In this article, you will get all the information regarding Four dead at Oklahoma pot farm were ‘executed’ Chinese citizens, police say

Police have identified a suspect in the killing of four people over the weekend in an Oklahoma marijuana farm but said they were not releasing names as it could put more people at risk.
Authorities said the three men and a woman, who were Chinese citizens, were “executed” on the 10-acre property west of Hennessey, about 90 miles northwest of Oklahoma City. A fifth victim, also a Chinese citizen, was injured and transported to an Oklahoma City hospital.

Next of kin notification was still pending “due to a significant language barrier”, police said.

Authorities have a suspect in mind, but the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) is withholding the name for now to avoid putting others at risk.

“The suspect was inside this building for a considerable time before the executions began,” OBSI said in a news release Tuesday.

“Based on the investigation so far, this does not appear to be a random incident.”

State police said Tuesday the victims were shot.

OBSI Captain Stan Florence said the day before that authorities believed the suspect knew the victims, who were found dead on Sunday evening.

“They all know each other,” Florence said.

“I don’t know if they’re related or if they’re colleagues, but we think these people definitely all knew each other.”

Authorities have not identified the victims. The case is being investigated as a quadruple homicide.

The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control is also investigating the deaths.

The agency has targeted criminal cultivation and the trafficking of marijuana for the black market in recent years. But agency spokesman Mark Woodward said Tuesday it was too early to say it was the focus of that investigation.

“This is a marijuana farm, obviously Oklahoma state law requires that they have a license from the Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority and us,” Woodward said.

“One of the things we look at is, was it obtained legally or was it obtained by fraud? So that will be part of our investigation.

Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Authority spokeswoman Porsha Riley said there is an active license for a medical marijuana grow operation at the site.

None of the 14 marijuana grow operations in the Hennessey area responded to email inquiries from The Associated Press, and officials did not identify which one operated at the site of the shooting.

The Kingfisher County Sheriff’s Office initially responded to a reported lodging situation at the farm and requested assistance from state authorities, Florence said.

Police searched the property Sunday night and Monday, using drones and helicopters and in the field, but did not find the suspect, Florence said.

“There’s a lot to unravel with this case,” he said. “It will take us some time to process it.”

oklahoma voters legalized medical marijuana In 2018, the industry quickly exploded thanks to an indefinite law that put in place fewer restrictions than in other states.

In March, voters will decide whether or not to legalize recreational drug use.

Maryland and Missouri approved recreational marijuana in this month’s midterm elections, bringing the total number of states that allow recreational use to 21. Voters in Arkansas, North Dakota and South Dakota rejected midterm legalization proposals.
