The search for suspects in the murder of a Tulsa man.

Police were called to the Balcony Apartments at 2432 East 5th Place just before two o'clock Thursday morning. That's where they found 28-year-old Juan Martinez stabbed to death.

Authorities say someone helped Martinez into his brother’s apartment. That someone then disappeared. Tulsa Police Captain Larry Kinney, “it looks like the victim was stabbed outside the apartment, managed to stumble inside the apartment where his brother was and then collapsed there.”

Tulsa Police want to talk to the man who helped Martinez into the apartment. They don't know if he's a witness, or a suspect right now.

It's the second homicide in the area this month.
