According to police, the victim's head was almost entirely severed from his body. He also had other wounds consistent with the suspect's weapon, which is described as a large knife or sword.

Police said Marin admitted to the murder. He had a number of reasons for it, but police would only say that Marin had fantasized about committing multiple homicides, and the victim was one of his targets.

According to Stillwater police, at this time they have found no evidence that this homicide was tied to any radical religious motive. 

Crockett was the son of an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper.

Marin will be arraigned Thursday afternoon. Police said he has been charged with one count of first-degree murder.
