"...I do not know what is being done in the death of Glen Brownlee of Wynnewood, but I am livid that ********** has not been looked at as a possible suspect..." KT: Pauls Valley

"...Can you tell me, if any of you kniow what the status is of the the man who was murdered in Wynnewood. It occurred last Septemberand I do not know if anyone has been charged..." GF: Pauls Valley

You are most likely referring to Wynnewood resident, Mr. Glen Brownlee. Brownlee's body was discovered by Wynnewood PD on September 29th, 2011 at his Long Street home. He had been beaten to death. Since then, local police as well as Garvin County Sheriff's Deputies along with agents of the OSBI have been working feverishly to solve the crime, although as of this writing, no one has yet been charged. Based on our insight into the matter, we are confident that it will be solved in good order. Mr. Brownlee was a well liked man in his town and his friends and neighbors are eager for justice in the matter. See below for a poem written about Glen by a family friend and recently shared with us. Thou shalt not get away with it...--XI

Glenn Woods Brownlee
1-6-1927  9-29-2011

Never knew him in his youth
by the time I had the privilage
He was pretty long in the tooth
He had lots of stories
that seemed to go nowhere
but now that I think about it
they all did lead somewhere
we just all need to care

He was the favorite uncle
amongst the family youth
A shopping trip with him
was a treat for your sweet tooth
But that was just one side
He was also one hell of a hand
At fixing and mending all
the tools the farm demands.

A life cut short near it's end
A tragedy and a sin
And act of cowdice
and a play that no one wins
We'll alway rememember your love
Rest in Peace my friend.

The struggle to understand why
will haunt me to my dieing day
The effort to carry on
will daunt me in every way
The loss of you
Is something that will always stay
I can only hope that with time
It will slowly fade away

...we saw the latest on Channel 5 this morning and caught channel 9 at dinner. Confusion over why Collie Trant (? spelling) did not amendment the awutopsy previously and who did the original?..." ERHA: Pauls Valley

Dr. Collie Trant himself, former Chief Medical Examiner of Oklahoma performed an exhumation autopsy on Chanda Turner's remains per a court order by a Garvin County judge in December of 2009. [No autopsy had previously been performed on Chanda when she died by a gunshot in July, 2000.] Present also, as per the same court order was Dr. Robert Bux, a Colorado pathologist hired by the Turner family. Bux viewed all prodecures and findings and concurred with Dr. Trant that Chanda's death was quite obviously a "homicide made to look like a suicide." Dr. Trant was unable to amend the permanent record to reflect this new finding due to his termination by the OCME soon thereafter.--XI

"...I know the 'name' of the new law but what is the actual statuatory number or what have you? How do I find it?..." OPA: Oklahoma City

2011 Senate Bill 250 as amended and titled as the 'Chanda Turner Reform Act' makes changes to OS Title 63 Sections 942 and 942A. Given that it is a brand new law, it may be some weeks before it is published online in all the on demand court records systems etc but it should be soon.--XI

"...I pray that the Deviney family finds peace and a just end to their suffering, soon. I don't recall the date of Sheila's death but thinking it was cold and at this time of year..." EL: Maysville

Sheila Deviney was murdered in her front room on January 6th, 2004, eight years ago this month.--XI

"...I have not heard much about the Chanda Act since it took effect. Are there any updates?. ******** and ********* don't seem to be less nervous, I'm happy to report..." ATG: Pauls Valley

At last count, nearly 20 other families had filed appeals under the provisions of the Chanda Turner Reform Act besides the Turner Family on behalf of Chanda. Several dozen more statewide were in the process of preparing afidavits as well. The appeals are to be heard in Oklahoma County District Court and will commence as soon as their already crowded docket schedule will allow. The wheels of justice move slowly but they do turn.--XI

"...I don't understand why in blazes the DA made a deal between two murderers. (Haley and Johnson)Lasiness. Stupid. A great part of the problem in GC is that the elected DA is in CC far away from the sticks out here. Out of touch.." PRVET: Pauls Valley

Any issues with an elected official such as our District Attorney, Mr. Mashburn, can potentially be rectified at the next general election. Meanwhile, given the nature of the Sims case as known to the public and especially the particulars involving the two co-defendents, Roland Brent Hatley and J.J. Johnson, securing a twenty year conviction (17 years to be served per statute minimum) with the stroke of a pen and gaining leverage over another defendent is certainly expeditious and efficient to say the least. Despite anyone's misgivings, trials cost money, the 21st District is in a recent slump on batting average and therefore plea bargaining is always going to be a reality.--XI

"...This proves my point exactly. The police can solve a murder when they so desire to, especially when they don't have ******************* and *********** all up in their crime scene making deals at the gate..." DU: Pauls Valley

Yes. Next hearing on the matter is January 8th.--XI

[multiple entries] "...ya'll heard yet that Steve Brooks is now at Lindsay PD? Staying in practice, I guess. Do you think he'll re-run for his old office next time around..." BN/PN: Lindsay

"...Is Brooks actually a Lindsay officer now..." KRT: Maysville

XI has received numerous e-mails and other reports concerning this issue, several claiming to be eye witnesses to him performing police work in Lindsay. In an in-person conversation with Mr. Brooks himself some weeks ago, he indicated to one XI member that he had no intentions to run for Sheriff at the present time. Furthermore, he stated plainly that while he had said he would previously to other individuals, he did so mostly to shorten and/or redirect negative conversations regarding the last election. He admitted to working for Lindsay PD as a reserve officer for approximately one month before resigning due to the extra time required beyond his normal work week. Calls to the City of Lindsay and to the Reserve Captain at the Lindsay Police Department have not been returned as yet.--XI

XI Edit: Recently, City of Lindsay officials confirmed in person that Mr. Brooks was at one time on the reserve roster but was no longer and had not been for some time. In fact, it was not known to them if he actually ever did any work for the city in any capacity before leaving the department. LPD Police personnel refused to discuss the matter at all and refused to confirm or deny any association whatsoever.--XI

"...When is the Chanda case going to court? I look forward to it..." ELAM: Purcell

Since it is the flagship case under the newly created law, it will be the one that endures all the hurdles, setbacks, delays and unknowns (much like the case did in the State Legislature). It is currently being scheduled per a variety of factors and we will be publisize it when finalized.--XI

[Multiple entries] "...I've sent several notes regarding **************** and have not seen anything updated. Is this part of the site locked due to the Sheila Deviney case?..." RA/TA: Maysville

Yes and no. The latest information on the Sheila Deviney case did require us by request to change our procedures for a short period but the main culprit was a new tool used to filter e-mail. We installed it to try and lessen the time spent tossing out spam, intentionally bad information and overly inflammatory material. It worked too well but it is since fixed although there will be a gap in some of the feedback until we catch up. Thanks for your concern. Your information was so noted and quite helpful.

