Two men have been arrested in connection with the homicide of a Creek County man whose body was found floating in floodwater outside Mannford on May 30.

The Creek County Sheriff’s Office requested help from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation after deputies discovered evidence that 37-year-old Sean Michael Henderson’s death resulted from foul play.

An anonymous tip led investigators to a west Tulsa residence, where agents say Henderson had gotten into an argument with the resident. According to an OSBI release, investigators think 63-year-old Paul Edward Carrier shot Henderson in the backyard during the argument. Carrier and 45-year-old David W. Davidson then are accused of disposing of Henderson’s body in a flooded area near Mannford.

Davidson was arrested June 4 at his home in Tulsa without incident. Carrier was arrested the following day. Both are in the Creek County jail on complaints of first-degree murder and desecration of a human corpse.
