Three days before Christmas in 2011, 55-year-old Peggy Gaytan was murdered during her shift at a Shell gas station at 36th Street and Harvard Avenue.
Monday, Tulsa Police arrested a man they believe is responsible.
TPD Chief Wendell Franklin said 27-year-old Patrick Hamstard is being charged with Gaytan’s murder, and a second suspect in the case has died in the eight-plus years since.
"So, this closes the book on this particular homicide for us. It closes a painful chapter for the Gaytan family and brings closure for them," Franklin said.
