Help needed to identify body

Ponca City Now - April 14, 2015 4:06 pm

On April 7, a Department of Transportation worker clearing brush along Interstate 40 near Hinton discovered a dead body in the ditch.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation was called to investigate what will likely become a homicide case. The body was badly decomposed, making it difficult to determine gender, race, or other identifiers. However, several pieces of jewelry were still with the body.

The photographs shown were taken at the medical examiner’s office. One picture is that of a navel ring. The second picture is what appears to be a wedding ring set found on the person’s right hand. The individual also wore purple ankle socks with a skull and crossbones pattern.

If anyone knows of a person who has not been seen for at least several weeks and owned jewelry and/or socks matching those mentioned, please call the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017. The medical examiner’s office is working to determine the cause and manner of death.
