WELEETKA — Several suspects are being eyed by the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation in connection with the shooting deaths of two young girls northeast of town two years ago.

Bureau spokeswoman Jessica Brown wouldn't give any more details during a Tuesday morning news conference at the scene of the June 8, 2008, killings.

Brown did, however, caution that the OSBI has interviewed scores of people in connection with the case.

Her announcement that several suspects are being looked at in the deaths of Taylor Paschal-Placker, 13, and Skyla Jade Whitaker, 11, did give their families attending the news conference encouragement, the girls' fathers said.
