Tulsa Homicide Detectives have identified the remains of a woman found in a south Tulsa apartment.

According to a news release, 57-year-old Helen Elizabeth Johnson was found dead inside her Orchard Park apartment Thursday morning. Police began investigating it as a homicide immediately.

Officers located Johnson's ex-boyfriend, but was released after he was interviewed. Police do not think he was involved in the murder.

Detectives are still investigating and are working on finding a motive and suspect. Detectives have heard rumors that there was a significant amount of foot traffic in Johnson's apartment. Investigators believe this to be an indicator of drug use or selling drugs.

According to police, Johnson had been dead for some time.
