Joe Denoyer - August 15, 2016 6:30 pm


Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents continued Monday to follow leads gained from the Knowles home of an alleged homicide victim who was likely killed between late on Friday and early on Saturday.

According to OSBI Spokesman Jessica Brown, 47-year old Jesus Estrada was found stabbed to death in home
“We are investigating the death as a homicide and no one has been arrested,” Brown said.

Brown did not indicate anything about a possible suspect, but did suggest the agent was following leads gained at the home where the man’s body was discovered.

So far agents have served several search warrants, but no arrest have been made.

 The man was discovered in or near his home late Saturday by his employer. Beaver County deputies reportedly responded to the home and secured the scene late Saturday evening.



The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spent Sunday morning processing evidence from a possible murder scene in the Beaver County community of Knowles.

A man, whose name has not been released, was found dead in his home by his employer late Saturday.

It is thought the man was killed sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning, according to law enforcement officials.

OSBI agents are following some leads using evidence gathered from the scene, but they have not officially identified a suspect.

Knowles is small community located on Highway 64 some 10 miles west of Gate in Beaver County.
