After killings, tragedy links Oklahoma kin of victims

BY RON JACKSON Published: October 4, 2009

/> "I’ve just been a wreck. It’s been four months, and I still haven’t been able to return to work. I just tell people, ‘This could be your day care provider’s husband or someone who works in your business.’ They’re still out there. I feel depressed sometimes, but I can’t give up hope. Somebody out there knows something. Just why aren’t they talking?”

A $15,000 reward offered in connection with Dighton’s killing produced no telephone calls, Wilson said. Still, she holds out hope despite the realization her mother’s case might be going cold.

"My father died in May, and I’ve had to handle the estate,” Wilson said. "The first time I had to go back into my mother’s home (with the Latimer County sheriff) it brought back all those emotions. That was hard. Finally, after all those months, I just had an emotional meltdown. It was almost too much to take.”
