Heartbroken mom reveals missing Oklahoma bikers were shot and 'chopped in half at their waist'
OKMULGEE, OKLAHOMA: Four friends from Oklahoma who went missing on October 9 and the police were puzzled by the mysterious disappearance. The case took a turn for the worse when police found multiple human remains in a river in Okmulgee. Okmulgee Police Department Chief Joe Prentice informed the families of the victims, however, the remains are yet to be identified.
Mark Chastain, 32, his brother Billy Chastain, 30, Mike Sparks, 32, and Alex Stevens, 29, went out on a planned outing on their bikes and have not been seen since then.
Now, the mother of one of the victims has revealed chilling details of the condition the bodies were found in. The bodies of these men had gunshot wounds and were chopped in half at their waists, Alex's mother Teresa has revealed.
In an interview with Daily Mail, Teresa Steven revealed the horrific conditions the bodies of the missing men were found in. She said, "My son and his friends were first shot multiple times, chopped in half at their waist and then thrown into the Deep Fork River to rot away." The grieving mother revealed that the alleged murderer of these men also "chopped off one of their arms" and that she was having a hard time dealing with the tragic news. She continued, "It's something your read about on the news, about what they did to my son and his friends. To chop a body is half is what the drug cartels do to the dead. Whoever did this clearly wanted to send a message."
Alex worked at a local healthcare facility as a dietary aide. Teresa last saw him on October 9 as he left to visit his friends. She explained that when Alex did not show up for work the next day, she filed a missing person case. Teresa said, "My son never misses his work shift and he had to work at 11 pm that Sunday. He doesn't own a car, so I take him to work. When he didn't show up for me to take him to work on Sunday evening, I became worried. A few hours later I went to the Okmulgee Police department and reported him missing." She said at the time he went missing, Alex did not have his mobile phone on him but was carrying his backpack and wallet.
While no arrests have been made yet, police have named Joe Kennedy, 67, as a person of interest. He is the owner of a local scrap yard. Chief Prentice told the outlet, "Right now Joe Kennedy is a person of interest. We want to talk to him about the four men who were murdered." Prentice explained, "From what we've put together so far is that the four men left Billy's house on 6th Street on their bikes around 5:30 pm on October 9 and went to an area near a salvage yard on 20 street about one mile away. Joe Kennedy is the owner of the salvage yard." Kennedy is currently being held in a Volusia County Jail in Florida for motor vehicle theft and was arrested by Dayton Beach Shores police on October 16.
