Twenty-six year old Shawna Louise Jones was found dead on Bald Knob Mountain in Henryetta on January 1, 1994. She was in a shallow pard of a pond and given that the autopsy reported Shawna had to have been laying face down at death, and was legally intoxicated at the time of death- her murder was initially ruled an accidental death.

However, when her body was found, her body had been turned over and two footprints were found near her head. She also had a human bitemark on her forearm, and appeared to actually die of strangulation as her hyoid bone was fractured. As of 2022 Shawna’s death is now viewed as a homicide.
