    Bumping this one because it should never be forgotten.

    (Also, sweetheart29 has graced WS with a new link ["What is going on in southeastern Oklahoma"] which includes a variety of unsolved cases, including Weleetka [and others in SE OK and across the state]. The number of fairly recent, unsolved cases here is mind-boggling: this one, the Denney and Huls double homicides, Joe Neff and Jody Rilee-Wilson, the missing Jamison family, et al.)

    Okay, I get nervous when a few weeks pass and no comments appear for Taylor and Skyla. So....BUMP! This case can be solved. LE needs to solve it.

    Let's not forget the bizarre murder of Carol Daniels. The 61 yo pastor that was murdered in her church on a Sunday morning. She lived in Oklahoma City and drove every weekend to Anadarko, OK. I can not believe that crime remains unsolved.

    The Rev. Carol Daniels, 61, was found dead in an Anadarko church, Sunday, Aug. 23. Daniels, a pastor from Oklahoma City, traveled to Anadarko every other Sunday to preach. The district attorney involved in the case called it "horrific."

    Amen. Just gave that thread a bump, and here's another for this one.

    Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation forms new cold case unit to find DNA evidence

    Wow, it sounds like we in Oklahoma just discovered the wonders of DNA. But....

    "Some cases the unit will examine are from the 1970s, but some are just a few years old, Perkinson said. The OSBI does not consider recent high-profile cases such as the fatal shootings of Taylor Paschal-Placker, 13, and Skyla Whitaker, 11, near Weleetka in 2008 and the August slaying of pastor Carol Daniels in Anadarko to be cold, because investigators still have leads to follow."

    Well, this means they're still---apparently---following leads.

    I am so tired of the OSBI stating they are still following leads in regards to Taylor and Skyla.

    However, I am thankful there is a cold case unit being established. I wonder if the CC Unit will look at the Locust Grove Girl Scout murders?

    Couldn't agree with you more; OSBI's reputation at this point is like the punchline to a bad joke.

    Locust Grove was the first case that sprang to my mind, as there should have been a huge amount of physical evidence collected at the camp. I wonder if it's been saved, though. LE was so sure Gene Leroy Hart did it that they may have just tossed it all after the trial.* (For those unfamiliar with the case, here's a good short account: [ame]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oklahoma_Girl_Scout_Murders[/ame])

    *"Thirty years later authorities conducted new DNA testing, but the results of these proved inconclusive, as the samples were too old."

    I'm hoping that OK media do some stories over the holidays about Taylor and Skyla. Not holding my breath, you understand. But, frequently, they'll do some human interest-type things.

    All crimes against children are horrific and always, always sad.. I'm so glad that you have pushed this as I know as with other cases this should not be forgotten or left to collect dust. I like everyone else here totally agree with you.
    I have read on a few other forums people debating this case, one in particular forum seemed to have the girls family members and I can only presume locals that live in the area getting into heated and pretty nasty 'debate'. It got all too personal, they seemed to forget that it was not about them and their personal issues.

    How can such a small community not notice anything? Everyone knows everyones business and yet such a tragedy to occur and they know nothing.

    Wfgodot - it is wonderful that people like you make sure cases like this are not lost and forgotten, that you remind us this is not just a 'case' but a tragedy which involves two beautiful, innocent children, who once had dreams, who had just started to venture into life.... Thankyou

    Thanks much, Nikki 2. How can a small community not notice anything? Well, I think several of them probably have. But Oklahoma's a strange place. Lots of great people, yes, but....well, to quote myself from another OK case thread, "It is a state in which favors and past agreements govern an abundance of situations, no matter the seriousness of the activity involved." And that type of secrecy can cross the line between civilians and LE, and some cases never get solved because of it.

    Wfgodot - You are right and your quote sums that up perfectly, but I still wish to believe, I have to believe that somewhere, someone will shine and come out of their conformed narrowminded ways and speak out.

    Me too. I was living down in San Antonio when I first heard about the case, right after it happened. I'd lived in OK for ten years (and now I'm back), and the horrid thought dawned on me that this would never be solved, just like the Locust Grove murders in 1977---they tried a Native American for that one and he was found not guilty; in the case of the Weleetka girls, LE released the drawing of the Native man who evidently had been near the scene, a person of interest. It was deja vu. I really lost hope then, but hope is all we have, and I hope this case is resolved, and soon. It makes me very, very angry. It can be solved, but will it?

    Hope I am allowed to post this here. Thought you might find it interesting. According to the charts, 3 people were involved and they were looking for a "thrill kill". Sounds sick, I know. Maybe it will help move the investigation in the right direction.
    I posted this before and I am posting it again.

    With the motive in the recent Elizabeth Olten case being released as a "thrill kill", maybe, just maybe, the astros are pointing in the right direction here. Like everyone else here, I just want this cased solved.

    Gossip?

    Ok.... I want to relate some things that I have read, I'm sure some of you have come across this so if I read all over the place someone jump in and help me out.

    If you look at the Weleetka Forum, ( which has 1000's of posts in re: to the two girls) there was one person in particular ( probably family member ) who wrote that she received a link from someone who did not wish to be identified, ( okokmulgee.jailsoftware.com) - (sorry I am not a genius with pc's to highlight direct links) the link contained a mugshot of a Rickey Luellen, arrested 22.09.2009 - Who is this person and does anyone know why he was a suspect in this case? Anyway this person then goes to write that she knew this person for certain had nothing to do with the children etc...

    I just thought that this forum was interesting, ( if you can wade through the nasty and timewasting posts, there are things that could be seen as useful, or just my wishful thinking)

    There is a person that goes by the username of NurseJ, her posts seem to give the impression that she knows more than she lets on, ( she is also the one that put that mugshot in) her posts were pretty angry, and I guess I did the emotional thing by telling her ( that was & is my only post on that site ), well she really let me have it ( I am down on their site as from Sydney Austr) As much as I am passionate in my feelings and thoughts in regards to crime , my aim is not to offend, argue or belittle anyone on any site in regards to their opinion.

    Too much personal bickering going on on that site, but there are things that are there and someone who knows that area would probably be able to clue in on all of this.

    I got a personal message from 'J' which only said to go to the Weeletka Forum in re to 'Jimpsy" that I should read the posts there as there is some 'love triange' - I don't know how much any of those posts there had to do with this case, but one thing that caught my eye was someone who was looking for someone with a ' white truck' ( she mentioned his name too)
    Was not a truck somehow involved?

    I apologise to everyone here, I know this post seems a mess, if someone has read these WF posts and seen those links you will have a better understanding of what I am actually 'trying' to say here. Would appreciate any feedback, especially in re" to the photo of Ricky Luellen and the 'white truck'.

    If someone has the time and patience to go through the mounds of posts there, and if you are near that area, you would be able to make so much better sense of it all.

    Thanks everyone
