OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City police say $10,000 worth of jewelry was stolen from one of four people found shot to death last week inside a burning home.

Police Sgt. Gary Knight said Thursday that 32-year-old Casey Barrientos of Oklahoma City was wearing a large diamond-and-white-gold necklace, along with matching earrings and a bracelet.

Knight said the jewelry has not been recovered.

"It's not uncommon for somebody after stealing something like that to try to trade it for either drugs or cash or whatever, but, uh, we certainly believe it's still out there and believe somebody knows where it is," Knight said.

Barrientos was discovered shot to death at the home, along with three women, including a prostitute featured on the HBO reality series "Cathouse."

Twenty-eight-year-old David Allen Tyner of Locust Grove was arrested on murder complaints earlier this week, but Knight says investigators don't believe he acted alone. Tyner has not been formally charged.
