OSBI offers reward for information on 15-year-old cold case

BETHANY, Okla. - Nineteen-year-old Tiffany Johnston went missing from an Oklahoma car wash July 26, 1997.  Her body was found the next day. Fifteen years later, investigators are still searching for her killer.

Johnston was abducted from Sunshine Car Wash in Bethany in Oklahoma County. Her vehicle was abandoned at the car wash.

The next day, Johnston was found strangled to death in Canadian County, two-tenths of a mile south of Interstate 40.

On July 28, 1997, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation was called in to assist with the case.

After conducting a number of interviews regarding Johnston's murder, the case went cold in 2005, and in 2011 the agent assigned to the case retired.

Now, in the hands of a new investigator, a reward is being offered with the hope of creating new leads.

The OSBI is offering up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for Johnston's murder.

This is the second time a reward has been offered in the case.

Anyone with information should call the OSBI hotline at (800) 522-8017.
