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.
