ANTLERS, Okla. (KXII) - OSBI agents arrived at Davey Jo Moore's home in Antlers on Wednesday afternoon to tell the family what had happened to him, and this came a day after he planned on celebrating his 10 year wedding anniversary with his wife.

"It didn't matter what he was going through at the time, he could help bring a smile to your face," said Whisenhunt.

Moore's stepdaughter Debra Whisenhunt and friend Tina Turner say they will remember him for his kindness, and sense of humor.

"He would give you the shirt off his back if he could, he was a giving person," said Turner.

"Then he would might make a joke about you wearing his shirt," said Whisenhunt.

"Yeah he would wouldn't he?" said Turner.

According to the arrest affidavit, Brian Dunlap, also known as Brian Mack, got into an argument with Moore on Saturday at his house because Moore had argued with Dunlap's mother, Misty Mack, who was living with the Moores.

The affidavit states that Barbara Moore, the victim's wife, was home when Dunlap and her husband argued.

She told investigators Dunlap told Moore to come to a bedroom then she heard a loud bang, heard her husband moaning. Dunlap came out saying it was an accident and he did not mean to kill Moore.

The document states that Dunlap told Barbara Moore he put the body in a trash can and took him to Cloudy, Oklahoma where "no one would find him."

"Nobody deserves to die in that manner. I don't care who you are, friend or foe, nobody deserves that," said Turner.

On Monday OSBI says a hunter found Moore's burned body in that area.

Authorities were able to identify Moore from a tattoo on his forearm.

Dunlap was arrested for first degree murder, while his mother was arrested for accessory after the fact.

"They need justice, and they need to be punished for what they did," said Turner.

OSBI says the investigation is ongoing.
