SALLISAW, Okla. (AP) -- Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart says he's reopened an investigation into a 35-year-old unsolved slaying. The body of 35-year-old Sandra Carter Davis was found by hunters on Wild Horse Mountain on Thanksgiving Day, 1978 -- six months after she was last seen leaving a bar in Sallisaw.
Sheriff Ron Lockhart says Davis was stabbed to death. Davis' daughter, Kristi Soileau, asked Lockhart to reopen the case after the recent arrest of a man for an unrelated 1997 slaying. Lockhart told reporters that the case file provided some leads and that DNA from the crime is being tested.
