I'm waiting for some answers? Anybody want to touch this subject? Drugs probably involved in wadie wards death... But he didn't deserve to die! Judy Sullivan Parker was with him that night! Her story stinks to high heaven! A young man dead. I think his wife killed herself or drug overdose some years later. They had a daughter that "Hap" Ward and his wife adopted. I wonder how her life is? Murder, suicide, any death of a parent leaves a gapping scar. The Stevenson children are probably ok. They had a good family support group. Still a mysterious fire, Xmas, both dead? What really happened?

I'm sorry. I misspelled her first name. It should be Crystal. Crystal was left in the care of her mother's boyfriend for two weeks while the mother worked in Dallas. When the mother returned home, Crystal was not there and stories told by her care giver were suspicious. Evidence pointing to foul play was found in and around the house including blood stains. It was eventually determined that Crystal was dead. A few years later, Crystal's skull was found in a wooded area near the part-time residence of the boyfrieds. He had lived in the same residence part-time when Crystal went missing. The remainder of her body was never found.

May I just offer a post on this topic and then leave? Here's how it works. The OSBI is very eager to solve unsolved homicides. It's actually their prime area, and they have passion to bring murderers to justice. I've been at this for more than 30 years, and have seen it first-hand. It's much, much more than just a job for these guys.

But then there's the DA, who is the highest law enforcement officer in three counties. They can't say it, but the OSBI knows which DAs will and won't pursue these cases. I'm not going to badmouth any previous DAs but will tell you that the current one is the real McCoy and the OSBI knows it. That's why the Hope Meeks case has been filed. If you have any evidence on previously unsolved cases, give it to local law enforcement (sheriff, PD, etc.) and ask that they forward it to the OSBI. I can assure you, with DNA and other forensic tools, the OSBI has never been more aggressive about solving unsolved crimes if they have a DA with the (put your own word here) to pursue it. Right now we do. Probably won't forever, but right now we do. That's simply the truth. You can disagree if you want.

Shortly after Crystal's skull was found, I found what appeared to be rib bones and a tibia. These bones were found about 300-400 yards from where the skull was found. These were picked up by the Broken Bow Police department. I heard nothing else about the bones but several months later learned that they were still laying on the desk of the police chief. I call OSBI. The clerk that answered the phone grilled me on why I wanted to talk to an investigater then I was told that they were not in but to leave my name and number and someone would call me. Within 10-15 minutes I received a call from an investigator with OSBI. He had already call the Broken Bow police department and was told that the bones belonged to a deer. I took pictures of the bones. I had compared them to pictures of human bones and they matched. That was the last I ever heard and to my knowledge no one ever did a search in that area for additional bones. Little Crystal's remains are most likely still in that area.

The OSBI has been funded to actively pursue these cold cases, and we've seen firsthand that they really do want to solve them. In this county, now is very much the prime time. New evidence (and that can include new witness testimony)can help on a case, as well as new physical evidence. You also have to consider, especially where DNA evidence is concerned, that new technology can help solve a case where old technology could not. Just because they couldn't solve it before doesn't mean they can't now.

Thanks Bruce. That is what I have been trying to get some one to understand. You probably remember Leona Wooten murdered in her home on nov 5 1974. Archie trotter murdered as heralded his bread truck behind Woodrums old grocery store. The suspicious fire that left the Stevensons dead. Christmas many years ago. Wade ward. Dead. Found years later far from where he was last seen. All of that smells. Old DNA surely exist, unless poor record keeping came into Play? Always have been interested in the Who's and Why's of these peoples's death, and mostly WHY the families have not actively pursued and pushed and hollered for some answers. Thanks for hereing me. There are family still in IDABEL, many of them, and I believe a " person of interest" in at least two of these cases.

Interesting. Also there is the man that disappeared from Broken Bow and was found about a year later on the side of Kiamichi mountain and was apparently thrown from the roadside. I can't remember the man's name. Another body was found north of Broken Bow with head and hands removed. The body was never identified.

Those mountains are probably covered with "secrets". All my many years I remember un identified bodies and missing persons from mcCurtain county so very often. Moonshine and "stills " were every where north of broken bow. Fight at the many beer joints, and the Wagon Wheel was pretty ruff! I don't think law enforcement ever even showed up. People patched up their own knife wounds ,took another drink and went on about their business. Then whiskey turned to drugs, and the "mountains" was the perfect place to settle
all scores there too! This is truth speaking.
