Angie Denise Tucker, mother of 2 children, was in an on again, off again relationship with Allen Shields, who was quickly named a suspect or person of interest in her disappearance.
On October 6, 2007, Tucker filed rape charges against Shields, and he was arrested on those charges, but posted bond the same day, and the charges were declined due to lack of evidence, according to the prosecuting attorney. On October 8 Tucker was granted an order of protection against Shields, but by November 3, Angie Tucker vanished.
According to her testimony, Shields broke into her home and forced her to have sex. She claimed he had tried to harm her, harassed and stalked her. Early on in the investigation it was stated that there was evidence with which to produce a time line, also confirming to investigators that she was a victim of foul play. Shields continued to deny any knowledge of where she was or what happened to her.
When Angie Tucker failed to show up for her job at OSU Medical center, her employers and family filed a missing persons report with police. Immediately they started passing out flyers with her information, the only thing they knew to do. Many sources have said that it was totally out of her character to not have contact with her two children, that she would definitely not leave them behind. Angie was know to be a responsible and dependable person who would always let family members know where she was going, she was outgoing and easily made friends. She did not own a vehicle at the time she went missing.
In 2010, Allen Shields was again arrested, this time for several charges stemming from another late night break-in to the home of an ex-girlfriend. Just like Angie Tucker, the woman filed for an order of protection because of an incident where he choked her to the point of passing out, just a short time before Shields broke into her home with what authorities say was a "murder kit" consisting of a handgun, pepper spray, a particulate mask, pepper spray-decontamination wipes, handcuffs and medications that could be used to promote sleep, an arrest report shows. He clearly had plans to do harm to her and her 9 year old daughter, who possibly saved them both by locking herself in the bathroom and dialing 911 for help. Responding officers broke down the door and found Shields in the home.
On the morning of Sept. 4, 2008, a gunman wearing sunglasses and a hooded shirt pulled up over his head entered Retail Fuels Marketing, 3158 S. 108th East Ave., and quickly walked past several employees to the office of the company's owner, Neal Sweeney.The defendant that committed suicide on April 5, 2011, was Allen Shields "who pleaded guilty to the murder conspiracy and struck a deal with prosecutors to testify against the alleged co-conspirators. Prosecutors alleged that Shields helped facilitate payment for the killing. Shields, 34, was found dead Tuesday morning, after reportedly shooting himself during a police standoff that involved an 11-year-old girl as a hostage."
Without saying anything, the gunman shot Sweeney in the head.
Sweeney, a beloved father and former University of Tulsa football player, died the next day.
Police say the resulting investigation unraveled a murder-for-hire plot that led to charges against five accused conspirators. One defendant has since committed suicide, and four men face trial in the Sweeney slaying.
Angie Denise Tucker is still missing, her two children are now 17 and 15 and being cared for by her family.
