Ronald and Kailee McMullen.

Kailee Jo McMullen was a bubbly former cheerleader who loved animals and “cherished her family.” She dreamed of becoming a firefighter.

Everything went terribly wrong on the morning of June 29. Authorities are now accusing Kailee’s father, Ronald McMullen, of first-degree murder in connection with her death.

The Norman, Oklahoma 22-year-old EMT perished at home from a gunshot wound to the head, and her father, a search warrant alleged, was partially covered in blood when police arrived.

In some court documents, Kailee’s name is given as Kailee Jo Hooker, which is her mother’s maiden name.

Here’s what you need to know:


1. Ronald McMullen Is Accused of First-Degree Murder in Connection With Kailee’s Death

Police responded at about 5:45 a.m. June 29 to a reported shooting at a home in Norman. “Upon arrival, officers found Kailee suffered an apparent gunshot wound. She was pronounced dead at the scene,” reported The Norman Transcript.

Ronald McMullen called 911 and reported that Kailee shot herself, according to CBS News.

The father was not arrested until July 5. “Ronald was booked into the Cleveland County Detention Center on a complaint of first-degree murder,” the newspaper reported. Authorities have not released any further details.

KFOR-TV reported that Kailee died from a gunshot wound to the head, and Ronald Lee McMullen, Jr. is her biological father. Authorities believe the death is “suspicious,” reported the television station, although the medical examiner has yet to determine the cause of death.

However, a search warrant affidavit obtained by KFOR alleged that, when authorities arrived at the scene, they found Ronald McMullen “covered in blood and (he) even had blood under the tank top he was wearing.”

“When you listen to the 911 call, the father states that she shot herself. The evidence that was collected from the scene and as we’ve worked through the initial investigation, that’s when the death became suspicious. We didn’t feel like the things that we were able to gain from the scene connected the story that was told,” Sarah Jensen, of the Norman Police Department, told News 9.


2. Kailee Was a Former Cheerleading Co-Captain Who Worked at a Plasma Company & Her Father Is Accused of Trying to Wipe Blood Off Himself at the Crime Scene

Kailee Jo’s Facebook page says she worked at CSL Plasma and Petsmart and was a former server at Legends Steakhouse. She attended Norman High School North and lived in Norman, Oklahoma, where she was from.

According to her obituary, Kailee had a natural talent for cheerleading.

“At age eight Kailee joined Oklahoma Twisters All Stars cheerleading and soon discovered that she had a natural talent for the sport. She traveled all over the country, competing at cheer competitions including Cheerleading Worlds in Orlando, Fla.,” the obituary said.

“She started school cheer in eighth grade and cheered through high school. During her senior year she served as a Varsity co-captain, leading her squad to win the 201213 6A state title. Kailee grew up in Norman, graduating from Norman North High School in 2013.”

The search warrant affidavit presents a series of disturbing details about what happened when police arrived at the crime scene.

According to KFOR, it alleges that officers asked Ronald McMullen what happened but he allegedly “gave officers a blank stare and told them that he didn’t know where the gun was.” Officers believed the body and gun had been moved before they arrived, the television station reported.

“Officers had to physically restrain McMullen from wiping blood from his hands,” the affidavit alleged, according to KFOR. “After pictures were taken, Ronald McMullen lay down in the dirt, and began covering himself in dirt while rubbing the shoes he was wearing (also covered in blood) on the concrete entryway,” it said.

According to UK Daily Mail, Kailee’s mother and Ronald’s wife, Karen Hooker McMullen, was giving Kailee CPR when police arrived. “Kailee’s body was in the home’s entryway, and a blood-splattered .357 revolver was found on a side table,” reported UK Daily Mail.

UK Daily Mail reported that court documents allege that Kailie “had been living at home on and off prior to her death, but had a deeply unhappy relationship with her father, friends told police. They told officers that in April McMullen had slapped her until her mother pulled a gun on him to make him stop.”

There were also other allegations of alleged abuse, according the court documents, which were obtained by The Oklahoman.


3. Kailee Attended Bible College & Earned an EMT Certificate

Kailee briefly left Oklahoma after high school to attend Bible college in Baton Rouge, La., her obit says.

Upon returning to Norman, she earned her EMT certificate, according to the obituary. In addition to working for the Plasma company, at the time of her death, she worked as an EMT with Norman Regional EMSSTAT.

A woman who donated money to a GoFundMe site established in Kailee’s name wrote, “Kailee was one of our most outstanding EMT students. She was always willing to help without being asked, was sensitive to the needs of others, and had the brightest smile. We will miss her greatly.”

Kailee was also remembered for loving a menagerie of animals.

“Kailee had a passion for helping people and loved animals. Over the years she owned many pets: Mackey, a tri-color border collie that she loved to take to the dog park; Jack, a pug; Shady, a cat; and many hermit crabs, mice and rats.

Kailee had “a zest for life and a bubbly personality, was quick witted, and had a quirky sense of humor,” the obit recalled.

“She loved music, no matter the kind, and hanging out with her friends. Always the entertainer, she loved making people laugh and was famous for the elaborate costumes she would put together when the occasion arose. Kailee cherished her family and always had time for them. She was strong in her faith and grew up attending Goodrich Memorial United Methodist Church. Kailee was a good and loyal friend, and all who knew her were better for it.”

P.S.: Matthew 10 states:…
.
34) Do not assume that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword. 35) For I have come to turn ‘A man against his father, a daughter against her mother, a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 36) A man’s enemies will be the members of his own household. [Berean Study Bible]
.
As a young Christian woman, Kailee was mindful of God’s spirit, and God’s direction!… and if dad was against the spirit and direction of God, then the “sword” of truth Kailee may have used, may have “cut to the core” of dad’s indifference!… and as a consequence, suffered his wrath!

Your response is disturbing but unfortunately not surprising given the prevalence of bastardized Christianity in this part of the world.

I can’t make sense of this story! And I’m wondering whether dad made a DARK threatening comment to Kailee (using a gun!) over something Kailee had said, and the gun– somehow!– discharged! Had Kailee confronted dad over something she discovered about him? Had dad made a sexually explicit comment and/ or physical pass at Kailee?… and then Kailee let him know of God’s hate for such behavior! And did dad… embarrassed by the revelation, and chastisement!… kill his only child! Otherwise!… the dots do not “connect”!

You are psycho..had you read it all it was alleged that he had molested her for years & a few months before the murder he decided to do it again when he thought she was asleep.

Curse your perverse words!… and the UNHOLY SPIRIT and “God” that sent them! THERE IS N-O-T-H-I-N-G in this story that suggests M-O-L-E-S-T-A-T-I-O-N!… W-H-A-T-S-O-E-V-E-R! And I don’t tend to bounce around from link to link to make sense of a blog!… if the essence of the blog doesn’t convey the essential elements needed to make sense of it, then I’d be better off going on the Net to obtain what I need! THIS STORY!… and not the one linked elsewhere, or the one RUNNING IN YOUR HEAD!… is the ONLY ONE that MY SPIRIT based a conclusion on! But!… and apparently!… MY SPIRIT– in contrast to your FOUL SPIRIT!– was able to glean what was necessary, without having to search elsewhere for any further details!

Kailee told me in high school about a purvy “cousin” come to find out the purvy cousin was her dad. So sad, wish I could have helped her more.

JOHN MAYOR...
