At least one person has been arrested in connection to the 21 year-old cold case disappearances of three people in Oklahoma.

The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation held a news conference this morning to confirm that three sets of human remains were discovered on property that was formerly owned by a former family member of one of the missing people.

While Wendy Camp was married to Chad Noe she became very ill with Multiple Sclerosis and had to be hospitalized. During that time, custody of their four year-old child, Jonathon Noe was awarded to Chad. 



This is either Cynthia or Jonathan with Chad Noe


Camp's former mother-in-law Beverly Sue Prewitt-Noe picked 23 year-old Wendy Laraine Camp, her six year-old daughter Cynthia Britto, and Camp's 22 year-old sister-in-law Lisa Renee Kregear up about 11:30 a.m. on May 29, 1992 and brought them back to Shamrock for a pre-arranged visit with the little boy.

Camp called her husband, Leon, from a gas station in Shamrock when they arrived about 1:40 p.m. and then again about 4:40 p.m. from the same phone at the service station the original call came from and told him the visit went well and, they were on their way back to Oklahoma City.

According to court documents, Beverly Prewitt-Noe told investigators that Chad came to the service station with Jonathon and "picked up Wendy, Cynthia and Lisa and took them back to his residence." 

Beverly Noe told OSBI Agent Jackie Johnson that she, her mother Ida Prewitt and Jonathon followed them in her car.  According to Noe, Wendy asked that he she and Ida leave so she could visit with her son and come back about 4:30 p.m. to pick them up.

Noe told Johnson she dropped the three off at a Wal-Mart in Chandler following a disagreement over custody issues with Camp.  "Beverly said they began the trip back to Oklahoma City, but Ida Prewitt didn't want to listen to Wendy anymore and asked to be taken home." 

Beverly said after she took her mother home and proceeded toward Oklahoma City, "Wendy kept making nasty remarks and asking stupid questions" so she dropped them off at a Wal-Mart near Chandler about 6:00 p.m.  Authorities now believe that is a lie.

Sources close to the investigation said movement on the case started to simmer following the death of 82 year-old Ida Prewitt, in 2011.

A few months ago authorities received a tip that the three would be found buried on land near Jennings that had been owned by Beverly Noe's brother, Grover Junior Prewitt, when the three went missing.  He later sold that property for $1.00, according to sources close to the case.

According to the probable cause affidavit, On March 28, 2013, Grover Prewitt told investigators that he owned 40 acres of land near Jennings and he sold five of those acres to his mother, Ida Prewitt.

Ida Prewitt moved a trailer onto the property and Beverly Noe  instructed him hire a backhoe operator to dig a hole for a septic system next to the trailer.  "Grover said the hole for the septic tank sat empty for a while but then all of a sudden, after the females went missing, Ida had Grover call the backhoe driver to fill in the hole."  Grover Prewitt said he never looked in the hole "because he was scared of what he would see," and he believed his mother and sister had killed Camp, Britto and Kregear.

 "Grover showed investigators where Ida had the hole dug for the septic tank and where he thought the females were buried."  During an interview with Grover Prewitt on April 2, 2013, he grabbed the hand of an investigator for the District Attorney and told him "he really needed to look in that hole he had showed him."

On April 15th authorities began digging on that land.  On April 16th, the remains of three people, who were still wearing clothing similar to what the three were wearing when they disappeared, were discovered under about eight feet of dirt.  Also recovered was a pink backpack with the name Cynthia Britto written on it and a black purse with a medical card issued to Wendy Camp.

When Grover Prewitt was interviewed again on April 22nd, he told authorities that his mother asked him to come out and sprinkle black pepper where the hole had been dug.  "He told her he thought it was damn strange and she said it would deter [cadaver] dog scents."  He said he also remembered his mother saying she "took care of those three people," but he couldn't remember when she said it, and what prompted the statement.

Court records indicate that Ida Prewitt never moved into the trailer and sold the property in June of 2000.  The current owners of the property consented to the search.

On April 24th, Grover Prewitt agreed to wear a wire in an attempt to gain evidence to help OSBI Agents. With a microphone and digital audio recorder tape to his chest he went to visit his sister and "repeatedly interrupted Beverly and told her he did not know anything, effectively preventing her from making any further statements."

Grover Prewitt again met with OSBI Agents on April 26th and again agreed to wear a wire for them, according to the affidavit.

