Camp Scott in Locust Grove, Oklahoma had been a camp for Girl Scouts since 1928. In June 1977, the camp welcomed over 130 Girl Scouts and Brownies for its first two-week session. Tragedy struck when counselors discovered that three young girls from tent #8 had been brutally murdered.

Join Mike and Morf as they discuss the tragedy that has become known as the Oklahoma Girl Scout murders. Lori Farmer, Denise Milner, and Heather Guse had all met for the first time when they were assigned to tent #8 at Camp Scott. The morning after they arrived, all three little girls were found dead. Investigators zeroed in on a man named Gene Leroy Hart but proving his guilt would prove to be a tough task. Could modern-day DNA techniques help solve this baffling mystery?
