‘Person of Interest’ in Death and Dismemberment of Four Oklahoma Men Found in Florida

A guy who has been identified by police as a “person of interest” in the murders of four Oklahoma bikers was detained on Tuesday in central Florida, more than 1,100 miles away, according to officials.

Reporters were informed by Okmulgee police a day earlier that they planned to examine Joseph Kennedy over the murders of Mark Chastain, Billy Chastain, Mike Sparks, and Alex Stevens, all of whom were 32 years old.

More than a week ago, the pals were last seen riding their bicycles; they were then discovered shot and dismembered in the Deep Fork River, according to authorities. Kennedy, according to them, had vanished.

On the evening of October 9, it was thought that the males rode bicycles away from an Okmulgee residence. The formal cause of death, according to the police chief, is still under investigation, although all four of the males had gunshot wounds, and their corpses had been severed.

A local scrap yard owner who was questioned by police on Friday was later reported missing and potentially suicidal, according to Prentice. Kennedy is thought to be this individual.

According to an Okmulgee police statement, Kennedy was detained on Monday in Daytona Beach Shores, Florida, in a vehicle “that was reported stolen to the Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office.”

He was also arrested for a shooting that occurred in Okmulgee in 2012, according to the police.

According to authorities, the remains were found Friday after a bystander saw something odd in the river next to a bridge. According to Prentice, the bicycles have not yet been located.

The males were all from Okmulgee, which is located approximately 40 miles (65 kilometers) south of Tulsa and has a population of roughly 11,000 people.
