CARTER COUNTY, Okla. – Twenty-four hours after authorities found a woman’s body in Healdton, deputies have arrested a suspect.

Carter County Sheriff’s deputies arrested 21-year-old Roy Gene Bassett just after 3 o’clock Thursday afternoon. Bassett stands accused of illegal dumping of a body.

On Thursday, Carter County deputies found the body of 26-year-old Brandi Baird near West Lake Road in Healdton. The body was discovered by an oil worker. Authorities believe Baird was dead for a few days before her body was found.

Now Carter County authorities believe any sort of incident regarding Baird’s death happened at Bassett’s home in Healdton

Authorities are still trying to find out exactly what caused Baird’s death.

    lets say we all have at least one person in this world that we would like to see go away forever..use whatever poision you choose...and you see that person not breathing...do you get dressed and go to work? or do you call 911? even a 4 year old knows to call 911..think about it.you see a dead body and go to work not just one day but two..and then your arrested at your job...but to top it all off your allowed to go back to your same job? come on if he was that crazy would he be allowed to do the job he does? I think he is smarter than hes been given credit for..hes going to walk on this one..but the family of the young girl has to live with the injustic of this whole mess.it doesnt matter what anyone thinks about what brandi did or didnt do... there is still a family that has lost a loved one..

    Only in Carter County...thank you judge for setting his bond so low, now we can all worry about who he might decide to "dump" next.

    Here's my GUESS at what happened... He didn't kill her. Wakes up, panics, thinks what he should do, realizes that he's waited too long and now is afraid to call the cops... Normal? Who knows unless you've been there.

    I don't believe that what has happened is ok. What I do believe is that this story is disproportionate to the truth. Believe it or not there is probably a whole other part to the story that has not been told. Trial by jury where the whole truth is told will be the only way to know it.
