Murder convict charged with mysterious ’21 Turley homicides


By John Dobberstein, Editor

Charges have been filed in a murder mystery in the Turley area that stumped Tulsa County investigators for nearly 2 years.

John Bryan Goode, 40, has been charged with the murders of Jack Grimes, Dewayne Selby and Dewayne's mother, Glenda "Cookie" Parton. All three of victim's were last seen in the Turley area with the suspect in October of 2021.

Grimes' remains were found in wooded area near 2045 E 59th Place Oct. 31, 2021. Selby and Parton's remains were found last month near 56th Street North and Highway 75.

Goode is charged with three counts of first-degree murder. Yesterday he plead no contest in another homicide case that occurred in Tulsa. He was sentenced to 32 years in that case and remains in the Tulsa County Jail.

In May 2022, Tulsa police responded to 6500 E. Admiral PI. for a call about an automobile collision. Officers arrived and determined it was not a collision, but actually a stabbing.

Officers found 64-year-old Richard Bonat with multiple stab wounds. Bonat was taken to the hospital and died shortly after.

Through investigation, TPD detectives gathered enough evidence to determine Goode, who was 39 at the time, was the suspect. Goode and arrested a few days later on a charge of first-degree murder.

During a press conference Wednesday announcing the charges, Tulsa County Sheriff Vic Regalado said investigators are “taking a fresh look” at the stabbing death of James Williams, which occurred in the general area where the Turley victims were found.

Anyone with information about that case is asked to contact the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office.
