The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation and the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office are seeking information as part of a 1983 cold case investigation and are looking to talk with anyone who worked at the Seminole Dairy Queen back in 1983 or 1984.

OSBI and sheriff's deputies continue to investigate the disappearance of Melody (Garton) Jones and the murder of her husband, Paul Jones, 20. No arrests have ever been made in this case and Melody has never been found.

Melody was 19 years old when she disappeared back in 1983; her husband was found dead in the couple’s Earlsboro area home.

The OSBI on Thursday reached out on social media, hoping for some new tips in the case.

“If you or anyone you know worked at the Dairy Queen located at 522 North Milt Phillips in Seminole, Oklahoma in 1983 or 1984, please call the OSBI tipline at 1-800-522-8017 or the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office at 405-275-2526, ext. 111,” the post reads.

The investigation into this mysterious case has been ongoing for more than three decades.

Most recently in 2017, sheriff’s investigators, using their hands, tools and even a backhoe, searched a 10-acre property in Earlsboro after new information surfaced in the case, but that search produced no new leads and didn't answer any questions.

At that time, Undersheriff Travis Palmer said he believes the case is solvable.

According to news archives, on May 4, 1983, Melody spent the day fishing with her family. Her 18-year-old brother gave her a ride home and dropped her off at the rural Earlsboro home she shared with her husband. He reportedly saw the door ajar with lights on inside.

On the morning of May 5, 1983, Melody didn’t show up for work at the Dairy Queen in Seminole. Her mother, now deceased, went to Melody’s home and discovered her son-in-law’s body. Melody wasn’t there, but all of her personal belongings, including her purse and eyeglasses, were found inside. The couple’s car was parked in the driveway.

Their home, which has long since burned down following a grass fire, was in an area about one-half mile west of SH 9A on Benson Park Road.

Back in 1983, Paul Abel was the sheriff of Pottawatomie County. His office, along with the OSBI, probed the case as a murder and kidnapping, news archives show. Deputies searched the area around the home on foot and horseback, covering about 160 acres, while a search by helicopter covered a 6-square-mile area. They found no sign of Melody or any clues in the case.

Anyone with information in the case or anyone who worked at the Dairy Queen in Seminole back in 1983-84 is asked to contact the OSBI tipline at 1-800-522-8017 or the Pottawatomie County Sheriff's Office at 405-275-2526, ext. 111.
