Just more than three weeks after five horses were stolen from Southern Arkansas University's Mulerider Stables, the remains of the final missing horse have been recovered in Oklahoma.

According to SAU Police Chief Eric Plummer, the remains of "Credit Card," a 15-year-old sorrel gelding, were found by the McCurtain County, Okla., Sheriff's Department on Friday morning, Nov. 25.
