Tonight the case of Gary Don Edwards: On October 31, 2006, officers from the Marlow, Oklahoma Police Department were dispatched to the home of 25-year-old Gary Don Edwards in response to a domestic dispute reported by Gary’s wife, Heather. The initial officers to arrive located Gary a short distance from the residence. Police reports of the incident indicate that Gary was in an intoxicated condition. He was arrested for public intoxication, taken to the station, and booked in at 6:40PM.
At 9 p.m., Gary was found hanging from his T-shirt, which was tied to a window grate.
However, Donna Edwards and her husband Gary, Sr., weren’t convinced that their son had taken his own life. They began to ask questions and review documents. The family believe's his death was a homicide.
In 2009, the family retained Forensic Solutions, LLC of Sitka, Alaska to do an independent forensic examination. They issued a report highly critical of the investigation into Gary’s death, including the autopsy. Forensic Solutions recommended that its report be given to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation as the basis for further investigation. They also suggested that Gary’s body be disinterred for a second, independent autopsy. The requests were made, but the OSBI declined to do anything further.
Edwards family remains committed to finding out what happened to Gary at the Marlow police department that night.
And we will update listeners on the Bud Foglesong case.
