The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation was in Frederick over the weekend after a body was found at Lake Frederick. According to reports, the body appeared to have been run over by a car and set on fire. The crime scene was a camp site on the west side of the lake.
Frederick Police received a 911 call at about 3 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 19. The caller said a dead body had been found at a camp site. Upon arrival, officers discovered a man’s body that appeared to have been run over by a car and set on fire. A woman at the scene was detained and transported to the Tillman County Sheriff’s Office where OSBI agents interviewed and arrested her.
Tammy Sue Nunn, 54, of Eufala, has been booked in the Tillman County Jail on first degree murder charges in the death. She is being held without bond.
The man’s body has not been positively identified. OSBI spokeswoman Jessica Brown said, “We have a working identity on who it might be, but we’re not releasing anything until we know for sure.”
The medical examiner’s office said that they are working with the OSBI to positively identify the deceased through fingerprints.
The affidavit of probable cause had not yet been filed with the Tillman County court clerk as of this morning. An initial hearing date has not yet been set for Nunn. Nunn’s previous criminal history includes a protective order, DUI and driving without a license.
