In a case stemming from June, Santos Ortiz, 53, of Muskogee has been charged in Muskogee County District Court with sexual abuse of a child under 12 and his live-in girlfriend, Renee Juana Buskirk, who also goes by Renee Ortiz, is charged with enabling child sexual abuse.

The juvenile reported to DHS that Ortiz had molested her while they were living in Texas in 2018, and a medical exam allegedly confirmed her story.

After Buskirk was informed of the allegations, she moved her children to Muskogee with Ortiz, according to the affidavit. Oklahoma DHS discovered the living situation and intervened. Another juvenile in the home, who was too young for a forensic interview was instead examined medically and discovered to have findings consistent with sexual abuse as well as the older child, according to the affidavit filed with the case.

Warrants have been issued for both Ortiz and Buskirk.
