TULSA, Okla. (AP) — Tulsa police say the investigation of a quadruple killing at a crime-ridden south Tulsa apartment complex is in no danger of growing cold, despite concerns from some family members who are anxious for an arrest.

Police say detectives have interviewed dozens of people involved in the case and anonymous tips continue to come into the Crime Stoppers hotline.

The bodies of 23-year-old twin sisters Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor, 33-year-old Misty Nunley and 55-year-old Julie Jackson were discovered last week. A preliminary medical examiner's report indicated the women died of gunshot wounds to the head.

No arrests have been made, and investigators have released no other details — including possible suspects, how the women knew each other or why they may have been targeted.
