Paul Mullican, 62, was found dead yesterday around 2 p.m. near South 40th Street south of Muskogee by family members, according to Undersheriff Greg Martin.
“He went for a walk on Saturday, but didn’t return,” Martin said just now. “His family was worried, so they went looking and found him yesterday in a wooded area.”
Mullican was lying in a small creek that divides two properties.
“There wasn’t much water, but that’s where he was found.”
Mullican, who had some disability issues, did not appear to have been the victim of foul play.
“We are waiting for the medical examiner to determine,” Martin said. “But there is no evidence to indicate it was homicide.”
