Lawrence Paul Anderson Bio/Wiki
As part of a mass commutation campaign, an Oklahoma man named ‘Lawrence Paul Anderson’ who was released early from jail in January is now accused of three murders, including the death of a neighbor whose heart he cut out, authorities said.
According to Grady County Jail records, Lawrence Paul Anderson, of Chickasha, is charged with three counts of first-degree murder and a single count each of assault with a deadly weapon and felony maiming. Without parole, he is being detained.
He was 42 years old.

At his first court appearance, which took place via video, Anderson wept Tuesday. He said, “I don’t want no bail, your honor. I don’t want no bail,”
He wiped away tears with a heavily bandaged right hand, the Oklahoman reported.
He muttered, “Oh, God.” “Oh, God.”
Anderson was accused earlier this month of stabbing Andrea Lynn Blankenship, 41, Leon Pye, 67, and Kaeos Yates to death. He and his family had been visiting Pye, whose home is down the street from Blankenship’s house.
After Anderson was formally charged, Grady County District Attorney Jason Hicks said at a news conference.
Chickasha police officers went to Pye’s home on Feb. 9 after a 911 call came from the home, according to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, but the caller hung up.
Everyone please please please lift Tasha Yates up in prayer. She lost Kaeos last night, her baby girl….I can’t imagine…
They found Leon Pye and his granddaughter dead when the officers forced their way inside. Delsie Pye, who was also stabbed, was rushed to receive treatment at a hospital.
She has been released since then. Anderson, who Delsie Pye described as the person who had assaulted her family, was the only other person inside the house, authorities said. On Feb. 15, Anderson, who was hospitalized because of his own wounds, was booked into prison.
It was when Anderson was at the Medical Center of the University of Oklahoma that he supposedly admitted to murdering Blankenship. The officers went home and discovered her body.
SBI officials said, “Agents have evidence … that Blankenship was murdered first, Then Anderson went to the Pyes’ house, maiming Delsie and murdering Leon and Kaeos.”
One affidavit states, “Anderson stated that he entered the home by using his shoulder to break into the back door, Anderson killed a white female in the home and removed her heart.
“Anderson then cooked the heart at the Pye home and tried to make Delsie and Leon Pye eat the heart before he attacked them.”
Attorney Robert Wagner told the Oklahoman, “They were surprised to see him just show up, that he was out, They had no prior knowledge that he was being released, and they had never consented to him listing their address as his home.”
