MURDERED: Owachige Osceola

Recently divorced and living on her own in a new city, 27-year-old Owachige Osceola?s life was in a season of transition before she was killed in the bedroom of her Norman, Oklahoma apartment in September 2013. While the medical examiner who performed her autopsy concluded her cause and manner of death were ?undetermined,? a detective who remains on the case today insists a killer has been allowed to walk free for nearly a decade.

Please join us in writing a letter to the Oklahoma Attorney General?s Office calling for a formal independent review of the methodology used during Owachige?s autopsy. Below you will find a prompt you can use and the address to send the letter to.

 

(WHERE TO SEND)

Mr. John O'Connor

Oklahoma Attorney General's Office

313 NE 21st Street
Oklahoma City, OK 73105

[email protected]

 

To Whom It May Concern:

I'm writing in regard to the criminal investigation related to the mysterious death of Ms. Owachige Osceola in September 2013, which is being conducted by the Norman Police Department.

As you may be aware, Ms. Osceola's cause and manner of death were classified by the Oklahoma Office of the Chief Medical Examiner as "undetermined" despite credible evidence that she was intentionally strangled to death in the bedroom of her apartment.

After hearing concerns expressed by Norman Police Department investigators working this case and closely listening to details about the criminal investigation into her death as reported by Audiochuck Podcast Network's "The Deck," I'm deeply troubled that the medical examiner's office has been unwilling to reconsider its original ruling ? directly hindering further investigative efforts to pursue justice for Ms. Osceola and her loved ones.

I implore the Oklahoma Attorney General's Office to reexamine evidence in this case and to insist that the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner consider that Ms. Osceola's death was the result of a homicidal act. I also kindly request that this office publicly publish its conclusions in the matter.

Respectfully,

[YOUR FIRST & LAST NAME]

PRECEDENT: John Brady

In 1958 John Brady, along with an accomplice, was accused of murdering his friend, William Brooks. John maintained that he had not taken part in the murder, that he was only part of a plan to rob the man. However, his accomplice turned on him and he was eventually found guilty. Though there was something the prosecution was holding back that would completely change the way a jury would view the case. And when the shady tactics of the prosecution were revealed, a new legal precedent was set that aimed to ensure a fair trial to defendants.

MURDERED: Jenny Lin Part 1

In 1994, the brutal murder of a 14-year-old inside her parents' safe suburban house left a community shaken to its core, because not only had a bright and talented life been suddenly snuffed out, but police struggled to find a motive. And the more clues they uncovered, the more investigators realized the nightmare they were dealing with: Jenny Lin?s murder was more than a crime of opportunity ?it had been carefully planned. For nearly 30 years, Jenny?s murder has weighed on Alameda County and terrorized detectives as they?ve pondered the same question over and over since 1994: why Jenny?

MISSING: The Millbrook Twins

When twin sisters Jeannette and Dannette Millbrook go missing in Augusta, Georgia in 1990, police are quick to write them off as runaways?even though the signs point to something much more sinister.

And if not for a family that refused to give up? and a podcast that shed light on some of the injustices they?ve faced?we probably wouldn?t know anything about them. Because even though this is one of the only open cases of missing twins in the country?it took decades for them to get the national spotlight.

 

There is $50,000 reward being offered for information through August 2023. You can leave anonymous tips through www.themillbrooktwins.com or by calling 404-590-2975 or 706-821-1080.

PRECEDENT: Megan Kanka

When Megan Kanka went missing in 1994 her case exposed one of the holes in the sex offender registry. Yes, people were registered but that was only known to government officials, not to those living among potential predators. Had her parents known who was living right down the street from them Megan?s story might have ended differently. Instead, it set a precedent for community reporting.

PRECEDENT: Jacob Wetterling

When Jacob Wetterling went missing in 1989 one of the first thoughts police had, was to track down all the local violent sex offenders in the area to see if they could be potential suspects. But this was easier said than done because back then there was no centralized database for this sort of thing. Jacob?s case went unsolved for decades and his mom always wondered if her son fell through the cracks of a system without enough regulation. So, she worked to set a precedent that would require all sex offenders to be registered. Though, she would later go on to regret that work.

MURDERED: Linda Smith

?Audiochuck?s newest weekly show, The Deck, is hosted by Ashley Flowers and takes true-crime listeners through a deck of playing cards that is unlike any other.

For years, state prison systems and local law enforcement agencies across the U.S. have replaced the face cards of queens, kings and aces in traditional playing card decks with images of missing and murdered people. Investigators have passed these modified decks out in jails and prisons hoping that they will make their way into the hands of someone with answers. These are the coldest of cases where investigators have no choice but to show their hand in the hopes of getting killers to fold.

Join Ashley Flowers every Wednesday as she works with investigators and victims? families to recount the details of these cases in hopes that justice may finally be served.
