Investigation continues into 1997 double slaying in Enid

The bodies of Tramon Johnson, 18, and Michael Colbert, 19, were discovered on Feb. 25, 1997. Each had been shot in the head and their room was in shambles because of a struggle.

“It was a difficult case because of the people involved, the witnesses and the lack of cooperation,” said Enid Police Chief Brian O'Rourke. “It's obviously still an open case. There are people who are out there that still know and there are people who are out that are responsible.”

Tramon Johnson's mother, Yvette Hicks, described her son's death as “execution-style.”

“My child was shot in the back of the head,” Hicks said. “They had weapons and he (Johnson) didn't know they were coming and it was just a mess.

“This is my 16th year, and I'm just asking for someone to come forward. They don't have to talk to the police, they don't have to give their name to the Enid Police Department. I'm not trying to send anyone to prison. I just want to have closure for who killed my son.” has disabled the comments for this article.
