Investigators Still Looking for Suspect in Weekend Murders

Posted: Updated:

Tulsa police are still searching for the suspect in a shooting that left four people dead in north Tulsa over the weekend.

Emergency crews responded to a home near the 1300 block of North New Haven Avenue where police found two people dead and three others with gun shot wounds.

EMSA transported the three injured people, however two of the injured died as a result of their injuries.

Tulsa Police identified the four victims as 34-year-old Charlie Dake, 35-year-old Melissa Dake, 54-year-old Glenda Harper and 46-year-old Tammy Brunson.

The five people shot were in a garage that had been converted into a bedroom that was very small and compact. Police believe that the suspect acted alone and shot all five people at close range.

Investigators are unsure of the motive, however the residence has been the scene of several arrests for dealing drugs illegally in the past.

According to police, there is reason to believe that illegal drug trade is involved. The latest report states that the crime scene revealed evidence that methamphetamines "...was a common denominator as to the reason why [the] victims associated with each other."

Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker said detectives are having to go back and get more information from witnesses because the first accounts given to them Saturday night were false. He said getting information in methamphetamine cases is difficult.

"What goes with methamphetamine is a paranoia to law enforcement. So, we definitely don't get the right story the first time. We have to keep going back and forth, back and forth," Walker said.

Walker said they are seeing more methamphetamine involved cases.

"I am dealing with a lot of meth addicted people. So, yes I am seeing a lot more. So is it a bigger problem, it's a bigger problem for us at this particular junction in our investigation and our last four or five cases have been meth driven," Walker said. 

Detectives are following all leads that come in just want the accurate information the first time.

"If you want us out of your kitchen and backyard tell us who our killer is and we will go about or business and that's the kind of the message we are sending," Walker said. 

The suspect is described as a white male between 30-40 years of age, 5'10"-6' with a medium build. There is no clothing description at this time.

Investigators are not releasing any information on the victims at this time.
