  • The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has made a positive identification of three bodies found last year in Pawnee County and confirms they are the remains of two women and a girl who went missing in 1992.
     
    The remains were reported to be those from the 1992 case after they were found last May, and are now confirmed through forensics to be those of Wendy Camp, 23, her sister-in-law, Lisa Kregear, 22, and Camp’s daughter, 6-year-old Cynthia Britto.
     
    Pathologists have not yet ruled on cause and manner of the deaths.
     
    The three went missing May 29, 1992 after going on a road trip to visit Camp’s son, who at the time lived with his father in Shamrock. For years, the case was reported to have ties to the Chandler area, where the three were allegedly last seen after being dropped off at the old Chandler Walmart, but those reports are now believed to be false.
     
    Their disappearance was investigated for years until the skeletal remains were uncovered last May following a break in the cold case. The bodies were located on rural property that once belonged to the father's grandmother and uncle.
     
    The grandmother has since died, the Associated Press reports, and the uncle — George Prewitt Jr. — is charged as an accessory after the fact of first-degree murder in this matter. His case is progressing in Pawnee County District Court and he has pleaded innocent.
