The OSBI is offering a $5,000 reward for the weapon. Brown said the current gun owner is not a suspect in the girls' deaths.

The Oklahoma City Gun Show is scheduled for Saturday and Sunday at State Fair Park.

The serial number of the Glock is EKG463US. Anyone with information about the gun is asked to call OSBI at (800) 522-8017.

Kevin Sweat is being held in the Seminole County jail on a murder charge in connection with the death of his girlfriend, Ashley Taylor, 23.

According to court records, charred remains believed to be those of Ashley Taylor were found Aug. 4 on a farm belonging to Sweat's father.

Wayne Woodyard, Kevin Sweat's attorney in the Ashley Taylor case, said he could not comment about whether his client has been questioned in the Weleetka case.

“The concern we have in reference to the Taylor case is the more of that speculation that is done on the Weleetka case, the harder that is going to be to get a fair trial in the Taylor case,” Woodyard said this month.
