DIBBLE, Okla. — McClain County authorities say a man has been found shot to death in a pasture near Dibble and two suspects are in custody.

Sheriff Don Hewett told reporters that the man’s body was found Monday with a gunshot wound to the head. Hewett says the body was wrapped in sheets and was under a panel of steel when it was found.

The sheriff said the body was sent to the state medical examiner for identification and also said the owner of a home on the property was reported missing five days ago.

Hewett said a 48-year-old woman and a 20-year-old man were arrested Monday night in Oklahoma City in connection with the death.
