September 27, 2015 - Ballou Cemetery, Mays County, Oklahoma
On a warm summer day in 1977 three young girls were found
brutally murdered at Girl Scout Camp Scott located in rural eastern Oklahoma. The
murders caused the “largest man hunt in Oklahoma history” and the ensuing “trial
of the century” of “ Cherokee Outlaw” Eugene
(Gene) Leroy Hart for the murders. Hart
was acquitted of the crime.
There are three excellent books on the murders,
investigation and trial “Tent number 8”, by Gloyd McCoy, “The Camp Scott
Murders” by C. S. Kelly and “Someone Cry for the Children” by Michael and Dick
The team started investigating
these murders and soon focused on outlaw Leroy Hart. Leroy’s past of various petty crimes, rape
of two women, being a prison escapee at the time of the murders and his
relationship in the area around Mays County and Locust Grove, OK.
Also Native American shamanism appears to have played a role
in his life with subsequent predictions after the trail that if shamanism was
used wrongly he would pay. Leroy went back to prison to finish his rape
sentence and died of a heart attack at the age of 35.
Investigators Marilyn and Dick located where he was
buried and his grave stone in the Ballou Cemetery which is located 6.2 miles
south of Locust Grove off Highway 82 on Earl Bob Road.
Arrangements were made to conduct a “Ghost Hunt” September
27, 2015 at his grave site in an attempt to communicate with his sprit and establish
some truths to the many pro and con stories relating him to the murders.
The UMR and Oklahoma UFO Paranormal Team setup a base
station at the grave site so the “hunt’ could be and was streamed on the
Internet Radio Network (IRN).
Several paranormal instruments were used.

We started setting
up at 5:30PM and were on the air and streaming at 5:50PM. Ken reviewed for the
listeners some history of the murders, the investigations that took place, his
law enforcement opinions on the case and the history of Leroy Hart. Ken and
Marilyn also explained for the listeners what we wanted to accomplish during
The group and team,
with assistance of invited guest checked out the cemetery for indications of
sprit activity and activity was noted.
Although we started
at 5:50PM, and we were getting MEL meter reading of 1.80 at times no MEL meter
communication was able to be established.
At 7:02PM we setup
a small MAG flashlight on top of his head stone, turning the light just off to
allow sprit to turn it on. This technique has been used several times by both
to contact Leroy with no success, so she
then attempted to contact Leroy’s mother who is buried beside Leroy. At approximately 7:50PM contact with Ella May Buckskin (Leroy’s mother) was established.
This is a 14 minute YouTube video of our contact and conversation.
