(Locust Grove) – The OSBI is increasing the reward for information involving the murders of Jack and Elaine Denney. The two were found dead inside their Cherokee County home Christmas day. The couple had been shot to death.

A few days after the murder, OSBI offered up to a $5,000 reward for information on the case. The bureau is now increasing that amount to the highest allowed by law – up to $10,000. Reward money is paid to the person(s) who provide information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for this crime.

“Investigators believe there is someone in the area who knows something about what happened and are asking that person to come forward,” Jessica Brown, OSBI Public Information Officer, says.

Anyone with helpful information should call either the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office at 918-456-2583, the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017, or leave a tip on the OSBI website tip line by logging on to osbi.state.ok.us.
