    I have family that lives in RC and I have lived there a while too..its pretty small and remote. I Have looked for information on this case with no luck. It appears that her death occurred the day that she went missing, and that the remains were found in 1990, yet it took until 2011 to confirm it....I am wondering if her death is considered a homicide , have they figured out the cause of death? the area is a very "homey" place where everyone knows everyone and helps their neighbors, its a very small town mentality...I have had time thinking that it was a local who murdered her....Does anyone else have anything further?

    It seems that because the state screwed up this case is wrapped in a lot of secrecy and nothing is being reported...that has me wondering....
