The Deck

For years, some law enforcement agencies have replaced the faces of traditional playing card decks with images of missing and murdered people and distributed those cards in prisons hoping inmates would come forward with information needed to crack these cold cases wide open. Now, audiochuck is dealing you in. Each week, we will be working with investigators and family members to bring you the details of some of the coldest cases from around the country in hopes that someone listening can finally bring these victims the justice they deserve.

Owachige Osceola (8 of Diamonds, Oklahoma)

Our card this week is Owachige Osceola (8 of Diamonds, Oklahoma) 

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

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]
