Oklahoma man Kevin Sweat accused of killing Taylor Paschal-Placker and Skyla Whitaker

A 25-year-old man from Oklahoma has been accused of shooting dead two young girls back in 2008. Kevin Sweat allegedly shot Taylor Paschal-Placker, 13, and Skyla Whitaker, 11, as they walked along a road near the Paschal-Placker’s home in 2008.

The girls were shot multiple times on County Line Road in Weleetka. The precise circumstances surrounding their deaths are not clear, but a gun linked to the killings – .40-caliber model 22 – was reportedly put up for sale at a gun fair earlier this year.

Kevin Sweat is reportedly also accused of killing his girlfriend Ashley Taylor, who vanished earlier this year after allegedly going to Louisiana to get married to her boyfriend. Taylor’s body was found earlier this year.
