An Oklahoma Woman's Roommates Claim She Met Someone at a Music Festival and Vanished--No One Has Seen Kristyn Richerson in More than Three Years
Kristyn Richerson was the type of person who would go out of her way to help others. Her friends believe that her charity might have led to her death, and potentially at the hands of those close to her.
The day of her disappearance
Kristyn went missing on May 25th, 2018, the day she was to leave for Rocklahoma, an annual multi-day music festival in Pryor, Oklahoma.
Krystin was a lover of music, and an avid drummer, with the nickname Krash. Her favorite band, Halestorm, was playing in Rocklahoma that year so she was excited to attend to see them live. She had notified a longtime family friend that she was stopping by to pick up a sleeping bag and tent—but they never heard from her again. Family and friends say that Kristyn would not just disappear. She had a dog named Buddy and she would never leave him or her home, friends, or family.
Carl Bryce, Kristyn’s roommate claims that he and Kristyn went to Rocklahoma and she left with an unknown female. However, cell tower data indicates that Kristyn’s cell phone never left the area near her home; and no one reported seeing her at the festival outside of her roommate. Carl Bryce and Cody Ray Campbell, Kristyn’s other roommate, were briefly held as material witnesses in her case. Bryce had used Kristyn’s Oklahoma Access Card after her disappearance, Campbell allegedly told people he was involved in the death of Kristyn, and both men had sold and given away her property before she was actually reported missing. Campbell has been sentenced for theft charges and Bryce is facing charges in connection with a stolen truck discovered at the residence.
Where the case stands today
Several years later, there is still no trace of Kristyn, and her case is still an active investigation by the Muskogee Police Department.
