Car recovered from Oklahoma lake shows sign of wreck

The mud-caked 1969 Camaro is believed to be that of Jimmy Allen Williams, who disappeared from Sayre Nov. 20, 1970, after telling family members he was going with two other teenagers to a football game in Elk City.

The 1952 Chevrolet that was recovered is believed to be that which carried a Canute woman plus two men from Elk City and Sayre to their deaths. Hoyle said it appeared that car was not in an accident.

“It most likely rolled into the water,” Hoyle told the newspaper. “It had no engine damage and no undercarriage damage at all. We did find a wheel well that was damage, but it was old damage.”

The Chevrolets, which entered the water about a year apart, were found side-by-side in water about 12 feet deep and about 50 feet from the end of the ramp.
