The Blaine County Sheriff’s Office requested assistance from the Oklahoma State Bureua of Investigation with a homicide investigation that occurred just outside Canton about 5 a.m. Wednesday.

A man and woman driving from Oklahoma City to Canton overnight picked up a hitchhiker in Oklahoma City. Two miles east of Canton, the hitchhiker shot the female passenger, killing her. The hitchhiker then exited the vehicle. The male driver drove to the Canton Police Department seeking help.

Right now, OSBI special agents, Canton officers, and Blaine County deputies are following leads. More information will be released when it becomes available. The female victim has not been positively identified at this point.

Investigators have obtained a still photograph from surveillance video inside a Watonga convenience store. The man in the picture is considered a person of interest — someone who can possibly help with the investigation. If anyone recognizes this man, please call the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.
