A prominent small-business leader was beaten and shot in the head before being found nude wearing only a wedding ring and floating face up in an Oklahoma City lake last year, according to a medical examiner's report obtained Monday. Denice Stice, 48, was found dead Nov. 27, 2007, on the south side of Lake Overholser. Stice worked with small businesses at Tinker Air Force Base. Stice had been shot one time in the left side of her head and had several cuts and bruises on her face and body indicating she was beaten before death, the report states. She also had a badly fractured tooth. Police later found Stice's car in a parking lot of an apartment complex (Bali Apartments) near NW 10 and N Tela Drive, about 3 miles from where she was dumped. Police have not said what they found in the car. If you have any information about this homicide, please call Oklahoma City Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300. Homicide Tip Line 405-297-1200.
