A man allegedly shot and killed a woman and himself after she refused to leave her husband for him.
The two reportedly had an ongoing affair, Tulsa Police Sgt. Dave Walker said. The investigation into the murder-suicide began about 7 p.m. Saturday when the man, who police have not yet identified, reported the woman with whom he was involved as missing.
Walker said during the missing person investigation, an acquaintance of the woman, who police have also not yet identified, reported a Facebook video that showed the woman tied and beaten.
“That friend recognized the wife as the person who was reported missing,” Walker said.
Walker said the woman was married to another man. The man accused of orchestrating the abuse and murder-suicide had been separated from his ex-wife for about a year.
Police tracked the missing woman’s vehicle late Saturday or early Sunday morning to the man’s residence in the 12200 block of East 38th Place. Officers surrounded the residence and attempted to make contact with the residents.
Eventually, police believe they heard gunshots. Walker said the possible shots were “very faint.” After securing a search warrant, officers entered the residence around 6 a.m. Sunday and found the woman and man dead from gunshot wounds.
Investigators allege the man was the individual who pulled the trigger.
