TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa County Sheriff's deputies are hoping someone will give them the tip they need to solve a 15-year-old murder mystery.

In June 1998, Dena Dean of Tulsa asked her mother if she could meet a boy.

Five days later, Dean's body was found just north of the Town West Shopping Center in west Tulsa.

Deputies have set up their cold case mobile command post in front of the Family Fellowship Church in the shopping center near 61st and 49th West Avenue. It will be open 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

No one has been arrested in connection with her murder and deputies along with Dean's parents believe someone knows what happened.  They hope they'll get a tip that will lead to an arrest and conviction.

Dena Dean would have turned 31-years-old this month.

The sheriff's office has also set up a special tip line in reference to this case at 918-596-8681.
