CRIME STOPPERS ALERT: Paula Bogle found stabbed to death in west Tulsa home near Christmas in 2010

TULSA - It was only a week before Christmas, the season of giving, when a woman known for her giving spirit was stabbed to death.

"She was stabbed in the chest and the neck," said Jill Roberson of the Tulsa Police Department's Crime Stoppers unit.

Someone killed 65-year-old Paula Bogle in her west Tulsa home on that December night in 2010.

Neighbors were left in shock.

"I've only talked with her a couple of times," said neighbor Dustan Evans. "But she didn't have a problem with anybody. She was a really nice lady."

A nice lady who met a terrible fate.

Paula's boyfriend found her lifeless body in her favorite rocking chair.

But there were no signs that anyone forced their way in, leading police to believe she trusted her killer.

"Paula was a very generous individual and we initially thought that maybe someone was taking advantage of her possibly," said Roberson.

Whoever killed her also took her car, which the killer may have been familiar with.

"She was that kind of person to lend money or give rides to individuals," said Roberson.

The next day police found Paula's car at a fast food restaurant next to Promenade Mall in midtown Tulsa, but there were no signs of any suspects.

"If citizens come forward and give us whatever information they may know than that only helps detectives in their investigation," said Roberson.

Police believe someone out there has the answer that could finally bring Paula's family and friends some peace.

"Extremely important. We would like to know," said Evans. "Was it random? Was it someone she knew? We want to know what happened and why? It's very important."

If you have any information, call Crime Stoppers at 918-596-COPS. You can remain anonymous. Crime Stoppers does not want your name, just your information!

Tips could result in a reward of up to $1,500.
