Oklahoma Highway Patrol Troopers helped capture a man wanted in connection with a suspicious death in Muldrow on Monday. The suspect, whose name had not yet been officially released as of 8:30 p.m. Monday, is wanted for questioning about the death of a 62-year-old Muldrow resident. Muldrow police were at the scene on Monday evening, and unavailable for comment. The call for help in the pursuit of the suspect went out at 4:35 p.m. Monday, and the OHP joined in the chase about two miles east of Sallisaw at the request of the Muldrow Police Department. The troopers were able to herd the suspect, who was driving a 1997 four-door Mazda, off U.S.Highway 64 at its intersection with Interstate 40, on Sallisaw's east side, at 4:50 p.m. No one was injured in the apprehension, and troopers reported the suspect surrendered without incident. Sallisaw Police Chief Terry Franklin praised the troopers for stopping the suspect because the pursuit came into Sallisaw shortly before going-home traffic hit the streets.
