Ep. 7 The Unsolved Murders of The Oklahoma Girl Scouts Part 2

Welcome Nerdlings!  Today’s episode is a dark one.  This is part two and our final part in the series exploring the murders of three young girls who were brutally raped and murdered in the woods of Oklahoma during a girl scout retreat back on June 13th 1977.  Maybe one day we will be able to do a Part 3 if there is ever any resolution to this yet unsolved case.
