The deaths of two women and a girl who went missing in 1992 have been ruled homicides, officials announced Friday.

The remains of Wendy Camp, Lisa Kregear and Cynthia Britto were found in a grave in Pawnee County in April. The three had been missing since May 29, 1992.

The three disappeared in 1992 after leaving Oklahoma City on a trip to visit Camp’s son, who lived in Shamrock with his father, Chad Noe.

Their skeletal remains were found buried six feet deep in a pasture near Jennings. The property once belonged to Noe’s grandmother and uncle, authorities have said. Investigators also found a .38-caliber Ruger revolver and a 6 1/2 inch knife at the site.

Officials with the state medical examiner’s office ruled Camp, 23, died from gunshot and sharp force injuries and Kregear, 23, died from gunshot wounds to the torso, according to an autopsy report. Britto’s cause of death is listed in an autopsy report as “homicidal violence by unspecified means.”

The uncle, Grover Prewitt Jr., is charged with being an accessory to first-degree murder after the fact. He is accused of helping his mother, Ida Prewitt, and other family members conceal the bodies in 1992. He has pleaded not guilty.

A preliminary hearing for Prewitt was scheduled for Friday in Bristow. That hearing was postponed until May 2.

Ida Prewitt died in 2011. No one has been charged directly in the deaths.
