Tulsa police hunt man accused of gunning down his estranged wife

Tulsa police hunt man accused of gunning down his estranged wife

Police hope the public can help them track down the man they say murdered his estranged wife outside her Tulsa home early Thursday morning. Homicide Det. Dave Walker says they believe Jose Gomez Baca shot and killed Elizabeth Rodriguez shortly after she arrived home about 1:30 a.m. near Admiral and Memorial in an ambush-style attack. Family members of the victim were in the home, including her brother, Gilberto Rodriguez. “I was in my room, my brother woke me up and told me that my sister was dying outside,” Rodriguez told KRMG news partner FOX23. “I came outside and she was in the car dying. My mom was holding her, she died in my mom’s hands.” Sobbing, he couldn’t continue the interview. Police say Gomez Baca is armed with a handgun and a shotgun, should be considered extremely dangerous, and should not be approached. He’s believed to be driving a Gray, 2004 Dodge Ram pickup truck, with Oklahoma tag 146 QAO. Anyone spotting him or the vehicle is urged to call 911.

Trump admits he has no tapes of conversations with Comey

Trump admits he has no tapes of conversations with Comey

Almost six weeks after he suggested on Twitter that he might have “tapes” of conversations with former FBI Director James Comey, President Donald Trump on Thursday acknowledged that he “did not make” and does “not have” any such recordings, which had drawn interest from lawmakers in Congress. “James Comey better hope that there are no “tapes” of our conversations before he starts leaking to the press!” the President tweeted just three days after firing Comey last month. But in a pair of tweets on Thursday afternoon, Mr. Trump said if there are tapes, he doesn’t have them. …whether there are 'tapes' or recordings of my conversations with James Comey, but I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 22, 2017 The question of whether there were “tapes” of conversations between the President and Comey had roiled the Congress, and the investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 elections. Asked about it during his testimony earlier this month before the Senate Intelligence Committee, Comey said, “Lordy, I hope there are tapes,” as he said it would be fine to release them to the public. Several committees in Congress had asked for the tapes as well. Comey: “Release all the tapes. I’m good with it.” https://t.co/FbmTfZFI1g — NBC News (@NBCNews) June 8, 2017 The White House had for weeks refused to directly answer questions about whether the President had a taping system that he used in the Oval Office, and if he did, whether it had recorded conversations with Comey. The President had plenty of opportunities before today to say there were no tapes; at a joint news conference with the leader of Romania earlier this month, Mr. Trump sidestepped a direct answer about tapes, and simply promised to let reporters know his answer in the future. “I’m not hinting about anything,” the President said, saying he would let reporters know the answer “in a short period of time.”

Senate Republicans release details of GOP health overhaul bill

Senate Republicans release details of GOP health overhaul bill

After weeks of closed door negotiations, Senate Republicans on Thursday released their plan to overhaul the Obama health law, as GOP leaders again signaled they are ready to push ahead with a vote in the full Senate as early as next week. The 142 page bill – labeled a ‘discussion draft’ – was posted online by the GOP, as the Senate Majority Leader made clear he’s ready to move forward. “Obamacare isn’t working – by any nearly any measure it has failed,” said Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who said action is needed now by the Congress. Democrats immediately denounced the plan. “It’s every bit as bad a the House bill,” said Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer. “In some ways, it’s worse.” “I think it’s a good proposal overall,” said Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), trailed by a pack of reporters as he left a closed door meeting of GOP Senators where the health plan was rolled out. “It’s the first time that we’ve really looked at it as far as the details are concerned,” McCain added. Like McCain, many other GOP Senators had little to say about the details of the plan, having just seen them a few minutes earlier in their meeting. “The bill is on line for all of you to read,” said Sen. Bob Corker (R-TN), who was mobbed by reporters for comment.

It turns out, Tulsa is kind of a big deal over in France.  So much so, they have created a Golden Driller ride at an amusement park,  in Jeanmenil. Tulsa Historical Society Director Michelle Place, Tulsa County Commissioner Karen Keith and former mayor Kathy Taylor will present a proclamation for the ride. “It was a wonderful opportunity to promote Tulsa internationally,” the Tulsa group said.   The ride will celebrate Tulsa, the old west, Route 66 and the Oil Boom.  
One of the suspects involved in an armed robbery claimed to have a bomb with him.   Two males demanded money from the cash register at the Quiktrip at 28 North Harvard Avenue around 2:46 a.m. Thursday. Witnesses saw the men take off westbound on Admiral Court, then possibly make their way to Archer Street. Police may have previously conducted investigations involving the same suspects.  No one was injured.
A domestic argument ends in death for a woman.   Tulsa police called for homicide investigators when they arrived at a house near 8000 East 2 Street at 1:22 a.m. Thursday. 25-year old Jose Gomezbaca called police at 11:27 p.m. Wednesday to report that his wife was missing. She was located by police at another residence and returned to her home where she was shot. Officers had been to the same residence around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday to investigate an argument between a man and a woman. This time the female was found deceased inside a vehicle. She had several gunshot wounds. We’re told Jose Gomezbaca had been armed with a shotgun and a handgun. He fled in a 2004 gray Dodge Ram pickup, bearing Oklahoma tag number 146 QAO. The 26-year old victim's name has not been released.
It’s common knowledge that when arrested for a crime, you have the right to speak to an attorney before answering questions from police. But as of November 1st, DUI suspects will not be allowed to contact an attorney before taking a breath test for alcohol, and could be charged with an additional crime if they refuse to take the test. Attorney Bruce Edge of Tulsa and other defense lawyers who handle DUI cases have filed a lawsuit to block that law from taking effect. Even as the legislature was considering Senate Bill 643 in March, Edge told KRMG he had serious concerns with the way it was written. In a statement sent to KRMG, he argued that it would: Make it a Crime to exercise your Constitutional Rights Punish drivers for even requesting a hearing Consider a person guilty until proven innocent Result in a person losing their Driver’s License even if they were found not guilty in court Result in a person losing their Driver’s License even if the court case were dismissed Result in DPS having to fire almost all of the attorneys within its agency “They’re going to shift the burden of proof in the administrative hearing to where the license holder has to prove their innocence,” Edge said. “I know it’s probably hard to believe what I’m telling you, but it’s in this (Senate) Bill 643.”  He went on to describe the scenario a defendant would face. “This implied consent will say ‘you do not have the right to speak to an attorney. If you refuse, you’ll lose your license. If you take the test and it’s over the limit, you’ll lose your license. Will you take the test?’ I think a lot of people might stand back and say ‘wait a minute, I want to talk to my lawyer, I don’t know what this is talking about, this doesn’t make sense.’ You’d be put down as a refusal, and you would be facing a separate criminal charge - not administrative, criminal charge - under this bill. I don’t think that passes constitutional muster.”  The governor signed the bill, but that same day issued an executive order which seems to contradict part of the new law. Her order would require the Department of Public Safety to allow an administrative hearing if it planned to confiscate a person's license.
We have new information regarding a Tulsa rape case from December of 2015.  The incident took place near North Gilcrease Road.  Police tell us Michael Cartlege was arrested on Wednesday, in connection with the alleged rape.  “He happened upon three teenage kids and proceeds to do horrible things to them,” police said.  “I would say that’s pretty predatory.” Carlege is accused of befriending a juvenile girl and her friends as they walked at Katy Trail.  During that time, he allegedly sexually assaulted the girl.  KRMG's told a tip from a concerned citizen led investigators to Cartlege.