"...Both my kids go to that school also. Knowing that a drunken nut with no license is coming in there daily really burns my *****. Talk about two sets of rules..." PA: Wynnewood 

"...okay, okay, okay Sheriff Rhodes has been in office for a whole year now. Let's get down to the nitty gritty..." DRG: Pauls Valley 

"...Just a quick note to say that I support the Chanda act (and Chanda's family) and I look forward to justice in her death. Too many have gotten away with so much for too long. They ain't going to get away with it...." RTCV: Pauls Valley

"...a Happy Birthday to Sheila Deviney. I know she is looking down with pride on so many where she lived who are so determined to solve her murder. I pray for her children as well to have strength for what's coming..." NWBR: Lindsay   

"...(P filter) , does anything work right at the medical examiner's office? Whichever doctor who ordered a man from his own funeral ought to have their license yanked. Who they working for, us or covering the (p filter) of a hospital? What kind of autopsy can they do after the funeral home already dressed him out?..." WOE: Maysville

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner is certainly floundering by any estimation and under the gun from a variety of scrutiny from lawmakers, citizen's groups, the forensic pathology community and the media which are following the actions of the agency closely. Some reports indicate that Oklahoma has the worst death investigation in the United States. This is doubly regrettable given that less than twenty years ago, Oklahoma led the field and had state of the art facilities and was a pioneer in new techniques of death investigation. A perfect storm of neglect, poor oversight, lack of accountability, malfeasance and corruption have rendered asunder a once great agency that our state desperately needs to be working properly and independently.  

Per your interest in Mr. Parks' untimely passing, the OCME has indicated that the inspection of his remains, whatever it entailed has been completed and that he is scheduled to be returned to the Maysville funeral home for burial. They also stated that a full autopsy was not performed. Dr. Chai Choi is the pathologist who ordered the measure. It is unknown at this time what information convinced her to do so.

To answer your other question, an autopsy is simply an inspection of the body, requiring partial and sometimes complete dissection of the remains to facilitate visual inspection, internal tests, enhanced toxicology, and many other modalities. The common practices of embalming are not a great hurdle in such a procedure most of the time, according to experts in that field who have given us their insight. An autopsy on such a body would however, obviously take this fact into consideration beforehand. Exhumation autopsies (an autopsy done following burial and disinterment of remains) are often just as straight forward. A recent example is the December, 2009 court ordered exhumation autopsy done on the body of Garvin County shooting victim Chanda Turner, buried since July of 2000. Chanda's body, even though embalmed for nine years was in exceptional condition and the findings of the procedure were as clear as if they had been done as they should have been immediately following her death. The findings of that autopsy clearly indicated that Chanda Turner died of an externally inflicted gunshot wound and that the manner of her death was most assuredly a homicide.

This fact and many others have led concerned citizens to press for reform of the our Medical Examiner's office as well as pertinent changes in our State's legal statutes. The end result at this particular time is the recent Chanda Turner Reform Act which took effect this week. This law allows persons with one degree of blood tie to appeal the findings of the OCME in District Court. Mr. Parks' family as well as hundreds of others have until Nov 1st, 2013 to be grandfathered into this law. Thank you for your interest in our movement and for commenting on THE ELEVENTH COMMANDMENT website.--XI     

"...meanwhiles, I guess Johnny Speerbracher is just going to waller away in the slam. With all that's going around, they probably going to forgethim..." OI/TI Paoli

The Speerbracher matter is far from forgotten, we assure you. At the time of this writing, his competent legal counsel is working hard on his behalf, his family is pursuing a petition to raise interest in vacating further murder proceedings against him given the circumstances and the GCSO is finalizing the conflict regarding his bond.--XI 

"...ME came and took Andy Parks from his own funeral to OKC, don't know why..." NWBR: Maysville

According to the OCME family liason officer, that individual unfortuneately expired at Norman Regional Hospital during a routine procedure and when contacted by NRH staff, Dr. Chai Choi, the pathologist on duty at the OCME, site unseen released the body as a 'no jurisdiction' classification. Later, following unknown additional information, possible from field investigators, Dr. Choi amended her previous decision and sought the remains for further scrutiny. At the time of this writing, it was unknown by OCME staff if they intended to perform a full autopsy or not and the main issue was to rule out a pulmonary embolism. According to OCME, they expect to release the remains shortly.--XI 

"...Now let's see what the ********* and their handlers have to say about it now. We're behind you, Chanda. Always have been...." WEO: Pauls Valley

"...What time frame for Chanda case to be heard now that the law is going into effect?..." EIM: Pauls Valley

The Chanda Turner Reform Act will become law on November 1st, 2011. Chanda's case will be one of the first to be appealed under the new provision. As for a time frame, it will depend largely on typical docket load in the Oklahoma County District court. Our best wishes to the Turner and Speziale family in their endeavor and for those other families who are preparing their appeals as we type. 'Thou shalt not get away with it...'--XI 

" why is Johhy Speerbrecher still in custody? Wasn't ne not bonded--judge lowered his bond amount?... SO: Paoli

Johnny Speerbrecher did have his bond reduced significantly by Judge Greg Dixon and if bonded, he must abide by strict in house arrest among other restrictions. He has not yet been bonded due to a conflict in the calculation of his time served and good time amounts between the Garvin County Sheriff's Office and the Oklahoma Department of Corrections in relation to his July conviction on drug possession. The last information availible to us is that Undersheriff Jim Mullett is dilligently working to rectify the specifics so that Speerbrecher might be able to be bonded. The last date projected for his possible release was given as November 25th, 2011. A number of other court dates are scheduled for this defendent as well as a difficult decision on the part of the District Attorney's office on whether to proceed with a second murder trial against him.--XI

"...please feel free to use this for anything you may feel neccessary. I for one am sick to death of watching him skirt the law..." JAEP: Wynnewood.

"...What is your group's opinion on this boy murdered in Paoli and father's trial? And how about mother's trial?" DO/RD: Oklahoma City [MULTIPLE VARIATIONS]

We are taking a great interest in the ongoing Johnny Ray Speerbrecher trial in Garvin County District Court before his Honor, Judge Greg Dixon. We are doing so due to a myriad of issues within the trial, notwithstanding the fact that the case itself hinges very prominently on testimony from embattled Forensic Pathologist Dr. Chai Choi as well as OCME Field Investigator John Miller both of whom have figured heavily in recent times in the ongoing crisis at the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. Also potentially to testify are some previous members of Garvin County law enforcement such as former acting Sheriff Steve Brooks. We also are to understand at the time of this update that the 21st District Attorney's Office has entered into an arranged plea agreement with Lisa Speerbrecher (former wife of the defendent) in exchange for leniency in a major felony narcotics case. Our wish is that the evidence presented is the truest it can be and that the defendent is afforded a zealous advocacy by his counsel with strict due process and that the jury can come to a clear and judicious verdict. The case itself is currently being covered by local media which can be seen on the
latest news page. At the time of this writing, the case is ongoing and open to the public.--XI.

