The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation released photos of three tattoos on the unidentified victim's body. Agents hope someone will recognize the body art and call authorities. The tattoo on the victim's right arm has three initials. The tattoo on the victim's left arm is the symbol of a cross. There's also a tattoo of an 8-ball with a skull on the victim's calf.

Sheriff Dougherty says the murder is probably gang and drug related. The sheriff says after talking to several witnesses in Lincoln County, Oklahoma City, and Edmond, investigators believe the same suspects responsible for the murder, are also connected to a recent home invasion, an abduction, and a kidnapping.

"It appears a bunch of these folks started getting high about 5 a.m. Monday morning, and they haven't been to bed since," Dougherty said.
