Sheriff's Cold Case Investigators seek leads in a 14-year-old murder

Jun 6, 2012

Teenager Dena Dean disappeared from Town West Shopping Center 14 years ago. The murder case is unsolved to this day. On the anniversary of her death, the Tulsa Sheriff’s Cold Case Command Post is set-up in the shopping center parking lot. It’s an annual event seeking tips on Dean’s murder or any other crimes still under investigation. Dean’s father Larry hasn’t given up hope the case will be resolved. He says while he believes there will be justice for his daughter some day, there will never be ‘closure’ for him since he will never have his daughter back.

Anyone who might have information to help solve the Dena Dean murder or any other cold case is asked to call the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office.
