Ponca City Now - April 22, 2019 10:43 am

ELK CITY, OKLA. – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation reports Tulsa Police pulled over the driver of a truck after midnight and took 49-year-old Gregory Killough into custody as a “person of interest” in connection to two homicides.

Tulsa officers also found a handgun in the truck.

The first homicide was of a woman who was found dead early Sunday in a parking lot in Elk City.

The Elk City Police Department received a call of shots fired in the 400 block of N. State and found the woman’s body when they responded. During the course of their investigation, officers discovered her car was missing.

At approximately 6:30 p.m. Sunday, officers from the Sayre, Okla. Police Department found the female victim’s car in the 100 block of W. Sadler. Sayre officers contacted the Elk City Police Department to notify them the car had been located.

Elk City detectives joined Sayre officers and together made entry into the house in Sayre. Upon entering, they found a deceased male who also appeared to be the victim of a homicide. They discovered his truck was missing. After finding the second victim, the Sayre Police Department contacted the OSBI to assist with the investigation.

The two homicides are connected and a person of interest was developed, the OSBI stated. A statewide alert was issued to police for the missing truck, which led Tulsa Police to stop and arrest Killough, driving the truck.

OSBI agents and Elk City detectives are conducting interviews today and the investigation is ongoing.

The investigation involved the Elk City Police Department, Sayre Police Department, Tulsa Police Department and the Beckham County Sheriff’s Office, as well as the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation.