" the crimestoppers line actually anonymous? If it really is, I woould like to ********* ***** ******* **** as well. .." NWBR: Paoli [MULTIPLE VARIATIONS]

It is. GCSO Deputy and Crimestoppers coordinator Steve Mayhan as well as Sheriff Rhodes himself have assured The Eleventh Commandment in person that the phone line connected to CRIMESTOPPERS is completely anonymous and devoid of any modern 'caller ID' type of mechanisms. It is this way to ensure that persons who have credible tips relating to crime in Garvin County can feel at ease in making calls as well as the ability of the Deputies to articulate in a court of law how and when they obtained said tips--that is by anonymous persons whom they cannot identify. We are of the opinion that this effort is a valid one and a step in the right direction in reducing crime in our communities. While XI will still field tips as neccessary, we urge all citizens to utilize this free, safe and excellent tool provided by hard working volunteers who do not turn a profit.--XI

Yes, thank you. That information was discovered early on. However, there has not yet been an adequate explanation for that occurence yet.--XI

NWBR: Pauls Valley

A number of things have 'gotten out of hand' throughout the investigations (or lack thereof) into the deaths of Chanda Turner, Sheila Deviney and Tom Horton. By the description of it in your e-mail, you are most likely referring to the forum which was attached to a KFOR-4 News story following the conclusion to the 2009-2010 Garvin County Grand Jury. That discussion was begun by a Pauls Valley police civilian employee who desired to create a spirited debate about what had transpired since the previous September's convening of the Grand Jury. Police were 'involved' insofar as inspection of the pertinent IP addresses recorded on that board gave startling implications as to the actual identities of certain posters in that heated exchange. Additionally, four Wynnewood Police Officers and an armed civilian riding along with them improperly stopped, cited, searched, threatened to arrest, attempted to secure arrest warrants for and ultimately mailed a collection of citations to one of the Garvin County citizens who had been responsible for petitioning for the Grand Jury in the first place. This event occurred at the height of the online argument on March 5th 2010, the date the Grand Jury was disempaneled and their final findings made public. Despite Wynnewood officers and others that prolonged the case by continually avoiding subpoenas, that case ultimately ended in aquittal on all charges in October, 2010. 
here for the KFOR story in question. It is the one that broadcast the phrase, "intoxicated and passed out."

here for the forum entitled 'Teacher's unsolved death'. At last check, there were 212 comments on that board and to answer the last question posted on it, the 'evidence' they inquire of is most likely sitting in Oklahoma City at the Office of the Attorney General in preparation for future use given the new and far reaching impact of the Chanda Turner Reform Act.--XI

Politics certainly is like road tar. Hot, sticky and hard to get off your boots. At the time of this writing, Mr. Jim Tadlock has successfully fended off a questionable attempt at being removed from the Elmore City Council. He did so by being honest, forthright, calm and level headed as he always is. We wish him a speedy recovery from his physical ailments and all the best in continuing to serve his city.--XI

Recent controversial events have transpired leading to a much higher than average number of communications to our website regarding the Tom Horton case. To answer the first question above with the best information availible to us, yes it is a crime in Oklahoma to deface or otherwise injure a grave site. This is spelled out quite clearly in the Oklahoma State Statutes, Title 21 Section 1167 which reads in part:

Every person who shall willfully with malicious intent destroy, mutilate, deface, injure or remove any tomb, monument or gravestone, or other structure placed in any cemetery or private burying ground, or any fence, railing, or other work for the protection or ornament of any such cemetery or place of burial of any human being, or tomb, monument or gravestone, memento, or memorial, or other structure aforesaid, or of any lot within a cemetery, or shall willfully or with malicious intent destroy, cut, break, or injure any tree, shrub or plant, within the limits thereof, shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor, and shall, upon conviction thereof, be punished by a fine of not less than Fifty Dollars ($50.00), nor more than Five Thousand Dollars ($5,000.00), or by imprisonment in the county jail for a term not to exceed six (6) months, or by both such fine and imprisonment.

As per the second question, according to the State of Oklahoma and confirmed at the time of this writing, the person of which you speak has been in fact penalized for non-payment of child support by having their Oklahoma driver's license revoked following substantial due process effective January 6th 2011.



In regard to this apparent illegal driving while unlicensed, Section 47-6-101 of the Oklahoma State Statutes states:

No person, except those hereinafter expressly exempted in Section 6-102 of this title, shall operate any motor vehicle upon a highway in this state unless the person has a valid Oklahoma driver license for the class of vehicle being operated under the provisions of this title. No person shall be permitted to possess more than one valid license at any time.

Additionally, Section 47-6-308 of the OK Statutes states:

A. It is a misdemeanor for any person to violate any of the provisions of Section 47-6-101 et seq. of this title unless such violation is by Section 47-6-101 et seq. of this title or other law of this state declared to be a felony.

B. Unless another penalty is in Section 47-6-101 et seq. of this title or by laws of this state provided, every person convicted of a misdemeanor for the violation of any provision of Section 47-6-101 et seq. of this title shall be punished by a fine of not more than Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00) or by imprisonment for not more than six (6) months, or by both such fine and imprisonment.

Furthermore, parties central to the matter have formally informed both the Wynnewood City Marshal, Ken Moore and the Garvin County Sheriff, Larry Rhodes in writing via certified mail of the apparent disregard for the law so that either or both of them or their respective staff members can potentially rectify the issue in the normal course of their sworn duties. See below.—XI

Chanda Turner died on July 12th, 2000, eleven years ago today as of this writing. She was beaten, shot and left to die alone in the dark. The true nature of her death was covered up and the cause and manner of it were improperly classified as a suicide until a 2009 exhumation autopsy showed that Chanda's death was a "
homicide made to look like a suicide." Since then, her parents and family have spearheaded an effort to change the way forensic pathology and death investigations are handled in Oklahoma. They have been successful following the passage of Senate Bill 250, signed into law on May 25th 2011 as the CHANDA TURNER REFORM ACT. Chanda's life will not be forgotten and those responsible for taking it will not get away with it...--XI

"...Was Chandra Turner autopsied twice and they screwed one up, I take it? Idiots couldn't agree or similar or so I have been told. I have never seen anything like thise in ally life..." OPER: Pauls Valley

Chanda Turner has been autopsied only once by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. Despite obvious and compelling evidence that she had been brutalized and ultimately murdered, Chanda was initially laid to rest in July 2000 without benefit of an autopsy. After years of effort on the part of her family, her one and only autopsy was performed in December 2009 following a court ordered exhumation of her remains. The procedure was conducted by then Chief Medical Examiner, Dr. Collie Trant. An additional Forensic Pathologist from Colorado hired by Chanda Turner's parents, Dr. Robert Bux, participated by observing each aspect of the procedure per the same court order. Both Pathologists, Trant and Bux concurred that Chanda Turner's cause and manner of death was most assuredly homicide and that her State of Oklahoma Death certificate should be amended to relflect that. Dr. Trant has since gone on record stating that Chanda's death was a 
"homicide made to look like a suicide." 

An OCME autopsy was performed on Sheila Deviney's immolated remains within 24 hours of her death in January 2004. The results of this autopsy which clearly indicated homicide were withheld from the Deviney family for nine months. Ultimately, the forensic findings in this matter worked to enable a 2005 Grand Jury change her cause and manner to homicide.

No autopsy has been performed on Tom Horton despite his unattended, violent death by firearm which fit the State of Oklahoma Statute for one as well as requests by his family for one as well as additional evidence of his possibly being in a violent confrontation moments before his death among numerous other things. A realistic appeal of the OCME decision as well as the potential for an exhumation autopsy are now a reality thanks to the passage of the Chanda Turner Reform Act which takes effect on November 1st, 2011.

