OSBI Agents Make Arrest in 10-Year-Old Homicide Case

The OSBI has made an arrest in a 10-year-old case involving a missing McCurtain County woman. Hope Meek, 25, was reported missing by her husband in late February 2002 numerous days after he last saw her. OSBI was involved early in this case and has gathered ample circumstantial evidence to show that Hope is deceased and that she died February 21, 2002, after a fight with her husband at their home.

This morning OSBI agents arrested Jerry Meek (d.o.b. 5/26/1973), Hope’s husband, at the International Paper Company in Valliant where he works. He was booked into the McCurtain County Jail on one count of first degree murder. His bond has been set at $250,000.

This arrest was made possible by a new District Attorney willing to prosecute a case without the victim’s body and the passage of time to prove Hope is deceased.
