A 16-year-old boy is Tulsa’s latest homicide victim. Police were called to a duplex at 11107 East 17th Place this morning. The victim's older brother had returned home around 1:30 AM to find his brother dead.

Police say the older brother had talked with the victim on the telephone about an hour earlier. The younger brother told him that the ex-girlfriend of the older brother was at the residence.

Police say the victim was stabbed in the neck. They say there were no real signs of a struggle at the east Tulsa residence. “There's a possibility there may have been some type of a struggle, because one chair was overturned,” said Tulsa Police Captain Nick Hondros. “But that's the extent of any sign of a struggle.”

Police tell The News on Six they are looking for the ex-girlfriend of the victim's brother for questioning.

The victim's name hasn't been released pending notification of other family members.
