Tulsa Group Meeting Downtown to Discuss Fairmont Murders
TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A hastily assembled group of Tulsa politicians and law enforcement authorities created after last week's shooting deaths of four women in a crime-plagued south Tulsa neighborhood is set to meet at Tulsa City Hall.
The Public Safety Intelligence Working Group plans to meet for the first time Tuesday as it works to submit findings to city councilors. The topics to be discussed include improving ways of getting citizens to come forward with anonymous tips about area crimes.
The group was formed after 23-year-old twin sisters Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson were dead on Jan. 7 in an apartment on the city's south side.
No arrests have been made and investigators have released no details - including possible suspects or a motive.
