Tulsa police say they made a speedy homicide bust thanks to a piece of technology hundreds of miles in space. This is an amazing example of fast police work. Someone reportedly led officers to this East Tulsa home early this morning in the same neighborhood where they'd earlier responded to reports of a domestic dispute and prowler. Inside the home they found the body of a woman who witnesses say had a strained relationship with her ex-boyfriend. Investigators called the trucking company where Ernest Zollicoffer worked and company officials used a global positioning system to track the exact location of his truck. Within two hours of finding the woman's body police found their number-one suspect at an East Tulsa truck stop. After a brief foot chase and fight Zollicoffer was taken into custody for suspicion of murder.
