OSBI seeks second person in Tuttle woman’s death

Ponca City Now - September 1, 2015 10:42 am

Monday afternoon, OSBI released a photograph of an unidentified man considered a person of interest in the death of 26-year-old Kayla Garbelman of Tuttle.

She was found dead inside a motel room Friday at the Newcastle Motel on Main Street. The medical examiner is still working on her cause and manner of death. OSBI is working the case as a homicide at this time.

Today’s picture release is a higher resolution and shows more of the individual.

This person is not the same man in the sketch released Friday. Investigators have direct evidence the man in the photograph was with Garbelman on Thursday, the day she checked into the motel.

This man is a middle aged Hispanic male, medium build, wearing a bright red T-shirt with what appears to say Red Day on the front, khaki long pants, white high top tennis shoes, and a dark colored baseball hat. If anyone has information on who he is, please contact the OSBI at 1-800-522-8017. He is only considered a person of interest.