This time Agents wanted Prewitt to get his sister Beverly, and another sister Deborah Johnson, who authorities learned lived on his property when the trio went missing, to talk about the murder of John Rausin as well as the Camp, Britto and Kregear homicides.

On June 12, 1980, a neighbor found found sixty three year-old John Elmer Rausin dead near a car in the garage of his home in Depew, Oklahoma.  Rausin, who was attacked as he was leaving for work, was shot twice and stabbed 10 times.  His throat had also been slit.

In May of 1983, Ida Prewitt and her daughter, Deborah Rausin (now Johnson,) were arrested and charged with first-degree murder for John Rausin's murder.  

"Grover was told multiple times to let Deborah and Beverly talk and to not interrupt them."  He was also told not to deny involvement.  

After being fitted with the wire, Grover Prewitt went to Johnson's home in Bristow.  After being let in, he asked Johnson, "Where's Beverly?  I saw a whole bunch of OSBI cop cars sitting out in front of her house."  

While Deborah Johnson was speaking with Beverly, authorities could hear tape ripping and brushing up against the audio recorder.  Johnson handed the phone to Prewitt and when he hung up she asked, "What did she say?"  Prewitt replied, "Thanks for the warning." 

According to court documents, the microphone is again tampered with before Prewitt says, "You know they came from my house and took all my guns and shit."  When Johnson asked why, he said he didn't know, but they were there for a few hours "bugging the hell out of me 'cause it's my property."

Prewitt again brought up Rausin.  "They keep bringing up John, you know."  Johnson then shouted at Prewitt, "You don't know no more than I do, so what."  Then Grover told her they kept asking about Rausin. "Don't you think if we'd know'd something they would have arrested us a hell of a long time ago."

Johnson then reminded Prewitt that cops had come to Cleveland, where the two had lived previously, to talk to him about Rausin.  "They were just talking to me....that's when I found out those people were missing."  Johnson then asked Prewitt to have a look at her tea room.

Prewitt asked Johnson, "So they brought up John to you?"  Johnson replied, "Yup, back then."

The pair decided to go to Beverly Noe's house and along the way continued to talk about Rausin and "those three people."

Johnson said, "Two of them I hadn't seen and one I hadn't said a whole sentence to.  She had come over a couple of times on the pretense of seeing Jonathan and then she followed Chad around.  She never came to see Jonathon really, she just come to follow Chad around."  Prewitt told Johnson he had never met any of them and "wouldn't know the people if I was standing  right next to them." 

On the way to Noe's house they encountered her on a roadway and went back to her house.  Beverly was looking for Jonathon, but couldn't find him.  "He was three years-old and grandma never told him anything. She couldn't keep her mouth shut.  She's ruined enough lives." 

As Grover was leaving, Johnson asked Beverly Noe if she would like her to stay, "You might as well.  That's in case for when they get me when they bring Jonathon back." 

On his way out the door Beverly asksed her brother, "You got your tail hanging out for something?"  When Prewitt got back in his vehicle he realized he'd been had.  "Son of a bitch, I got wires hanging out."

When Prewitt arrived at a predetermined location to meet with OSBI Agents they asked him "How did that come untapped, all of it's been untapped."  Prewitt said he had no idea.

According to court records, Agents noted that they had never encountered a problem like that before with undercover equipment.

Grover Junior Prewitt Jr., of Bristow, was charged with accessory after the fact in first-degree murder immediately following the news conference to discuss the findings this morning.

Beverly Noe says she didn't have anything to do with the deaths of Camp, Britto and Kregear and doesn't believe her brother does either. "It was not me and if it were my mother, I don't know....she's dead." 


Beverly Noe said she doesn't have it in her to kill a child, and she doesn't think her brother had anything to do with the murders.

"I had nothing to do with it," Noe told newson6.com. "That's what gets me, is I had nothing to do with it, and now they may take me away from my kid."  That kid she is referring to is Wendy Camp's son Jonathan, who is now in his mid-twenties. 

Noe, 66, and her mother, Ida, were sentenced in 2007 to a year in prison for felony arson and conspiracy.  Creek County court records show that the women were convicted in 2006 of intentionally sparking a blaze at their home in order to bilk their insurance company for over $83,000.

Prewitt, who died of esophageal cancer, was serving a suspended sentence at the time of her death.  Online records say Beverly spent about 5 months behind bars before being paroled.  She is on probation until 2017

Creek County District Attorney Max Cook says he expects more charges to be filed in connection with the three homicides.

