OKFUSKEE COUNTY, Okla. – A witness is providing new details about the murders of a man and a woman before their bodies were buried in rural Okfuskee County.
Last month, investigators found two bodies in a shallow grave in Okfuskee County.
Ultimately, the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s Office was able to identify the victims as a missing man and woman from Texas; Michael Swearingin and Jenna Scott.
The pair was reported missing on Jan. 4, and their families had been searching for them in Bell County, Texas. However, investigators received a tip, which led them to remote Okfuskee County.
Now, a witness is providing new information regarding their murders.
The affidavit states that the witness heard a struggle when Marks walked into a room with Swearingin and Scott. When he left, the witness said they both were dead.
Investigators haven’t released a motive for the murders, but say that Scott was Marks’ ex-girlfriend. Marks is also a person of interest in the disappearance of April Pease, who is the mother of his child.
