Murdered Girl Scouts remembered
Forty years ago this week, a camp counselor discovered the bodies of three murdered Girl Scouts at Camp Scott near Locust Grove.
Today, the case is still open. The families of Doris Denise Milner, 10; Michele Guse, 9; and Lori Lee Farmer, 8, and continue to hope for justice.
The Oklahoman's anniversary piece on the case notes that more DNA testing is underway.
On June 12, 1977, nearly 140 Girl Scouts arrived at Camp Scott, a sprawling, heavily wooded property southeast of Locust Grove in northeast Oklahoma. The Magic Empire Council of Girl Scouts had owned the camp since 1928; a week of beloved traditions awaited the children.
No one could have anticipated the horror that instead would befall three young campers.
The Tulsa World also reported on the case this week with a six-part narrative series it spent a year producing that explores the wider impact of the crimes on the families and community.
