(Tulsa-AP) -- Authorities are continuing to search today for suspects in an apparent double homicide at a south Tulsa apartment complex.

Police have reportedly made no arrests and don't yet know a motive for the slaying of the two women. But they believe the women were killed by someone they knew.

The bodies of 20-year-old Jessica Lynn Smith and 18-year-old Jessica Ridenhour were found yesterday at an apartment in the Fountain Crest Apartment Homes. Police spokesman Lucky Lamons says the two appeared to have died from blunt trauma.

Smith lived at the apartment with a female roommate who had left for work about 9 a-m yesterday. Ridenhour had spent the night at the apartment.
