DNA taken from two unknown people found dead in southeastern Oklahoma more than 20 years ago did not match a missing Texas couple as hoped.
Pittsburg County Sheriff Chris Morris told the McAlester News-Capital the DNA does not match relatives of a Dangerfield, Texas, couple who disappeared around the same time the bodies known as John Doe and Jane Doe were found in 1995.
Authorities have said the bodies of the man and a woman were found with gunshot wounds and investigators believed they were killed and dumped by travelers on nearby U.S. 69.
The latest news from around North Texas.
The bodies were exhumed in May from a cemetery north of McAlester, about 100 miles southeast of Oklahoma City.
Morris said the DNA will be entered into a national missing persons database.
