OSBI Offers Reward in Cordell Murder

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) is offering up to a $5,000 reward for information in the murder case of 36-year-old Tammi Thomas in Cordell. Thomas was shot to death inside her home in Cordell on July 20, 2017. Her 14-year-old son was wounded. He has since been released from an Oklahoma City Hospital. OSBI special agents and Washita County Sheriff's investigators have run dozens of leads. Last week, OSBI released information about the suspect having a blunt force trauma injury to his right forearm. That information helped generate leads, but agents have not identified a suspect at this point. If anyone has information that can help lead to the man who committed this murder they are asked to call the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.
