During a search for two teenage girls reported missing with an adult male s** offender, Oklahoma police turned up a grim scene at a rural property near the town of Henryetta: seven dead bodies.
Eventually, police identified three of the bodies as belonging to the two girls they were looking for, Ivy Webster, 14, and Brittany Brewer, 16, along with Jesse McFadden, the convicted rapist with whom authorities said the teens had been travelling.
Now, a family member of the other four victims has identified them as her 35-year-old daughter and three grandchildren, and revealed that the missing teens were friends of the family who had been staying over for a sleepover.
She also revealed that her daughter and McFadden were married, though the family didn’t know about his criminal history until a couple of months ago.
“My daughter loved her children. And, yes, she married the man who killed them. But she was fooled by his charm,” Janette Mayo said in a Tuesday Facebook post. “I hurt just like the other families, but he took my world from me.”
Police have not said if McFadden is suspected of killing the six other victims.
Mayo, 59, said the sheriff’s office notified her late Monday that the other four victims were her daughter, Holly Guess, and her grandchildren, Rylee Elizabeth Allen, 17; Michael James Mayo, 15; and Tiffany Dore Guess, 13. They were all found shot to death on the property, police told her.
