FOX23 has team coverage following a double murder in Skiatook.

Our crews are on scene in Skiatook and in downtown Tulsa as police continue their investigation.

The Northern Oklahoma Violent Crimes Task Force arrested suspect Michael Stanley, who they believe is connected to both murders.

We're told the task force asked to start investigating Stanley in connection to the murder Tuesday morning.

FOX23 was the only crew on scene when the Northern Oklahoma Violent Crime Task Force arrested Stanley at 4600 North Lewis, Tuesday afternoon.

When they tried to arrest Stanley, he wouldn't cooperate which forced officers to shoot him with a Taser.

FOX23 has also learned another development in this story.

Police found the body of a 16-year-old girl in a van in the Tall Chief Cove area near Skiatook.

Police won't yet confirm the relationship between Stanley, the girl and last night's victim, Esther Driskell.

But we have confirmed that police believe the murders are connected.

Police took Stanley from the Tulsa Police Department to Osage County to be questioned for the murder of the 16-year-old girl.

We are still piecing all of this together for you and we will have an update on FOX23 News at 9pm and also right here on FOX23.COM