Besides the fact that the bill passed unanimously through every committee and floor vote in the entire Oklahoma Legislature without a single opposition vote, the following Senators and Representatives had the most to do with the Chanda Turner Reform Act becoming law either as original authors or co-authors. Thank you Senators Marlatt, Ballenger, Garrison, Johnson, Paddack, Shortey, Brinkley and David as well as Representatives Armes, Billy, Hilliard, Cockroft, McAffrey, Tibbs, Cox, Condit, Ritze, Scott, Sherrer, Roan, Hoskin, Roberts, and Sanders.

Legislation is enormously complicated. At the time of this writing, the Chanda Turner Reform Act (SB 250 by Senator Bryce Marlatt) had completed debate in both houses of congress and passed certification as titled and amended in the Senate Conference committee. It is nearly finished with the certification process and if it passes, it will continue to Governor Mary Fallin for her consideraton.--XI

"...? any trut to Rhodes ********************** and pulling officers out of WWPD?..."

As mentioned previously, neither XI nor other average citizens are generally allowed to know the internal workings of the GCSO, Sheriff Rhode's perogative or other similar issues. While we cannot comment on the former in any way, the latter is true in that Sheriff Rhodes has recently informed local police departments within Garvin County that his deputies may not serve as part time officers, ostensibly due to 'conflicts of interest.' Although the process he underwent to arrive at that decision is unknown to us, we feel it is a very rational and appropriate one for a multitude of very obvious reasons.--XI

We cannot hope to defuse every 'rumor' that occurs within and without of Garvin County nor is it what our organization is about. Since the death of Chanda Turner in the summer of 2000, her family, the Deviney family from Maysville, petitioners for a 2009 Grand Jury regarding Tom Horton's death and members of The Eleventh Commandment (including one who unsuccessfully ran for municipal office recently) have all fallen victim to various forms of attempted intimidation, repeated property damage or other loss at various times. It seems to unfortuneately come with the territory. --XI

"...Told me that there is another petition drive in Elmore again about police issues of some kind. Wasn't sure what. Do you have any information on this and is something yall are doing?..." EP: Maysville

The Eleventh Commandment is not currently involved with any petition matter at this time. Members of XI have previously circulated a petition prior to the formation of the group in a 2009 Grand Jury matter within Garvin County and assisted in part as a group with the circulation of a state-wide
JUSTICE FOR THE DEAD petition in support of SENATE BILL 250 [The Chanda Turner Reform Act] during the last year prior to the current legislative session.

There is a petition being circulated within Elmore City, OK by citizens of that community and yes, it has been brought to our attention by the interested parties involved. Apparently, due to the perceived conduct of the ECPD with regard to certain established mutual aid agreements with the Garvin County Sheriff's Office, some are hoping to convince the Sheriff to rescind or modify the current existing agreement. The copy of the petition sent to XI reads as follows:

"We the undersigned residents of Garvin County, Oklahoma request that the Garvin County Sheriff deny Elmore City, Oklahoma Law Enforcement the right to enforce the law outside of Elmore City limit Jurisdiction." 

Since a petition regarding such a matter does not fit within the established by-laws of our organization, we have no opinion on the matter one way or the other and consider it an Elmore City issue between their citizens, their city fathers, their police and the Sheriff. We are hopeful that the matter is settled amicably among all parties and that the good citizens of Elmore City are satisfied with the outcome whatever it is.--XI

Hardly. But thank you for bringing this to our attention so frankly. Of the three main Garvin County, Oklahoma victims spotlighted on this website (Chanda Turner of Elmore City, Sheila Deviney of Maysville and Tom Horton of Wynnewood) only Mr. Horton had any life insurance at stake and this policy paid off immediately after his death without question due to his being out of indemnity for many decades despite how the cause and manner of death was classified. Neither the families of Chanda Turner nor Sheila Deviney* received anything nor are they poised to despite what events eventually take place with regard to criminal law or statuatory reform of certain State Agencies. (*Although Sheila Deviney's ex-husband, the father of her two children does receive social security survivor benefits following Sheila's 2004 homicide by arson) While we won't comment on the 'coffee talk' at the establishment you referred to, one sure way to know that we're digging into the quick of the matter is the response and actions of those responsible, up to and including insidious gossip and out of context propaganda designed to deteriorate the credibility of those seeking the truth.--XI

Don't worry. With all the thousands of e-mails sent by supporters of XI and JUSTICE FOR THE DEAD, only a handful were answered. This is typical. Despite the stereotypes to the contrary, your average congressman works untold hours, especially now during the congressional session. Your e-mails worked. SB 250 passed the House Floor today 94-0. It must now be formally recertified in titled form (As the
CHANDA TURNER REFORM ACT) before going to the Governor's desk. Along with the hundreds of supporters of the movement calling and e-mailing, the Turner Family and their counsel Jaye Mendros nearly wore the tile off the floor in the State House in person. Justice is one step closer. Thou shalt not get away with it...--XI

"...How can we help the bill pass?..." TR: Oklahoma City

"...What can be done now from our end? Also, nother questions: What was the bill named before when ****** messed with it last time and why is the bill named for Chanda Turner and not a combination of names, or what have you. Just wondering..." SEK/KAT: Newcastle

At least two of the lawmakers who manipulated the families of lost loved ones in the process of allegedly creating flawed legislation last session are now charged with bribery and are pending trial. No specific bills were ever actually introduced at that time regarding any far reaching reforms of the OCME and the one bill which did pass regarding the Medical Examiner's Office was thankfully and appropriately vetoed by then Governor Brad Henry.

Before it can become law and binding to the current situation, the Chanda Bill must pass a combined vote before the House of Representatives which will commence soon. It must then be re-confirmed at the Senate in its amended and formally titled form before it can be sent to current Governor Mary Fallin to hopefully be signed into law. All those who wish to help the passage of this measure are encouraged to send e-mail in support of the CHANDA TURNER REFORM ACT (Senate Bill 250) to all the members of the Oklahoma House of Representatives and the Senate as well as Governor Mary Fallin. E-mail addresses for all current congressmen can be found at and  

The SB 250 bill as now officially titled is named after victim Chanda Turner for a variety of reasons, not withstanding that Chanda's family and parents have led the charge from Garvin County, Oklahoma since July 2000. Chanda Turner's family and friends have borne the brunt of a vast amount of malfeasance, have personally financed the overwhelming majority of the legal research involving the drafting of the pending legislation as well as a performed innumerable hours of legwork and networking via Since Chanda's is the oldest case, the original case and in many ways a breakthrough case, naming a potentially landmark law after her seems quite appropriate. If passed, the Chanda Turner Reform Act will have broad and far reaching consequences for a number of other families in Oklahoma and all over the United States as well. May those that knew Chanda, especially those involved in her early demise and the convoluted events that followed remember her name forever.--XI

Simply not enough staff to cover all the things going on all at once. Not to worry, we noticed but waited for it to pan out and for the situation to become more clear. For a couple of pennies, this is a perfect example of the convoluted nature of things where we live.

