The 2001 death of Tracy Allen in Altus, Oklahoma is investigated. Tracy had recently gotten out of a volatile marriage with Garland Allen, but the two remained in close contact after their divorce.
One evening in May 2001, Tracy had her neighbor baby-sit for their two young daughters. Later that night, Garland arrived at the neighbor’s to say Tracy was at his house, and she had asked him to pick up their daughters. He then dropped the girls off at his mother’s house, telling her that Tracy had run away with another man and had left him with the girls.
A few days later, Garland surrendered custody of his girls to his mother and then left town. He confessed to beating her to death and led investigators to her body.
Allen pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in a Jackson County Courtroom and was sentenced to 40 years in prison.
