    OK - Emmalee Thornhill, 7 mos, suspicious death, 25 Feb 2012

    Pawnee County - Oklahoma

    Emmalee Thornhill's father called 911 Saturday night to report the baby was unresponsive.


    Investigators have not said what led them to call the girl's death suspicious.


    They say several kids, including a baby, lived there, but they are unclear as to how many adults were in the home at the time.


    So far agents have interviewed both parents, but they aren't saying what happened - only that it is suspicious.


    The OSBI is waiting on the medical examiners report to determine how Emmalee Thornhill died.

    No arrests have been made as of Tuesday night.

    Thread: Most interesting classic unsolved murder cases

    This thread currently has over 350 cases with a brief synopsis of each and we are still adding additional cases.

    You can access a spreadsheet that lists the cases in alphabetical order with the page & post number so that you can locate a particular case you may be interested in. It also contains links to any cases that already have a thread on WS.

    Many cases do not have a thread. Please feel free to start one in the appropriate forum if you would like to look into one. Should you start a thread on one of these cases, please let me know so that I can add the link to the spreadsheet.

    Here is the link for the spreadsheet in alphabetical order:

    Baby Emmalee Marie Thornhill was born June 28, 2011 to Eric and Gloria (Dye) Thornhill.
    She passed away Saturday, February 25, 2012 at 7 months of age.


    For what it's worth... I can't find anything new. I also cannot find a picture of Emmalee by herself to post. (Other than at birth.)
    I believe there is an older sister and an older stepbrother. (4ish and 8ish maybe?)
    I believe this is a family who was living very much paycheck to paycheck. Dad appears to be a machinist.

    I am not sure what is suspicious about this baby's death... but I am definitely going to wait for further information.

    There was a case in Utah that was "suspicious" and then the ME said it wasn't.
    We had a family friend who's 8 day old baby died and her house was a crime scene for 5 days... the baby died from SIDS.

    Even if it IS in Oklahoma... (my thoughts exactly Belinda) I don't want to jump to conclusions without more information.
    Maybe somebody else can find more that I am not seeing? I am not good at searching court records. I just found facebooks.
