Prosecutor's office 'assisting' in May search
By Shane Farley
February 9, 2010 - 7:06:47 pm
The Cowley County Attorney's office is “assisting” the Winfield Police Dept. in the search for missing local resident Richard May, county attorney Chris Smith said.
While this would seem to indicate that investigators believe there is a criminal element involved in May's disappearance, both Smith and Winfield chief Danny Parker said the investigation remains a missing person case.
“This (case) is a priority for the police department and my office,” Smith said. “But right now it's a disappearance case, that hasn't changed.”

Winfield's "harmonica man" is most likely dead — and he may be the victim of a homicide, authorities said Tuesday.
Richard D. May, 77, was last seen Dec. 10 in Pawhuska, Okla. Winfield Police Chief Danny Parker said Tuesday that May's van was found several miles inside the Oklahoma Tallgrass Prairie Preserve north of Pawhuska last week by ranchers burning off the grass.
May was not found, despite an extensive search of the preserve near the van.
"It's a very remote area," Parker said. "It's very difficult to get there with a regular vehicle."

Winfield Police have a person of interest they believe may have something to do with the December disappearance of Richard D. May, NewsCow has confirmed.
On Wednesday, as he had done at a press conference Tuesday, police chief Danny Parker declined to comment about possible suspects or persons of interest. May's van was found Friday north of Pawhuska, Okla. and though May is still missing, he's presumed dead.
“It's going to take time just to process the van, we're trying to collect fingerprint and DNA evidence,” Parker said. “So at this time we don't have enough to charge anyone with anything.”
