The identity of the second homicide victim found in a rural McIntosh County home Friday has been identified.

The medical examiner positively identified him as Terry Alan Wetselline, 42, from the Henryetta area.

Wetselline and Floyd Hathcoat were both shot one time in the head, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation reports. The two were found dead inside Hathcoat’s rural McIntosh County home Friday morning.

The McIntosh County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assist with the investigation. During the day, special agents developed Hathcoat’s son as a person of interest. Friday night, a park ranger found Christopher Jason Hathcoat breaking into a church at the Sequoyah State Park.

Hathcoat was driving his father’s stolen pickup truck and was arrested for the burglary and unrelated felony warrants.

On Monday, Christopher Hathcoat was booked into the McIntosh County jail on two counts of murder. OSBI special agents continue to investigate the crime.
