7 victims found following search for missing teens
The search for two missing teenagers in Henryetta ended with a tragic discovery by investigators.
Seven bodies, including the bodies of the two missing girls, were found on a property east of Henryetta.
On Monday, authorities sought the whereabouts of Ivy Webster, 14, and Brittany Brewer, 16, who were reported missing by their families late Sunday evening.
Early Monday, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol issued an endangered missing person advisory on behalf of the Okmulgee County Sheriff ’s office for the missing teens, who were possibly traveling with 39-year-old Jesse McFadden.
The body of McFadden was also discovered at the home, along with four other victims, and the two teens.
The other victims were unofficially identified by a close relative as McFadden’s wife, Holly McFadden, 35 and her children, Rylee Elizabeth Allen, 17; Michael James Mayo, 15; and Tiffany Dore Guess, 13.
Early in the investigation, and based on information provided by Ivy’s parents, OCSO deputies learned that Ivy had left Saturday to spend the weekend with a friend. Ivy was to return home on Sunday by 5 p.m. and did not do so.
Ivy, along with Brittany, were reported to be staying with Holly McFadden, and her daughter Tiffany.
Originally it was believed the family was en route to the McAlester area to work on a ranch, but they never arrived there.
McFadden’s white Chevrolet Avalanche truck with black wheels was being sought during the investigation, but was discovered later near the property where the bodies were located.
Due to the complexity of the case, the OCSO sought the assistance of the District 25 Violent Crime Task Force to assist with the investigation.
The search for the two teens and McFadden ended after a warrant at the McFadden home yielded the tragedy that claimed the lives of the victims.
Monday evening, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation was assisting the District 25 Task Force in collecting evidence around the property, as positive identification of all the victims was made by the State Medical Examiner.
Oklahoma Department of Corrections prison records show Jesse McFadden was convicted of first-degree rape in 2003 and released in October 2020.
In 2017, he was charged in Muskogee County for using a contraband cell phone while in prison to have sexual conversations with an underage girl. McFadden was accused of sharing texts, videos and photos with the girl.
He was scheduled to appear in court Monday for a jury trial on charges of soliciting sexual conduct with a minor and possession of child pornography. A warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to show.
