Authorities ID Logan Co. homicide victim

GUTHRIE — Authorities have identified the homicide victim discovered earlier this year in a grass fire.

Logan County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Richard Stephens said the victim has been identified as Shawn Luther Masters, of Blanchard. The identification was made through citizens watching media reports that described Masters.

“Mr. Masters’ family has been notified and numerous investigators are in the process of moving forward with this investigation,” Stephens said. “The LCSO and OSBI want to thank all of the media agencies and personnel for their assistance in identifying the victim of this terrible crime.”

Developments in the case have included the release of a forensic sketch and information related to a unique tattoo on the victim of a bull’s skull with a snake and a tattoo of the seal of the Cherokee Nation on the chest.

At about 2:30 p.m. Jan. 31, the Langston Fire Department responded to a reported grass fire south of the intersection of County Road 75 and Hiwassee in Logan County.

Stephens said in a previous report a firefighter at the scene discovered an adult’s body in the fire. It was extinguished and personnel from the Logan County Sheriff’s Office responded.

In a previous report, medical examiner’s office spokesman Eddie Johnson said the agency has performed an autopsy and a cause and manner of death were pending further studies. The agency worked with the OSBI and University of North Texas DNA experts in efforts to make an identification.

Stephens said the homicide investigation by the sheriff’s department and the OSBI can now move forward with the ID of Masters.
