Candles Movie Trailer Released

A trailer for a feature film directed by an ex-con who claims the movie will reveal the real murderer of three Girl Scout campers in Oklahoma in 1977 has been released.

Called Candles, the film chronicles the grizzly murders that happened on the first night of camp at Camp Scott in Northeastern Oklahoma on the night of June 13, 1977.

A documentary on the tragedy narrated by Johnny Cash entitled Someone Cry For the Children and a book of the same name were released in 1981. A book entitled Tent Number Eight was released last summer.

A local news station in Oklahoma reported on the trailer being filmed in Kansas last week and ABC News reported on it last July.
