OKLAHOMA CITY – Autopsies on two girls gunned down while walking on a country road show one had five gunshot wounds and the other had eight.
The state Medical Examiner's office Friday released autopsy results on 11-year-old Skyla Jade Whitaker and her friend, 13-year-old Taylor Paschal-Placker. They were killed on June 8 a half-mile north of Taylor's home in the small town of Weleetka, 70 miles south of Tulsa. No arrests have been made.
The younger girl had eight wounds to the arms, chest, abdomen and neck, and the older girl had five gunshot wounds to the head, groin and hand.
Investigators say two different guns were used, leading to the presumption at least two people were involved. The isolated nature of the crime scene has led investigators to theorize local people might have been involved. No motive has been identified.
