Tulsa police say a man whose body was found in a ditch in east Tulsa on Wednesday morning likely died accidentally.
Homicide Sgt. Brandon Watkins said detectives believe the man, who has not been identified, fell into the rocky area. Surveillance video from surrounding businesses should confirm whether that’s true.
Police were called to the area behind an auto shop near 11th Street and Garnett Road after 7 a.m., and the crime scene tape quickly drew a crowd.
The man’s body was found near the 11th Street bridge over the ditch, in the southwest corner of the intersection behind an oil change service.
