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 brotherâ€™s apartment. That someone then disappeared. Tulsa Police Captain Larry Kinney, â€œit looks like the victim was stabbed outside the apartment, managed to stumble inside the apartment where his brother was and then collapsed there.â€
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.
