Jamison Family disappearance

The state Medical Examiner’s Office has identified three bodies found by hunters in Latimer County in late 2013 as two adults and a 6-year-old girl who had been missing since 2009, but the cause of their deaths has not yet been determined.
A news release from the agency states the cause of death for Sherilyn Jamison, 40; Bobby Jamison, 44; and Madyson Jamison of Eufaula as unknown due to incomplete skeletal remains.

The couple was looking to purchase a 40-acre plot near the Sans Bois Mountains in southeastern Oklahoma when they disappeared with their daughter in October 2009.
Witness sighted the Jamisons in the area on Oct. 8. Nine days later the family’s abandoned pickup was found southwest of Kinta, a few miles from where the bodies were found four years later.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said after the discovery on Nov. 16 that they recovered no evidence indicating the bodies were the missing family despite an exhaustive search by local, state and federal authorities.
There were no signs of foul play, and it appeared the family had planned to return to the truck, agents said at the time based on personal belongings and a family pet found inside the pickup.
Sherilyn Jamison’s mother previously told The Oklahoman that her daughter was on a hit list maintained by a religious cult.

The newspaper also reported that the Jamisons filed a protective order petition six months before their disappearance against Bobby Jamison’s father, Bob, who had allegedly threatened to kill them twice within six months. The case was dismissed and Bob Jamison died in December 2009.

The Jamison family from Eufaula, Oklahoma,[1] consisting of father Bobby Dale Jamison,[2] mother Sherilynn Leighann Jamison,[3] and daughter Madyson Stormy Star Jamison,[4] mysteriously disappeared on October 8, 2009.[1] The family was reportedly looking to purchase a forty acre plot of land near Red Oak, Oklahoma, about thirty miles from Eufaula, at the time of their disappearance.[5] Their suspected remains were found on November 15–16, 2013, and were positively identified by the Oklahoma medical examiner on July 3, 2014. No cause of death was determined, and the circumstances surrounding their disappearance remain unanswered.[6]

Bobby and Sherilyn Jamison and their young daughter Madyson had been looking to purchase a 40-acre plot of land near the Sans Bois Mountains in southeastern Oklahoma when they suddenly went missing in 2009.
Hundreds of volunteers and law enforcement officers scoured the area looking for clues that could explain the disappearance. But after locating the family pickup and a few possessions, leads on the case went cold and the search for the family was called off.
Now, four years after the disappearance, authorities believe they may have found the remains of the two adults and one child.
Deer hunters discovered the remains Saturday evening near Kinta, in a rugged, mountainous region. The family disappeared in October 2009 while looking for a plot of land that was for sale in the Sans Bois Mountains in northern Latimer County. The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said the remains were located about 2.7 miles northwest of where the family’s pickup was found a little more than a week after they were last seen.
“It brings a closure,” said Jack Jamison, Bobby Jamison’s uncle. “Not knowing — especially the little girl — she did nothing to cause something like that. It brings closure. That’s about all I can say. It’s sad. It’s about what we expected.”
While it’s not yet definitive that the remains are his nephew and his family, all evidence points to it being them, said Jack Jamison, who was contacted by the FBI about the discovery. He said he had no hope the family was still alive four years later and he believed that foul play had to be involved.
The Latimer County Sheriff’s Office, Haskell County Sheriff’s Office, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, FBI and the State Medical Examiner’s Office searched the area, but turned up no evidence that helped identify the remains, according to a statement from the OSBI.
“Law enforcement authorities do not have any information to indicate these human remains are that of the Jamison family; however, since the remains were found approximately 2.7 aerial miles northwest of where Bobby Jamison’s pickup was found in 2009, authorities are looking into the possibility of the remains belonging to the Jamison family,” the OSBI said in a statement.
A spokeswoman for the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner said Monday that the office has received skeletal remains of two adults and one child. The office will use anthropological and, if necessary, forensic pathological methods to determine if the remains belong to Bobby Jamison, who was 44 when he went missing, and his wife, Sherilyn Jamison, who was 40 at the time of the disappearance, and their 6-year-old daughter, Madyson.
“Depending on the features of these remains and their state of preservation, identification can take anywhere from days to years,” spokeswoman Amy Elliott said in a statement.
Latimer County Sheriff Jesse James did not return a message seeking comment on the case.
Then-Latimer County Sheriff Israel Beauchamp told The Associated Press in 2009 that a landowner in the Red Oak area last saw the family on Oct. 8. A little more than a week later, on Oct. 17, an air and ground search involving more than 300 volunteers and dozens of law enforcement officers was launched after hunters discovered the family’s pickup truck at a remote well pad site near a 40-acre plot of land the family was considering buying. A wallet, purse, cellphones, cash and Madyson’s small dog were found inside the truck.
There were no signs of foul play and it appeared the family had planned to return to the truck.
Heavy rains hit the area during the time family went missing, but Beauchamp said he didn’t think the creek would be strong enough to sweep away the adults. The sheriff said both Bobby and Sherilyn Jamison were disabled and did not work. The family was originally from the Oklahoma City area but had moved to Eufaula and often traveled to time-share units around the country.

