PRYOR, Okla. (AP) – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says evidence from the slayings of three Girl Scouts in eastern Oklahoma more than 30 years ago is undergoing new testing.

The OSBI says its Cold Case Unit began reviewing the case three years ago and identified evidence that may reveal clues and those items were sent to a private lab for tests the OSBI is unable to perform.

The specific items submitted were not revealed.

The bodies of 8-year-old Lori Lee Farmer; 9-year-old Michel Guse; and 10-year-old Doris Denise Milner were found June 13th, 1977 at Camp Scott near Locust Grove after they were abducted from their tent during the night.

Prison escapee Gene Leroy Hart was charged with murder and rape in the case, but was acquitted and later died in prison.
