    An autopsy report shows that a 14-month-old Broken Arrow boy found dead in his playpen in March suffocated. Elijah Woolley died March 30, 2018, in his home in the 7400 block of South Delucca Street in Broken Arrow. The medical examiner said the toddler had contusions to his upper and lower lips and a hemorrhage to his neck at the base of the skull consistent with asphyxia due to suffocation. Records show Elijah Woolley also had "multiple penetrating blunt impact injuries to the anus."

    Elijah's grandparents have been accused of child sexual assault in connection to another child, age 5.

    Investigators said the 5-year-old told them that William "Bill" Woolley, III was responsible for the abuse and Lisa Woolley witnessed it. Bill Woolley is charged with child sexual abuse, and Lisa Woolley is charged with enabling child sexual abuse.

    I've been reading several articles, FB references and looking at pictures concerning this horrific case. I would NEVER, EVER have dreamed these grandparents could have done something like this. Not in a million years. Talk about darkness and shadows in places one would never look...how in the world does something like this happen and no one is aware of it? Someone in that home did something.............

    I bet they never thought the 5 yr old would tell on them. Good for the 5 yrs old sibling for telling the story.

    Just checking in to see if there was any news regarding this horrific case. It is still so hard to believe two grandparents could do this. Mind boggling!

    I think its possible there isnt much more about this out there in msm because the grandparents aren't the ones who did it. I reallllly hope LE is doing their due diligence on this one.

    Did they have the hearing today, 12/20? I also wonder why in the world they would ever allow any kind of bond to be set for someone whom they suspect of murdering a 14 month old child and sexually molesting a five year old. Is there that much doubt that they would allow someone like this out to self harm or perhaps, God forbid, get rid of a witness? I guess I just don't understand why they feel it's necessary to set ANY kind of bond.

    Wagoner County grandparents charged with murder of infant boy


    Prosecutors have filed new charges against the grandparents of a 14-month-old boy found dead in March.

    The Wagoner County Sheriff’s Department on Thursday arrested William Woolley III, 59, and his wife, Lisa Woolley, 56, for first-degree murder involving the death of a child. William was also served a warrant for sexual abuse of a child under 12, and Lisa was served with enabling child sexual abuse.
    [.....]
    The Woolleys were booked into the Wagoner County jail on two counts each of sexual assault of a minor in April of 2018. They bonded out in late July.

    William Woolley, III does not have a bond at this time. Lisa Woolley’s bond is $500,000.

    For some reason, this case just haunts me. Perhaps because I am a grandmother. I cannot imagine how something like this happens. Seems I remember there was another person in the home at the time of the incidents. I always wondered about that other person. Just can't get my head and heart around grandparents hurting their little, precious babies in any way. Hopefully, the truth will out.
