Bobby Jamison, his wife, Sherilyn, and daughter, Madyson, went missing in October 2009, roughly six months after the petition was filed in McIntosh County. The remains of three human beings, described as a child and two adults, were found Nov. 16 in northeast Latimer County.

The Oklahoman reports that Bobby Jamison claimed in the petition that his own father, Bob Dead Jamison, threatened "to kill" him and his family on at least two occasions, in November 2008 and in late April 2009.

Bob Dean Jamison died in December 2009, two months after the Jamison family went missing near Kinta.
