Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
Authorities say a local man was found dead in Springer, Oklahoma this afternoon, and that they're investigating his death as a homicide.
Carter County Sheriff Ken Grace said Jeremy Kildow was found dead in a field off Highway 53 and Butler St. around 3:30.
He says it appears Kildow was stabbed to death.
Grace said they are currently interviewing people of interest, and that the investigation started with a call.
"We responded out there and we did find a white male who appeared to be DOA at the scene," said Sheriff Grace.
Kildow had recently turned 27.
