Oklahoma investigators find suspect in 34-year-old homicide

The Associated Press - December 16, 2016 10:16 am

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says a 65-year-old man has been arrested in New Orleans in connection with the 1982 shooting death of a 23-year-old Cuban immigrant in Oklahoma City.
The OSBI says authorities in Louisiana arrested Raul Sierra about 4:30 p.m. Thursday. A warrant for Sierra’s arrest for first-degree murder was filed in Oklahoma County Wednesday in the death of Wilfredo Roberto Matos Osorio 34 years ago.
Osorio’s body was found on the embankment of a bridge in Pottawatomie County on Nov. 28, 1982. The state Medical Examiner’s Office determined Osorio died from multiple gunshot wounds. OSBI agents learned he had been shot and killed in an Oklahoma City residence and his body dumped in Pottawatomie County.
Investigators say a second suspect implicated in the case has died.
