Why this petition matters

Started by Brittany Munsell

Officers located and arrested 51-year-old Michael S. Geiger after an hours long search.

Geiger, a suspect in the homicide of a child earlier this morning, was located on the rooftop of a business near the Grand Prairie Motel, 2818 S. Van Buren, formerly the OYO Motel.

officers responded to the motel in reference to a medical emergency. The 911 call reported a child drowning in the motel’s pool.

Officers arrived and found 2-year-old Caliyah J. Guyton had been removed from the pool. Officers performed CPR until Life EMS arrived on the scene. They transported the child to Integris Bass Baptist Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

It was noted Guyton had injuries consistent with a sexual assault.

During their investigation, officers determined Geiger was person of interest in Guyton’s death.

EPD Detectives were contacted and sent to the motel to begin their investigation.

Geiger fled the motel prior to officers arriving and was seen on foot heading northwest. A K-9 officer responded to the scene to begin a track but lost Geiger’s trail near Richland Road when it began to rain.

After an intense search by all available officers, at 9:13 a.m. Geiger was located on top of a building at 2710 S. Van Buren and taken into custody on complaints of first-degree murder and first-degree rape.

Geiger did not confess to the crimes during an interview but made statements that corroborated physical evidence collected at the scene.

This investigation remains active and ongoing.

“This was an aggravated assault on an innocent child and a very disturbing incident,” Lt. Bryan Hart said. “We’re glad this case was brought to an end in a timely manner with Mr. Geiger’s arrest.”

We want to thank all of our Patrol Officers, Detectives, Administrators and Civilian personnel who helped bring this suspect to justice. We also want to thank the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office, Waukomis Police Department, Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Oklahoma Department of Corrections and other law enforcement agencies who assisted us in our investigation.

Oklahoma Department of Corrections’ records show Geiger was discharged from ODOC custody March 29, 2022, on a 10-year sentence for a charge of kidnapping out of Oklahoma County.


We want justice as a community for this sweet little girl. Her parents need charged as well. 

Please sign our petition the public wants to know that no one is getting away with negligence of Caliyah the public wants police to charge the parents with negligence or child endangerment at the least.
