BI)--Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation fingerprint analysts have positively identified a body found by hunters in a wooded area in Kingfisher County on Nov. 30. Analysts reportedly lifted fingerprints from the badly decomposed body and matched them with prints of 41 year old Michael Don Lea. According to an OSBI news release, Lea was driving a stolen vehicle and was involved in a pursuit with Piedmont Police Department officers in September. Officers lost sight of the vehicle, and short time later they found the abandoned truck just north of Waterloo Road. OSBI fingerprint analysts also matched fingerprints lifted from the stolen truck to Lea. The Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office is performing an autopsy to determine Lea's cause and manner of death.

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — A judge has refused to move the trial of a woman charged with crashing into spectators at the Oklahoma State homecoming parade and killing four. The Payne County district judge on Tuesday turned down the request by attorneys for 26-year-old Adacia Chambers. Defense attorneys argued that Chambers couldn't get a fair trial in Payne County because of pretrial publicity. Judge Stephen Kistler also rejected other motions, including one to suppress statements made by Chambers, who witnesses said commented about being suicidal following the October 2015 crash. Other motions denied include one to suppress autopsy photos of victims and to order the families of victims not to show emotion while in court. Chambers has pleaded not guilty to four counts of second-degree murder and 42 counts of assault and battery.

MW)--Production on the movie, “Wildlife,” is about to wrap up in Enid. The public is invited to a send-off party for the movie crew on Saturday from 7:00-8:30 pm at Simpson’s Old Time Museum, 228 E Randolph. “Wildlife” is based upon the novel by Richard Ford and follows a boy as he watches his parents’ marriage fall apart after his mother finds another man. It’s the first movie directed by actor Paul Dano and stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Carey Mulligan and Ed Oxenbould. The movie is based in Montana but a significant portion was filmed in Enid. The send-off party is the community’s chance to meet the people involved in the making of the movie and thank them for choosing Enid as their set location. Filming in Enid will end sometime next week. Producers have said “Wildlife” will likely premier at a film festival with the hopes of a general release toward the end of 2017. There is no guarantee that any of the film’s on-screen talent will be in attendance. Light snacks and hot drinks will be provided by Visit Enid, and Simpson’s Old Time Museum, will have sarsaparilla available for sale.
