PRLog - Feb. 23, 2010 - On June 22, 1978, Melvin Lorenz, his wife, Linda, and son, Richard, were killed near Purcell, Oklahoma. Exactly 24 days later, on July 16, six employees of a Sirloin Stockade Restaurant in southwest Oklahoma City were forced into a freezer and then shot to death.
Sirloin Stockade Slaughter
These two seemingly unrelated murder cases turned out to be committed by the same man. It was through the dedicated efforts of law enforcement officers working nonstop for eight months that cracked the cases.
Hundreds of law enforcement members worked to track down the killers. In the fall of 1979, Roger Dale Stafford was convicted of first degree murder in the deaths of nine people. He was executed in 1995.

About the Author: Emma Jean Stover has wanted to tell this story ever since she first heard her nephew speak about the murders in the late 1970s. “His description of the events and the search for the killers intrigued me, and I kept thinking about writing a book to let others know about the struggles to find and convict the killers.” A retired teacher, Stover lives in Oklahoma City.
