The indictment is one of the most detailed public accounts of how UAB works. It says that the gang sells about 2,500 kilos of meth every year in Oklahoma and lists crimes like murder, kidnapping, intimidating witnesses, and breaking into homes. As part of a plea deal, one member said that he and others kidnapped people they thought were informants and tried to scare and intimidate them with tarps, shovels, blow torches, and other things.
According to court documents and news stories, the UAB is still going strong and is still linked to gruesome murders and big drug cases. In August, nine people with ties to the UAB were accused of killing a member of a rival gang. Prosecutors say the man was lured out of his motel room, tortured, and then dumped in a ditch.
Most of the people who have been reported missing in the Logan County case are men who have been arrested for drugs many times and spent time in prison. One person who hasn’t been seen since January 11 is 21-year-old Audrey Slack, who just got married.
That morning, Slack called her family from a motel outside of Oklahoma City. She was on a road trip with her husband, Stephen Walker, who is more than twice her age and has tattoos that show he is a member of another white supremacist prison gang.
Slack said that the couple would be home by 8 o’clock, but they never showed up. A search warrant filed on August 2 says that their black pickup truck was found with a bullet hole, blood, and bleach on the inside.
Relatives of Slack, who asked that their names and other identifying information not be made public, said that investigators had called them out of the blue in April to ask for dental records. Even though the family had already given DNA samples, they said they wouldn’t do it again unless the detective told them what was going on. The family then found out that several human remains had been found about 15 minutes from where the missing couple had been seen last.
Since that day, they have been in the same painful limbo as the other families, waiting for identifications that could take many more months.
“I need to know,” said a family member of Slack. “I need to put my mind at ease.”
