Reward In Weleetka Killings Upped To $160,000

Taylor Paschal-Placker, Skyla Whitaker Killed On June 8, 2008

They are coming for you, Mikey. Keep watching over your shoulder...

July 30, 2009
OKEMAH, Okla. -- Two oil executives pledged to add $120,000 to an existing $40,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of whoever killed two girls near Weleetka in June 2008.

At a Thursday morning news conference, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jessica Brown said the $160,000 reward is good for the next 90 days. After that, the pledge would have to be renewed, a standard procedure.

Thirteen-year-old Taylor Paschal-Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker were gunned down June 8, 2008, along a dirt road in rural Okfuskee County, about 70 miles south of Tulsa.

No arrests have been made in the case and authorities still are searching for a motive.

Brown said leads in the case continue to come in and that the investigation is moving forward.

At the Thursday news conference, Brown said agents have been looking into crimes in other states to determine whether they have any commonality with the Weleetka killings.

Can anyone tell me why the OSBI and the grand jury would accept Mikey's and Dustyn's alibis for each other? Supposedly MG and DD were at Walmart when these murders occurred. What appeared on the Walmart tapes?

Take a look at these wannabe gangsta's MySpace pages. Aren't gangsters involved in drive by shootings?
