Dead bodies found of missing people from Temple in Oklahoma
The Temple Police Department has learned that 2 bodies found in Oklahoma this afternoon were those of Temple residents Jenna Scott and Michael Swearingin who have been reported missing since January 3rd.
Last week Cedric Marks the ex-boyfriend of Jenna Scott was arrested in Michigan as a case involving his then ex-girlfriend's disappearance (she has never been found) that was closed back in 2009, re-opened.
Although police did confirm Scott and Marks were once in a relationship, Temple PD have stated that Marks is not a suspect in this particular case.
Authorities with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation reportedly found the bodies on property in Okfusee County, OK while searching the area at the request of Temple police. A homicide investigation is now underway in that county, and the Texas Rangers are assisting.
Temple PD spokeswoman Ellen Morton said the department could not release further information, as they are concerned with protecting the integrity of the investigation.
