Jordon's Mom wrote this story on our site about her wonderful daughter:
It's the most surreal thing to do a google search for your child's name and find sites like this. You click on the link's and stare in disbelief because that isn't supposed to be your child's beautiful face looking back at you from the screen. But it is. It's my beautiful little girl. Thank you so much for posting this on your site. I seem to be at a loss for words now-a-days so please forgive me if I muddle this all up. But I'd love to tell you a little about Jordon if I could.
She's currently 15 years old. She has the most wonderful smile you've ever seen. And a contagious laugh. Ever since she was a baby she'll giggle and laugh and pretty soon the entire room is laughing right along with her. She plays the Cello and the Guitar. She played with the Austin Chamber Music Center for several years. I've been so proud of her. She has ADD and the last year and half have been hard for her because we didn't realize what it was. So her grades were failing and she was having a hard time concentrating. But, we got that corrected and I'm so proud to say that if she hadn't gone missing she would have passed the 10th grade without having to go to summer school this year.
AND, check this out... we got her TAKS test results and she passed EVERYTHING, even the hard math parts, with above average scores. I wish she was here so I could tell her about it. She doesn't know yet how great she was doing. She's worked so hard. She has a heart as big as all outdoors. She loves animals of all kinds. She has a thing for goats. LOL... I don't know why but she just loves them so much! You've never been on a real trip until you are in a car heading to north Texas, drive for 18 hours because you took a wrong turn (we should have been there in 12 hours), and every 5 to 20 miles you hear a squeal in the back seat from a teenager going "Oooh look at the goats! Look! It's goats!! They're sooooo cute!!" Simply amazing! She won't even kill a bug unless I'm freaking out because it's one of those big yucky water bugs and then she'll save the day for me.
We wrestle and laugh and watch movies and talk and read. We got down to the Barnes and Noble bookstore down here and sit together, read our book, drink a coffee and chat. It's one of our favorite things to do together.
Jordon is my miracle. She's my only child. I am so lost without her. I go to her room several times a day and just stand in the doorway. I keep thinking that if I stand there long enough she'll somehow just be there. Especially at night. I go in and expect to see her sleeping. Anyway, I just want to thank you so much for putting Jordon's information out there. It means a lot to me.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Thank you again. Jordon's Mom

'Person of interest' sketch released in Murder of 2 Weleetka OK girls.

'Person of interest' sketch released

WELEETKA, OKLA. -- A "person of interest" sketch was released today during a 2 p.m. press conference on the deaths of Taylor Paschal-Placker and Skyla Whitaker in Weleetka.
The sketch is of an American Indian man, about 6-feet-tall with black hair in a ponytail and around 35-years-old, said the Oklahoma State Bureau Investigators spokesperson Jessica Brown said.

"We just want to talk to him," Brown said. "We think he might have seen something that can help us resolve this case." According to Brown, the man is not considered a suspect and the OSBI have several names they are investigating as leads.

A witness reported to OSBI agents that the sketched man was standing outside of a single-cab Chevy or Ford white pickup truck on the same road the girls were shot, right around the time the girls were killed.

"We had several witnesses who saw the man and several other witnesses who heard gun shots," Brown said.
Brown said that each day brings more information from various witnesses that could help bring the case to an end.

"I feel confident this is a solvable case," she said.

The girls were shot several times after going to take a walk Sunday afternoon down a dirt road near Taylor's home.

Officials ask that if you have any information regarding the case to call the OSBI Hotline at 1-800-522-8017.
