Three people are behind bars in connection with the homicide of 41-year-old Harold Jones of McCurtain County.

Jones and his pickup truck were reported missing earlier this month. The truck was found in Mt. Pleasant, Texas, and traced back to Clarksville, Texas.

OSBI special agents, an anthropologist with the Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, Broken Bow fire department, and deputies with the McCurtain County Sheriff Office spent Friday, July 14, recovering Jones’ body from a well 15 miles north of Idabel.

OSBI special agents worked all weekend investigating the crime, hence these arrests: Marvin Earl Baty (d.o.b. 12/09/1974), of Clarksville, Texas; Heather Melancon (d.o.b. 07/01/1986), of Idabel; and Bo Greenwood (d.o.b. 01/25/1992, of Idabel.

An OSBI special agent arrested Greenwood at the McCurtain County Sheriff’s Office Friday evening. The agent had deputies arrest Melancon when they found her walking along a street in Idabel. Red River County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Baty last night at his residence at 304 Star St in Clarksville after a three-hour-long standoff.

All three individuals were arrested for murder in the second degree since a death occurred during the commission of a felony. The felony was stealing Jones’ pickup truck. Charges can be amended once the medical examiner’s office determines a manner of death.
