Coweta man being sought by authorities for suspected murder in custody


By John Dobberstein, Editor

The Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office and FBI said a Coweta man who is a homicide suspect is in custody.

Tyler James Lewis, 23, turned himself in to deputies and is being held in custody for the FBI. 

Just after 11 p.m. Sunday, deputies received a 911 call to a report of man found murdered in his home at 5628 N. Gillette Ave. in Turley. When deputies arrived they found 23-year-old Tyler Lane Kirk deceased.

A family member discovered Kirk’s body when she stopped by to check on him, after Kirk stopped returning texts messages Sunday afternoon.

Because both the victim and suspect in this case are Native American, TCSO is assisting the FBI in this investigation.
