TULSA - Tulsa Homicide detectives are investigating a homicide, Tulsa's 54th of the year, at Ivy Place Apartments on 139 N. Garnett Rd.
Sgt. David Walker, Tulsa Police Department homicide detective, says Police received a call about 10:24 Saturday morning, with someone reporting a woman dead inside an apartment within the complex, stabbed to death.
According to police reports, first responders arrived and found a 57 year old female dead. The victim was inside the apartment and lying on the floor. We are treating this as a homicide, Sgt. Walker said.
The Medical Examiner arrived and confirmed that the woman will be a homicide victim. At this time there is no motive or suspects. The apartment did not appear to have been ransacked but there were signs of a slight struggle.
Family members identified the woman as Felicia Levern Jones.
Her son, Rico Markham said she was a supportive and loving mother.
”She was so clean and meticulous. Great cook. Had us in church every Sunday, every Wednesday. I mean like I said, my mother wasn’t perfect, she was my hero man. I don’t say that because she’s gone now either,” said Markham.
Police believe Jones was seen last Thursday.
