Fox Nation follows Hulu in detailing Oklahoma Girl Scout murders

In 1977, three girls — Lori Farmer, Denise Milner and Michele Guse — were killed while attending a Girl Scout camp near Locust Grove, Oklahoma.

Gene Leroy Hart, who was arrested after an intense manhunt and charged with the crimes, was ultimately acquitted after a sensational trial.

The case, which remains perhaps the state’s most infamous cold case, was the subject of a four-part Hulu series called “Keeper of the Ashes: The Oklahoma Girl Scout Murders” that was released earlier this year. Now, a four-part series from Fox Nation called “The Girl Scout Murders” looks back at the cold case.

Prior to these streaming programs, the Late Edition: Crime Beat Chronicles podcast covered the case as part of a 7-part series. You can listen to all of the episodes below, which are based on a 2017 series of reports from the Tulsa World. You can scroll below the audio players to find links to all six chapters in the series as well as additional information on the case.
