Investigators Looking Into Death Of Oklahoma Boy

CYRIL, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has been asked to look into the death of an 8-year-old boy who was found in the trunk of his parents' car in Cyril.

OSBI officials said Thursday the parents of Preston Mayhan began looking for him when he didn't return home about 9 p.m. Wednesday. The parents notified Cyril police a few hours later.

Investigators say Preston's parents drove to areas that he liked to frequent Thursday morning, including a nearby mobile home park. When they arrived at the park, the father opened the trunk of his
car and found Preston inside.

OSBI officials say the state Medical Examiner's office will perform an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of Preston's death.
