Police Arrest Man, Find Body In NW OKC
OKLAHOMA CITY - Police have arrested a man on a murder complaint and found a body in northwest Oklahoma City.
Jimmy Vongphakdy, 36, was arrested Wednesday evening at a home in the 2200 block of NW 34 Street near Pennsylvania Avenue.
Police received a tip about a body in the backyard of the residence. When officers arrived at the home, they detained everyone in the home.
Police were at the home Thursday morning to investigate the death.
The body was released to the state medical examiner's office and they will determine the cause of death.
The body has not identified, police said.
Neighbors said they last saw Vongphakdy's girlfriend at his home about three days ago, but Vongphakdy said she had not been there in three weeks, according to court documents.
One of the people police detained was later identified as Tony Traver, a suspect in Saturday's deadly stabbing. Traver was arrested in connection with the death of 27-year-old Evan Stehle.
Anyone with information is asked to call the homicide tip line at 405-297-1200.
