Police: Man Found Dead In SE OKC Apartment
A metro family is searching for answers into their loved one’s death while Oklahoma City police search for an accused killer.
Police were called on Friday to 59-year-old Raimonido Crittenden’s apartment near Southeast 44th Street and Sunnylane Road to investigate.
According to police, the victim had trauma to his body consistent with homicide. Police said the victim was last seen three days before he was found dead.
“I just don’t know why they done him like that,” said Lonzetta Crittenden, victim’s sister. “Cause he’s not a bad person.”
Raimonido’s body was discovered by one of his friends. The witness immediately called Crittenden saying his apartment appeared ransacked.
“I said won’t [sic] you go right back in there and look through the whole house,” said Crittenden. “And when she went in there and looked through, looked through the whole house that’s when she seen [sic] him in the bathtub. She seen [sic] his feet.”
She said it looked like her brother was stabbed to death but first tried to fight off the attacker.
“Looked like he tried to fight for his life,” said Crittenden. “I know my brother he would do that.”
She said the accused attacker possibly tried to cover up the crime.
“He’s in the bathtub covered up with clothes,” said Crittenden.
When investigators were called out to the victim's apartment, Crittenden said she was questioned because she was one of the first people to know about the victim’s death.
She has since notified his three children, numerous other family members and friends.
“All I want is closure,” said Crittenden. “And find out if they can find his killer.”
So far, no arrests have been made.
