Mother of slain Tulsa teen scared for killer's return, believes she knows who murdered her daughter

TULSA - Friends remembered a Tulsa teen Monday who police say was murdered over the weekend.

The family of 18-year-old Gabrielle Bledsoe says some of the students at Will Rogers High school planned to wear purple Monday in her memory. Family and friends have dropped off teddy bears and balloons outside her north Tulsa home since the news of her death.

Bledsoe's mother, Lacrecia Bledsoe, arrived home Saturday morning to find her daughter stabbed to death in their north Tulsa home. Now back in the home, she fears the killer could strike again.

She also says she knows who that person may be.

Police questioned several people but so far no arrests have been made. Detectives are looking for DNA from the knife at the crime lab.
