On Friday, October 14, 2022, the bodies of four Oklahoma men were discovered in the Deep Fork River.

All the males had gunshot wounds, and their bodies had been mutilated, but the cause of death is still unknown. The authorities state that the men were discovered that Friday after someone spotted something suspicious in the river.

The bodies were identified as Mark Chastain, 32, Billy Chastain, 30, Mike Sparks, 32, and Alex Stevens, 29. On October 9, they were last sighted riding their bicycles. According to Okmulgee Police Chief Joe Prentice, the bicycles the men were riding are still missing. One of the victim’s phones was also discovered by investigators in a salvage yard owned by Joe Kennedy, the person of interest.

After Kennedy was reported missing over the weekend, police stated his car had been discovered in Morris, a nearby town.

In Florida’s Daytona Beach Shores, Kennedy was detained. Kennedy is being returned to Okmulgee by police.

Kennedy has gained their attention, but they have not yet designated him as a suspect in the killings. The investigation is still being conducted.
