The investigation into a Tulsa newspaper carrier's confessions continues. Tulsa Police investigators are asking for permission to exhume the body of one woman Paul Williford says he killed.

The state medical examiner's office says a letter has been sent to the Craig County district attorney that says Geraldine Lawhorn was buried without proper certification of death. Police reports show Williford confessed to killing Lawhorn and 73-year-old Donna Stauffer after being arrested for sexually assaulting and trying to kill a third woman. All three lived on Williford's newspaper route.

He is being held in the Tulsa County jail on more than one million dollars bond.
