Kristin Chenoweth seeks answers to the unsolved murders of three Girl Scouts in June of 1977 in the new ABC News special Keeper of the Ashes: The Oklahoma Girl Scout Murders.

The 53-year-old, a native of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, opens up about her personal connection to the tragedy, as she was supposed to be at Camp Scott, the sleepaway camp where the murders took place, until an illness sidelined her from attending.

‘I should have been on that trip, but I had gotten sick,’ the Tony Award-winning entertainer said. ‘My mom said, “You can’t go.” It has stuck with me my whole life. I could have been one of them.

‘This is a story I wish I never had to tell – it haunts me every day, but this story needs to be told.’

In the special, Chenoweth is back in her home state in an effort ‘to find answers once and for all’ to the 45-year mystery, in which Doris Denise Milner, 10, Michele Heather Guse, nine, and Lori Lee Farmer, eight, were sexually assaulted and killed at the sleepaway camp.

The special features interviews with while relatives of the victims speaking about their lives in the aftermath of the tragedy, as well as an attorney for an acquitted suspect in the case, a Camp Scott counselor and Mayes County Sheriff Mike Reed, who opened the case up again.

In the case, a man named Gene Leroy Hart – who had escaped prison four years before the murders – was charged and later acquitted in the killings, the St. Petersburg Times reported.

Hart died two years later in prison after he was sent back to serve his sentences for rape, murder and kidnapping convictions.

Reed earlier this month told Tulsa CBS affiliate KOTV-DT that a new review of DNA evidence in the case using modern technology ruled out all suspects except Hart.

‘I pray that there’s something that we’ve done that gives the family a second of something that even resembles closure or acceptance or something I pray that,’ Reed said. ‘But as far as peace, there is absolutely nothing about this case that has given me one second of peace. Period.

‘From watching the pain on the family to having to go through the crime scene before during and after, from watching the legal system to watching the parole board, to watching how this whole thing played out, to watching how people would use this to springboard their own personal agendas, there ain’t nothing about this whole thing that is peaceful. It is evil.’

Chenoweth said in the special, ‘When I think of those three girls, I wonder what’s the best way to honor them; that’s why I’d come back home, to find answers once and for all.’

She added that ‘there’s no closure’ and ‘no pretty red bow at the end.’
