The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says 51-year-old Sheryl Lynne Clark is wanted in connection with the looting of her daughter’s trust fund.
OSBI spokeswoman, Jessica Brown said in December Garvin County Sheriff Larry Rhodes asked the state agency to investigate the Davis woman for making fraudulent withdrawals from a trust account at Pauls Valley National Bank. The fund was set up for Clark’s daughter based on money received from a Workers’ Compensation Court award due to the death of her father.
Clark’s daughter was to have access to the account when she turned 18. However, when she went to the bank to withdraw the funds, she discovered the account had been drained.
The OSBI investigation revealed Clark had made two withdrawals from the trust for her daughter’s care, which had been authorized by a Worker’s Compensation Court judge. But six additional unauthorized withdrawals had depleted the fund.
Agents conducting the inquiry traced forged court orders and withdrawals to the victim’s mother. Court records show an arrest warrant charging her with six counts of first-degree forgery and one count of embezzlement has been issued. A $10,000 bond is attached to the warrant.
So far Clark has managed to avoid arrest. The OSBI is asking the publics’ assistance in locating the fugitive mom.
Brown said late Wednesday afternoon Clark is described as a Caucasian, 5-feet 6-inches tall, 175 pounds with brown eyes and black hair.
Anyone with information concerning her whereabouts is urged to call the OSBI hotline at(800) 522-8017.
