Fort Campbell Soldiers Support Veteran in Murder of Wife
Bob and Nancy Strait
FORT CAMPBELL, Tenn.- A
murder in Tulsa Oklahoma is gaining the attention of Fort Campbell soldiers.
Last month 85-year-old
Nancy Strait was raped and then beaten to death during a home invasion. Her
husband Bob Strait was also beaten, but survived. Police have one suspect in
custody. Strait is a 101st Airborne veteran who served during World War II. Now
this family is hoping his fellow Screaming Eagles can help out by putting
pressure on Tulsa's Mayor to assign a task force to Strait's case.
Because the beating death
happened around the same time as a racially motivated shooting spree, the family
believes resources have been tied up.
"Despite the hype of
the last case, they have not been forgotten. We are in constant contact with
the family, assuring them and the general public, anyone who has a loved one as
a victim of crime, we have not forgotten you," said Vic Regalado, Tulsa
The 101st Airborne
Association is also taking donations for the Strait family.
