First-Ever Pig Dig Turns Out Successful


Southwestern Oklahoma State University’s Criminal Justice Student Association recently hosted its first-ever Pig Dig murder mystery competition at Crowder Lake University Park south of Weatherford.

Kandi Schaefferkoetter, vice president of the association, said the turnout was great.

The murder mystery was conducted as a glamorized crime scene investigation. There were four crime scenes to be searched and two additional vehicles that could be searched only after obtaining a search warrant. There were 10 witnesses and suspects to be interrogated and also a district attorney who issued the search warrants with probable cause. A sheriff was there to issue a statement to each C.S.I. as they began their search for the killer. After a hard day's work in the sun and after many interrogations, a pork dinner was served and various prizes were drawn.

The C.J.S.A. would like to thank the following sponsors that made the event possible: Washita County Sheriff's Department; Wal-Mart; Homeland; IBC Bank; Heapin Helpins; SWOSU Student Government Association;  Nanny's Corner; Dough-Belly's; SWOSU Student Allocations Committee; and BG's.
