OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma City police detectives are trying to find the person responsible for killing an ex-felon in a southeast Oklahoma City home.

Police were called out to a house in the 2800 block of S.E. 47th Street just after 1 p.m. Monday, after a friend found a dead body inside.

The home on S.E. 47th Street is abandoned now, and many neighbors in the area had no idea about a body being found inside the house.

But one neighbor we talked to says he's not surprised it happened.

"Yes there's always trouble at this house right here," said Opaul Mitchell, who lives just down the street from where 33-year-old Lyle Easky was found murdered. He claims he even talked to him the same day. "I've seen him yesterday."

But Mitchell says he had no idea Easky had served time in prison.

Easky had served time on a drug conviction and for possession of a stolen vehicle. Which Mitchell says explains a lot about their last conversation.

"He was trying to sell of something, but what he mainly wanted was drugs," said Mitchell. "It's crazy how much drugs is in this neighborhood."

Mitchell says Easky moved into this now abandoned home about six months ago with his girlfriend. And things were not always rosy.

"I've seen her chasing him around with a knife or what not," Mitchell claimed.

Police confirm they did receive one domestic-related call to this house back in February, but that there have been no other calls, until Monday.

Despite that police still have not named a suspect in this case, or made any arrests. Which means a killer is still on the loose. And that does not sit well with Mitchell and his family.

Police are encouraging anyone with any information to call the Homicide tip line at (405)-297-1200.

Easky's murder marks the 51st homicide for Oklahoma City this year.
