Camilla Ann Sullivan was found murdered in Oklahoma City on September 13, 1981. She was twenty-eight years old.

At about 1:00 in the afternoon of September 13th, a man and his son walking the archery range at Trosper Park found the decomposing remains of a woman. She was naked but wearing lots of jewelry. She was found under a bush on one of the range’s trails. She would later be identified as Camilla who had been last seen alive about four days before her body had been found. Camilla had been beaten to death. Given the fact that she still was wearing jewelry when she was found, police do not believe robbery was a motive in her murder.

A sketch of a man police believed to possibly have been a witness to Camilla’s murder was released in the newspapers two weeks after her death, however this man was apparently never found. Police had also told the media that they had found a car they believed had been driven from Camilla’s home to a seafood restaurant called Der Dutchman Seafood Restaurant. The car had been found the same day Camilla’s body had been found, but it was near the intersection of SW 43rd and Johnston. Authorities stated they had searched the car for evidence but didn’t state why they thought it was connected to the murder.
