Altus man was burned alive

ALTUS_ The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has determined a man whose burned body was found next to a Jackson County road in May, was alive when he was set on fire.

Investigators say Johnny Ray Lee Junior of Altus had planned on visiting friends in Olney, Texas the day before his body was found. His pickup was found more than a week later about three miles from the scene. The Oklahoma State Medical Examiner has determined Lee died of massive burn injuries, and his death has been ruled a homicide.

The OSBI is still looking for any information which could help lead them to Lee's killer. They are offering up to a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. Contact them at 1-800-522-8017 or
