OKEMAH (AP) - Investigators looking into last month's killings of two girls just outside of Weleetka say they plan to release new details about their investigation.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is planning to hold a news conference on Monday outside the Okfuskee County Courthouse. They say they will release portions of a 911 call made by one of the girls' family members just after the girls' bodies were discovered. They also plan to discuss some of the investigative techniques being used to track the killer or killers.

The bullet-riddled bodies of 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker and 13-year-old Taylor Placker were discovered June 8 on a gravel road less than a half-mile from the house where they were staying.

Authorities say they have no suspect or motive in the killings.
