TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Mayor Dewey Bartlett hosted a forum Tuesday to address the recent slayings of four women in a neighborhood at 61st and Peoria.

Bartlett said he discussed what needs are in the area where police discovered the bodies of 23-year-old twin sisters Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Powell-Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson.

No arrests have been made in the January 7 killings, and investigators have released no other details including possible suspects, how the women knew each other or why they may have been targeted.

According to court records, police have identified a man who "at a minimum" witnessed the killings at the apartment.

The mayor's office said the forum was recorded "live to tape" and will be televised at a later date on Cox Cable channel 21, and TGOV, Tulsa Government Television on Cox Channel 24.
