OSBI Says Girl Scout Murder Case Remains Open

It was forty years ago today, June 13, 1977, that three girl scouts were found sexually assaulted and murdered at Camp Scott near Locust Grove. The OSBI says the case remains open and that in 40 years of forensic testing and running leads, no evidence has surfaced pointing to any suspect other than Gene Leroy Hart, who was acquitted of the murders but then died of a heart attack in prison serving time for kidnapping and raping two pregnant women. The OSBI says Mayes County Sheriff Mike Reed raised private donations to pay for expensive DNA testing. The results are not yet available.
