Tulsa police have a possible break in the quadruple homicide investigation.

Police are conducting interviews with people who may have firsthand information about the murders.  FOX23 is at the homicide division awaiting further information.

Police have not confirmed any arrests; but FOX23 has learned potential witnesses are being questioned. Police say they have made arrests surrounding the investigation, but no arrests have been made for the murders.

Police say they are also working to stop unverified information from getting out, TPD is concerned that information could put people's lives in danger.

On Friday, police said they did not have new information to report on the investigation.  On Thursday, police said they do not believe Misty Nunley and Julie Jackson were targets in a recent quadruple homicide.

Jackson and Nunley were shot and killed inside an apartment at Fairmont Terrace with Rebeika Powell and her twin sister Kayetie Melchor on January 7th. Sergeant Dave Walker tells FOX23’s Abbie Alford that the twins were well liked and the person of interest in the case, Joseph Tillman, had a relationship with one of the victims.

After questioning Tillman in the days after the murders police say he is not a suspect or a person of interest at this time. Police say they have questioned dozens of people, including many people who liked the twins, and have been chasing down leads in the case.

Police urge anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS.

Actually maynot I didn't vote for Dewee,I'm a fiscal conservative and he definetly is not,he is part of the wealthy entitled elite that runs on a certain ticket just to get elected,maybe you could run on your platform of coddle the criminal,tree hugger,tax the evil corporations,spread the wealth of those trying to make it on 60 grand a year socialist wet dream ticket...you tax the companies they just pass it on to the consumer,you coddle the criminals and this incident is a fine example of what you get,you spread the wealth and they bite the hand that feeds them,I owe nothing to no one and take only what I work for I see what handouts have done to my once proud people and I am disgusted with it.

You know he's got Betty Davis eyes... Can't really see past the end of his nose. Typical Republican #8-]] Makes a mess and just leave it for a democrat to clean it up. Well back to my neanderthall snooze. Tomato soup with garlic and onion . A few. Chive crackers for more filling.

These are not random acts of violence,these murders were ordered by the higher ups in these gangs,for fear of offending someone these gangs have become deeply entrenched here,Tulsa is known nationwide for being extremely weak on crime,particularly the judges who let them off so easily,it will take some kind of outside help to stop it,think we need to look at a whole different gene pool next election,these neanderthal liberal faux republicans ain't cuttin' it
