Last week, on the 33rd anniversary of the murder of Mary Pewitt, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) announced a $10,000 reward for information on a cold case out of Comanche and a potential suspect.

According to the OSBI, June 4, 2021, made 33 years since the death of Pewitt. The $10,000 reward is for information that leads to a suspect in the case.

Hewitt was found murdered in her Comanche, Oklahoma home on June 4, 1988, at the age of 25. According to the original investigators and OSBI, “Pewitt had worked until midnight at Harold’s Club and after she closed the bar, she delivered the day’s receipts to the owner.”

Reports show she was last seen alive at her home just before 1 a.m.

According to OSBI, local authorities worked the case until the Comanche Police Department requested assistance from OSBI in February 1997. Since then, OSBI has worked the case, “following every lead in the case in the pursuit of justice for Mary and her family.”

To try and generate new leads, OSBI featured Pewitt in deck two of the OSBI cold case playing cards. Deck two was distributed to the Department of Corrections in January 2019 and decks are available to inmates for purchase through the canteen.

Ricky Adams, director for the OSBI, said the goal is “to seek the truth for people like Mary who can no longer speak for themselves.”

“Someone out there violently took Mary from her children, her family and her circle of friends,” Adams said. “I am optimistic offering a $10,000 reward will inspire someone to come forward with the information we need to solve Mary’s case.”
