TULSA (AP) - Authorities have entered a 10th day without suspects or a motive in the June 8 slayings of two young girls along a back country road near Weleetka.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jessica Brown said Wednesday investigators are pursuing hundreds of leads in the killings of 13-year-old Taylor Paschal-Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker.

The girls were shot in the head and chest with weapons of two different calibers, leading investigators to think two gunmen may have been involved.

Also Wednesday, the state medical examiner's office said full autopsy reports on the girls could be a few weeks away as further tests are conducted. has disabled the comments for this article.
