Shawn Pittman

STROUD — Stroud Police arrested Shawn Pittman, 39, shortly after 5 p.m. Tuesday on a complaint of driving under the influence.

Police and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation had been searching for Pittman as a person of interest in the death of his parents, Pauletta Pittman, 63, and Mark Pittman, 65. They were discovered deceased inside their home in the 500 block of West 10th after a coworker of Pauletta’s called police when she didn’t show up for work Tuesday morning.

Investigators received a call Tuesday afternoon that a Sienna mini-van matching the description of the one owned by Pauletta was getting gas at a station in Stroud.

A second call reported that the mini-van had left the gas station. Based on the information received from the callers, the Stroud Police Department was able to locate the vehicle driving Westbound on 4th Street and pulled it over.

Pittman is jailed in Stroud. The investigation into his parents’ murders is ongoing.
