A man is in jail being held in connection with the murder of a Rogers County woman last month. Chance Barrett was arraigned Thursday, September 15.

Pasdach was found by her grandson at her Claremore-area home in her recliner with a gunshot wound. Investigators say Barrett has been the prime suspect since the August 21st murder of Helen Pasdach.

Security camera video from a nearby home saw a vehicle drive by Pasdach's home several times then pull into the driveway, according to law enforcement.  Authorities say the vehicle appears to be one that Barrett is known to drive.

He was booked into the jail last month on other complaints. Investigators say while in custody at Rogers County Jail, Barrett confessed to killing Pasdach to other inmates and knew details detectives say they hadn't released.

 Authorities said he is a known drug dealer and a suspect in multiple burglaries in the area.