While we support and respect the District Attorney's abilities, insight and right to question judicial bias, we are at once stricken by the outcry over what appears to be Mashburn's office simply not taking no for an answer and playing out the issue in the media. These are two things we at The Eleventh Commandment have been critisized for relentlessly by his office as we and our allies have run the gauntlet of the criminal justice system for a day in court to objectively inspect the 'totality of the circumstances' regarding the demise of human beings. What we hope transpires is that cooler heads and astute legal minds prevail and the entire story is allowed to unfold with 'no stone left unturned'. If Mr. Mashburn gets his day in court and Mr. Lucas gets his day in court then perhaps the issue will be settled and the rest of the citizens of the 21st judicial district can go on about having their day in court.--XI

Absolutely. Follow the links below to read for yourself the current bills pertaining to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in this legislative session. By our estimation, only one (SB 250: The Chanda Turner Reform Act) has the input of the families of lost loved ones who have been denied justice by a broken system and it alone has the provisions neccessary for lasting change in Oklahoma.--XI

The Chanda Turner Act, a bill authored in the Senate by Senator Bryce Marlatt-R, Woodward has passed unanimously before a Senate Sub-Committee and an Appropriations Committee without change. It will now undergo debate on the Senate Floor and a vote before the combined Senate. If it wins Senate approval, it will then travel to the Oklahoma House of Representatives to repeat a similar process amongst a variety of committees and then the full House. If is passes the House, it will go before our new Governor, Mrs. Fallin to be signed into law if she deems it fit to be. Many pitfalls remain as well as weeks or months of hard work on the part of our this entire movement, the lawmakers and the families of lost loved ones as well as the crack team of attorneys led by Jaye Mendros which have proven themselves during this struggle. You can help by communicating your desires as constituents to your Senators and Representatives as well as Governor Fallin herself via mail, telephone and e-mail. This act, if it becomes law, will help dozens of families immediately in Garvin County and all across our state. It will also fundamentally improve Oklahoma in the future in the unforseen case your family is ever affected.--XI

Fifty thousand is indeed alot of money. Make no misake, the reward exists, the money is real, those that pledged it are outraged and are even considering upping the reward as the case warrants and as new information develops.

Ken Moore's residence is in fact outside of the municipal city limits of Wynnewood and within the geographical confines of Murray County. The Eleventh Commandment makes no claim as to the legality of Chief Moore's standing or eligibility to run for the office he now occupies in the upcoming municipal election. Whether or not there is a Alderman/Councilman prohibition for him regarding his police unit is unknown as he does commonly keep his police cruiser at his Murray County residence while not on duty.--XI

Doesn't it make more sense that  it was taken and someone in the sheriff's department knows who took it? But surely we have no corruption in the GCSD..." POB: Pauls Valley

Modern law enforcement requires competency with a number of weapons and non-lethal options due to the violent and unpredictable nature of our society. A rifle of the type in question is just one of these. The tools of the trade, when used properly, become worn, broken and sometimes, unfortuneately lost. Newly elected Sheriff Rhodes certainly has alot on his plate in regard to shoring up issues within his department and restoring trust in an agency damaged by previous perceptions of wrongdoing. --XI 

"...I am kinda new at all this and what has been going on in Garvin County until this last election 'circus act' but it does strike me funny that some of the same deputies and cops keep comming up in these investigations over and over..." MR: Lindsay

"...I would like to know who the camera and gun were signed out to when they were lost.  As a citizen of Garvin County I feel I have a right to know, especially if it was one of the deputies that was retained under the new sheriff..." HH: Elmore City

"...Long time resident of WW, first time to speak up. You may know this already but it seems to me that USPO's (Upstairs Passed Out's) Wife, was there at the house on Schmidt when that shooting happened. ************ told me that a dark colored car was in the drive but Tom's white Dodge pickup was heading out and it wasn't Tom driving it. Something doesn't add up here, folks..." DD: Wynnewood

"...Is it true that new evidence has been uncovered relating to Tom's death **********, ******** which the grand jury didn't hear? Also, is it also tu that Chris Caine's death was not heard by the Grand Jury? What's the deal there?..." VM: Pauls Valley

"...Was the Grand Jury a farce? I would like to know from someone close to it. I only see what I read in the papers up here..." PW: Noble

It is true that citizens of Garvin County and elsewhere who are outraged over the overall incompleteness of the investigation into Tom Horton's death have responded positively to our movement and website. It is also true that a vast amount of new evidence has been procurred since the Grand Jury was disempaneled and comes in almost daily. We are optimistic that ultimately, the truth will be known regarding the chain of events which occurred on the afternoon of Wednesday, December 10th, 2008 in Wynnewood. 

The Tom Horton Grand Jury [Garvin County Case Number CJ-09-00319] did not choose to hear the matter of the shooting death of Chris Cain. According to DA staff, this was in part due to the crime being committed in a different jurisdiction in another state despite the probability that issues within Garvin County contributed to Cain's death. The same Grand Jury also declined to hear the matters of the murder of Sheila Deviney outside of Maysville, and the murder of Chanda Turner whose remains were being exhumed and autopsied while the Jury was empaneled. A matter involving horse neglect was also declined. Again, according to DA staff, most of these decisions had as much to do with circumstances relating to logistics and the input of the District Attorney's Office as they did with the Jury itself. The reality of jurisprudence trumps any and all expectations or wishes and the Grand Jury and their ultimate thought process is closed to the public.

While these are unfortunate facts which did not yield a concise outcome, what should be made clear is that the Jury was made up of common citizens who sacrificed many weeks of their jobs and life and did an extraordinary job objectively looking at the evidence which was made availible to them. They did their level best and should be commended by all voting citizens for their contribution. Additionally, it should be pointed out that the Jury's failure to return a true bill of indictment in Tom Horton's death is not neccessarily a detriment to future investigation into the matter. Had the Jury returned an indictment which was false, short sighted or flawed, this may have worked to allow a guilty person to go free in the future by creating a case which was unwinnable--or worse, indicting an innocent person. There is no statute of limitations on homicide anywhere within the United States.

It should also be noted that the Grand Jury did return indictments against an individual accused of drug crimes which is still on the docket and soon to be before a petit jury in Garvin County District Court. The Eleventh Commandment supports the due process of law in all matters and encourages all persons of age to be registered to vote and thus availible to perform the civic responsibility of jury duty. Government is only as good as the goverened. 'Thou shalt not get away with it...' --XI  

"...If you feel it is important to post my question, please do not use my name or initials. I found this site through a share on facebook by ****************** I trust and love. I have been horrified by the evidence I've seen. I have heard the rumors regarding corruption and lazy investigation regarding these cases but had never seen or heard the "why" the families thought it was murder. Now I understand. Yes I was supporter of Brooks, now I wish I wasn't. One question I have is why ****** ********** *********** ************* **************** allowed at the crime scene?..." ANON IP:

That is a very good question and one which the family who lost their loved one has been asking for quite awhile now without a definitive answer. 2011 promises to hopefully answer it and bring closure to a long suffering family. Garvin County now has a fresh new District Judge, new energetic ADAs, a new Attorney General, Governor and a capable new Sheriff which ran on a platform promising to objectively look at the totality of the Turner, Deviney and Horton cases based on the entirety of the old evidence and any new evidence. (Which has been gained in buckets by the way.) Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead. For more information also visit and --XI

"...Did Don Helpingstine work the Chanda Turner crime scene on Klondike?..." WE: Wynnewood

"...Who exactly was present--or should I say who was documented to be present--at the shooting up on Klondike when the Turner girl was killed?..." SD: Elmore City

According to the GCSO crime scene log prepared by Deputy Bill Carson, then Deputy Don Helpingstine did in fact work the crime scene as a commisioned law enforcement officer and was one of the first responding officers to the scene. He was the first Deputy to begin the crime scene log before being relieved. In fact, he possessed the same level of certification as future acting Sheriff Steve Brooks during the same time frame and was technically on the scene longer than Brooks having arrived before and leaving after Brooks. See the photo below: (The standard version of the crime scene log appears on the EXHIBITS page.)


