Multiple agencies investigate missing woman case
By Abigail Hall - Jul 21, 2018

"Muskogee police and members of other state agencies spent Friday investigating a missing person case.

Kristyn Richerson, 51, was reported missing between July 6-8, although she has been missing since May 25, according to the report.

Muskogee police officers arrived at her home in the 1300 block of Houston Street at 10:30 a.m. Friday.

When police searched Richerson’s home, they found Carl Hudson, Richerson’s neighbor, in the home, said Cassie McGovern, a friend of Richerson’s, who was also present in the home when police arrived. 

McGovern said there was a stand-off between Hudson and the police before he was escorted to a patrol car and driven away. 

At 3 p.m., police, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation agents and the State medical examiner were on site. Police cars blockaded the area at Locust and Houston streets and Houston, North N and Summit streets. 

Friends and neighbors gathered on front lawns and in cars nearby watching and waiting for news. 

The medical examiner was in the backyard of Richerson’s home – digging a hole, sifting through evidence with rakes and placing evidence tags. 

Several Muskogee police officers raked through a large section of brush on Richerson’s front yard – fallen tree limbs and overgrown property. 

McGovern and her cousin, Cody Campbell, approached the police at 4:30 p.m. Campbell was patted down, voluntarily entered a patrol car and was driven away.

“He just wanted to talk to them,” McGovern said about Campbell. 

Shortly before 6 p.m., all officers and investigators packed up for the evening. 

Muskogee County District Attorney Orvil Loge said the investigation is open, and officers will return to the scene Saturday morning. He said he could not release any other information."

MUSKOGEE, Okla. (KTUL) — Her name is Kristyn Richerson, but her friends called her by a different name.

"We called her Krash. She was an avid drummer," said her best friend Adele Burnett. "We grew up together. Our moms were best friends."

A lover of music, Kristyn was all packed up in May and headed to Rocklahoma to see her favorite band.

"And the last thing anyone heard is that she was going to stop by and pick up her sleeping bag and tent," Adele said. "No one has heard from her since."

Days of waiting for answers have turned into months.

Now just talking about Kristyn is difficult, but Adele knows her and is positive she'd never do anything like this.

"[Kristyn] had a dog named Buddy," Adele said. "She would never leave her dog. She wouldn't leave her home, her friends, her family. She loved life."

Friends and family have fought to keep Kristyn's name out there.

"We've passed out pins, we've passed out fliers, we've made signs," Adele said.

Until she's found, they say they won't stop looking.

"Somebody knows where she's at, there are people who know where she's at and we just want her back," Adele said. "We just want to bring her home."

Gofundme account has been set up to raise reward money for answers in Kristyn's case.
