Anadarko, Oklahoma – Christ Holy Sanctified Church was the scene of a murder inside sources have called “horrific“. Silkey Wilson and his wife arrived at the church just before noon on Sunday to meet Daniels for Sunday School. But the doors were locked. They tried knocking on the door and honking the horn of Daniels’ car parked outside but did not get a response. So they walked to the nearby police station. That’s when Anadarko officers made entry into the church and discovered Daniels’ body. She had suffered several “sharp force injuries” and her body was staged in an unnatural position. To add to the mystery of what exactly was done to Daniels, District Attorney Bret Burns called the crime scene the worst he’d ever seen in 17 years as a prosecutor – but he would not say why.

Investigators have no suspects but are reviewing video surveillance tapes from a convenience store located nearby and sending images to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation lab for enhancement. They spent 15 hours at the scene, removing a back door from the church. While law enforcement have are keeping mum on a possible motive, or if they feel Daniels was specifically targeted, they did meet with local pastors on Wednesday and warned them to take security precautions. District Attorney Bret Burns did reveal why the meeting was just with clergy.

My condolences to the Daniels’ family. It’s one thing to lose a loved one to murder, but to then have the murderer use their body in some twisted mind fuck is pretty damned low. Jack Levin, a professor of sociology and criminology at Northeastern University in Boston, said that the body was more than likely staged because “the killer wants the notoriety,” Levin said. “He knows that by staging the victim’s body, that it will freak out a population of people, terrify them. He intends to do it again and wants credit for what he’s done.”

Investigators have also offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case. A vigil to honor Pastor Daniels will be Friday at 7 p.m. at the Greater First Baptist Church of Anadarko, 502 E Washington. The public is welcome to attend. Daniels funeral will be at the Greater New Zion Baptist Church in Oklahoma City on Monday, August at 1 p.m.
