    Body found may be missing Newcastle woman
    A Tuttle resident hunting for mushrooms Wednesday found a body that may turn a missing person case into a homicide investigation for Oklahoma City police.

    [...]

    Cummins said DM called Tuttle police about 10:45 a.m. to report he found a body about two miles north of State Highway 37 near Frisco Road.

    Police said DM saw the body near a creek about 10 feet west of Frisco Road. The creek is obscured from the road by trees and brush.

    [...]

    Cummins said officers arriving at the scene in Tuttle were unable to make a positive identification. Police will wait for a medical examiner's report, which is expected to identify the body and give a cause of death.

    Woman's death ruled homicide
    The death of a woman believed to be a missing Newcastle mother was ruled a homicide by asphyxiation, the state medical examiner's office said Thursday. Authorities still have not positively identified the body.

    [...]

    Officers found no obvious signs of trauma or struggle. The body was clothed.

    [...]

    Cox's car was found abandoned across the street from the 7-Eleven about 1:30 a.m. Saturday. Police found no signs of forced entry or marks of a fight or struggle.

    Police planned to talk with Cox's ex-husband, who they said contacted her parents Sunday claiming the body might be found in a pond near SW 104 near MacArthur Boulevard. Police found only an abandoned car that had been reported stolen.

    The medical examiner's office may identify the body today.

    Midnight to mark worst unsolved homicide rate in years

    [...]

    Twelve of the other 13 unsolved cases pose similar problems, Cunningham said. Six are believed to be drug-related, four involve transients, one was an apparent robbery, and another appears to be a revenge killing.

    In the final case - the April 5 asphyxiation death of Sarah Ida Cox, 20 - evidence is being presented to a grand jury, which is expected to issue an indictment in January.

    In the others, the clock keeps ticking.

    Newcastle family still desperate for answers in daughter’s 2001 murder
    [...]

    "I do miss her hugs," said William Killian. He was just 2-years-old when his mother, Sarah Cox, was killed.

    [...]

    18 years later, he's seeing the spot where her body was found for the first time.

    "Of course, I can say I miss her but she's not here," Killian said.

    Cox's parents, Jim and Carolyn Killian, raised William and his little sister.

    [...]

    "It was way up to two in the morning when the officer of Oklahoma City said, `You gotta stop, you gotta stop,'" said Carolyn.

    [...]

    "We know there's more than one person involved," Joe Killian said.

    18 years later, as the holidays and milestones without this beloved mother passed, there's never been a conviction.

    Now the family is begging anyone who knows something to come forward.

    How awful for her son, who was only 2 at the time...he misses her hugs :( Those hugs are everything for the little tots. I can't imagine what it's like to have that snatched away. Praying for answers.
