NW OKC Neighbors disturbed by murder next door
OKLAHOMA CITY — Officials identified the victim of an apparent homicide after police discovered her body this weekend.
Authorities found a woman’s body in a home in the 4000 block of N.W. 14th St. on Saturday.
“There was [were] so many policemen over there that I wondered about it.” Neighbor Virginia Abel said.
Police confirmed the woman found in the home is 74-year-old Gynette Tucker.
“Typically a homicide victim isn’t somebody in their 70’s. It happens from time to time, I’m not saying it doesn’doesn’t happen, but it certainly is unusual.” MSgt. Gary Knight said.
According to Oklahoma City officers, they could not determine how she had died when they arrived at the scene.
However, the Oklahoma State Medical Examiner’s office says the woman’s body showed signs of trauma which may have led to her death.
“Obviously, we know that that goes on around the city. It’s weird when it strikes this close to home.” Neighbor Dillon Brattin said.
Oklahoma City police said they would like to speak to anyone who may have information in this case.
