Oklahoma man’s lawsuit seeks insurance benefits.

BY JOHNNY JOHNSON Published: Sun, March 28, 2010 Twenty-eight months after a Tinker Air Force Base civilian official was killed, the woman’s husband has filed a $1.25 million lawsuit seeking her life insurance and retirement benefits, court documents show. In the federal lawsuit filed March 2 in Oklahoma City, Gerald Don Stice, 45, a convicted sex offender, claims that his wife, Denise Stice, died in an apparent homicide and that he was the "rightful beneficiary to any and all benefits” from the life insurance policy. The office of the Federal Employees’ Group Life Insurance program refuses to release the benefits without proof that he was not involved in her death, the lawsuit states. The lawsuit says the husband, more commonly known as Don Stice, has never been named as a suspect or otherwise implicated in the death of his wife. Oklahoma City Police Master Sgt. Gary Knight said neither Don Stice nor anyone else has been eliminated as a suspect in Denise Stice’s death, but the hu

The Crisis of Cold Cases

 The murder of Alfred L. Barnes, an employee of Bethlehem Steel, happened on October 18, 1968, in Monroe County, Pennsylvania. Someone shot Mr. Barnes three times in the head, dumped him in a desolate pasture and stole his late-model Thunderbird. Some 42 years later, the crime remained unsolved. Then, in August 2010, the victim's nephew, Richard Barnes, contacted police and asked them to try again to find who killed his uncle. Investigators faced a tall task trying to solve such a "cold" case—especially since the murder occurred before DNA analysis was widely available. Then-Pennsylvania State Trooper Tom McAndrew, a detective who at the time had more than 10 years of experience in solving homicides, was part of the cold case team that pulled the files out of storage, studied them and began interviewing people associated with the case. Those interviews eventually led to a suspect in Texas, who admitted he had taken the victim to a remote place, and robbed and killed him.

Denise F. Nee Tucker Meeks Stice, December 7, 1958 - November 27, 2007.

Denise was director of the Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization at the Air Logistics Center at Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma, at the time of her death.  She received several performance awards, which include a National Security Personnel System Performance award in January 2007. She had been a dedicated civil servant since 1983.  Civilian Department of Defense employees are an integral part of our nation's defense. As a former civil servant at Tinker, I am grateful for her hard work and dedication. Over the past few months, I have received several tips regarding Denise's murder. Without delay, I provided this information to investigators. I believe that our efforts to refresh the public's memory about the case are paying off. However, we can't let up. We must keep driving forward. To the folks that were involved in this heinous crime, the pieces of the puzzle are slowly coming together.  To Denise's family, you are in my prayers. Hold on to those

Death remains mystery

  Published: February 2, 2008 The investigation into the November death of a prominent small-business leader at Tinker Air Force Base is ongoing, a police spokesman said. Police will not say whether they have any suspects, nor will they say whether anybody has been ruled out as a suspect in the shooting death of 48-year-old Denise Stice. Her body was found Nov. 27. "It is still an active investigation,” police Capt. Steve McCool said. "It is currently still in the hands of the investigators, and due to the fact that it is an ongoing investigation, we cannot disclose whether or not we have developed a suspect.” McCool would not call the case "cold” because detectives have not exhausted all leads, he said. After the shooting, police searched Stice's residence, where she lived with her husband, Don Stice, police said. Cleveland County property records show Denise Stice was the sole owner of the home, 12316 Crystal Gardens Drive There were no 911 calls to her home befor

November 27, 2018, marks the 11th anniversary of the tragic death of Denise Stice.

Shortly after Denise was killed, I put up a blog and Facebook page. I intended to keep the case in the public eye and hopefully generate tips. I also went after Don Stice. I posted his criminal record along with my theories. My opinion of Don Stice and his involvement in this despicable crime has not changed. However, it doesn't matter what I think. Law Enforcement cannot act on supposition. This time around I took things in a different direction. I truly hope the current Facebook page and blog will refresh the public's memory about the case and generate a usable tip. From 1983-2004 I was employed by a large Oklahoma City-based corporation. In the first part of my career in 1983-1991, I was a member of the corporate security department. My supervisors and several co-workers were retired Oklahoma City Police Officers. We have one of the best Police Departments in the nation. There is no doubt in my mind that they have done their very best to solve this case. They care deeply abo

2007 beating death of Oklahoma woman remains a mystery.

Published: Thu, November 27, 2008. For the family of Denise Stice, Thanksgiving prayers will contain a plea that her killer is found.  Stice’s family is gathering today at her sister’s home in San Antonio, Texas, to celebrate the holiday and mark the one-year anniversary of Stice’s death. Her beaten body was found Nov. 27, 2007, in Lake Overholser. She was shot once in the head. No arrest has been made. Tina Thompson is hopeful there will be justice for her sister and that someone will come forward with information to help police solve the crime. "She was an innocent, good person that never hurt anyone,” Thompson said. "Losing her is hard, but not knowing why she was killed is torture.” Oklahoma City police Sgt. Mike Veasey said he’s looking for witnesses that may have seen Stice after 6 p.m. Nov. 26, 2007, along with the identity of a man spotted with her car. Before her disappearance, Stice had been at the Sheraton Hotel in Midwest City visiting a friend. She left the hotel
