On Wednesday, Tulsa police announced they had made an arrest in the quadruple murders at Fairmont Terrace in January.
Ashley Cox has lived at Fairmont Terrace for three months. On Wednesday morning, she noticed two Tulsa Police officers which nothing out of the ordinary at this crime plagued community.
“They were doing sweeps this morning on warrant sweeps and stuff like that,” Cox said.
Those officers were serving a warrant on James Poore. They then arrested him on the belief that he and his brother Cedric gunned down four women last month.
“I am happy. It's good. I don't think it will make it safe,” she said.
Cox says she is just speaking the truth. She says if you don't believe her you don’t know what it’s like to live at Fairmont Terrace.
“The stuff I have been through and seen in the past three months is crazy, crazy. Last night the cops were here because of a robbery in my apartment, and they're like, 'Living here is not worth your life.'"
While she looks for a new place to live, Cox says she'll try and make the best of a less than perfect living situation. She says she will be thankful for small glimmers of hope like Wednesday’s arrests and the city's renewed focus on crime fighting in her neighborhood.
“Nothing's going to change. The security up there, that's all fine and well, but it doesn't change nothing.”
She believes while she might be one of the only ones to say it everyone knows arrests or not, life at Fairmont Terrace hasn't changed much.
“Everybody that lives knows what goes on here.”
