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 precious memories of Denise. Together, we will win this fight for justice.
