TULSA – Homicide detectives are trying to piece together what happened after finding a man in west Tulsa dead.

Tulsa police say they were called to the home around noon to discover the man dead in his bedroom and his vehicle was missing. 

Police later identified the victim as 66-year-old Terry McCorkle. 

The home was discovered disheveled, according to TPD. Authorities are still trying to determine how the man was killed. 

Family members of the victim gave another address as to where the missing vehicle could be and detectives noticed the car driving around that location. Eventually police pulled over the vehicle that held four altogether: two men and two women.

Police arrested 29-year-old Chris Wilson who was driving McCorkle's car. He is expected to face charges of first degree murder. 

Police interviewed a total of five people in this investigation. There is a possibility more arrests could occur.
