WYNNEWOOD, Okla. (KTEN) — Some Wynnewood residents hoping to see major changes in city government voiced their concerns to City Council members at a meeting on Monday.

Save Wynnewood — a group of concerned citizens — asked Council members to remove a police officer after he responded to a call at a local store where employees discovered medical waste relating to a possible miscarriage.

Because there were no reports filed or evidence taken from the scene, the police chief said they can't prove whether or not the remains were from a human birth.

"Officer Brandon Cross responded, and he didn't look at the remains or do an investigation," said Shannon Kile. "Ultimately, he instructed them to throw it away, and they were horrified and they tried to say, 'You know, we think it's a baby.'"

According to a statement from the City of Wynnewood, the responding officer did not find that a crime had taken place and concluded his investigation.

Police Chief Ken Moore concedes that the case was not handled properly.

"My officer did not do everything he should've done," Moore said. "He didn't take the investigation far enough, and because of that, we have no physical evidence to prove anything one way or the other."

City officials placed Cross on paid administrative leave during an internal investigation. According to the City of Wynnewood after review by the District Attorney's office, the city has since reinstated him to active duty.

Last November, the state auditor approved a citizens' petition for a special audit of the City of Wynnewood.

"We have just filed suit in Garvin County District Court, and our lawyers are working on it right now," Kile said. "We're going to file an injunction to remove [Anne Giltner] from the mayor's office. She's illegally serving, and has been now for five weeks."
