On June 13, 1977, three girls (eight-year-old Lori Lee Farmer, nine-year-old Michele Guse, and ten-year-old Doris Denise Miller) were found violently slain after one of their bodies was found in the woods. The Girl Scout crew was on a camping trip in Camp Scott, Oklahoma.

About two months before the murders, someone left a cryptic note in a ransacked counselor’s tent stating that three girls would soon die.

A man named Gene Leroy Hart was charged for the murders but later acquitted. It is still not known who the true killer was. The docuseries, Keeper of Ashes: The Oklahoma Girl Scout Murders, seeks to document DNA testing attempts as forensic investigators continue to try and solve the gruesome mystery.

“This is a story I wish I never had to tell. It haunts me every day,” Chenoweth says. “But this story—it needs to be told. As a Girl Scout, I loved going to camp… They were like my sisters. I never once thought anything bad could happen. But I came to learn what murder was.”

Keeper of Ashes: The Oklahoma Girl Scout Murders will be available for streaming on Hulu on May 24.
