Joseph Tillman is back on the streets of Tulsa.
Tillman is the man Tulsa Police had called a person of interest in the execution-style killing of four women at the Fairmont Terrace Apartment building on Monday in Tulsa.
Rebeika Powell, Kayetie Powell Melchor, Misty Nunley and Julie Jackson were found dead in the apartment just after noon on Monday.
Powell’s 3-year-old son was also found in the room but was not hurt.
Police have also talked to the little boy.
KRMG News confirmed that Tillman was in the process of release around 4:45 a.m. after police had interviewed him about the murders.
Police were holding Tillman in December on a charge of domestic assault and battery. His bail on that count was $1,500. That means Tillman only paid $150.00 to be released.
Earlier this week, Tulsa Police Officer Leland Ashley told KRMG News that Tulsans should be cautious.
“I don’t want to say the community should be in fear or not be in fear but we do have an individual or individuals who killed four people and I think that’s enough to be concerned about.”
Police confirmed with KRMG this week that Tillman was in the apartment the day of the murders, but would not elaborate.
Ashley told KRMG that police will continue their search.
“Detectives are beating the bushes as well as patrol officers and the gang unit,” Ashley said.
Police urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-2677.
