CORDELL, Okla. – OSBI is now investigating the death of a man as homicide.

Michael Beach, 59, was discovered dead in his home in the 400 block of S. Orient this week. Police say they found him during a welfare check at the request of his friend.

Several gunshot wounds were located on his body, says the medical examiner’s office.

Now, investigators are searching for Beach’s missing 2002 white Chevrolet Tahoe with a license plate number 412FPS. Authorities say it is being considered as stolen.

Kathryn Hicks, 44, is also being sought after by authorities for questioning. Agents believe that because she was friends with Beach, she might be able to help them in their investigation.

If anyone has information on her whereabouts or where to locate the stolen Tahoe, please call the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.
