OSBI: Canadian County homicide suspect Derek Posey arrested in Tulsa by ATF, OSBI agents, police

TULSA - A deadly house fire last week in Canadian County was ruled a homicide last week after two people died in a suspicious manner, authorities say, and the suspect was tracked to a home in Tulsa.

Derek Posey was arrested Tuesday at a home in west Tulsa.  He's facing two counts of murder.

According to the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, investigators developed a suspect after the June 16 fire in Calumet.  OSBi agents then contacted the TPD's Sex Crimes Unit.

Assisted by the Fugitive Warrants Squad, OSBI and ATF, sex crimes detectives served a search warrant at the home at 4101 S. 39th W. Ave.

Posey was located and taken into custody around 11:30 a.m.  He was transported by the OSBI to the Canadian County Jail in El Reno where he is awaiting formal charges.