The two page crime scene log lists the following individuals in no specific order: Former GCSO Deputy Don Helpingstine, Current Deputy Bill Carson, Former Deputy Gary Cozad, Former Sheriff Bob Davis, Former Assistant District Attorney Larry Balcerak, Former Deputy Taylor, Former Deputy Matt Mixon, Former Assistant District Attorney Scott Sampson, Former Deputy Steve Brooks, Former Deputy Rambo, Current OCME Investigator John Miller, Former Undersheriff Donnie Anderson, Former Deputy Tony Johnston, Current Attorney Robert T. Rennie (Listed as Bobby Rennie), Robbie Tucker who lived at the property in question at the time of the death. Former Elmore City PD Officer Jennings, Funeral Home Director Gary Wooster and Heather Adkins, a friend who was staying at the home at the time of the shooting and who is now deceased.

Deputies Rambo and Johnston do not appear as having entered the crime scene but they are documented as having left it. Members of a PVGH Ambulance Crew are also not reflected in the report.--XI

"...When a new Sheriff takes over, aren't the state supposed to audit things? What kind oversight is there between elections?..." PS/KS: Paoli

The Office of the State Auditor and Inspector provides independent oversight and issues reports which are designed to ensure a government which is accountable to the people of the State of Oklahoma. (At the time of this writing, newly elected Gary Jones had not yet been sworn into office) In regard to your question, 19 O.S. § 178.1 spells out the requirements for our county:

“The board of county commissioners in each county of this state shall take, or cause to be taken, an inventory of all working tools, apparatus, machinery and equipment belonging to the county or leased or otherwise let to it or to any department thereof, other than that which is affixed to and made part of lands and buildings, the cost of which as to each complete working unit thereof is more than Five Hundred Dollars ($500.00), and thereafter maintain or cause to be maintained a continuous inventory record thereof and of like tools, apparatus, machinery and equipment purchased, leased or otherwise coming into custody of the county or any office, board, department, commission or any or either thereof, and the disposition thereof whether sold, exchanged, leased or let where authorized by statute, junked, strayed or stolen, and biennially thereafter…”

The last known current publication regarding Garvin County by the State Auditor and Inspector's Office was the May 2009 Garvin County Sheriff Officer Turnover Statutory Report which took place just prior to then Undersheriff Steve Brooks being named Acting Sheriff.That report can be read online here:

An excerpt from that report indicates that some items owned by the county, including a firearm were indeed missing at the time of that report:
"...It was noted that a complete and accurate inventory of all office furniture and equipment was not maintained. We were not able to locate the following items:
1. Teal Sofa—Serial Number N/A
2. Bushmaster Rifle—Serial Number L308145
3. Sony Cybershot Camera—Serial Number 803110
4. Garbage Disposal—Serial Number 122180

Effect: Inventory items were not accurately accounted for and the County's assets may not be safeguarded.

Recommendation: OSAI recommends equipment inventory information be periodically reviewed, reconciled, and updated to detect errors and to maintain an accurate inventory record. Additionally, OSAI recommends that the disposition or location of the items unable to be located be researched and corrected.

Views of responsible officials and planned corrective actions: As discussed with OSAI, Mr. Roady stated that the sofa was disposed of by the Department of Environmental Quality because ingredients from a meth lab spilled on it. The camera was lost at a crime scene. The bushmaster rifle was lost after serving a warrant. The garbage disposal broke and was disposed of when the sink was removed. The County did not remove it from inventory..."

A current inventory and report is pending by statute and will no doubt occur forthwith.--XI

"...did someone pull a fast one to get Rhodes tucked away nicely or what?..." TT: Davis

"...I don't understand exactly the legal-eze determining why Rhodes had to take over so soon and how come he didn't get time to recruit his administration..." CS: Pauls Valley

While we cannot at this time cite statute and regulation either, we tend to assume that ADA George Burnett was correct when he contended that the law was clear that a newly elected Sheriff must take over the office of an appointed official within three days of election. This was due to then Acting Sheriff Brooks fulfilling the remainder of the term vacated by his predecessor, Sheriff Bill Roady who ran for the office unopposed in the previous term before retiring after one year due to health concerns. This fact was largely unknown to most voters and supporters of both camps and an unforseen scenario since Acting Sheriff Brooks was a heavy favorite among many circles. Otherwise, in the typical instance, Sheriff Rhodes would have taken office on January 1st with the rest of the newly elected officials.--XI

"...All my best to the many families who worked together. I think Garvin County will be a better place soon. (Although I live in McClain haha) I hope you all get the answers you seek..." JWE: Noble

Congratulations on becoming a good citizen of Garvin County and a good American period. The members of The Eleventh Commandment are overjoyed to exist in a county full of civic minded people who work to better their communities. The new registers at the county election board and the voter turnout was truly impressive. We now have a new District Judge, a new Attorney General and a new Sheriff of Garvin County so the odds for change are in our favor. As a wise scholar once said, we have the worst form of government ever known to man--except all the other ones which have ever been tried before. The wheels of justice do move slowly. But trust us, they are moving.--XI

We did experience some 'technical difficulties' directly following the election.

" question is justice for the dead part of the eleventh commandment?..." BV: Maysville

No, Ma'am. The group called Justice For The Dead (whose website address is located at and our organization called, The Eleventh Commandment ( are two distinctly seperate organizations who share similar interests, certain information and lean upon one another during hard times. They have allied together and assisted one another at times including the hosting of the recent CST Symposium this past October which greatly benefitted both groups in very different ways.

JFTD was founded by Oklahoma City Attorney Jaye Mendros in cooperation with the Turner family and as their legal counsel. Their organization's efforts involve the reform of the medical examiner's office up to and including changes in state statute regarding forensic pathology and OCME organization. These efforts are designed to help the Chanda Turner case due to the ME's handling of that matter and have since encompassed a large number of other families with similar issues with the ME's office as well. We applaud and support this effort and help any way we can, when we can.

The Eleventh Commandment is a non-profit citizens action group founded in Garvin County specifically to combat issues that impact Garvin County including three unsolved murders and subsequent corruption issues. All three Garvin County cases have something to do with the ME's office and JFTD assists us when they can. Both agencies have concerns that overlap one another and both have issues seperate from the other. If you want to be involved in being a part of the ultimate solution in Oklahoma, support both groups.--XI

"...[multiple variations:] how much influence do you have over Larry? I was hoping I could get a job doing..." [paraphrase] Multiple Entries.
Please understand that The Eleventh Commandment as a group and the members seperately have absolutely no influence on Sheriff Elect Larry Rhodes whatsoever. To reiterate a statement we made weeks ago, the newly elected Sheriff made no promises to our staff or anyone else we know regarding jobs in his administration in any capacity. Rumors to the contrary appear to be contentious election related propaganda. Furthermore, no XI staff members have any plans to join the GCSO in any capacity in the foreseeable future period. XI endorsed Larry Rhodes for Sheriff and we support his administration fully. All Department related questions, especially employment related ones should be directed to the GCSO directly.--XI

"...The sheriff's office website is down. Completely down. Is this sour grapes and adminsitrative document shredding for the 21st century?..." PS: Paoli


Unknown. At the time of this writing, we had not yet confirmed the requirements, if any, for the SO's website in relation to their jail and inmate populations. We were also unable to locate any current GCSO pages of any kind online. Apparently, the GCSO website was not owned by Garvin County outright but was updated and managed offsite by others who donated the hosting to Steve Brook's administration. This arrangement, whatever it ultimately was is apparently ending with the Acting Sheriff's administration.--XI

The families of Chanda Turner, Sheila Deviney and Tom Horton who have been without justice, closure or answers for up to a decade as well as others like Heather Adkins think that's eleven too many.

