Garvin County Oklahoma Meets Murphy's Justice in the Unsolved Murder of Sheila Deviney

In Gavin County, Oklahoma, a new sheriff by the name of Larry Rhodes was elected with promises to change the good old boys style justice.  In the fall of 2010, the Turner, Deviney and Horton families, (also known as the Garvin County Three) and myself were assured the cases would each be re-opened and investigated if and when Mr. Rhodes got elected.   

I wanted to give the now Sheriff Rhodes time to get settled into his new office, elected in case it slipped his mind, by the people.  He fought a good race and won because citizens in the community believed in his voice and action for change.  Last week I learned that Sheriff Rhodes has no intention of re-opening and investigating the Sheila Deviney unsolved homicide case.

Below is a new episode of Murphy's Justice with Cold case Director Sheryl McCollum and former prosecutor, now defense attorney Holley Hughes featuring the Sheila Deviney case.

Please take a moment if you would and go to YOU TUBE and comment on the show it will go a long way for these unsolved cases.

Efforts will resume to have this case re-opened with or without the cooperation of Garvin County officials who continue to operate in an 1850's wild west cowboy mentality.

Sheila Deviney was murdered and the person(s) responsible are living in the community, getting away with murder all because intimate partner homicide isn't viewed as a serious crime!

Shiela Deviney (right), 30, died on January 6, 2004, when hemobile home, located about one mile east and one mile south of Maysville, Oklahoma, burned to the ground. She was murdered. It should be no surprise that Sheila had been married to an abusive, controlling man. They had a court date over past-due child support scheduled the next day. According to eye witnesses, her ex-husband was at the home, although by law not allowed on the premises. He and another friend destroyed evidence and took items from the home.

Murphy's Justice is an American television series featuring cases of intimate partner violence, stalking homicide and those who suddenly vanish without a trace. An investigation television program with top experts in their field from around the country.  It is devoted to missing mothers, unsolved and suspicious deaths, mothers and women leaving their abusive relationships along with solutions for those involved in domestic violence relationships.  Show host Susan Murphy-Milano connects the dots bringing a voice to those silenced behind closed doors in this country. 

Document The Abuse for anyone involved in an abusive relationship,
it contains vital information on how the "EAA"can support each case of abuse from the perspective of the first responder's and advocates, to an appearance in court.  It explains the legal benefits to the abuse victim, whether they are able to testify or not, how their words are forever documented and hold up in court, much like a Living Will.  It is a voice that would have brought justice for Sheila Deviney and other silenced by those who once professed to love them.

Good Morning! Sheriff Rhodes: 'Sounds like politics as usual.... You might as well appoint Barney Fife! We have to fire " the sheriff and "fire up" the political will of the community. However, I don't see this happening in small rural communities... So.... you have to go much higher up on the food chain! This episode of "Murphy's Justice"... Susan, you did Sheila proud!
