Oneal’s body was found under a bridge on Cherokee Avenue and North Main Street, near the McAlester Recycling Center, according to the report.
Meanwhile first-degree manslaughter charges were filed Aug. 12 in Pittsburg County District Court against 18-year-old Keaton Bishop Lozano, of McAlester, in the death of Harvey Lee Crapo, 68.
Lozano is accused of driving while under the influence of an intoxicating substance when he allegedly hit Crapo with his vehicle on Carl Albert Parkway on the evening of Aug. 9. Crapo was in a motorized wheelchair at the time, charges allege.
Lozano, 18, was charged for first-degree manslaughter and misdemeanor possession of a controlled dangerous substance, marijuana, in connection with the death, according to a court affidavit filed in Pittsburg County District Court.
After the accident, police allegedly found Lozano walking out of a Sinclair store at 1400 Carl Albert Blvd., the affidavit states. Lozano’s vehicle was parked in front of the store with its airbags deployed and with front-end damage, according to the affidavit.
Officers allegedly found marijuana in Lozano’s pockets and he allegedly tested at 0.12 blood alcohol level, according to the affidavit.
If convicted, Lozano faces no less than four years in prison and a fines of up to $1,000. He is currently being held in Pittsburg County Jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.
McAlester Police Chief Gary Wansick said the three homicides occurring in such a short of a time span is highly unusual.
“We usually more like one a year, if that,” Wansick said.
