Double homicide suspect speaks with KTUL reporter before arrest

In a bold and brazen move that has stunned even Tulsa police homicide detectives, one of the men arrested in connection with the killing of two young adults, actually gave an interview at the scene of the crime with Tulsa's Channel 8 less than an hour after the bodies were discovered.

The shocking discovery came to light a day after Darren Price was arrested in connection with the execution style killing of Ethan Nichols and Carissa Horton Sunday Night.Hours before his arrest however, Price returned to the park where he made small talk with a KTUL photojournalist then agreed to speak on camera about what was taking place.In the interview Price is asked what he thought about the crime scene and had this to say, " I thinks its real crazy. I bring my kids out here to play. Got to raise the question, is it safe to even walk around this town with people just dying and stuff."

He goes on to add that, "It don't make me feel real easy and I stay close by here."Chilling when we have just learned some of the details into these senseless killings.Police say Nichols and Horton arrived at the park shortly before 9:30 p.m. Sunday.And according to police, Darren Price and Jirao Davis had allegedly agreed to rob the couple after ambushing them.Police say that's exactly what they did, then decided to force the two to their knees and shoot them execution style.The two then run from the scene only to return two hours later and take Nichols'{} 2001 Pontiac Grand Am.Shortly before 11:00 a.m. Monday a couple walking their dog discovered the bodies and called police.Around that same time police say the Nichols family reported him missing and gave a description of his Grand Am. {}Police also say that the family had received a text from his phone around 12:15 p.m. Monday.
