Arrest Made in 2016 Suspicious Death Case of Jennifer Molloy

KOKH - May 6, 2024 7:08 am

Nearly eight years after the death of 19-year-old Jennifer Kyli Molloy, a man has been arrested and charged with her murder.

Molloy was found dead in her Edmond apartment on 900 E. Wayne Avenue on October 5, 2016.

According to the Edmond Police Department (EPD), on Thursday around 10:30 am, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol responded to a routine check welfare call of an individual sitting on the side of I-40 near the Reno/Scott exit,

“Passerby saw someone sitting alongside the highway, considered it dangerous so they called it in just to make sure he was doing okay,” said Emily Ward with the Edmond Police Department.

Officials said when the Trooper made contact with 28-year-old Joseph Tyler Beck, Beck began voluntarily telling him about his involvement in a 2016 Edmond death.

“I can’t go into detail on what he was saying, but.. it was voluntary, he wasn’t trying to hold anything back,” Ward said, “It seemed that he wanted to get it all off of his chest.”

The trooper detained Beck and EPD was notified.

Beck was taken to the EPD’s station to be interviewed by detectives. He was arrested and charged with first-degree murder based on the information he told them.

Beck has been booked into the Oklahoma County Detention Center.

Police say Beck and Molloy knew each other as acquaintances, but would not consider them friends.

EPD said the investigation has drawn multiple leads over the years, but no arrests have been made until now,

“It’s not going to bring our victim back, but hopefully it can be the first step and some closure for her loved ones and her family,” said Ward.
