    Dressed in deep blue jail clothing, Busick shuffled into the courtroom last Friday slowly, using a cane to walk. During this court hearing, Busick was seated with other inmates in the jury box during his appearance.

    Busick searched the courtroom with his eyes, saw the Bible and Freeman family members present, and took in a deep breath while waiting for the court proceedings to begin.

    Busick back in Craig County to face charges

    At one point it appeared Busick asked another inmate to shield him from being videoed from a television reporter aiming a camera at him through the courtroom door window.

    The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and Craig County Sheriff’s Office investigators continue to follow any new leads and ask anyone with any further information of the crimes to come forward. A $50,000 reward is offered for information that may help solve the crimes.

    Well none of those articles you sloane7777 are showing up for me. I'm guessing it's the miamiok.com.

    But at least I have a date for the next hearing.

    Busick, 66, of Wichita, Kansas, is facing four counts of first degree murder, first degree arson, and kidnapping charges for the 1999 disappearance and murders of Lauria Bible, Ashley Freeman.

    VINITA – They wait, and wait and wait. Waiting is something the families of Lauria Bible and Ashley Freeman are wishing would end, but their families and friends say they will never stop their pursuit for answers and justice.

    On Friday, July 13, Craig County District Court Special Judge Rebecca Gore continued Ronnie Dean Busick’s case again until 9 a.m. on Sept. 14 on the Preliminary Hearing Docket in the next step in the legal process to set a preliminary hearing in the case.

    Ronnie Dean Busick faces four counts of first-degree murder, first-degree arson and kidnapping charges for the 1999 disappearance and murders of 16-year-olds Lauria Bible and Ashley Freeman, and the murders of Ashley's parents Danny and Kathy Freeman.

    Busick is the lone surviving suspect in the long-running case. Two other men suspected to be involved in the case, Warren Welch and David Pennington, died in 2007 and 2015 respectively.

    Latest search for missing Welch girls yields no evidence

    MIAMI — No credible evidence was found in a daylong search of a rural area in northern Ottawa County on Wednesday for the remains of two missing and presumed dead teenagers, Ashley Freeman and Lauria Bible.

    A tip from a person, who reported possibly seeing a clandestine grave in the area, led local and state agents along with cadaver dogs from K9 Search Oklahoma to two undisclosed locations on Dec. 28, 2017, in the far northeast corner of Oklahoma and southeast corner of Kansas.

    A drone was used to survey the rocky, hilly and snowy terrain while the dogs hit on a couple of sites.

    Weather-related issues forced the search into a months-long hiatus.
    ..
    Wednesday’s search was the latest disappointment in an 18-year-old mystery. Investigators have searched locations in Ottawa County where bones were discovered in a field. Divers have searched Grand Lake and a water-filled quarry in Chelsea. Cameras have been dropped into abandoned wells in Chetopa, Kansas, and abandoned mines and mining areas in Picher and Galena, Kansas.

    Slightly off topic:
    As fellow European, I feel you, Niner! These region restricted sites (and they are MANY!) are a pain in the :eek: , but fear not! VPN is your friend. There are several decent and free VPN services available online, just do a little google search ;)
