    This is exciting, I hope the new testing reveals the person/people responsible. I'm curious if the boyfriend's uncle's DNA test results are in yet, or if that is what they were referring to (in the link in the post above mine).

    Parents, TCSO still searching for answers on 20th anniversary of Dena Dean murder

    This Wednesday, June 6 marks the 20th anniversary of the unsolved murder of 16-year-old Dena Dean, and the Dean Family will commemorate the anniversary by holding a vigil.

    In 1998, Dena Dean never made it home after meeting with friends. They eventually found her abandoned car in the parking lot of the Towne West Shopping Center.

    Detectives found her body in a field, a week later, but her killer was never found.

    'It's on our shoulders:' Dena Dean cold-case investigators optimistic with new witnesses, search warrants, DNA tests

    Diana Dean has fallen into stretches where she didn't believe justice for her daughter would materialize. But in the past year she has developed more hope than ever for a resolution — "a new feeling," she describes it — with significant strides made in the cold case.

    “On the progress at this point, I think it’s going pretty good," Dean said Tuesday, a day before the 20th anniversary of her daughter's death. “They’ve gotten some search warrants and some DNA testing, and they’re still doing some testing. I think it’s headed in the right direction."

    Family of Dena Dean meets with Tulsa County District Attorney's Office

    Family members of Dena Dean met Thursday with personnel from the Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office, a possible sign that authorities — shortly after the 20th anniversary of Dean’s death — are close to having a case filed against the teenager’s suspected killer.

    Dean’s mother, Diana Dean, said the “meet-and-greet” she had in the afternoon with a prosecutor and an advocate was the first of its kind since she found out about her daughter’s death. Dean’s family holds a vigil annually, which they’ve said has helped her name stay in the public consciousness.

    “It kind of came as a shock to me,” she told the Tulsa World of the encounter. “It’s been 20 years, and we’ve never talked to anybody like that or been asked to come for a meeting. It gives me hope that we’re moving in the right direction.”

    "ID's "Killer Unknown" Chronicles Active Investigations of Tulsa County Cold Case Task Force Working to Crack Unsolved Murder Cases Across Oklahoma

    [via press release from Investigation Discovery]
    ID'S "KILLER UNKNOWN" CHRONICLES ACTIVE INVESTIGATIONS OF TULSA COUNTY COLD CASE TASK FORCE WORKING TO CRACK UNSOLVED MURDER CASES ACROSS OKLAHOMA

    -- Premiering Saturday, November 24 on Investigation Discovery --

    (Silver Spring, Md.) - What happens when some of the finest investigators in the country come out of retirement to put their collective talents and years of experience towards the most notorious cold case murders in the area they call home? Investigation Discovery's (ID) all-new series, KILLER UNKNOWN follows an active investigation in real time, as the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office (TCSO) Cold Case Task Force cracks open the 31 unsolved cases of Tulsa County, starting with two of its most terrifying: the 1973 murder of 38-year-old Veda Woodson, and the 1998 murder of 16-year-old Dena Ann Dean. Both unsolved cases continue to haunt the Tulsa community, and now the TCSO Cold Case Task Force is determined to find justice for the victims. From production company Lucky 8, the six-part series, KILLER UNKNOWN, premieres Saturday, November 24 at 10/9c, only on ID.

    Each episode of KILLER UNKNOWN chronicles the TCSO Cold Case Task Force as they re-examine the Woodson and Dean cases with fresh eyes, speaking with loved ones and reviewing evidence through modern technology in hopes of generating new leads for the cases.

    Created in June 2016, the TCSO Cold Case Task Force is comprised of seasoned homicide detectives and specialized experts who volunteer their time and expertise to reviewing unsolved cases from different perspectives. Led by retired Tulsa police sergeant Mike Huff, the task force focuses its resources on cases with the highest probability of being solved with fresh new leads and modern forensic technologies. The task force is currently examining 31 cases across Tulsa County, with the ultimate goal of finding answers and justice for victims and their families.

    About Dena Ann Dean

    On June 6, 1998, 16-year-old Dena Dean was working at her after-school job at Arby's in Tulsa, OK. After work, Dena asked her parents, Larry and Diana, if she could go to local grocery store Marvin's Food Warehouse to see her best friend, as well as her boyfriend. With her parent's permission, Dena left her shift and drove to Marvin's - but was never heard from again. When Dena failed to return home after curfew, her parents became uneasy; that uneasiness turned to panic when they received a call from a friend who found Dena's car. A manhunt was launched, and six days later, Dena's body was found at a local dump site where kids would often hang out - it was too decomposed to determine a specific cause of death. Now, 20 years later, the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office has several new leads - but can they finally solve this case for good?"

    I had high hopes that we would see progress on these cases. I would love to see justice for both the Woodson's and the Dean's, my prayers are with the families.