Although true to our mission to 'scour the streets for all lawful information' we do not, have not and will not mail, deliver,broadcast or set forth any so called 'folders' or 'flyers' in regard to acting Sheriff Steve Brook's alleged non-expunged criminal past. Although this issue of flyers has been a contentious campaign issue for quite awhile, it is both unethical from our point of view as alleged and in any case, contrary to our mission statement and bylaws. It is also illegal per the State of Oklahoma 21 OS 70 S: 1840 which reads in part:

A. It shall be unlawful for any person, firm, corporation, partnership, organization, or  association to cause to be broadcast, written, printed, posted, or distributed a  statement, circular, poster, or advertisement which is designed to influence the voters on the  nomination or election of a candidate or to influence the voters on any constitutional or  statutory amendment or on any other issue in a state, county, city, or school district election,  or to influence the vote of any member of the  Legislature, unless there appears in a  conspicuous place upon such circular, poster, or advertisement, or within a broadcast  statement, either the name and address of the person who paid for the communication if an  individual, or the name and address of the president, chairman, or secretary, or of two  officers of the organization, if an organization which paid for the communication.  Persons violating this act shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.

In that same vein however, The Eleventh Commandment has, through commonly accepted legal channels including public record, the Oklahoma Open Records Act, The Texas Open Records Act and the Freedom of Information Act have confirmed and disseminated to the media and the pertinent authorities certain facts and information. These confirmed incidences and events with regard to Acting Sheriff Steve Brooks' background and suitabillity for office fundamentally differ from that which he and his campaign are currently claiming. More on this issue is forthcoming as it becomes availible.

 This effort is ongoing and quite labor intensive in that it involves material in several states. It is also being performed in the spirit of transparency and full disclosure with the knowledge that certain groups have made overtures with regard to civil action. As always, we support the truth in all matters and wish for all Garvin County voters to have the best possible information on candidates. Thank you for supporting the Eleventh Commandment.

"...I seem to remember there was an issue with the number of signatures required for a grand jury. I got that from reading the news stories. Was there ever a final outcome on that issue?..." JL: Wynnewood

Sadly, no. Over a year after the Tom Horton Grand Jury  was convened, there does not exist a straight answer as to the appropriate way to interpret the Oklahoma Constitution in regard to a Grand Jury by petition. When the Horton petitioners were stonewalled by the Garvin County Election Board in August of 2009, their attorney of record, Mr. Balcerak made a very astute and straight forward interpretation of the law which had served him and Garvin County well in two previous Grand Juries before the same District Judge. The election board, via their attorneys at the state office made a second, fundamentally different interpretation which resulted in the necessity to obtain over three times the number of signatures as in the last two Grand Juries. A writ of Mandamus to the Oklahoma Supreme Court filed by the petitioners for absolute interpretation was refused by Chief Justice Edmondson, the Attorney General's brother. The petitioners had no choice but to scour Garvin County for signatures which they did. Two thousand, seven hundred and thirty nine total signatures were delivered.
Following the events of the Grand Jury, and after months of lobbying for assistance, District 22 Representative Wes Hilliard sponsored a formal question of law to Attorney General Drew Edmondson for clarification. Mr. Edmondson's office stalled for some time and then refused to give a formal answer, issueing only a 'plain reading' by ADA Karl Kramer in September of 2010. The plain reading indicates yet a third scenario for determining registered voter numbers.

Oklahoma is one of only six remaining states which possess the Grand Jury provision for use by the people and it is a powerful tool for oversight when used properly. The Eleventh Commandment feels strongly about the ultimate interpretation of the pertinent laws and will continue to request clarification from the current Attorney General and his successor following the Nov 2nd general election until the matter is settled. --XI

"...Give em hell, 11th Commandment..."  FF: Lindsay

"...You act as though Brooks failed you. How can you expect him to be responsible for things that didn't happen when he worked there? Steve Brooks was not the Sheriff then when Chanda Turner was killed and had nothing whatsoever to do with her case being in the mess it is. Why would he investigate crimes from ten years ago?..." RW: Pauls Valley

While we certainly appreciate your writing to The Eleventh Commandment with your opinions and concerns, please allow us to set you straight with regard to Steve Brooks and his relationship with unsolved homicides in this county.
Steve Brooks did in fact work for the Garvin County Sheriff's office in July of 2000 when Chanda Turner was shot and died at her residence on Klondike Road. As the crime scene log below clearly shows, Steve Brooks, as a commisioned deputy, entered and left the inner perimeter of the crime scene twice during that incident--

--Furthermore, Brooks was later the Undersheriff of Garvin County for seven years during the period when the Turner family was initially doing their level best to find the truth in relation to Chanda's case.

Finally, after being appointed as acting Sheriff by the Garvin County Commisioners on June 1st, 2009 (more than 15 months ago as of this writing) Acting Sheriff Brooks has admitted to doing nothing whatsoever to investigate any aspect of the Chanda Turner case, the 2004 Sheila Deviney case or the 2008 Tom Horton case going so far as to indicate the reason he has not was that no family member 'asked him' to.
As a matter of fact, Steve Brooks helped to further complicate the Chanda Turner case in May of 2010 when the Medical Examiner's office consulted with his office with regard to reopening the case following Chanda's exhumation and autopsy by pathologists Trant and Bux. Acting Sheriff Brooks and his staff actually recommended that her case remain classified a suicide despite pending evidence to the contrary.

See this article in the Daily Oklahoman for more on that event:

Additionally, Acting Sheriff Brooks has done nothing whatsoever to close, solve, clear, actively investigate or explore the Sheila Deviney case, even though it has been classified as a murder on her death certificate, an ME's report, a Fire Marshal's report, a LPG inspector's report and a Grand Jury report. In fact, Acting Sheriff Brooks refused to re-nominate that case for a continued $5,000 dollar OSBI reward despite that classification. Given that there is no statute of limitations for murder in the State of Oklahoma it would appear that Steve Brooks, the appointed chief law enforcement officer in Garvin County has failed.--XI

We are thankful that these agencies learned from previous mistakes made in the Tom Horton death and are working dilligently to bring an in depth investigation and hopefully a judicious conclusion to the matter. We hope that when they have concluded, they will bring the same level of competence back to the Tom Horton issue.--XI

The number one thing we need all across Garvin County is the word out that we are here to stay and not going away and those that killed our friends and loved ones are going to answer for their deeds. We also have plenty of work for those willing to volunteer and we have the matter of our upcoming conference. Stay tuned.--XI

