Duncan teen murdered

Posted: Updated:

DUNCAN,Okla_A fourteen year old girl was murdered in her home in Duncan, and police have questioned two teenagers in connection with her killing.  The girl's father discovered her body Monday afternoon around 4:00 when he came home from work.  Duncan Police worked through the night on the case, which led to their two teenage suspects. 

At this point Duncan Police are unable to comment on motive, how the teenager was killed, or any previous records of the two suspects. But police have said Monday's homicide was not a random act of violence.

Police arrived at a home near west 20th and Walnut Avenue in Duncan around 5:00p.m.  There they found the girl's body.  Her father reported that he had last seen his daughter around 7:30 that morning before he went to work.

"She was still asleep and still in bed at that time. They next time was obviously when he returned from work. And that was somewhere in that 4 to 4:30 range," said Dan Ford, Duncan Police Chief. 

Duncan Police are still unsure the exact time the homicide took place, but knew it was essential to start the investigation immediately. It was an active crime scene late into the night as the authorities worked with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation to solve this unthinkable crime. 

"Working hand in hand with them and then throughout this morning. Leads were developed in the night. People were interviewed through the night, and nothing was substantial to lead us in any direction, " said Ford. 

That all changed this morning when contact was made yet again with a person of interest from the previous night, the 14year-old who is now a suspect.

"One of those individuals has given us a statement that they were present at the time of the homicide, and that they knew who they were with at that time and participated in it," said Ford. 

Duncan Police attribute the discoveries in this case to the hard work of all involved.

"Our investigators, our patrol people handled it absolutely by the book. When you get those started as fast as possible, things sometimes fall together," said Ford

Chief Dan Ford said two suspects had been brought in for questioning. The 16 year-old was still with investigators at the time of our interview. All involved are juveniles, making it tough to release much information at this time.

 

At last check, the 14 year-old suspect had been released to his parents, because police did not regard him as a future threat.  At last check, the 16 year-old was still in custody. We will keep you updated on details of this homicide as they continue to unfold.
