OSBI analyzing DNA in Logan County investigation

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) is collecting DNA with the goal of identifying bone fragments recovered in Logan County earlier this year. On April 6, 2022, the Pottawatomie County Sheriff’s Office, Logan County Sheriff’s Office and Oklahoma County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assistance with an investigation that involved missing persons from each county.  

Guthrie News Page spoke with OSBI officials on April 18, but they did not want to speak about the case and (politely) requested limited access to the area.

Law enforcement from multiple agencies recovered bone fragments at an Edmond address located in Logan County. Those remains were transported to the Oklahoma Office of Chief Medical Examiner for identification. Special Agents from the OSBI, along with detectives from the Pottawatomie, Logan and Oklahoma County Sheriff Offices, have been working closely with the families of the missing persons. Where possible, DNA has been collected from family members for identification purposes. However, due to the physical condition of the remains recovered, the process of identification takes time.

According to The Oklahoman, agents are investigating whether a white supremacist prison gang is behind nine or more disappearances.

In addition to positively identifying the remains, the ME’s office is also working to determine the cause and manner of death.

This investigation is fluid and very active. Because of that, the volume of rumors and speculation is high. The OSBI will not comment on rumors as that can jeopardize the ongoing investigation.
