What a sad story, I sure hope there are witnesses that will come forward and help bring the killer to justice. I pray that God will speak to them and help them to do the right thing for closure for this family.

Authorities know who killed her. They just can't prove it. His "holier-than-thou" church-going family closed ranks around him to protect him. I hope new DNA tests and/or other technologies will bring him to justice.

If anyone knows any details I pray they step forward. You can find a way to remain anonymous. You do not have to live with the guilt of knowing forever, but her family's pain will be forever.

I remember hearing it was the boyfriend when it happened. He fled to California days after her body was found then the police brought him back. I wonder where he is now.

He never was in Cali. He is now married and has a baby. Father still denies everything. Police need the new DNA evidence... he has a cousin in Texas that knows the truth...

To knowsalil.... and anyone else who may have information regarding this case. The Tulsa County Sheriff's Office would like to hear from you. We prefer "in person" but, if you wish to remain anonymous, call from a pay phone. Contact the Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Unit at the Faulkner Building and ask to speak to a Cold Case homicide detective. Your piece of information could help close the case and give some relief to the family.

Dena's family gets the truth and everyone that knows it comes forward to reveal the truth to the Deans and the law. Whether or not there is forgiveness or redemption there must be truth first. Who did this to this young lady should be a man and speak the truth even if it means begging for forgiveness. What if it was his child that was killed? Wouldn't he want the same? If the man who killed her was a man concerned about following God then he should even more so be bound to speak the truth. Same goes for a person who knows who was responsible for her death - they should speak the truth and honor God. The truth is God's gift of peace and healing. It is a further act of sin to withhold the truth from Dena's family. God's punishment to those who withhold the truth will be far greater in the long run than the law of the land. It is so.

You are absolutely right. The ENTIRE church closed ranks around him to protect him.

They apparently dont know who did it because here it is 15 years later and they are going after a different man. I hope they find who did it.
