TULSA, Oklahoma -- DNA evidence has solved a Tulsa cold case murder. Homicide detectives now say they now know who killed Alicia Thomas.
Her body was found in 2003, stabbed several times in the back, wrapped in a carpet, and dumped in a creek near 12th and Memorial.
Police say DNA from her body matches a man shot by police just months after the murder.
Luis Lara-Martinez pointed a gun at officers, and they opened fire. He was the prime suspect in another murder at the time.
