“There is proof that Jesse McFadden killed six individuals before committing suicide. Beyond that, I have no idea what he was thinking, Prentice said. “I follow the evidence, and I don’t have any evidence about what the motive was,” the speaker said.
Ivy Webster, Brittany Brewer, Rylee Allen, Tiffany Guess, Michael Mayo, and Holly McFadden were the six victims.
After Jesse McFadden skipped his long-awaited jury trial on Monday in Muskogee County, authorities started a search. His wife, her son and daughters, as well as two other teenagers who were spending the weekend with the family, were among the victims.
Authorities went to the McFadden property on Monday, which is roughly 90 miles east of Oklahoma City and close to the town of Henryetta, and there they found the bodies.
Prentice said at the press conference that Webster, Brewer, and Allen’s remains were located separately, 150 yards apart, and a quarter-mile away from the McFadden home.
According to Prentice, the remaining four corpses were found beside the other three victims, around 450 yards away.
Holly McFadden, the wife of Jesse McFadden, bought a 9mm pistol in January 2022, according to Prentice.
Hours before his trial on felony charges of soliciting and possessing images of child sex abuse was scheduled to start, McFadden sent his young accuser a series of ominous text messages that suggested he blamed her for ending his “great life” and that he was determined not to go to jail again. At the same time, the shooting took place.
He claimed to be successful at his marketing position and to be “making great money,” according to screen captures of the correspondence that the now 23-year-old woman McFadden reportedly nurtured from jail and provided to KOKI-TV in Tulsa.
He texted, “Now it’s all gone.” I promised not to return, I said.
He said, “This is all on you for continuing this.”
A solicitation conviction carries a potential 10-year term, while a pornography offence carries a potential 20-year penalty.
Larry Edwards, the district attorney for Muskogee County, said that the young lady also gave him access to the texts.
Now, the victims’ families are wondering why McFadden, who was given a 20-year sentence in 2003 for first-degree rape in the sexual assault of a 17-year-old, was released three years early due in part to good behaviour, despite being accused of using a stolen cell phone to exchange nude photos with the woman when she was 16 in 2016. Despite the accusations having the potential to send him back to jail for many years if found guilty, he was freed in 2020 after serving 16 years and 9 months.
And they hastened his release from custody. How?” Holly McFadden’s mother Janette Mayo questioned. She said that she was informed that Rylee Elizabeth Allen, 17, Michael James Mayo, 15, and Tiffany Dore Guess, 13, had all been shot to death along with her daughter.
“Oklahoma didn’t safeguard families. And as a result, my daughter and my grandkids are all no longer with me,” Mayo told The Associated Press. “I lost my daughter and my grandchildren, and I’ll never get to see them or hold them, and it’s killing me,” the man said.
Similar worries about McFadden’s release were voiced by Justin Webster, who said he didn’t know anything about the man’s record when he let his 14-year-old daughter Ivy Webster to attend a sleepover at his house.
Tuesday in Henryetta, Webster gave The AP a tearful interview in which she expressed her desire to “tell Ivy’s story and our story and get our government officials and everybody to start speaking up loud and keeping those pedophiles in jail.” “To get to save some other children, to make a change is what I want to do,” Webster said.
Someone must be held responsible, and there must be consequences. They let a monster to escape. They accomplished this, according to Webster.
In spite of the fact that McFadden was facing further felony charges, an Oklahoma Department of Corrections official did not immediately reply to a request for comment on the matter on Wednesday.
Prosecutors opposed his early release from jail due to the fact that he forced a 17-year-old girl into a sexual assault by cutting off her shirt and tying her wrists and feet to bedposts. The documents reveal that he once threatened to stab her if she “did not shut up.”
Republican state representative Justin Humphrey, who serves as the head of his chamber’s Criminal Judiciary Committee, is concerned about the situation. In a text message, he said that he and another senator are working on legislation to “stop tragedies of this nature from occurring again.”
He said that the investigation would also look at how McFadden was allowed to have contact with children while under sex offender monitoring and how a person may commit sex offences while serving a sentence in jail and yet be eligible for release on good behaviour.
According to court documents, McFadden was charged with the fresh offences in 2017 as a result of the young woman’s relative informing authorities. His trial was frequently postponed, in part because to the COVID-19 epidemic, after he was freed on bail in October 2020. He was then arrested the following month and released on $25,000 bond.
In May 2022, McFadden married Holly Guess; it’s unclear what she may have known about his past. Mayo said that it wasn’t until a few months ago that the family discovered her son-in-law’s criminal past.
The father of Brittany Brewer acknowledged that his daughter was one of the victims. It’s simply a parent’s worst nightmare, and I’m experiencing it, Nathan Brewer said during a candlelight vigil on Monday night.
According to a database kept by The AP, USA Today, and Northeastern University in collaboration, the sombre finding might bring the total number of fatalities from mass murders to beyond 100 for the year.
