TULSA, Okla. — A man turned himself in Monday in connection with a homicide in north Tulsa the night before.

Just after 11 p.m. Tulsa County deputies got a 911 call about a man found dead in his home in the 5600 block of North Gillette. Deputies found 23-year-old Tyler Lane Kirk dead.

A family member discovered the body when they stopped by to check on him, after he stopped returning texts messages Sunday afternoon.

Tyler James Lewis of Coweta turned himself in on Monday. Because both the victim and suspect, in this case, are Native American, TCSO is assisting the FBI in this investigation.
