MCALESTER — Pittsburg County authorities said Wednesday they are expanding the scope of their investigation into the death of a 20-year-old Owasso woman at Narconon Arrowhead drug rehabilitation center.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation turned over its investigation into the July 19 death of Stacy Murphy to county authorities.
“After looking at the OSBI report and additional witness statements, the district attorney’s office has requested the sheriff’s office to further investigate,” Assistant District Attorney Richard Hull said.
It was the third death at the Narconon center in the past nine months. Hillary Holten, 21 of Carrollton, Texas, died April 11; Gabriel Graves, 32, of Claremore, died Oct. 26.
“The district attorney’s office requested all reports on all three victims,” Sheriff Joel Kerns said.
Stacy Murphy’s father, Robert Murphy, said he was “grateful the law enforcement will continue to give full diligence in the investigation of her death that will lead to the prosecution of those who are responsible at Narconon.”
“From my preliminary investigation — it is sad facts,” said Gary Richardson, attorney for the Murphy family. “It shouldn’t happen to anyone. In particular if they are trying to get help.”
