Tahlequah Murder Victim's Car Found

New developments tonight in a homicide case out of Tahlequah. A woman was murdered inside her home at 102 Kupsick Street. Her body was found Friday. The Tahlequah Police Department requested OSBI assist with the case. The woman’s car, a 2011 red Ford Fiesta, was missing. Tonight, a description of that vehicle aired on Tulsa broadcast news stations. A viewer recognized the car as one parked at the Stonehaven Villas complex near 81st Street and U.S. 169. That viewer called Tulsa Police. Tulsa officers secured the scene around the vehicle and contacted OSBI and Tahlequah detectives. Agents and detectives are at the scene photographing the area and canvassing the complex for any witness information. The vehicle has been towed to a secured building. Tomorrow, OSBI latent print analysts will attempt to lift suspect fingerprints.

The woman’s identity still has not been confirmed by the medical examiner’s officer nor has her cause and manner of death been officially ruled.
