Woman Sought For Questioning In Connection With Tulsa Homicide; Suspect Identified
TULSA, Oklahoma - Tulsa police want to talk to someone who was one of the last people to have contact with a murder victim shot Wednesday morning. Police said the victim, who was dropped off - and died in - the 11th and Garnett QuikTrip parking lot, was driven there by a woman named Jacalyn Ketcherside.
Police said she drove off before they arrived because she has a warrant for forgery. She's not a suspect in the homicide at this point, but police want to know more about what happened the morning of the murder.
Police said the suspect's name is Mike Jester, and he's in the hospital after police caught him passed out in a trailer following a chase Wednesday afternoon. Authorities arrested 20-year-old Cierra Hughes, who they say was with him in the car during the chase.
Tulsa Homicide Detective Dave Walker said Jester, 46, will be arrested for first-degree murder after he's released from the hospital.
"Jester is still being guarded at St. Francis and there is no update on his condition," Walker said in a news release. Walker said they don't think Jester has been in Tulsa long. Police received information about him from Fayetteville, Arkansas.
A search of Oklahoma Department of Corrections records shows he received a suspended sentence for possession of a controlled substance earlier this year in Delaware County.
They have not released the name of the murder victim.
Meanwhile, if you know where Jacalyn Ketcherside is, call Tulsa police.
