LOCUST GROVE — The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is offering the maximum award allowed by law for information about a Cherokee County double-homicide committed nearly five years ago.
The OSBI announced a $10,000 reward for information leading the arrest and conviction of the shooter or shooters who killed Jack and Elaine Denney. The couple were found dead in their home south of Locust Grove on Christmas Day 2007.
Investigators believe Jack Denney, 65, and Elaine Denney, 66, were killed Dec. 23. They both suffered multiple gunshot wounds to their heads and torsos, agents said previously.
“Agents have followed dozens of leads in the past years,” spokeswoman Jessica Brown said. “But investigators need the public’s help to develop new leads. We believe someone who lives in the area may have information that could help agents solve this case.”
Anyone with any information is asked to call the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.
