A much more lengthy and detailed article on the Ricin episode here.
Complaint: Homemade toxin used in 2014 murder plot by woman also accused of killing roommate

Left behind during the burglary, the man and his wife told police, was a powder that they thought resembled sheetrock dust, found in a hallway and in the couple’s bedroom, and in the sock and underwear drawers of the wife’s dresser.

Last year, Investigator Danny Elliot from the Wagoner County Sheriff’s Office in Oklahoma, who was at that point investigating Galloway’s missing person case in which Adams was a suspect, contacted Dane County Assistant District Attorney Paul Humphrey, who had prosecuted the Adams identity theft case. He also contacted the woman whose home was burglarized, and she said even in July 2020, she had found some powder still at the bottom of her sock drawer from the 2014 incident.​

She mailed some to Elliot, who turned it over to the FBI, which found the powder was ricin.​

Snip ...

Adams’ former husband, identified in Oklahoma divorce court records as Alexander Adams, told Bethel in January, under an agreement that gave him immunity for his statements, that Kore Adams had admitted to him that the white powder found in their neighbors’ home “was the result of her trying to poison” their neighbors.

He said he and his wife did not get along with their neighbors and that his wife had the makings of ricin as early as 2012 when they lived near Portland, Oregon.

“(Alexander Adams) said that Adams told him that she was brewing ricin for use against their enemies,” the complaint states. He said he told his wife to take it away and he didn’t see it again.

Kore Adams also admitted to him, he said, that she broke into the neighbors’ house and took a safe from the home.​

Snip ...

In March, with Kore Adams now charged with homicide, Bethel was told by Elliot, the Oklahoma detective, that a safe had been found at a self-storage locker in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, in a unit rented by Adams.

The rent for the unit and another rented by Adams was overdue, and Elliot was there when the owner cut the locks off the units. Arkansas State Police retrieved the safe and shipped it to Bethel in Madison earlier this month, and it was opened.

In the safe were several bags of what appeared to be castor beans, some with a factory label. A packing slip for ricinus communis, the Latin name for castor beans, with Adams’ name on it, was also found.

A laptop computer taken during a police search of Adams’ home as part of the Oklahoma homicide investigation turned up numerous internet searches from 2012 inquiring about making ricin. There were also two Microsoft Word files created by Adams on Oct. 13, 2012, titled “Making Ricin,” which appeared to be a recipe and step-by-step procedure for making ricin from castor beans.​

Oregon authorities should look into any deaths anywhere in the vicinity of where Kore Bommeli (and her previous names) lived or anyone she worked with that may have died unexpectedly. Ricin starting in 2012 could suggest that is an escalation in sophistication of other means of killing people. Maybe there won't be anyone, but this does not seem like the idea of killing "enemies" came out of the blue only in 2012 considering how old she is. She has been highly dangerous for a long time.

ETA: It is also worth noting that it is 127 miles driving distance from Wagoner, OK to Eureka Springs, AR where the storage unit was. That kind of thinking and/or planning also suggests someone that has spent a lot of time on how they would dispose of evidence across state lines, etc. It is well worth the effort for state and federal officials to dig deeper on her.

Wow. This is absolutely crazy! Is KB a serial killer? I’ve been seeing a lot of cases like this on websleuths when someone is caught they are able to slowly trace lines to other possible murders well before the final arrest. so different than what you see on TV as a depiction of hunting down serial killers.

An update has been posted, as of August 27, on the Wagoner County Sheriff website. Unfortunately, I cannot open it on my phone tonight.

Update on Kore Bommeli homicide case
08/27/2021

UPDATE***UPDATE**** 08-27-2021

Update on previous case - Kore Bommeli completed a 4-day Preliminary hearing where a judge heard evidence from the state, and cross examination of witnesses from Bommelli's attorney. The judge found substantial evidence to bind Kore Bommelli over for trial on several felony charges, including 1st Degree Murder of Talina Galloway. The trial will be set for a later date. Additional updates will be provided when available.

Sheriff's Office makes arrest in missing persons case, suspect charged with Murder

On April 17th, 2020, the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office received a report of a missing persons. Talina Galloway was reported missing by her roommate Kore Bommeli. Talina Galloway and Kore Bommeli lived in a lake community area of Wagoner County located on the west side of Fort Gibson Lake.

The Wagoner County Sheriff's immediately launched a missing persons investigation for Talina Galloway. Talina Galloway did not have any immediate family members in the Wagoner County area, so naturally we believed her roommate, Kore Bommeli would be the best source of information of the possible where abouts and habits of Talina Galloway. During this part of the investigation Kore Bommeli was merely a witness and the person reporting.

Throughout the course of this intensive investigation, investigators soon realized that Kore Bommeli exhibited suspicious behavior, gave inconsistent statements, and later was proven to be deceptive in her reporting of the circumstances surrounding the disappearance regarding Kore Bommeli.

Throughout this labor intensive and tedious 9-month investigation, investigators with the Wagoner County Sheriff Offices, executed multiple search warrants in multiple law enforcement jurisdictions. Conducted many interviews on the investigation. Investigators processed multiple possible crime scenes, collected, and preserved trace evidence, collected, and submitted for examination blood and DNA evidence. Timelines were examined, investigated, and verified.

Investigators soon realized that Kore Bommeli knew much more than she was sharing with investigators, and she soon became a "person of interest "in the disappearance of Talina Galloway.

