OSBI Helps Investigate Homicide in Cotton County

Funeral services have been set for a Cotton County woman found dead in her home on Tuesday.

The service for 41-year-old Shannen Brown will be at 2:00p.m. on Saturday at the Owens and Brumley Funeral Home in Burkburnett.

Meanwhile, a teenager has been arrested and charged with first degree murder and first degree arson in connection to her body being found after a house fire in Temple, Oklahoma. 

According to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI), on Tuesday just after midnight, the Cotton County Sheriff’s Office requested OSBI assistance with a suspicious death.  The teenage boy living inside the home had called 911 to report that the house on Country Road was on fire.

When Temple firefighters arrived on scene, they were able to pull Brown out from inside the home.  However, she was already dead.

Officials said that the trauma to her body indicated that she did not die from the fire or smoke, but from a homicidal act.  After interviewing the teenager who reported the fire, agents arrested him.

OSBI agents are working with officials from the State Fire Marshal’s Office and deputies with the Cotton County Sheriff’s Officer.
