It appears that Jerry Meek may finally be confronted with questions regarding his missing/murdered wife. He is now charged with her murder, charge alleges he deliberately killed her. It was no accident and certainly not Hope "just left" as he told police when she went missing in 2002. Thank GOD and Prosecutor Mark Matloff for being willing to try this man for the murder and give HOPE a voice from her UNKNOWN GRAVE Site.

It's about time ! Who takes their children camping in the winter. Why did he put his land in his girl friends name ? In the paper, a statement made by the child at the time to police said " they had to help daddy with the carpet" . Hope's children were deliberately kept away from their own relatives. There are certain people in Valliant who think they are so much better than every one else. I guess they finally got mud in their face.

Reckon the children were kept away from kin folks because of what may be said by the children and what they may have heard?

INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY..........
I guess we should just start thowing people in jail if we think they are guilty. You didnt see it happen, so dont make an assumption. I can tell you this, he is a good man and great father. That is a fact. He has never kept the kids from them and they dont want to go there. HORRIBLE CONDITIONS.
Why does it matter whos name the land is in? Like they wouldnt check what she has. Maybe he didnt want Hope to get it if she showed up and they are still married.

Now isn't that special "Maybe he didnt want Hope to get it if she showed up and they are still married"...what in the world are you thinking??? If the property was partly hers, she would be entitled to it, what a ridiculous statement to make!!! But it really doesn't matter, does it, it does not look like she will be returning to claim anything that might be hers.

I am asking the question and none of Mr. Meek's FRIENDS seem to know or won't answer.........WHEN DID HE DIVORCE HOPE? He attempted a few short weeks after her disappearance and then again FALL 2011. It ran in the McCurtain Gazette in the legal notices. Tiffanie wasn't his wife, and if manipulation of property, titles, etc. were going on and he truly thinks HOPE IS ALIVE, then he is well aware that he is committing FRAUD>New charges for the INNOCENT UNTIL proven guilty, MR.MEEK. Don't kid yourself. If you are a friend of this man, then ask yourself what kind of life you have been living? Did you ever ask him if he looked for her, if he asked any law enforcement to see if they knew what came of those children's mother? By the way, NOT ALL OF THE CHILDREN are his, AGAIN McCurtain County style, the oldest has a father who loved HOPE very much. He was in ITALY in the military when Hope went missing. I would also like to know just exactly how many of you have visited the homes of ANY of HOPE'S FAMILY? I wouldn't comment on trash because McCurtain County and Red River County are experts on the subject of TRASH. There are many decent people there. THEY ARE NOT ON HERE defending a man charged with PREMEDITATED MURDER. Sleep on that.

If he was such a good father, why doesn't he have custody? For that matter why does Jerry have custody of all the kids? Why didn't he just let them have the kids if he's so bad? You only have your side of the story. Those children are bound to a long stretch of misery and their hand forced that. Oh by the way, Im not from red river county. The Internet server is though.

Please give me your definition of trash. I want to see if I fit in that catagory.
Welfare= no
Drugs=no
Custody of my kids=yes
Full time job=yes
Non running cars in the yard=no
Tall grass=no, I pay to have it mowed
Come on think about what your saying. Do you think I would call someone trash if they weren't guilty as charged???????

Really? If he knew she was dead why in the heck wouldn't he put the land in his name? Im thinking you don't have a clue what your talking about. Your entitled to your opinion, just as I am. Manipulation of property, have you lost your mind. If you were a banker would you loan money to someone in this situation? I would cause I know what kind of person he is, but the banks won't cause the newspaper and small town gossip has run him in the ground. I'm pretty sure that Tiffany is entitled to purchasing land. Sounds like your the one trying to manipulate something.

I checked the legal records and the dissolution of their marriage was granted 12/22/2011. The first attempt for divorce was filed 3/6/2002. It was granted a continuance 7/7/2003. Jerry is out right now on a $250,000 bond. His preliminary is Oct 25th & 26th. And it is possible to prosecute based on circumstantial evidence without a body.

