Funeral set for 4-year-old girl
Funeral arrangements have been made for a Chickasha preschooler who died Thursday evening after the car she was in rolled down her driveway and hit a tree. Four-year-old Emily Danielle Geddes died after the crash outside her home in the 1300 block of S 14th. The funeral will be Tuesday night at Calvary Baptist Church in Chickasha. Family members said they aren’t interested in talking with the media about the accident. An obituary sent to The Oklahoman lists Emily’s parents as Daniel Geddes and Jeanie Goss Malone. Police and the Department of Human Services are investigating the girl’s death. Police say they are investigating what Malone was doing at the time of the crash and how it happened.
OFFICER INVOLVED IN SHOOTING
Oklahoma City Police are investigating an officer-involved shooting on the city’s south side. Police Capt. Steve McCool said an officer, whose name has not been released, responded to a call of a teenager carrying a gun about 9:15 p.m. Saturday at SW 45 and Walker Avenue. McCool said when the officer approached, the teen shot at the officer. The officer returned fire, McCool said, but McCool did not say how many rounds were released. The officer was not harmed. Police were searching the area for the suspect, who is described as a Hispanic male about 16 or 17 years old, wearing a black sweater with red on the back, dark jeans and white shoes. Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 235-7300.
Remains near lake prompt inquiry
A day after skeletal remains were found near Lake Wister, investigators continued to search for evidence. Authorities believe the remains were human because fabric was found at the scene, said Inspector Stan Florence of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation. The remains had been at the secluded location for "quite some time,” based on the level of decomposition, he said Saturday. At this stage in the investigation, Florence said it is impossible to determine a cause of death or the victim’s identity. Investigators are looking at whether there are any missing persons reports in the area, but Florence said authorities likely will have to rely on the medical examiner’s office to identify the remains.