"...Why do they charge money for a casse that is considered open? I smell a rat..." TD: Pauls Valley

Thank you all for following our movement and for your input. Keep in mind that Steve Brooks is the appointed and acting Sheriff until at least the election on November 2nd and is thus due all the respect afforded that position from our organization and from all citizens of Garvin County. Information is pouring in but the wheels of justice move slowly even in the best of times. Please spread the word and continue your support of THE ELEVENTH COMMANDMENT.--XI

Certainly not. The messages posted here are a subset of those that give a well rounded view of what we are about and what the community at large feels about our efforts. Many messages, due to their evidentiary value are kept confidential as well as those from persons who ask us not to use them or who fear for possible retaliation. Others are pointedly insulting, obscene or incomplete so as to make them unsuitable to post here. Feel free to contact us by fax, phone, e-mail, snail-mail or in person.--XI

"...Did my ears fail me or did the 25 news qoute Sheriff Brooks as saying he would look into the Sheila Deviney case 'if asked'. What the **** **** is he watin on?..."  P: Paoli

I believe you heard correctly. See the KOKH news clip  you are referring to on our latest news page. We are uncertain as to which endeavors Sheila Deviney's family undertook with relation to law enforcement that did not constitute 'asking for assistance' anytime since January 6th, 2004. Acting Sheriff Brooks did clarify to XI members in person that he had been in contact with the OSBI to obtain the status of the case and indicated that he would 'look into' certain aspects of that case and others following his November 2nd re-election so as not to 'appear politically motivated.' We certainly do not share his priorities on the timeline of Sheila Deviney's case as it is certainly not growing any warmer.--XI

"...Just want you guys to know you have our full support. Our prayers are with all the families involved that they find justice for their loved ones..." T & A: Pauls Valley

"...Is it true that [ELEVENTH COMMANDMENT MEMBER] ******* ***** is going to work for RHodes if he wins the election?..." BB: Pauls Valley

That is not true and most likely a tall tale told during election time. The extent of the relationship between Larry Rhodes, candidate for Garvin County Sheriff and THE ELEVENTH COMMANDMENT, a non-profit, non-partisan political action group is that Mr. Rhodes has explained to us his platform which includes the fact that he has pledged to reopen and actively investigate the unsolved homicides here in Garvin County; including those mentioned on this site. Subsequently, our organization wholeheartedly supports and endorses Larry Rhode's campaign. We do not campaign for him (nor against his opponent, acting Sheriff Brooks) and he has not promised us, or anyone as far as we know, jobs in his potential administration.--XI

"...Are the reward posters all gone? I saw some in PV. I wanted to hang one at my place here in Lindsay and I also have some folks at Foster and Erin Springs who want to hang them as well.

We still have plenty and we'll be to you ASAP. We took a short hiatus because of all the rains so we wouldn't have soggy posters. Thanks for the support.--XI

By all means go right ahead. We need all the help we can possibly get.--XI

"...Do ya have any yard signs? ****** ******** keeps taking mine and threatened to **** ** *** * ***** for putting a new one out in my yard..." LD:Stratford

According to the Garvin County Sheriff's Office crime scene log dated 7/13/00 and prepared by Deputy Bill Carson, then Deputy Steve Brooks did in fact enter the crime scene located on Klondike Road and did so at 02:48 hours. [**See the exhibits page for a photocopy of said crime scene log**] --XI

"...I testified before the Grand Jury in Pauls Valley about Tom Horton being shot. I did this in October of last year, I think. I just got a check in the mail from Pauls Valley National Bank that says it is a witness fee for the 'Adkins Grand Jury'. Was this an error? I didn't want to cash it until I was certain there was no mistake made..."  SB: Wynnewood


There was no error. That check pretty much says it all. Several Members of the Eleventh Commandment got similar checks in the mail due to their testimony in the same case. Here is a possible explanation:

The Grand Jury which was convened on September 4th, 2009 by District Judge Candace Blalock following a contentious petition drive (Case number CJ-09-319) was for the matter of the shooting death of Tom Horton, a retired teacher from Wynnewood. The murder cases of Chanda Turner and Sheila Deviney were also added to the Grand Jury by the respective families to potentially be heard afterward as well as two other cases.
The foreman of this Grand Jury, selected by Blalock at the September 21st jury selection was none other than Kirk Dunham, vice president of the Pauls Valley National Bank. Petitioners immediately voiced opposition to Dunham being on the jury after being immediately informed by a former long time PVNB employee that Judge Blalock and her husband then currently had or previously had substantial holdings in that bank including large sums in a personal account as well as one earmarked for a reelection war chest. This implication was considered to be a clear ethical dilema which had the possibility of removing objectivity in the case. However, the petitioners were overruled. In fact, Donna Turner, (mother of murder victim Chanda Turner) who was present as an observer was ordered out of the courtroom by Sheriff Brooks and ADA David Brockman just prior to Dunham being seated for unexplained reasons. [XI Note: Attorney Dan Sprouse, husband of Judge Blalock stated in November 2010 that neither he nor his spouse has now nor has ever possessed any ‘holdings’ as such in the PVNB. He did not clarify whether or not any accounts were previously or presently held there.]

A large majority of the Horton petitioners evidence was discounted by DA staff and not admitted into evidence. It was no surprise then when the Grand Jury did not return a true bill of indictment in the matter of Tom Horton. They thereafter declined to hear the Chanda Turner and Sheila Deviney cases as well as two other cases involving murder and horse neglect. They did, however, agree to hear the case of Andrew Jack 'Andy' Adkins on prescription fraud drug charges presented by the District Attorney Greg Mashburn's Office. One of the charges had previously been brought against Adkins and ended in a hung jury in regular open court. Adkins was thereafter indicted on two drug charges and arrested although he was immediately released on bond. For a time, the case was referred to as Grand Jury versus Adkins but has since been altered again. This may explain your findings.

"...Thanks for all the information you gave my family at the Wiley Post festival. I was astonished to see the Sheriff sitting right across from you not paying the matter much attention. I know how I'll vote come November 2nd..." PG: Pauls Valley

The polls open at 7am and remain open until 7pm. See our endorsements on the contact page for our opinion.--XI

"...Tom Horton DID NOT shoot himself. Of that I am certain..." CCE: Wynnewood

We feel quite certain that Mr. Horton's death was not investigated properly, thoroughly or objectively and what transpired at the Grand Jury was incomplete and tainted. However, due to the diligence and interest of friends like you, new knowledge has been gained regarding the events prior to, during and after December 10th, 2008. Mr. Horton, as a Vo/AG teacher was a patient man and never forgot about the thousands of students he taught. We will be patient and not forget about him either.--XI

"...Your efforts are an example to us all. I am proud to have known Sheila Deviney since she and I were in 7th grade. I know the truth will come out. I know they will not get away with what they did... FS: Lindsay

"...I seem to remember a very large corruption scandal a ways back in Oklahoma which included Garvin County and involved several undercover special agents. I think it involved oil field equipment or stolen pipes and what not. Are ya'll familiar?.." GR: Pauls Valley

You may be referring to an operation which took place in Texas and Oklahoma in 1980-81 in which many county commisioners across the state were investigated by the FBI for conspiracy involving the taking of kickbacks. It is now commonly referred to as OKSCAM. See this link for more information on that event: --XI
