OTTAWA COUNTY, Okla. – Oklahoma authorities offer a reward for information that can help agents in the 1974 murder of Tina Mae Duffell.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation is offering $10,000 in the case.

On October 18, 1974, Duffell, 37, was found submerged by timber and brush in Prairie Dog Pond. That’s about a half-mile northwest of Quapaw, Oklahoma.

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assistance in the investigation. Authorities believe someone either abducted her or she left with someone from the C and D grocery store in Quapaw. That’s where she was working at the time of her murder.

An autopsy showed she had stab wounds to her neck.
