OSBI to reveal updates in 34-year-old murder case

Ponca City Now - July 10, 2015 7:54 am

More than 34 years ago, Tracey Neilson was viciously stabbed to death inside her Moore apartment.

In January 2015, OSBI shared crucial evidence with the public hoping it would spawn new leads pointing to the killer. OSBI revealed a cable ticket book with Tracey’s address, the date, and time of the service call. That date was Jan. 5, 1981 — Tracey’s 21st birthday. The time hand written on the ticket was around noon, approximately the time of her murder.

Through dozens of tips, OSBI learned the ticket book belonged to a Southwestern Bell employee. However, records of which employee used that ticket book on that date have not been located.

This afternoon the OSBI has invited media back to its Oklahoma City headquarters for a look inside the crime scene. Agents will also reveal what the killer took from the scene, possibly as a souvenir.

Information on that evidence or other information about the case could garner an enormous reward. That, too, will be revealed during the press conference.

Ponca City resident Pam Childs, who was Tracey Neilson’s best friend, will attend the press conference with members of Tracey’s family.
