Nothing Recovered from Skiatook Pond, Murder Investigation Continues

Dive teams from Tulsa County are wrapping up their search for evidence at a Skiatook pond near the murder and robbery of an elderly man last week.

Skiatook Police Detective Shane Thompson said nothing was recovered from the search Tuesday and officials plan to be done with that specific pond by the end of the day.

Searchers are scheduled to return and comb other locations on Wednesday as authorities continue to look for evidence in the murder of 83-year-old Ken Cooper, who was shot in the chest and later died after an apparent robbery last week.

Aaron King and Amanda Auten were arrested by Skiatook Police in connection with the case on Monday.

They were arraigned in Osage County on Tuesday.

Authorities are continuing their investigation into the case.
