The Bryan County homicide victim whose body was found Monday afternoon near a creek three miles east of Durant has been positively identified, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said.

Steven Lee Sessums, 32, was killed sometime Saturday morning and his was dumped at Canella Creek on Old Highway 70 where a passerby later saw it.

OSBI agents arrested Raymond Stewart Tuesday afternoon on a complaint of first degree murder. The medical examiner has determined Sessums died from blunt force trauma to his head and neck.
