Broken Arrow to release 911 call

Ponca City Now - July 29, 2015 8:43 am

TULSA, Okla. (AP) – The Broken Arrow City Attorney says the city will release a recording of the 911 call made from a home where a couple and three of their children were stabbed to death last week.

In a reversal Tuesday, Broken Arrow City Attorney Beth Anne Wilkening says investigators would provide the information to the media next Tuesday.

Authorities initially said the call, described by Broken Arrow Police Sgt. Thomas Cooper as "gruesome," would be released Monday, but an assistant to the city attorney then indicated it wouldn’t be released because it’s part of the investigation into the deaths of the five members of the Bever family.

Wilkening says the release was delayed because a prosecutor was concerned the provision of certain records to reporters "could impact the prosecutorial integrity of the case."
