CHOCTAW, Okla. - An Oklahoma County man was murdered and his body shoved in the trunk of his car.

It’s a case that has left investigators searching for one man for more than a decade in hopes of solving the case.

"It was a very violent crime," said Capt. Bob Green, with the Oklahoma County Sheriff's Office.

David Whetstone's body was discovered in the trunk of a car by his wife.

 “She walked over and saw a pool of blood underneath the trunk of the car and she called 911,” said Green

He had been shot numerous times.

Whetstone's body was found in 2002 but so far, no arrests have been made.

Years later, investigators still have very few answers as to who the killer is.

The only thing they know for sure is a coin collection worth tens of thousands of dollars is missing.

“We were told they consisted of a lot of old, old coins from Roman times and Greek times. Some were gold coins,” Green said.

Investigators say they are still searching for one man in hopes he has the answer.

Coming up Friday night at 10, the man investigators are searching for, where he was last seen and the crime he's accused of in another county.
