Cause of Death Released in Tulsa Deaths
The medical examiners office is releasing the cause of death for the four women found dead in Tulsa last week.
The M-E says they each died from a gunshot would to the head. The report did say that the full autopsy results are still pending for the twin sisters who died, Rebeika Powell and Kayetie Melchor.
They were found with Misty Nunley and Julie Jackson last week in an apartment in South Tulsa.
Investigators have not said how the women knew each other or why they may have been targeted.
Court records show a man who police say is "at a minimum" a witness is in the Tulsa County Jail this morning. He is being held on unrelated charges in the Tulsa County jail. He hasn't been charged or arrested in the quadruple murder, though a judge increased his bond Wednesday from $11,000 to $250,000.

Teen in devastated Okla. town handing out hugs
May 25, 2013 02:26 GMT
MOORE, Okla. (AP) -- The people of the Oklahoma town where a deadly tornado struck could use just about everything -- cleaning supplies, food, water, shelter.
Thirteen-year-old Halle Carr thought residents of her hometown could also use a hug after the twister Monday that killed 24 people in Moore.
Halle has been standing on a corner with a white sign that reads: "Need a hug? I am here!" And people are taking her up on the offer.
On Friday, people in work trucks, cars and vans loaded with belongings rolled down their windows and reached out their arms to the girl. Some shouted words of encouragement.
Halle said it makes her feel good to spread a little cheer. She said she'll come out every day, as long as she thinks she's needed.
