Please pray for our family. We've kept up with what news from Tulsa we could since my Uncle's disappearance. This has hit all of his family from Alabama and Georgia very hard. My Uncle Thomas was a very energetic and fun loving man. Why anyone would want to hurt him is beyond me. We have our suspicions about who is responsible and hope that person is punished to the full extent of the law, but no matter what, that person will be judged at the gates of Heaven and have to answer for their actions. If anyone knows anything about this tragic crime, please, we beg you to contact the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigative Divison at 918-596-8661.
