OSBI looks into death

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents are looking into a suspicious death in Cherokee County. The body of Bradford Brooks, 56, was found by a family member Wednesday afternoon outside his home at 19724 W Cookson Bend Road. The body was taken to the state medical examiner's office for autopsy. No other details were released.



Impersonation charges filed

A man arrested on two complaints after he was shot by police Wednesday faces an additional complaint of criminal impersonation, authorities say. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation initially reported Michael O'Mara, 24, of Wichita, Kan., was arrested on complaints of assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a controlled dangerous substance. The man who identified himself as O'Mara actually is Kenneth Lee Ilderton, 26, of Wichita, Kan., the OSBI said. Ilderton is being held in the Craig County jail on an additional complaint of criminal impersonation. He also had several felony warrants for his arrest, authorities said. Vinita and Big Cabin police officers fired at Ilderton's vehicle as he drove toward them near the U.S. 69 and State Highway 66 junction, the OSBI reported. The OSBI has not released the names of the officers involved.
