Two Muskogee men are in the Muskogee County Jail as material witnesses in a murder case, but will soon be released on that case, according to District Attorney Orvil Loge.
The men, Carl Bryce and Cody Ray Campbell, are believed to be involved in the disappearance of Kristyn Richardson, who has been missing since May. On Friday, Bryce was involved in a standoff with police at a house at 1322 Houston Street. While the standoff was going on, Campbell arrived at the location and turned himself in.
Police noticed a pile of dirt in the back yard of the residence and an odor commonly associated with decomposition. Police dug up the spot and found only animal bones.
Campbell allegedly told a third person that Bryce stabbed and killed Richardson and buried her in the back yard.
Both Bryce and Campbell were alleged to have been selling and giving away Richerson’s property. Because police haven’t been able to determine the whereabouts or condition of Richerson, the two men are no longer going to be held as material witnesses in the murder case, but they are now facing charges related to a stolen truck found at the residence.
If you have any information about this case or Richerson’s condition or whereabouts, please call the Muskogee Police at 918-682-COPS. You can remain anonymous.
