A mother is seeking answers in the murder of her son that took place in the early morning hours on Guthrie’s east side. More importantly, she’s looking for comfort.
“Pray for my family. Pray for my sanity. I lost a son today,” the mother of Joey Angelo posted on Facebook approximately five hours after her son was shot and killed.
“I love you to the moon and back Joey Angelo! May God wrap you in his arms and keep you til [sic] I see you again. Always in my heart. I can’t believe this is happening.”
Police say Angelo, 24, was shot 36 times and was found on the front porch at the home of 312 S. Oak.

Angelo, who leaves a young daughter, was rushed to OU Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
So far, police have not made any arrests in the case, but are following up with several leads in both Logan and Oklahoma counties.
“I’m his mother. Trying to bring my son home from Oklahoma to lay him to rest,” the mother posted on the gofundme page. “He was murdered. Anything helps. Any money left over will go to help the less fortunate. I’m a firm believer in faith and justice. God bless.”
