The Medical Examiner's Office responded to the scene. 

37-year-old Nicole "Nikki" Bain (Spears) was charged with first-degree murder and as a "material witness" in connection with the case. She's currently being held in the Okmulgee County Jail.

He went missing June 24. Officials say he was supposed to be en route to North Carolina to visit family but never arrived. His vehicle was found wrecked and abandoned in Okmulgee.
