comprehend that this minister had anything to do with shooting our girls. That's not to say he didn't do it, I'm glad they are checking all possibilities. He has been charged with 16 counts of sexual crimes against girls, yet didn't shoot any of them. What could Skyla & Taylor possibly have seen/threatened him with, that these other girls couldn't have? Yet, he didn't shoot them.

    Justice for Skyla & Taylor; BFF

    I would also like to state that there's no indication yet that the cases are connected and

    Weleetka Pastor Faces Lewdness Charges

    WELEETKA, OK -- The pastor of a church in Okfuskee County is jailed, charged with molesting several young girls in his church. Investigators say most of the abuse happened on the grounds of the Arbeka Indian Baptist Church just outside the town of Weleetka.
    Arbeka Indian Baptist Church sits in the countryside of Okfuskee County. The church property acts as a campground, of sorts. Church members drive from as far away as Oklahoma City or Tulsa for services that last several days. The grounds have several living quarters where the congregation stays the night.
    For the last several years Marvin Lowe has been the church's pastor. Investigators say the 51 year old has been molesting girls as young as eight years old on the property since at least the summer of 2007.

    Sheriff Jack Choate says Lowe also molested girls in his Okmulgee County home.
    "Some have known it for some time and were just, more or less, afraid to bring it up," said Okfuskee County Sheriff Jack Choate.
    Court documents show Lowe would sometimes sleep with the girls on the floor of his home. In other cases, he's accused of fondling the girls inside the fellowship hall.
    Investigators say they're also aware of a 32-year-old victim who says Lowe assaulted her when she was a teenager.
    "I do think there's a possibility that we do have other people who have not come forward yet," said Okfuskee County Sheriff Jack Choate.
    The church sits a mile and a-half from where Skyla Whitaker and Taylor Placker were found dead last year, no one has been arrested for their deaths. While the sheriff doesn't believe Lowe was involved, it's something investigators are still looking into.
    "We're not saying that he is part of that or was. But, we want to definitely verify that he was not a part of it," said Okfuskee County Sheriff Jack Choate.
    Lowe is being held on $240,000 bond. The sheriff expects him to face more charges as more people come forward in the future.

    They are STILL testing bodily fluids found at the murder scene???????

    My gosh, how many months have they had to test it in already? That's unreal. Did it have to be sent to outer space for testing? The citizens of that town should be so up in arms with all of these terrible things happening to young girls.

    Getsmart,
    Is there any way you could put the preacher and the sketch that Bern did side by side?

    Hi GS -- I think Bern's drawing closely resembles the minister. I only wish we could see the mouth.

    Maybe he had molested them previously and they confronted him that day and told him they were going to report him to LE.
