On a cold December evening in 2008, a passing motorist noticed what he thought was a drunk, passed out on the curb outside a home near Broken Arrow.

In 30-degree weather, the man was wearing jeans and thermal underwear, but no shirt.

The body of Justin Childress, 27, felt warm, but the passer-by couldn't find a pulse.

"It was too late," says Chanin Cutsinger, Childress' older sister, who rushed to the house after getting a frantic call from another family member.

With the crime scene outside of city limits, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation immediately took over the case, with the first detective arriving within two hours.

"Unfortunately," Cutsinger says, "if anybody in Oklahoma is counting on the OSBI to investigate anything, they're going to be sorely disappointed."
