MIDWEST CITY - Police completed their excavation at a Jones home Thursday afternoon.

Thursday brought another day of searching and digging, leaving more questions than answers for folks in Jones.

Midwest City police, crime scene investigators, and those with the medical examiner’s office have been combing the property for days in the 600 block of Main Street.

“The first thing I thought of is it was probably a drug bust or something,” Jeanie Marsh said.

Police are staying tight lipped on this one, but they will confirm they’re searching for evidence in connection with a Midwest City cold case.

They won’t tell us which one, but the chief says there are five cold cases his office is still investigating.

Those are Kenneth Frasure (1986), Nancy Probst (2000), Dale Johnson (1997), Brenda White (1967), and Kirsten Hatfield (1997).

Hatfield’s disappearance was likely the most high-profile.

The little 2nd grader vanished in the middle of the night from her Midwest City home.

FBI agents chased down several leads with no luck.

She would’ve been 25 now.

Police say even if they do find something there in connection with one of these cold cases, it could still be a while before it leads to a break in the case.

“It’s scary, in this little bitty town, it's scary something like that could be going on,” Marsh said.
