Neighbors: This isn't the first time we've found bodies here

Bodies of a man and a woman were discovered east of Henryetta Tuesday.

East of Henryetta, just off I-40 and Tiger Mountain Road, the roads get a little dusty and things are quieter.

Sue Chisum was born and raised here, and it's just the way she likes it.

"No gossip, nothing from town," said Chisum. "You're kind of isolated out here."

But that isolation can also draw the wrong kind of attention.

Like whoever left two bodies on the side of the road, not even a mile from Chisum's home Tuesday night.

The bodies were found not far away from I-40.

You won't find a whole lot of people who live out there, but the ones who do say this isn't the first time something like this has happened, And now, things are getting pretty scary.

Just ask George Arnold.

"It's scary living out here. It's really scary," said Arnold.

Like Chisum, he's lived there for a while now.

"18 years," said Arnold.

He said a few years back, not even a mile away from where these bodies were found, his daughter made a gruesome discovery of her own.

"She seen something rolled up in white," said Arnold.

Turns out, it was another body, this one burned.

Arnold said the area is known for suspicious activity.

SUVs parked along lonely roads in the middle of the night.

"White SUV, black SUV," said Arnold.

He said it's got his whole family scared.

"Oh yeah, we're going to move. Me and my wife have already talked about it," said Arnold.

As for Chisum, she's scared too but has no plans to move away from the place she calls home.

Investigators with the McIntosh County Sheriff's Office said they're waiting on the Medical Examiner to identify the bodies.
