Pawnee County Sheriff deputies were requested to check the welfare of a man who lived in the 35000 block of W. Basin Road in Mannford on June 18.

Deputies found Ward Ray Bartlett, 60, dead inside his home. They also found another man dead inside the home. The medical examiner's office has confirmed that man to be 53-year-old Don Ray Stanford.
