Weleetka_Authorities say a mentally ill man who told state troopers he was involved in the recent slayings of two young girls near Weleetka was found to have nothing to do with the crime.
The man, who was armed with a bolt-action rifle, was arrested Tuesday morning in Weleetka. He threatened troopers that he was involved in the shooting deaths of 13-year-old Taylor Paschal-Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker, whose bodies were discovered June 8 along a back country road.
Lt. George brown says the Oklahoma Highway Patrol was able to determine through extensive questioning that the man was mentally ill and the arrest was unrelated to the killings.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has not returned multiple calls seeking comment on the situation.
