Court records show the bond has been increased for a possible witness or person of interest in the recent quadruple homicide.
On Tuesday, the Tulsa District Attorney has filed a motion to increase the bond for a possible person of interest or potential witness to the recent quadruple homicide.
Freddie Hayes is being held on possession of a controlled drug as well as carrying a concealed weapon, and also had warrants for failure to pay and trespassing. Hayes was arrested on January 11th after someone called police to report an intoxicated person; police questioned him and found drugs and brass knuckles in his pockets. He’s being held on $11,000 bond.
The DA requested a bond increase because they believe the investigation into the quadruple homicide shows Hayes is “at minimum a witness” to the murder of four women at the Fairmont Terrace apartments on January 7th. Court documents also allege the investigation found evidence that points to Hayes as a person of interest in those murders and the DA fears Hayes would flee the jurisdiction if released from custody.
Rebeika Powell, Kayetie Melchor, Julie Jackson and Misty Nunley were found shot to death in an apartment near 61st and Peoria on January 7th, 2013.
The DA’s motion also claims Hayes could be a potential public safety risk and claims his lengthy criminal history justifies a bond increase to $250,000. The DA also requests if Hayes makes bond that he is required to wear an ankle monitor and not be allowed to leave Tulsa County.
