A body was discovered today, April 7th, in a Gans, OK residence that burned in late March, according to the Sequoyah County Sheriff's office.  Law enforcement agencies are currently waiting for a search warrant and a crime scene unit. Foul play has not been ruled out at this time.  This is the second burned body that has been discovered in Sequoyah County in the last three days. The incidents do not appear to be related. 
UPDATED 9:40 pm: According to additional information obtained from authorities the body was discovered by the next door neighbor to the burned residence. The house fire had occurred on March 25, 2014. Both the OSBI and the State Fire Marshal were contacted. When authorities entered the home they discovered a burned, decomposing body lying on the floor of a back bedroom, according to Sequoyah County Sheriff Ron Lockhart. The body was taken to the Medical Examiner's office in Tulsa for an autopsy to determine the cause of death. Sheriff Lockhart stated that authorities are investigating a report of a male subject that was seen fleeing the residence after a fight that had occurred one hour before the fire was reported. Gans police investigated the fight but have been unable to locate the subject that fled.
