OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has released an incident report from police officers who initially found a pastor dead in an Anadarko church.
According to the report, officer Ashley Burrus discovered Carol Daniels about 12:02 p.m. Aug. 23 after a couple asked police to check on Daniels. The report states that Burrus entered the south door of Worthy Temple Christ Holy Sanctified Church and noticed Daniels’ body.
Capt. Dwaine Miller stated he saw the victim “lying prone on the floor just inside the door to the sanctuary.”
The 61-year-old Daniels suffered multiple gashes to her neck and throat, as well as stab wounds to her chest, back, stomach and hands.
OSBI inspector Steve Neuman said Tuesday the reward in the case is now $15,000.
