Person of interest sought in deaths of 2 in central Oklahoma


STROUD, Okla. (AP) — Authorities say they are looking for a person of interest in the slayings of two people in central Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says police officers discovered the bodies of 65-year-old Mark Pittman and 63-year-old Pauletta Pittman about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in their home in Stroud, about 52 miles (84 kilometers) northeast of Oklahoma City. Authorities have not said how they were killed.

OSBI investigators say they are looking for a person of interest who was living in the home at the time the couple was murdered. Law enforcement authorities say they have been unable to reach him and that he may be driving Pauletta Pittman’s car, which is missing.

The OSBI says a cause of death has not yet been determined by the state Medical Examiner’s Office.
