Investigators searching for Susan Freehauf, an Oklahoma City resident who disappeared on Sept. 24, discovered several personal items belonging to her when they searched a unit at American Self Storage on Meridian Avenue. Court documents indicate police also uncovered multiple “blunt and edge” weapons, including clubs, hatchets and knives, inside the space, along with blood, hair, fingernails and several items that could have been used to clean a crime scene, according to the source.
Freehauf was reported missing by co-workers more than two weeks ago when she failed to show up to her job for two days. When police searched her apartment, they found several large blood stains in the living room. Investigators subsequently arrested Freehauf’s boyfriend, David Shores, in connection to her disappearance and possible murder, the source reported.
It’s not clear what initially led police to the self-storage facility. The report also didn’t indicate whether Freehauf or Shores was listed as the unit’s tenant.
Police believe Freehauf was likely murdered, though her body is still missing.
