Pastor's burning death remains unsolved

CHICKASHA  The death of an Oklahoma pastor, whose remains were discovered burned near a church last summer, is still unsolved.

Michael Dean Walworth's burned remains were found near the First Missionary Baptist Church in June. 

A report from the medical examiner released Tuesday classifies Walworth's death as "undetermined" and "unknown."

Records show Walworth, 55, was a registered sex offender in Texas and pleaded guilty to indecent exposure with a child in the 1990s. But his neighbors paint a different picture of Walworth, who ran their church. Montyica Stephens said Walworth focused his attention on the present and "what he could do to help you become a better person."
