WELEETKA, Okla. (AP) - State investigators say they believe two people are responsible for the killing of two young girls on a country road near Weleetka.
Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jessica Brown said Wednesday two different caliber weapons were used to kill 13-year-old Taylor Paschal-Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker.
Because two weapons were used, Brown says investigators believe there were two killers. Brown declined to say what type of weapons were used.
The girls were discovered Sunday afternoon. The state medical examiner's office says each suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the head and chest.
Brown says a reward for information leading to an arrest in the case has been increased to $25,000.
