For the second time in less than two-years, yellow crime scene tape surrounds the Bever home in Broken Arrow. In the summer of 2015, this home was the scene of a mass murder. Two teenager brothers, Robert and Michael Bever, were accused of killing their parents and three siblings. Early Saturday morning, the vacant home at the Indian Springs Country Club burned.
Fire officials say the blaze broke out about 3:30 Saturday morning and gutted the house before the fire was brought under control. There is no word yet on the cause of the fire.
Last month, Broken Arrow City Councilor Mike Lester announced a fund raising campaign to buy the house and demolish it. His goal was to turn to land into a memorial garden.
Robert Bever entered a guilty plea to the murders in Tulsa County District Court and was sentenced to a life prison term. The younger brother, Michael, is facing trial this summer.
