Cold case story is just one more example of depth of coverage in The Oklahoman’s newsroom

We’ve had this story on our site for most of the day today. Currently, it one of our top stories on the site just below the weather coverage.

But I just came across it and think it’s a perfect example to highlight today.

Robert Medley served as the reporter who pulled together this cold case tale of two sisters who have been missing since 1985.

He reported. He wrote. He shot video.

That’s a lot of work for one person. But in the end, the readers of The Oklahoman and NewsOK.com win. And it’s the type of multimedia reporting that our reporters are doing every day  — and they’ve done it for years.

This feature is just a reminder of that.

Although there was no evidence of foul play in 1985, some family members think the girls — who were known to hitchhike frequently — were victims of a crime.

This story is just one example that shows the depth of coverage The Oklahoman’s newsroom produces on a daily basis.

Robert’s story was published on all our platforms on the same day that we displayed investigations on workers’ compensation, features on the history of black freemasons in Oklahoma and breaking news on the Carina Saunders case.

And that’s just to name a few of the big items we’ve covered. There’s plenty more as you dig in deeper to NewsOK.com or Oklahoman.com.
