Twenty-two years after their loved ones went missing family members can finally lay Wendy Camp, her 6-year-old daughter Cynthia Britto, and Lisa Kregear to rest.
The decades old cold case came to an end in January after the main suspect in the case, Beverly Noe, accepted a plea deal. The Medical Examiner's office says they will now release the remains, so family can give them a proper burial.
For almost twenty years, Camp, Britto, and Kregear were buried near Jennings. Until April 2013, when a tip led investigators to the property where they discovered the remains.
“We still miss them and will never forget them,” said Manell Morris, Kregear’s sister.
Manell and Camp's husband Leon now live in Kansas, but they were there when Beverly Noe was sentenced to 15 years in the case.
“God has gave me the peace I need,” said Leon Camp.
And while they have peace with the judicial process, they still haven't buried their family members.
“I dread even doing this and our whole family dreads doing this, but it’s something that needs to be done,” said Morris tearfully.
The medical examiner has said they can have the remains. But family members who want to attend the funeral are scattered across the country.
“My niece is in New Mexico, nephew is in Texas, my brother in law is in Michigan,” said Leon Camp.
Since many can't afford to travel to Oklahoma, Manell and husband started a Go Fund Me Page https://www.gofundme.com/x62hqqs8 to help pay for the expenses. However, since starting the page in August they've only raised $50 from one donor.
“Hasn’t been going very well at all,” said Leon Camp.
So, the funeral is now on hold until they can raise the money to lay their loved ones to rest in a proper grave.
“It’s kind of stressful not being able to put them to rest,” Camp.
