WAGONER COUNTY - A person of interest is in custody as authorities continue to investigate what happened to 15-year-old Brennon Davis, whose body was found on fire in Wagoner County on January 12.

Deputies arrested Josh Herrington for obstruction of justice Sunday morning.

The arrest comes one day after deputies identified the body of a missing 15-year-old found on fire near a Wagoner County yacht club as Brennon Davis of Okay, Oklahoma. 

A statement from the Wagoner County sheriff's offices said they also have a second person of interest, but are not releasing that person's name. The second person of interest was not in custody as of Monday, according to authorities.

Davis was last seen the night of January 11. He was reported missing the morning of January 12.

On January 12 at about 10 p.m., neighbors reported hearing gunshots in the Jackson Bay area of Ft. Gibson Lake. Deputies responded to find a body on fire, so badly damaged they were unable to determine its identity or gender.

The state medical examiner identified the body as Davis on Saturday. The office said a report will not be available until Tuesday because of the holiday. The report will determine whether Davis sustained gunshots and whether he was alive or dead at the time the fire was set.

"We are working diligently, chasing every tip, and lead that comes in. We are working one step at a time to make sure we don't miss anything." Said Sheriff Chris Elliott.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Wagoner County Sheriff's Office.
