Unidentified Homicide Victims


The Pittsburg County Sheriff's Office in McAlester, Oklahoma, seeks information regarding the identities of a male and female found in April 1995, approximately 10 miles north of McAlester, Oklahoma, along the outer road adjacent to U.S. Highway 69.

The Crime Scene

Members of the Pittsburg County Sheriff's Office in McAlester, Oklahoma, discovered the two bodies, a male and a female, and estimated that the victims were shot and killed on or around March 18, 1995, 3 weeks prior to their discovery. After being shot, the victims were dragged about 40 feet into the woods and positioned next to each other, head-to-toe. Additionally, the bodies were located approximately 50 yards west of an active Union Pacific Railway track, which runs north and south and about one-half mile from the entrance of Crower Point, a Lake Eufaula public campsite.

The male victim was shot once in the chest and the female victim was shot twice in the chest. Ballistic examination on the projectiles retrieved from the victims determined that they were consistent with a .38-caliber or a .357-caliber bullet and displayed rifling characteristics of a Smith and Wesson or a Ruger model revolver. The male victim's left rear jean pants pocket was cut open, and he wore a watch with a Le Watch leather band. The watch was set 1 hour behind Oklahoma time, which is central standard time. No identifying information was found on the victims or in the area of the crime scene. It is unknown if the victims rode the railway transportation system, were hitchhiking, or drove an automobile. The victims may have been married; they wore matching wedding bands.

Alert to Law Enforcement