Father of Four, you are pathetic. I asked two questions, neither were answered. Tiffanie seems to be happy to shack up with a man, who thinks his WIFE is alive somewhere, and this WONDERFUL man, has so much respect for BOTH WOMEN, that he does nothing to change the situation for EITHER? Yes you are trash if you are a FRIEND to Mr. Meek. I personally wouldn't want my husband hanging around with a man who has no respect for EITHER WOMAN in this matter. You are ridiculous. IS HE STILL MARRIED TO HOPE MEEK? IF YOU ARE SUCH A DEAR FRIEND OF HIS, you would simply ANSWER. Go ahead and list your pedigree and credentials again. That is comical.

Thank you for checking those records. Perhaps he has married Tiffany after all of these years. I appreciate that information, since his FRIEND, Father of Four, didn't answer. He filed for divorce on the grounds of basic irreconcilable differences. Now that is a laugh. To file abandonment, he would have to PROVE that she abandoned them and his standard of proof apparently couldn't even be met for a divorce. He can't prove she abandoned him to divorce her, but feeds this lame story to their CHILDREN? LAUGHABLE

Jerry and Hope are not divorced. It was filed in Dec. 2011 but it has not been granted. The first divorce was dismissed by Jerry and the grandparents received visitation as their request for guardianship of the eldest child was denied and they sought visitation rights. I had read earlier that the grandparents were allegedly denied visitation- and of that is so- that is sad and its also sad that they had the ability to file a contempt to enforce their visits but it appears that they never did that either. So if true that they were denied- both sides are wrong for not making sure the children's relationship with both sides continued.(I say that NOT knowing the background of the family in depth; therefore not agreeing or condoning the actions of either side)

Oklahoma is a NO FAULT divorce state. Parties only have to allege incompatibility. They do not have to plea desertion, abandonment, adultery, etc. They only have to claim that the legitimate aims of the marriage are no longer there and parties aren't compatible....

I knew that, but Oklahoma is one state that ALLOWS you to make those kind of claims in a divorce suit. Infidelity, etc. Most judges prefer NOT to hear it and lawyers, knowing the judges preferences, will normally avoid those kind of topics. It's just odd that since he claims she just RAN OFF, that he wouldn't use ABANDONMENT as a reason. He certainly didn't want to file asking that she be declared legally dead. The sad part is, since they were still married at the time of her diappearance, he is the ONLY person, as her immediate next of kind, who could ask the state to issue a death certificate. That would have opened up a whole new issue for him. The GRANDPARENTS and family members have not faired this stormy weather in their lives and live in another state. They did not have the money to continue hiring attorneys to file for contempt charges. If I remember correctly, Judge Tony Benson did the custody hearing on the children and he was notorious for not doing HOME STUDIES, APPOINTING THE CHILDREN A GUARDIAN Ad Lietem who would have requested that all parties also undergo a psych evaluation prior to custody being granted. It's a sad situation. No matter what, the children DO NOT need to remain strangers to their mother's family. Allow them to make those decisions later in life, as they mature. There is no reason to deprive children from Grand parents, and other family. I keep seeing supporters of Mr. Meek say that this isn't good for the children. He should have thought about that before he, According to the State of Oklahoma, committed 1st degree premeditated murder.

I didn't know it was my day to answer your questions. The way it works is, I make the true statements and you keep stirring the pot of what you believe up. Your rambling on about who's on first and what's on second solves nothing. You think those kids love Jerry? Hell yes the do, and three of them have access to the Internet. You should be so proud of what your investigative work has proven or not. I'm sure those poor children are proud of you. Tiffany was a blessing to Jerry. Who gives a flip if they have a piece of paper from the arm pit of America. In the end, I will be his friend innocent or guilty. I will surely not base that on your opinion. If you figure out who's on first, see if that has anything to do with finding Hope.
