Two bodies discovered in a Muldrow area house fire on Sunday have been positively identified as David Marr, 54, of Muldrow and Angela Hendricks, 44, also of Muldrow.
On Thursday Sequoyah County Sheriff Larry Lane revealed that Marr’s death has been ruled a homicide. The cause of death according to the medical examiner was gunshot wounds.
Hendricks cause of death remains undetermined at this time.
Deputies were dispatched to the residence after firefighters discovered the bodies. OSBI and other agencies were called to aid in the investigation.
In October both Marr and Hendricks were arrested during a drug raid conducted by the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Homeland Security. Three other Sequoyah County residents, including Marr’s son, were arrested in the joint drug raid.
At the time Lane stated that the warrants were the culmination of a three-month investigation into methamphetamine distribution in Sequoyah County tagged as “Operation Like Father, Like Son.” Marr was believed to be responsible for “a very large amount of methamphetamine that has been distributed in Sequoyah County for quite some time.”
Investigators are still interviewing possible witnesses and the investigation is ongoing. Arson has been ruled as the cause of the fire.
