Oklahoma City Police are looking for a Chickasha woman that bilked a 91-year-old WWII veteran and his wife out of tens of thousands of dollars.  

Police said 44-year-old Mylissa Turner preyed on Ivan Stewart and his wife’s kindness over the past three years. 

Stewart, who’s a retired minister, estimates Turner has coaxed the couple out of $90,000 total. 

Police said Turner also illegally cashed more than $300,000 in insurance checks, after a home the Stewarts had agreed to sell her burned in the past few years. 

“I just don’t want it to happen to anyone else,” Ivan Stewart told News 9 Thursday.  I guess I was misled.” 

Police went to Chickasha to arrest Turner Thursday, but she wasn’t home.
