Oklahoma City homicide victims identified

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Police on Wednesday released the names of two more people killed in a quadruple homicide Monday evening outside a cluster of mobile homes in southeastern Oklahoma City.

The bodies of Amy Jeanne Wright, 26, and James Donald Swindle, Jr., 49, were among four found Monday evening outside the mobile homes located behind an automotive repair shop.

James D. Alderson, Jr., 57, of Del City and another man were also killed.

Police have identified the fourth victim, but were withholding his name until relatives could be notified, Capt. Jeffrey Becker said.

Wright, Swindle and the fourth victim lived in one of the mobile homes, Becker said.

The bodies were found about 6:30 p.m. Monday by police officers flagged down by neighbors who reported hearing gunshots.

Detectives were examining a security video taken from a nearby car lot that appeared to show a dark minivan entering the repair shop's yard about 6:15 p.m. Monday, then leaving a short time later.

Becker said detectives think the shootings occurred about 6:15, but were not ready to release a vehicle description.

The deaths are the city's largest homicide case in 13 years, officers said.

The last time officers dealt with this many murder victims was May 16, 1992, when five women were found stabbed to death in a northeast-side drug house, Becker said.

Danny Keith Hooks was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death in that case.
