4 Found Dead in Oklahoma Marijuana Growing Operation, Suspect Arrested in Miami

Miami-Dade Corrections

A man has been reportedly arrested on Tuesday in connection with the “executions” of four Chinese nationals at a marijuana growing enterprise in Oklahoma, according to officials. According to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, one individual was also hurt in the Sunday event. Wu Chen, 45, was apprehended in Miami Beach, Florida, on Tuesday, police said.

Chen will be charged with “Murder and Shooting with Intent to Kill,” the OSBI said in a statement. He is being held in Oklahoma pending extradition.” It was unclear whether the suspect was represented by an attorney. According to the statement, Chen was arrested in Miami when his vehicle was identified by a car tag reader, which linked it to an outstanding warrant in Oklahoma.

The inquiry began on Sunday when deputies from Kingfisher County were summoned to a reported hostage situation and discovered three men and one woman dead and one person injured, according to the OSBI, who added that they felt the incident was not random. The injured person, who was also a Chinese national, was taken to an Oklahoma City hospital for treatment, but Florence did not know their current condition.

Investigators are attempting to piece together what transpired, according to OSBI Capt. Stan Florence, but believe that the victims and the suspect knew each other. Florence said that they did not know if they were related, or coworkers, but they believe these folks were familiar with each other.

According to Florence, the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics was also on the site to examine the expanding enterprise. It was unclear whether the operation was lawful and licensed. Oklahoma has legalized medical marijuana.

Kingfisher County is located to the northwest of Oklahoma City. Despite the fact that medical marijuana is allowed in Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics was called in to examine the operation. Law enforcement is looking into this case as a quadruple homicide.
