OKLAHOMA CITY – Agents with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation are now looking for a handgun that was used in the Weleetka girls' homicides in 2008.

According to the OSBI, they are offering up to a $5,000 reward for the gun, identified as the Glock .40 model 22 handgun. They have determined the serial number to be EKG463US.

According to the OSBI, on June 8, 2008, 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker and 13-year-old Taylor Paschal Placker were gunned down about 100 yards from Taylor's rural home just outside Weleetka in Okfuskee County.
