GRAPHIC: OSBI finds bodies in 21-year-old cold case
JENNINGS, Okla. - The OSBI has cracked a 21-year-old cold case in Creek County.
Thursday the OSBI announced their bodies have been found Thursday.
One person has been arrested and more arrests are possible.

Officials said they started digging April 15 and by the next day, they began to recover the remains of the three victims buried under eight feet of dirt.

“I’m just glad they were found and it’ll be over,” Jonathan Noe said.
Jonathan’s mother, Wendy Camp, his sister, Cynthia Britto, and Lisa Kregear all vanished without a trace from a parking lot in Chandler back in 1992.
“I’m shocked they found ‘em,” Beverly Noe said. “I mean, it’s been 20 something years.”
Prosecutors said Beverly Noe drove the victims to the parking lot.
It’s an Atwoods now but used to be a Walmart.
“They say I’m the last to see ‘em but I honest-to-God dropped ‘em off,” she said. “That’s why I’m not guilty of anything.”
The disappearance in 1992 sparked a statewide search.
Beverly maintains she had nothing to do with the deaths.
“I never hurt nobody,” she said. “I took ‘em to the Walmart. I’ll say that to my dying days.”
Beverly’s brother, 60-year-old Grover Prewitt, led prosecutors to the bodies.
He’s been charged with accessory to murder.
Grover allegedly agreed with OSBI to wear a wire at Beverly’s sister’s house to get the pair to talk about the killings.
According to court records, “Grover thought his mother, Ida, and sister, Beverly, killed the females.”
He also told investigators, “They really needed to look in that hole.”
“There is no way I killed nobody,” Noe said. “I don’t know how I can get everyone to understand I’m not guilty of anything.”
Prewitt’s mother, Ida, also lived on the land where the bodies were found; she passed away in 2011.
Because the case is ongoing, prosecutors are still encouraging anyone with information on the case to come forward.
The OSBI is offering up to a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person involved in the murders of Camp, Britto and Kregear.
If anyone has information, you can call the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.
