Walker said investigators haven't found a specific motive or suspects yet. They are looking for evidence in Parks' 2007 four-door Chevrolet Impala.

Court records show that Parks was arrested during a traffic stop for possession of marijuana and Xanax in November, 2014. According to his Facebook profile, he went to Broken Arrow High School and is the father of a young girl.
