Carol's demeanor on the stand was described as being odd and, from what I read, she didn't express sadness about what happened to Christie.
    I don't think she realized how isolated it was because she could see the road, the parking lot, etc. Probably Carol told her they would cut through the woods and so it just seemed a convenient place to wait. I can see why she did it. It's just even now with cameras watching places (where they were few in number then and maybe zero in number in that shopping center), I'm not sure that rail would be watched. That's what made me think how odd of a place it was.

    I wonder if she was grabbed from behind or if someone (who she may have thought was Carol) called her from the woods. She was most certainly set up whether Carol realized she was setting up her friend for MURDER, I don't know. It's impossible to say, but I sure hope she didn't intend any such thing. But, then why wouldn't she tell what she knew? Was she afraid?

    Slain Woman’s ID Withheld By Police

    The Columbus Dispatch newspaper on Sunday August 24, 1975 published the breaking news article about a body being found in the woods behind Woolco at Graceland Shopping Center.

    The article reported that the victim was barefooted, her blue jeans were unzipped, and her halter top was pulled over her midriff.

    The article described the murder suspect that police were looking for as a white male in his late teens, long black hair, wearing cutoff shorts, shirtless, and looked like he hadn’t shaven for several days. He was also described as 6 feet and thin, weighting 140 to 150 pounds.

    The newspaper reported when the male eyewitness found the victim's body, he picked up the board that was lying across the victim's head and threw it into the woods.

    When the male eyewitness went into the Woolco store to report the crime, store employees reported that the eyewitness was upset and pretty mad.

    The newspaper also reported that the eyewitness and several Woolco employees started searching the area behind the store, but the article didn't say if they went into the dense woods behind the store.

    Teenager’s Slayer Is Hunted

    In a Columbus Dispatch newspaper article published on Monday August 25, 1975, police admitted that they were no closer to solving the murder than they were shortly after her body was found.

    Columbus Police released a composite sketch of the murder suspect that they were looking for.

    The newspaper article also showed a map of where the crime took place.

    The Franklin County Coroner reported that the victim died of a fractured skull and also claimed that there were no signs that the victim was sexually molested.

    The article reported that the prank telephone caller spoke with an Appalachian accent.

    Christie's father told reporters that his daughter never would gone willingly into the woods with a stranger.

    A police spokesperson also told reporters that police did not have any recent complaints of molesters in the area where the murder took place.

    Police planned to check the blood stained board for fingerprints but were doubtful that any good prints would be found on the board.

    That guard rail, in the photo. Where they were setting, is just a few feet away from where she was found yes?

    When carol went inside to check the time, he could have just snuck up behind her and put a hand over her mouth and with his other arm wrapped around her waist, he could have just dragged to to where she was found.

    That was suppose to be carol getting murdered that day not Christie.
    It looks as if they did take the short cut through the woods, which is what he wanted because he was there waiting for her. But there were two not one so he waited. When carol left he made his move on Christie. Carol knew the killer from somewhere. And or he knew carol and got her number etc. But why would he want to kill carol that day, that week since he called all week. I wonder if something happened the week before that brought this about..........

    YOUR archive documents are VERY much appreciated. Thank you for taking the time and posting them. It was good to see the composite stech and the body. THAT surprised me. I didn't think i would be seeing the body, which appeared to be not that far from where she was setting on the rail.

    JUST A FYI...
    THE ABOVE IS BASED ON THE THEORY THAT CAROL WAS THE INTENDED VICTIM AND NOT CHRISTIE. AS FAR AS CHRISTIE BEING SETUP FOR MURDER I HAVE NOT COME TO THAT POINT IN THE INVESTIGATION.

    two witnesses reported seeing someone fitting the description riding a bicycle and another reported seeing possible match running past her house around the time the call was being made to police. Not so sure about the bicycle report, but the other with the man running by fitting the description. I like that one better.

    Christie's body was found in the woods ¾ of a mile away from the store and the railing.

    I think that be quite a distance for someone to drag her from where she was abducted to where she was found.

    I see three possible scenarios here concerning what happen to Christie.

    The first one is that Christie went into the woods with someone she knew.

    The second one is that the suspect brandished a weapon and forced Christie to go into the woods.

    The third one is that Christie got tired of waiting on Carol, and decided to go back home taking the shortcut through the woods by herself.

    Not sure why but I'm unable to view the thumbnail links. I can google and find a list of every article available but they're not linked to the actual article, only titles.

    Yes, I did read that later, but it was to late to go back and edit my post about the 3/4 mile.

    Is she still living?...No statue of limitation on murder. Since carol is no longer 14 would not be a bad idea to bring her back in for a polygraph.

    If there is a cold case unit in this state I would see if anyone is assigned to this case.

    Would like to see high school year books from 73-75 from carol and or Christie school. Just to see if anyone resembling the composite may be in there.

    The male witness was only 24 or 25 years old when the murder was committed. I'd want to bring his former wife back first along with her son who testified at the trial. He was only 10 years old when Christie was murdered but 12 by the time he testified. The child's facts were different from what the grown-ups claimed happened that day.

    I wonder if the murder weapon WAS ever tested for bloody finger prints. There are still so many of the involved families alive, I don't understand why none of them have insisted on justice. If it had been my sister, I would be fighting for her till my dying day.

    Police Sketch & Suspect Photo Comparsion

    Here are two word documents that I created.

    The first one is the police sketch of the killer.

    The second one is the police sketch and a side by side comparsion of the police sketch and the suspect who was arrested and later acquitted in the Christie Lynn Mullins murder case.

    It seems as though Christie's killer knew her.

    She probably didn't know him, because she would have recognised his voice.

    I think the guy who "found" her is an excellent suspect, particularly as he lived nearby.

    Maybe he'd been watching her for a while.

    Stupid question, does anyone know if they traced the calls?

    Everything I post is my opinion only, can change at any time, and is not intended to replace fact.

    I don't have a program to open them. Adobe will-not. Any Suggestions?
