Body Discovered In McClain Co. Being Investigated As Suspicious …

BLANCHARD, Oklahoma –

A body was found yesterday in a hidden area off Highway 76 on the northern edge of Blanchard and the death is being investigated as suspicious.

McClain Sheriff Don Hewitt said the body was discovered in the brush about 50 feet from the street. 

“The body was decomposed so bad that we could not determine” the identity, said Sheriff Hewitt, but he has an idea of who this person may be. “We do know that we have been looking for an individual who has been missing for about two weeks in this area.”

It seems to fit the case. Hewitt says 31-year-old Dustin Foulks disappearance was reported to his office in early October.

“We’ve had kind of a general area but, again, we had so many conflicting reports coming in so our search area was enlarged.”

The medical examiner has yet to identify the victim.

Foulks’ cousins were

Police investigate 3rd suspicious death in Tampa, Florida

Police believe the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old autistic man who took the wrong bus home from work on Thursday night is linked to two other suspicious deaths in a Florida neighborhood.

The deaths, which took place in the same neighborhood over the past 10 days, prompted Tampa police to warn residents in the Seminole Heights neighborhood not to walk alone at night. And they’ve asked residents to leave porch light and other external lights on at night.

“Now we have someone terrorizing the neighborhood,” Interim Tampa police Chief Brian Dugan said during a Friday news conference.

He said the three victims have no ties to one another. Dugan asked the public to look at surveillance video of a man who was walking in the area on Oct. 9 when Benjamin Mitchell, 22, was killed. On Oct. 13, Monica Caridad Hoffa, 32, was found dead in a vacant lot.

On Thursday night, officers were