The three sets of remains have been sent to the University of North Texas for positive identification through DNA testing.  Camp's sister, Aisha Hashmi, has provided a DNA sample to assist in the investigation. However, the OSBI is confident the remains belong to Camp, Britto and Kregear and is now working the case as a triple homicide.

In a news release the OSBI says, "The passage of 21 years gave the tipster confidence to come forward to help solve the disappearance of the three victims.  We hope this same passage of time and knowledge of the victims’ murders will encourage others to also come forward."

The OSBI is offering up to a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person/s involved in the murders of Camp, Britto, and Kregear. 

If you have any information, that can help investigators call the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.

Camp, Britto and Kregear vanished 10 days before Sherrill Levitt, Suzie Streeter and Stacy McCall disappeared from Springfield, Missouri. 

To date, there has been no resolution in the case of Springfield's Three Missing Women.

UPDATE- 08-20-13:

The preliminary hearing for Grover Prewitt was postponed yesterday and rescheduled for September 27th.


Prewitt's defense attorney, Mike Jones, welcomed the delay.
“The longer the case drags out, the better for my client,” Jones said. “If they had a preliminary hearing (today) they would not meet the burden of proof.

UPDATE 10-04-13:

Grover Prewitt's preliminary hearing has been rescheduled for October 25th.

UPDATE 10-29-13:

Prewitt's preliminary hearing has been rescheduled.....AGAIN.  He is due back in court on December 5th.

That is a picture of cynthia and chad not jonathon. Aisha said so earlier when she posted the picture.

The apparent motive to keep custody of Jonathon is unbelievable. How could any parent or grandparent kill another child? I am glad though that Aisha and her family will have some kind of closure and that justice for Wendy, Cynthia, and Lisa will be done.

What a bizarre family. Absolutely tragic. :( I'm curious what the son, Jonathan, makes of all of this. So very sad to have lost your mother, sister and aunt only to grow up and find out it was your grandmother and your other aunt. I can NOT imagine.

Aisha,

I have just as much right as anyone else to report what is happening in this case.

I reported what was in the probable cause statement and other documents I've obtained.

You say you told me this and that, but in reality, other news outlets in Oklahoma reported what was happening with the dig before I did and the real reason you're upset is because you didn't get to break the news on the FB forum.

I don't know who is misleading you about me making web pages and other FB pages about this case, but you've been misinformed.

As far as working on your case, I spent numerous hours working on your case. Not just on the press release for the 15th anniversary...ask Jessica Brown at the OSBI and I'm sure she'll confirm all my calls.

A month ago you were praising Sandy and I for our help.

I did contact you to see if you needed a copy of the charging document. My bad, I wanted to MAKE sure you had one.

I know you and your family are grieving, but if you continue to flame me on any websites or in any press interviews that are published I will consult an attorney.

Kathee Baird said...

Aisha,

FYI, the photo you refer to was found here: http://www.unsolved.com/ajaxfiles/mis_missing_in_laws.htm

It is in the public domain. I have NOT contacted ANY of your family members. Another LIE on your part.

One should probably avail himself or herself of the "probable cause affidavit." Much of this information is to be found there.

That old cunt who luckily is dead and Beverly were the ones who killed the three of them, and Chad also knew about it, and so did the whole family. They spoke about it all the time and Ida even bragged about it. We all heard that and knew that. Ida was the one who kept everyone quiet. She was an evil woman who killed before and even burned down the house to get insurance money. I am glad she was killed by cancer, she deserved that miserable death given she killed those three in 1992. And Beverly is a liar and is totally involved and her time will come as will the rest of the family members.

Beverly was arrested today.

Good god, wtf is going on in Oklahoma???
All appear to have been suspects for years bragging about it, yet NO evidence or at least circumstantial evidence to charge these morons? If these bafoons can get away blatant homicide, we are all doomed!

El Jeran said...

I knew the second I saw this on Unsolved Mysteries that the nasty ass white trash Prewitt family did this. They murdered a child. WOW. The c.u.n.t. cancer ridden grandmother already accused the stepfather of molestation, no way is she innocent of the murders. I dont know what it is about bitter nasty old farts who cant let biological parents see their own children. Cancer death not good enough for her. so unfortunate she is alive and rotting in prison.
