Investigators Search for Person of Interest in Creek County Victim's Death

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Agents, Creek County Investigators, and Tulsa County Deputies served a search warrant last night at 9723 E. 33rd, Apt. 704 in Tulsa where Leticia Melendez Reyes and Jose Acevedo (d.o.b. 6/14/1963) lived with their two young children. Reyes was found dead inside her vehicle in Creek County Tuesday. Her two children were also inside the vehicle. They were not harmed.

Investigators have interviewed numerous people with ties to Reyes to help develop a time line of events in her life leading up to her death. However, agents are searching for Acevedo to ask him questions concerning his relationship with the victim. Reyes filed an emergency protection order May 2nd against Acevedo.

The medical examiner’s office has not yet ruled on Reyes’ cause and manner of death.

If anyone has information on Acevedo’s whereabouts, please contact OSBI immediately at 1-800-522-8017.
