Tulsa Police release new information after a body is found decomposing in a west Tulsa home.

Investigators believe the body is that of 55-year-old Robert Sampson. Tulsa Police officers arrived on the scene near 4500 West 5th St. Thursday after the landlord found a decomposing body.

According to information from the homicide division, the landlord reported Sampson missing on March 6. Homicide detective Dave Walker said there's enough evidence at the scene to suggest the body is Sampson's.

Detectives will continue to treat it as a murder investigation.

Court records show Sampson has numerous convictions for DUI and drug abuse.
