OSBI Investigates Double Homicide
BOLEY, OK-- Boley Police find a couple dead inside their home on the outskirts of Boley, a small town in Okfuskee County. OSBI was called to assist with the investigation. OSBI officials have identified the victims as Denver Holloway, 54 and his wife, Martha Holloway, 53.
Chief Jerry Page of Boley Police Department says he received a call Monday afternoon from Denver Holloway's employer, who was concerned when Holloway did not show up at work. Chief Page says at about 1:30 PM Monday, he stopped by The Holloways home off Highway 62 for a welfare check.
"As I approached the house," Chief Page recalled, "I noticed the window blinds were open."
Chief Page says as he peeked through the window he saw Denver Holloway's body.
"There was dried blood that had been coming out of the victim's mouth and nose," he described.
Chief Page says when he took a closer look at Holloway's body, it appeared Holloway was shot in the chest. Authorities found Martha Holloway's body shortly afterward. Chief Page says it appeared the couple had been dead for a few days. Their death has many neighbors stunned.
"It's very terrifying," said Doris Wiebe, who lives next door to the couple.
Wiebe describes her neighborhood as safe and quiet, she described the Holloways as a friendly couple who always waved at her and her four boys as they drove down the street. As she looks at the Holloway's home down the road, she's still stunned Boley's first homicide in nearly half decade happened on her street.
"This is just too close for comfort," she said.
Although the double homicide leaves neighbors shaken, OSBI says the leads in this case are promising.
"It certainly is a solvable crime," said Jessica Brown, a spokesperson for OSBI, "and we're certainly going to do our best to get someone behind bars as soon as possible."
Chief Page says one possible lead points authorities toward a member of the Holloway family.
"The son-- Ross Holloway, is a person of interest," he said.
Chief Page says Ross Holloway lives with his parents, and had a rocky relationship with his father.
"There had been some altercations in the past," he said.
Anyone with information on this case should call the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.

KINGFISHER, Okla. (AP) -- Authorities continue to search for a Kingfisher teenager who disappeared after jumping into Uncle John Creek.
Police say 17-year-old Taylor Faine jumped into the creek Thursday and did not resurface. Kingfisher Fire Chief Randy Poindexter told The Oklahoman (http://bit.ly/10s2oB6 ) on Saturday that manmade dams have been built in hopes of finding Faine's body.
Authorities say Faine was swimming with friends in an area where no swimming signs are in place because of dangerous currents in the creek.
