A convicted rapist is suspected of killing six people and himself in Henryetta over the weekend according to Okmulgee Police and the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner's Office.

According to investigators, Jesse L. McFadden 39, appears to have murdered his wife, Holly McFadden, her children Tiffany Guess, Michael Mayo, and Rylee Allen, as well as Tiffany's friends Ivy Webster and Brittany Brewer. Police say all six victims were shot and killed. McFadden is suspected to have shot each of them before shooting himself in the head. Okmulgee Police Chief Joe Prentice stated that the weapon used was a 9mm handgun that had been bought by Holly McFadden in 2022.

Prentice said they are still investigating this case and could not provide a detailed timeline of what happened. He did say that, in his opinion, the victims appeared to have been moved to a wooded area behind the house after they were killed. Prentice said the exact motive for these murders is something that may never be known.

"I follow the evidence, and the evidence is that Jesse McFadden murdered six people and then killed himself," said Prentice.

Police found the victims while searching for Webster and Brewer who were last believed to be with Guess and her family. McFadden, a registered sex offender, was supposed to stand trial on Monday, May 1 for sending nude photos and having sexual conversations with a minor on a contraband cell phone while he was in prison, but he never showed up to court.

McFadden was convicted of rape in 2003 in Pittsburg County and sentenced to 20 years in prison. He was released after serving just under 17 years in 2020.
