DEL CITY, Oklahoma -

New details surrounding the death of a man whose body was found in a Del City Motel.

Police are now searching for two suspects. A third suspect is in jail but on new charges.

According to police, 29-year-old Laycie Mason was charged with 2nd degree manslaughter, but that charge was dropped, and now Mason sits in jail on larceny charges.

Mason told police she witnessed Larry Allen become "short of breath" and fall to the bed and start, "snoring, gurgling, and become unresponsive."

"She started to shake him," said Lt. Ted Cleber with Del City Police. "He wasn't responding to her at all, so she panicked and left the room." 

Lt. Cleber said Mason also took Allen's wallet, cell phone and his late model red Chevrolet pickup.

"I think the first thing that stuck out to us was that there was no property there what so ever," said Lt. Cleber. "I mean, his wallet, keys, truck, everything was gone."

Police said the two checked in together at a Motel 6 off Tinker Diagonal on March 5, 2013. Mason said she met Allen on an Internet chat line.

On March 6, 2013, police were called to "room 135" at the motel. They found Allen's body inside, "kneeling next to the bed."

At the time, there were no signs of foul play, but Mason was charged with 2nd degree manslaughter, because she didn't call for help.

That charge has been dropped as police continue to build their case.

"We're currently looking at preceding with more charges," Lt. Cleber said.

Police are also looking for at least two other suspects in the case. Surveillance photos show one person of interest walking down the hallway of another motel.

It's also where Allen's cell phone was found more than 12 miles away from the Motel 6.

Police are still looking for Larry Allen's red Chevrolet pickup. It's an extended cab with Oklahoma license plate 246-GXL.

If you see it, you're asked to call police.
