HENRYETTA, Okla. –
Search teams in Okmulgee County said seven bodies were found on a property in Henryetta, including those of two missing teenage girls.
Authorities say Ivy Webster, 14, and Brittany Brewer, 16, were last seen with Jesse McFadden, whose body was also found in a rural area east of Henryetta.
“Our hearts go out to the families and friends, schoolmates and everyone else. It’s just a tragedy in Okmulgee County,” said Sheriff Eddy Rice.
McFadden was a registered sex offender who was supposed to stand trial Monday, May 1, in Muskogee County.
He was charged in 2017 with using a contraband cell phone in prison to send sexual messages to a teenage girl.
He was in prison at that time after being convicted of rape in 2003 in Pittsburg County.
The father of Brittany Brewer told News On 6’s Kaitlyn Deggs that he is devastated.
“Brittany was an outgoing person. She actually was selected to be Miss Henryetta…coming up in July for this miss national miss pageant in Tulsa. And now she ain’t gonna make it because she’s dead. She’s gone,” said Nathan Brewer.
He said the victim’s families will struggle to pay for the funeral costs, so he’s working to set up a GoFundMe.
“So at this point, all I can say is for me and the Webster family, I know I don’t have the money to bury my daughter, and I know the Webster family doesn’t have the money to bury their daughter either,” said Brewer.
