TULSA, Okla. — New technology is giving Tulsa police better, faster leads to help solve gun crimes.
The longer the bad guy is out there, the more potential they have to think they’ve gotten away with it and it’s alright to hurt people,” said Tulsa Police Homicide Sgt. Dave Walker.
Walker said the shell casings found at the scene of Dyer’s murder were collected and loaded into a computer system called the IBIS Brass Trax System. The ATF gave it to Tulsa police for free. It offers 3-D images of ballistics evidence. Within minutes, new evidence is compared to thousands of images in the national database. The information that comes up is then given to detectives as an investigative lead.
