Autopsy reveals drugs in two of three teens killed in Wagoner County home invasion

Two of the three teen burglars shot and killed during a Wagoner County home invasion March 27 showed positive results for drugs, according to autopsy reports from the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Blood tests revealed Maxwell Cook, 18, to have amphetamine and methamphetamine in his system at the time he was killed. Jaykob Woodruff, 15, tested positive for trace amounts of amphetamine.

Cook was shot multiple times, one of which hit a major artery. The report says a bottle of “Crown Royal” was submitted with Cook’s body, however toxicology reports show a negative result for alcohol in his system at the time of his death.

18-year-old Jacob Redfearn, also shot multiple times, was found to have a knife in his possession, according to the autopsy report.

Toxicology tests found no drugs or alcohol in Redfearn’s system.

A fourth participant in the deadly burglary attempt, 21-year-old Elizabeth Rodriguez, admitted to police that she had driven the three teens to the residence and helped plan the burglary.

Wagoner County Assistant District Attorney Jack Thorpe said a few days after the shooting that Rodriguez would be charged with three counts of first-degree murder and two counts of burglary for her part in the crime.

The district attorney’s office deemed the shooting justifiable. Thorpe said Zach Peters was acting in self-defense when he pulled the trigger, killing the three intruders.
