CHOCTAW, Okla. – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) has arrested three in the 2018 murder of Eric Trammell. Trammel, 35, was found dead on NE 36th Street in Choctaw and had been shot multiple times.
Yesterday, OSBI agents, with assistance from the U.S. Marshals and the Oklahoma City Police Department Violent Crime Apprehension Team, arrested three suspects for Trammel’s murder. Christopher L. Dawson, 19, Jaylen Williamson, 20, and a 16-year-old juvenile were arrested and taken to the Oklahoma County Jail. A fourth suspect, Jaylen Brown, 20, is already in jail facing charges for a different murder. It is expected all four will be charged with First Degree Murder.
On August 27, 2018, the Choctaw Police Department requested OSBI investigate Trammell’s death. OSBI agents located video surveillance from the area where Trammel was found and discovered he met with four men about 30 minutes prior to his murder. The video showed the four suspects arrived together in the same car. Agents were able to identify Brown from the video but required assistance to identify the other three. In May, 2020, the OSBI offered a $5,000 reward for assistance in identifying the other suspects.
