Anadarko church where Oklahoma City pastor was killed is torn down

| July 12, 2010

ANADARKO – Demolition crews tore down the church where a pastor was murdered last year. The body of Carol Daniels, 61, was discovered inside Christ Holy Sanctified Church last August. Church leaders decided to demolish the old church to make way for a memorial in honor of Pastor Daniels.

"If you want your name to be remembered for the things that you do, you have to leave it in the hearts of people and she left us a lot of good memories," said Pastor Ezra Randle, Christ Holy Sanctified Church of America.

Pastor Randle says the church was just recently turned back over to them by investigators. Since the murder, the church remained closed. Pastor Randle believes what happened there caused a lot of pain and that the best thing to do was to turn the site into a memorial.

"If you just forget about it and walk away kicking the dirt, saying oh well she was a good woman, I don't think that would be fair," said Pastor Randle.

Pastor Daniels lived in Oklahoma City and drove nearly every Sunday to Anadarko to lead church services. Pastor Randle says she did this for nine years.

Church leaders are collecting donations to help pay for the memorial in honor of Pastor Daniels. If you would like to help, you can contact Pastor Ezra Randle at (580)225-6361 or send money to Christ Holy Sanctified Church Box 133 Elk City, OK 73644.
