(Newser) – Police in rural Oklahoma have no suspects in Sunday's slaying of two girls aged 11 and 13, ABC News reports. The best friends were found with multiple gunshot wounds in a ditch by a country road. They had gone for a stroll after a sleepover at one girl's house. Police think a local person was behind the killings but are stuck for a motive.

"The reason we're looking at a local person is because of the location," the county sheriff explained. "It's unlikely someone just pulled off there," he said of the dirt road by a highway overpass where the bodies were found.
