Tulsa County Sheriff's Office Communications Director Casey Roebuck told the Bartlesville Examiner-Enterprise, "We went out and found physical evidence in the home that led us to believe the couple had possibly met with foul play."
According to KJRH-TV, Roebuck said, "Sounds like the family members were estranged and that perhaps the Chambers weren’t happy when the cousin showed up at their house on Saturday. Some sort of altercation ensued.'
