CARTER COUNTY, Okla. -- Investigators in Carter County are offering a reward for information related to the death of a woman in December.

The body of 26-year-old Brandi Baird was found near Healdton in December. Roy Gene Bassett was arrested days later on charges he dumped Baird’s body near an oil lease. Bassett is currently free on a $50,000 bond.

If you have any information call Ardmore Crime Stoppers at 580-504-4529. Investigators are offering a $1,000 reward.

Authorities arrested Roy Gene Bassett two days after the body of Brandi Baird was discovered in Healdton.

So far investigators say that 26-year-old Brandi Baird died at Bassett’s residence in Healdton.

Even though investigators have linked Bassett to Baird’s death, no evidence has been found to charge Bassett with more than a felony charge of dumping Baird’s body.

District Attorney Craig Ladd says that’s the reason why his bond was set at $50,000.

Ladd also said that full results from autopsy are not due for several weeks.

Bassett’s next court appearance is set for January 22.
