    He disappeared two weeks ago when he left to travel 30 miles or so to his home. How is the road conditions in that area?
    Hasn't the weather been terrible there?

    He raises brood chickens. Does someone come in to take care of his animals or does he handle it himself? Are his chickens still alive?

    Hitchita is less than 30 miles from Eufaula, where the Jamison family disappeared mysteriously.

    from the "Missing my Brother" iReport above:
    As we know little as yet, that "and even Mexico" probably sounds more hinky than it should.

    Did he carry a lot of money around with him?

    I don't think it would cost much to buy two chickens though. Way back when, we used to sell them for $2 each. Of course, they were mainly young roosters.

    I wonder where he does his banking?

    His truck was found with the keys in the ignition according to one of the articles linked above. This doesn't sound right at all. I hope he turns up okay!

    It sure sounds like LE is not giving the family assistance or the support that is needed. But then again, this is Oklahoma and I have come to expect this unfortunately after following many missing persons cases and murders in that state.

    I agree that the keys being left in the truck does not sound good at all.

    If this keeps up OK will have to have its own forum. New cases all the time and no resolution. Maybe we should send a websleuth to run for sheriff.At least we know to collect evidence.:maddening:

    You've got that right, Soul!

    I did find a court record for Chris;http://www1.odcr.com/detail.php?Case=046-TR 1100001&County=046-

    He asks the court for a sooner court date, because he will be out of the country Feb.28.

    The part about rasing chickens is interesting. Did he raise them as pets or were they used for cock fighting?

    What did Chris do for a living, that he had to leave the country so often?

    We need more information!:banghead:

    I looked earlier for an update on Mr. Shelton. Didn't find any.

    "Raising brood chickens" is, perhaps, a euphemism for raising brood gamefowl (as they're called), which itself can be a euphemism for raising cockfightin' birds. And as that - the quality of the gamefowl involved - is dependent on bloodlines, the chickens in question may have been pricey birds indeed.

    Or we could be a million miles off-base with such conjectures, viz a viz this case. Wish we knew more.

    Cockfighting's illegal in Oklahoma, btw - voted out in 2002, I think it was; then there were lengthy court appeals, which eventually upheld the public vote. But raising "gamefowl" is certainly legal.

    (And in another and quite likely a wildly unrelated area, LE in the San Antonio area just staged large-scale busts of Bandidos m/c personnel, some of the largest importers of methamphetamine to the U.S., yearly sales estimated at $60 million dollars. For that to happen people had to talk.)

    I guess I didn't know much about fowl vs chickens. LOL

    Now, what about a bank? According to this site which may not be up to date, Hitchita is very, very small, so they may not have a bank. Since it's not that far to Eufaula, I was thinking maybe Shelton and Jamison used the same bank. If Shelton had a franchise with Snap-On, raises fowl, owns ranches, lands, etc. and buys a lot of guns on the side, it sounds like he has a lot of money and we know that the Jamisons had some.

    http://oklahoma.hometownlocator.com/ok/mcintosh/hitchita.cfm

    Hitchita had a population of 113 with 51 housing units; a land area land area of 0.12 sq. miles; a water area of 0 sq. miles; and a population density of 951.06 people per sq. mile for Census 2000.

    When thinking of a title for this thread, I was tempted to write

    OK - Fowl play feared: Chris Shelton, 36, Hitchita

    but used my better judgement and didn't.

    I'm kinda thinking of moving to Oklahoma, because I really like fresh eggs and good tequila and I have a truck that's (momentarily, I hope) missing its spare set of keys, and the other set is (not) in the ignition. But it seems to depend on who you ask as to whether or not that's a good idea.

    Don't feel bad, watcher. They're just "chicken's" to me.

    Oh, Oriah!!! You made my belly hurt from laughing! Please ask for permission before taking anyone's eggs!

    Will do. ;)

    But really...if you're not accounting for your fowl to begin with, do I really need permission to take a few of your eggs?

    I think this might be the problem going on here. :waitasec:
