(PUSHMATAHA COUNTY, Okla.) Agents with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) together with Pushmataha County Sheriff B.J. Hedgecock, arrested Teamon Haskell Erwin Wednesday for the murder of 35-year-old Richard Medlock on November 13, 2018. Pushmataha County Sheriff B.J. Hedgecock requested OSBI investigative assistance after being called to East 1620 Road in Albion, Okla., by another resident of the home. Medlock had been shot multiple times and the Medical Examiner ruled the death a homicide. Evidence collected at the scene include five spent 9mm casings. In August of 2019, a 9mm pistol was recovered and transferred to the OSBI Laboratory for analysis. A Firearms and Toolmarks Examiner at the lab compared the pistol to the spent shell casings found at the crime scene. The examiner determined the casings were fired from the recovered pistol, which had been seen in Erwin’s possession by numerous witnesses. Erwin is in the Pushmataha County Jail facing a charge of Murder in the First Degree.
