Billboard seeks hint in Weleetka slayings

HENRYETTA, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation plans to erect a billboard to spread the word about a $30,000 reward offered in the case surrounding the deaths of two Weleetka girls.

Oklahoma Crime Stoppers, the OSBI and Lamar Outdoor Advertising have teamed to spread the word about a reward in the case surrounding the deaths of Taylor Placker and Skyla Whitaker.

Lamar employees plan to begin posting the billboard tomorrow morning near the Henryetta exit on Interstate 40, one mile west of U.S. 75 on the north side of the highway, facing east. OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown says a second billboard on the opposite side of the road will be added later.

Brown says someone in the community who likely drives the I-40 route knows something about the deaths.
