OSBI Makes Arrest in 21-Year-Old Homicide Case
This morning, the OSBI, Creek County District Attorney Max Cook, and Lincoln County District Attorney Richard Smothermon announced significant progress in a 21-year-old missing persons’ case. Wendy Camp (d.o.b. 3/1/1969), her daughter Cynthia Britto (d.o.b. 1/17/1986), and Wendy’s sister-in-law Lisa Kregear (d.o.b. 10/18/1968) disappeared during a trip to Shamrock, Oklahoma, to visit Wendy’s young son. That trip took place May 29, 1992.
In March of this year, a relative of Wendy’s ex-husband told investigators where to find the bodies of the three missing victims. April 15, 2013, OSBI agents, Creek County investigators, and personnel with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner began digging at a rural area near Jennings. The next day, investigators uncovered remains of three individuals – two adults and one child. Clothing still on the bodies match the description given by Wendy’s current husband who filed the missing person’s report. DNA tests will confirm the identities of the victims, but investigators have no doubt the remains are those of Camp, Britto, and Kregear. The OSBI is now investigating this case as a triple homicide.
During the press conference this morning, OSBI agents arrested Grover Prewitt, Jr. (d.o.b. 7/20/1952) for accessory after the fact – murder, 1st degree for his role in concealing the fact the three had been murdered and their bodies dumped in an eight-foot-deep hole originally dug for a septic tank. At the time of the murders, he had sold his mother five of his 40 acres of land. It was on those five acres that the bodies were found. Prewitt was booked into the Creek County jail and bond was set at $500,000.
OSBI believes several others are involved in the homicides. The bureau is offering up to a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved in the homicides. Anyone with information is urged to call the OSBI hotline at 1-800-522-8017.
