LPD Following New Leads Into Rushing Murders

Posted: Updated:

LAWTON Okla_ 7News is following new details as the investigation continues into this week's murder of Uwe Rushing and his 13-year son Stefan.

Friday, police confirmed that evidence has led them to some possible suspects. At this time, the evidence is not strong enough to say they have a definite person of interest. Police stress that no one is being ruled out, though.

Captain Craig Akard made it very clear that a number of the questions regarding this case will remain unanswered until they receive more information from the medical examiner's office in Oklahoma City. Three detectives went there Friday with the hope that their reports, photographs, and diagrams will paint a more accurate picture of exactly what happened inside the family's home at Northwest 12th and Columbia.

Friday, police are releasing some new information about the crime scene, evidence and witness information. Captain Akard said that this is a case where detectives are having a hard time getting the evidence and information to piece together what exactly happened. The crime scene is just not matching up with what the evidence showed. To date, there is no word of drugs being found in the home. In fact, the background of the family is leaving police with the same question so many people are asking: Why this family?

"One of the catching points on this that we are trying to figure out, that we are trying to get around, is that this is a family, a father and his two kids, that everything leads to a very good life," Lawton Police Captain Craig Akard said. "It's a very close knit family. How can something like this happen? What would cause something like this to happen? That is something we have got to answer."

Police were given a tip about an incident between the father and one of the boys he was counseling at the boy's home he worked at. Police are now looking into that for more information. Police are calling on the community to provide any possible information that might help them in this case. If you know anything or hear anything, call Crimestoppers at 580-355-INFO.
