UNDATED -- The body of a Sapulpa soldier killed in Afghanistan returned home Friday.  Sergeant Kirk Owen was killed last week while on patrol.

The 37-year-old father of two was on his second tour of duty.  He was one of four soldiers killed in the deadliest week Oklahoma's National Guard has faced since the September 11th terror attacks.
