Anadarko, OK – Prosecutor warns clergy after pastor killing
ANADARKO, Okla. (AP) An Oklahoma district attorney has warned pastors to take security precautions in a town where a preacher was brutally killed inside her own church.
Prosecutor Bret Burns held a closed-door session with the pastors on Wednesday to talk about the case. The body of 61-year-old Carol Daniels was found Sunday in the Christ Holy Sanctified Church in Anadarko. A preliminary autopsy found she died of "multiple sharp force injuries."
Burns says the crime scene was the most horrific he's seen in nearly 20 years as a prosecutor. He and the Oklsahoma State Bureau of Investigation have declined to discuss details of the case including a possible motive or what evidence was found at the church.