The investigation produced evidence leading investigators to believe that Kore Bommeli possessed direct knowledge of the where-abouts of Talina Galloway. I Kore Bommeli soon broke off communications with investigators, and refused to cooperate further in the investigation, and locating her roommate, Talina Galloway.

On June 8th, 2020, a witness in the area of Polk County Arkansas observed a pickup towing a small, enclosed trailer. The truck and trailer and were observed driving into a secluded area that is adjacent to the Ouachita National Forrest, south of Mena Arkansas. The witness was suspicious of the activity and walked into the area where the witness believed the truck had traveled to. The witness located the truck and trailer and observed that at that time, there was nobody around the vehicle. The witness documented the tag number on the vehicle, and denoted that there was foul odor coming from the trailer, and that there was a foul-smelling thick liquid pooled in the floor of the trailer.

The witness believed that the activity was suspicious, left the area and contacted the Polk County Sheriff's Office to report the suspicious activity. The Polk County Sheriff's did not contact with the witness but did dispatch a deputy to the area to investigate.

The witness, not realizing that the Polk County Sheriff's Office responded, assumed that the situation was resolved and did not press the manner any further. On January 14th, 2021, the same witness was walking in the woods and came upon a white box type freezer with the lid taped shut. The witness reported that there was a foul smell in the area of the freezer. The witness notified the Polk County Sheriff's Office of the discovery and the tag number of the vehicle that she had documented the previous year. That tag number was found to be registered to missing persons, Talina Galloway out of Wagoner County.

Polk County Sheriff's Office responded to the scene and discovered what appeared to be dismembered human remains inside the freezer. Arkansas State Medical Examiner accepted jurisdiction of the remains and took possession of the freezer.

On January 19, 2021 Wagoner County Sheriff's Office investigators received a "tentative report of identification" from the Arkansas State Medical Examiner identifying the human remains as Talina Galloway. Manner of death was identified as "homicide."

Wagoner County Investigators began searching for Kore Bommeli who was currently out on bond from previous Wagoner County of illegal possession of a firearm. Bommeli was believed to be in the area of Dane County, Wisconsin.

Dane County Sheriff's located Kore Bommeli yesterday afternoon and she was arrested without incident. Bommeli is currently in the Dane County Jail, Dane County Wisconsin, awaiting transport back to Wagoner County where she will face charges of Murder in the 1st Degree and Desecration of a Human Corpse.

Sheriff Chris Elliott and would like to acknowledge our appreciation for all the agencies that assisted with this investigation. Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Oklahoma Medical Examiner's Office, District 27, Jack Thorp, Arkansas State Police, Polk County Arkansas Sheriff's Office, Arkansas State Medical Examiner's Office, Dane County Sheriff's Office -Wisconsin, and Heath Underwood - Wagoner County Emergency.

The investigation into the disappearance Talina Galloway was a very tedious and exhaustive investigation. These types of investigations will always test the resolve of any law enforcement investigator. Wagoner County residents can be proud tonight of the dedicated investigators who worked tirelessly to ensure Talina Galloway did not die in vain. Virtually every member of our investigative division worked around the clock, traveling to multiple jurisdictions across multiple states, during a global pandemic, navigating difficult investigative barriers, to solve this terrible crime.

The citizens of Wagoner County are blessed and fortunate to have deputies that have the courage, bravery, and tenacity to endure an investigation as complicated as the Talina Galloway murder. The investigators involved in resolving this case were Investigator J. Weber, Investigator D. Elliott, Investigator B. Noble, and Investigator J. Kelley.

These devoted public servants continue to demonstrate the will and determination of the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office to protect our community, and to put criminals on notice: You will not escape justice in Wagoner County. If you commit a crime in our community, we will hunt you, we will find you, and we will bring you to justice, no matter where you are. You will not escape justice in Wagoner County.

Thank you all for bringing this info together. I've just joined this site, specifically to track this case. I knew KB, was a victim of her many financial and property crimes around 2012--quite possibly one of the "enemies" mentioned. I am deeply relieved to know that she's in custody.

Accused murderer ordered to stand trial in Wagoner County

Aug 2021
Wagoner County prosecutors allege Kore Bommeli killed Talina Galloway for her money sometime between March 27 and April 17, 2020.

Bommeli, who was granted powers of attorney to make Galloway's medical decisions and named executor of Galloway's estate, reportedly feared the novel coronavirus.

Prosecutors allege Bommeli reported her roommate missing on April 17. During the investigation of Galloway's disappearance, "investigators learned that the defendant lied about taking" Galloway to the hospital in March, "the whereabouts of a white trailer" allegedly seen by investigators at the Whitehorn Cove residence when they took the initial report, and the location of Galloway's bedroom inside their Whitehorn Cove home.

To establish jurisdiction, Jordan said state law requires only evidence that shows where a crime "might have been committed." He said large areas where blood were found in a bedroom and in the garage at the women's home satisfies that requirement with regard to the murder charge, and the amount of time — and privacy — required for to dismember a body suggests desecration was carried out where Galloway was killed.

What does matter, Jordan said, arguing in opposition to Hutson's attempts to derail the state's case, is "large sections of blood were detected through Blue Star both in the garage and the bedroom where Talina Galloway resided.

The medical examiner concluded it took "at least three blows to the head" to "cause the skull fracture" sustained by Galloway.
