Did two Tulsa cops kill their daughter’s boyfriend? It certainly looks that way. Jeremey Lake was found shot to death on the street in front of his home, and his girlfriend Lisa Kepler is accusing her parents of the horrific crime. The 18-year-old says that her mother and father — who are both police officers — stalked her and her boyfriend, then her father shot and killed Lake.
Shannon Kepler and his wife Gina were arrested on Tuesday after turning themselves in. They are both 24-year veterans of the Tulsa Police Department.
Lisa Kepler’s story is that she met Lake recently at a homeless shelter after her parents kicked her out of the house. He offered her a place to stay with him at the home that he shared with relatives. Lisa says that on Tuesday night she and Lake were walking home when a black SUV rolled up. Her dad started shouting at her and got out of the vehicle.
Not only did her father allegedly kill her boyfriend, he also fired shots at her as she ran to hide in the bushes. Lisa’s dad — 54-year-old Shannon Kepler — was arrested for first-degree murder and shooting with intent to kill. Her mother, Gina Kepler who was in the SUV at the time of the incident, is accused of being an accessory to the crime.
Even though the Keplers turned themselves in, they aren’t exactly cooperating with the police. Gina Kepler had told authorities she would leave the gun in the trunk of her car, but so far the police haven’t been able to find the car or the weapon — and the Keplers aren’t telling where it is.
