Last year, Oklahoma authorities charged Kevin Sweat, 25, with the murder of Skyla Whitaker (11) and Taylor Paschal-Placker (13). As discovery.com detailed, it was a particularly brutal crime. “According to Skyla’s autopsy report, she was shot a total of eight times in the neck, arms, shoulders, chest and abdomen. The report also details the discovery of two different caliber bullets. The second autopsy report, which details the injuries sustained by Taylor, shows that she had five separate gunshot wounds to the face, groin and hand.” Jessica Brown of the OK Bureau of Investigation told TTAG her office has been looking for the firearm connected to the case for four years . . .

“We don’t know how it moved, whether it was sold or traded or ended up at the bottom of a pond.” If there’s a new owner Brown says he or she shouldn’t worry about making the call. “We’re after that gun. That’s all we’re concerned about at this time.”

TTAG also contacted OK DA Max Cook’s office. They told us that the next hearing in the Sweat case is scheduled for January. Trial date? “Sometime in the spring.” The voice on the other end of the ‘phone indicated a certain lack of . . . conviction.

Finding that Glock would sure help matters.

  1. “‘We don’t know how it moved, whether it was sold or traded or ended up at the bottom of a pond.” If there’s a new owner Brown says he or she shouldn’t worry about making the call. “We’re after that gun. That’s all we’re concerned about at this time.'”

    Sounds like they’re hoping someone else involved in the murders is stupid enough to believe this and comes forward so they can nab ’em.

  2. And bringing forth the firearm in question would accomplish… what? Aid in Mr. Sweat’s conviction? Exonerate him? Establish the presence of a second party at the murder scene, or their involvement afterwards?

    The investigators are not doing themselves any favors by presenting the request this way. It raises more questions than it answers.

  3. “We’re after that gun. That’s all we’re concerned about at this time.”

    That’s some fine police work there, Jessica.

  4. Agree. Regardless of whom it would effect (implicate/Exonorate) I think the claim is it would lead to truth and justice. How the pistol was identified is a question I would add, too. I don’t see how they could identify it in absentia. Or, having it already IDed, physically having now would matter. And if one was to knowingly not turn in the weapon after seeing the flyer (or not checking their serial number if unsure) could they then be brought to charges?

  5. Maybe it got sold to one of those gun buyback programs and an important piece of evidence in a double homicide was melted down by the police.

  6. Is the inside of the barrel on a Glock tennifered? If so four years in the drink shouldn’t do much to it as far as matching breech face and rifling.

  7. I have no problems checking any Glock 22 SN I come across for that SN, 5K and helping convict a scumbag child killer is a win win, I think the request is valid with or without a reward attached.

  8. Are most of you brain dead? He probably purchased this gun new so they know the serial numbers and need it to match the ballistics. This would be a pretty good nail in this scumbags coffin. Who would want to own a gun once they found out it was used to kill two young girls anyway? If I found out it was in my possesion, I’d gladly turn it over to nail this lowlife.
