TULSA - Tulsa police reportedly have a person of interest under questioning in Monday's quadruple homicide.
Details remain sketchy as the situation is developing rapidly, but it appears they may have the names of at least two other potential suspects.
Four woman were shot to death early Monday afternoon at the Fairmont Terrace apartments near 61st St and S. Peoria Ave.
The victims are identified as 23-year-old Rebeika Powell, 23-year-old Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.
Powell’s 3-year-old son was also found in the room but was not hurt. Ofc. Leland Ashley with the Tulsa Police Department tells KRMG the young boy was unharmed, but clearly traumatized.
A possible witness in the case, Joseph Tillman, was questioned and released. Despite reports to the contrary, detectives tell KRMG he was never a person of interest in the homicides.
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.
Police confirmed with KRMG this week that Tillman was in the apartment the day of the murders, but would not elaborate.
Tulsa Police are asking anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at (918) 596-COPS.
An anonymous benefactor contacted KRMG offering to help Larry Powell, the father of twins Rebeika Powell and Kayetie, to come up with the money to bury his daughters.
KRMG was able to get the man in contact with Powell the pair set up an account at Arvest Bank.
Donations to the 'Kayetie and Rebeika Powell fund' can be made at any area Arvest Bank branch. The account number is 81774889.
