    OK - Sheila Deviney, killed in trailer fire in Maysville, Jan 2004

    This is a young woman from my home town. I knew her family but as she was years younger than me I only knew who she was. She died in a house fire AFTER she took her kids to school. Later, LE released that the fire was set intentionally with acclerants and were even on her clothes. She had told friends/family that she knew someone was following her in the days before. She was also going through a custody battle with ex husband. This was in 2004 and all I planned to do was link the cold case here BUT I can't even find a link ANYWHERE. I can't even find her obituary....I feel like I must be crazy but did find this:

    Jan 6,2004 Shelia has passed away .Jan 6th,after taking her children to school she returned home when something terrible happened.A fire in her mobile home took her life still unsure what happened.It is so sad that her babies will have to grow up with out there mommy.Please keep her babies and family in prayer.She is loved and will be missed by all who knew her.



    This is on classmates and I remembered seeing it back in 2004. How does a cold case become non-existent??? It is not on OSBI...I looked. It is not on FBI either. I would know if this crime was solved. Can anyone explain how someone who died tragically and that I KNOW was SUSPICIOUS and you can't even google it?

    TIA!

    I need to add that her married name was Hendrix. But I think she returned to her maiden name after divorce.

    One possibility is a judge issuing an injunction banning anything from the case be published at the request of a concerned party but that is quite unusual and the ban would not typically apply outside the state, which I assume is Texas in this case, unless issued by a federal circuit judge, but I don't how this suspicious death matter would be under federal jurisdiction. It's intriguing indeed.

    Thank you for finding this. I thought I searched the Democrat but didn't get anything. I really didn't know this young lady. I knew her ex-husband. I worked with him for maybe a year while he was still in high school. And I know they were in a battle for custody of the children during the time of her death. I don't like that. I hope they don't give up on this case.

    Thank you all for looking for any info for me.

    You're very welcome. I know all too well what's it like, remembering a few details of a case but not being able to find any info. That's what got the ball rolling on the 'Missing in WV/Sodder Family' case. Sometimes all we can do is put out what little info we have and hope someone can come up with something.

    Intimate Partner Homicide Investigation the Sheila Deviney Murder Case

    Tonight's topic is the case of Sheila Deviney.

    On January 6, 2004, the burned body of Sheila Deviney was discovered. In 2006, after a grand jury investigation her death was changed from "accidental" to homicide. According to the State Fire Investigators report several fires were started in various locations within the home.

    The day before the fire Sheila Deviney was in family court with her former husband Tyson Hendrix. Between orders of protection, verbal threats of murder, warrants for failure to pay child support and custody of the children, the motive points to only one person.


    Show starts at 9:00 PM Eastern. You can listen HERE!

    Websleuths is the very proud sponsor of the Intimate Partner Homicide Investigations Radio Show.


    After the show we will be discussing Sheila's case right here

    Also, if I were reading the link in my previous post and not knowing different, I would assume that he played football for OU. He went to Cameron University in Lawton, OK. Not saying that he wasn't a star in that university (small 5000 students) but not a huge football star by OK standards. JMO

    This case is unbelievable! If you didn't get a chance to listen to the show live, please take an hour and listen to this! It's heartbreaking to hear the family and friends tell of this crime.

    Sheila Deviney and her children deserve justice!

    My jaw is on the floor listening to this case.

    We need to ask the family to join too and see if we can get some of those documents up on the forum.

    Absolutely shocking and unreal. I hope this cold case is unlocked and solved and the POS who did this to her is put away for a good long time.

    Wonder how he treats the woman he is with now? You'de think she would be scared witless!!!
