From KOTV 6, The bodies of missing teen Caitlin Elizabeth Wooten and her alleged abductor Jerry Don Savage were spotted by troopers who were searching for them in an Oklahoma Highway Patrol helicopter shortly before 10 am.
Officials in Ada say the bodies of Caitlin Elizabeth Wooten and Jerry Don Savage were spotted by troopers who were searching for them in an Oklahoma Highway Patrol helicopter shortly before 10 am.
Ada spokesman Mark Bratcher says the troopers guided a search team on the ground to the partially wooded area in Pontotoc County six miles southwest of Ada. Bratcher says each of the victims died from gunshot wounds, but it wasn’t known how long they had been dead.
As posted yesterday, an Amber Alert issues for 16 year old Caitlin Elizabeth Wooten who had been taken at gun point by Jerry Don Savage. Less than 24 hours later both are found dead from gun shot wounds.
A truly sad ending to an all to common situation in this country that could have been prevented. Reportedly, there was a restraining order against Jerry Don Savage, the ex-boy friend of Caitlin Elizabeth Wooten’s mother. He had allegedly kidnapped or had attempted to kidnap Caitlin’s mother.
Court records show Savage had a protective order filed against him on August 30th. We’re told he is the ex-boyfriend of Wooten’s mother.
This country needs to figure out a better way of how to protect children and those that actually obey the laws. Authorities need to figure out that “THE INNOCENT HAVE RIGHT TO!!!”. A piece of “protective order” paper is worth about as much as the paper it is written on to a person who does not care about the law. We need to start treating these individuals as the CRIMINALS they are and not worrying about their rights.
