OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - An Oklahoma woman is facing charges for killing three people more than 20 years ago. The 67-year-old was the last person to see the victims before they disappeared, but she maintains her innocence.
A statewide manhunt in 1992 turned up empty for two decades until the gravesite got unearthed. But the deaths of Wendy Camp, Cynthia Brittow and Lisa Krieger remained a mystery.
Beverly Noe is now accused of the triple killing, despite her claims of innocence.
"They say I was the last one to see them but I honest to God dropped them off that's why I'm not guilty of anything," she said.
Noe claims she dropped off the three victims at a store that once housed a Walmart.
"I never hurt nobody. I took 'em to the Walmart in Chandler. I'll say that to my dying days," said Noe.
Investigators with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation say Noe killed the victims with a simple motive.
"She did not want Wendy Camp to have custody of Jonathon Noe," said Jessica Brown with the OSBI.
According to court records, last year Noe's ex-husband told investigators that she told him before the murders, "Getting custody of Jonathon wouldn't be a problem if [Wendy Camp] wasn't involved."
Jonathon Noe has lived with his grandmother, Beverly, at a house in Bristow for two decades. With police still on scene claiming she killed his mother and sister, Jonathon struggled to make sense of the case.
"There is just a lot going through my mind at the moment," he said.
"This brings some solace to them even though it is some 22 years later. I hope they know that we were always on this case," said Brown.
Officials with the OSBI also believe that Noe's mother, Ida Prewitt, took part in the murders. Ida died from cancer in 2011.
