    Ashley Okland Shooting

    The article yesterday about the 52 year-old woman who was murdered last month in Des Moines got me thinking again about the Ashley Okland case (realtor who was shot and killed in West Des Moines last month).

    I haven't seen or read a thing about it in over two weeks. Has anyone else?

    I realize the first 24-48 hours of a murder investigation are the most crucial, but here we are more than a month later and...nothing (at least that we know of).

    The manner in which she was killed (one shot to the head, one to the chest) and the fact things have been eerily quiet leads me to wonder if it was a professional hit. Not saying they had anything to do with it, but she was dating a Grubb and worked for the Knapps. Both families have A LOT of money. Perhaps she was involved with someone or something she shouldn't have been involved with? Or she knew or saw something she shouldn't have known or seen? Follow the money.

    Or was it some random person, a drifter, with zero ties to her who walked in, shot her, and left? That would make it tough to solve as well.

    Whatever the case, I just find it odd that two women were murdered within days of each other, and there doesn't appear to be any solid leads or suspects (again, at least that we know of).

    Rumors around West Des Moines are that the police have received several credible tips that revolve around the same person. Don't know who that is, if it's personal or professional-related, but they have a person of interest.

    Re: Ashley Okland Shooting

    It has been a week or so but last I heard, the police had a search warrant out for someone. They were keeping it quiet and that is the latest I have heard, no idea if anyone has been arrested or what is going on. I'll ask my relative later in the day what has been heard.

    There were reports that neighbors had seen her in the street previously multiple times previously talking to a guy in a black SUV and they had a somewhat decent description of the guy (haircut, tattoos, age range, etc). There was a car parked a block or 2 away that someone reportedly saw someone get in to the day that this happened so the search warrant may have been for either of the 2, or maybe they were the same person, no idea.

    Part of the confusion with this case is that Ashley was there covering for another agent, who is similar height/weight, hair color, etc so they were unsure last I knew if it was truly Ashley who they were there for or if she was mistaken for the agent who was supposed to be there

    By writing that, yes, you are saying they had anything to do with it. Hope you and CF have good lawyers. If I were a Grubb or a Knapp, you'd be sued before noon.

    You may want to go to law school that way you can figure out on your own that your statement above is hilarious!

    Obviously he's on the phone with the Grubbs and Knapps right now telling them to mobilize their lawyers. This is serious stuff!

    Hard to get sued over a statement of fact.
