Police told Sapulpa Times that the man, identified as 59-year-old Steven Honeywell, was found by a family member just before 7:00 pm after going missing for a portion of the day.

According to the statement by police, Honeywell had recently been under the care of a nearby VA hospital, which led them to discover what they say is an “extensive medical history,” which they believe may have played a role in Honeywell’s death, although confirmation has not yet been made by the medical examiner.