The initial investigation into the Jamison family’s disappearance indicated that they likely had not vanished on their own accord. Their dog was found in the truck malnourished after days of going without food or water. Police also discovered their IDs, wallets, mobile phones, a GPS system, and about $32,000 in cash.[5] The Jamisons were known for carrying large amounts of cash with them.[1]

Several theories have emerged about the family’s disappearance, such as that they faked their own deaths, were in a witness protection program, were killed, or committed group suicide.[7] Shortly before the disappearance, Bobby Jamison was involved in a bitter lawsuit with his father. Bobby reported that his father, Bobby Dean Jamison, had threatened him and his family, but police do not believe that Bobby’s father was involved in the family’s disappearance.[7]

Another popular theory was that the Jamisons were involved in drugs and drug dealing. Investigators cited the large amount of cash found in the Jamisons’ truck, and the apparent strange behavior exhibited by Bobby and Sherilynn Jamison shortly before they went missing.[8] Bobby and Sherilynn had reportedly told their pastor on separate occasions that they had seen spirits inside of their home.[8] Sherilyn’s mother, Connie Kokotan, has believed that the family were killed by members of a violent cult. She has also firmly denied that the Jamisons were involved in drugs or witchcraft.[9]

In the Media[edit]
The Jamison family disappearance was profiled on the Investigation Discovery series Disappeared in late 2010, in an episode entitled “Paradise Lost.”[10]

The skeletal remains of two adults and one child were found on November 15–16, 2013, more than four years after the family went missing. The remains were discovered less than three miles away from where the family’s pickup truck had been abandoned. While the remains were presumed by many to be those of the missing family, the Oklahoma medical examiner’s office needed to use anthropological and forensic pathological testing to identify the remains.[6]

Officials confirmed on July 3, 2014 that the remains belonged to the missing Jamison family.[6] A cause of death was not determined.

    This event has been solved. But unless you sat in the psychology class that explains Subliminal Distraction it sounds like science fiction. __ Fifty years ago engineers discovered a problem of our physiology of sight when it caused believed-harmless episodes of psychotic-like confusion for office workers. The cubicle was designed to block peripheral vision to stop it by 1968.

    Video from an episode of “Disappeared” shows the couple placed two computer workstations side by side in their bedroom. That created the “mental break causing design mistake” engineers found. __ Supervision in an office sends someone home or to a hospital when bizarre behavior begins. But no one took notice when the Jamisons began to see spirits.

    There are many other such cases. Most are college students. Anyone with full normal sight who can suppress the vision startle reflex can have Subliminal Distraction.

    Other examples on my site are: Mary Shotwell Little, Atlanta, Ron Tammen, Miami of Ohio, Joe Morse, Georgia Tech suicide, Pekka-Eric Auvinen, mass shooter suicide, Jokela, Finland.

    There is no down side to learning what visual subliminal distraction is and taking simple free precautions to avoid it.

    I am familiar with that remote area. Nowhere can I find the actual legitimate for sale advertisement or owner of the 40 acres that were for sale. Does anyone have that information that has been verified as legitimate.
