GRAPHIC: Bodies found in 21-year-old Oklahoma cold case
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation believe they have cracked a 21-year-old cold case in a county near Tulsa.
23-year-old Wendy Camp, her 6-year-old daughter Cynthia Britto, and 24-year-old friend Lisa Kregear all vanished from a parking lot without a trace.
According to KFOR, the disappearance sparked a statewide search.
Prosecutors said a recent tip led investigators to the grave where three bodies were found.
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.

Prosecutors say Camp’s former sister-in-law drove the victims to the parking lot.
“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.”
Beverly continues to claim she had nothing to do with the deaths.
Her brother, 60-year-old Grover Prewitt, led prosecutors to the bodies. He’s been charged with accessory to murder.
KFOR reports that Grover allegedly agreed with OSBI to wear a wire at Beverly’s sister’s house to get the two to talk about the killings.
Court records say Grover thought his mother and sister killed the women.
Grover and Beverly’s mother, Ida, 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.
