Prosecutors discuss Oklahoma cold case
BRISTOW, Okla. (AP) - Prosecutors say the suspected sabotage of an undercover surveillance attempt in a 21-year cold case shouldn't cause a significant delay in the case.
Investigators were hoping that 59-year-old Grover Prewitt Jr. of Bristow could gather evidence in the 1992 disappearance of three females from Oklahoma City. Their bodies were found last month near Jennings in northeastern Oklahoma.
Prewitt was charged with being an accessory after the fact of first-degree murder, even though no one has been charged in the deaths. An agent with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said it appears Prewitt tried to hamper part of their investigation.
Lincoln County District Attorney Richard Smothermon told The Associated Press that more could be released about the case ``within the next couple of weeks'' as more evidence matches up.
