Tulsa Police need help identifying two men captured on surveillance that could give police the information they need to solve the murder of Nancy Strait.

She was killed in her home on East Virgin and her husband, Bob, was brutally beaten.

TPD believes the men in photos released Friday may know more about the Straits’ stolen Plymouth Neon.
The car was taken on March 14th when the Straits were attacked. 20-year-old Tyrone Woodfork is in jail for the crime.
 
He is charged with first-degree murder, burglary, and two counts of robbery with a firearm.
Police found Woodfork driving the couple's stolen car the next day. They think Woodfork had accomplices.

"I hope you come forward,” said Andra Harper, the Straits' daughter. “I hope you do what you need to do. You may think you know nothing, it may be a little tidbit that maybe what it takes to break the case."

Leslie Morris didn't know Straits but knows they could've been her loved ones. She's begging anyone with information to end the silence and come forward. 

"If I see something happening I'm going to say it. I'm not going to be afraid. Don't let fear hold you back. Fear is what stops a lot of people," said Morris.

She's helping get the wheels turning on "Ride for Strait Justice." The ride will be on May 12th beginning at the Town Pump Lounge at one p.m.

"These people are still out there. If this doesn't bother them, what they did then they're going to do it again. So, they need to be caught, they need to be tried," said Harper. "They need to take the punishment that is handed down to them."

Bless their hearts, justice for these two old peoples death will probably never be, people saw these killers but if the witnesses were black I don't expect anyone to speak up, either because they were white or because no one has the decency or courage to come forward.

This was a hate crime. Blacks killing whites. Charge them with a hate crime or white people will call in the pope and protest.
