    WY - Carlene Brown, 19, Rawlins, 4 July 1974

    Not sure if this is the right place to put this. Below is a link to the Charley Project for missing person Carlene Brown. I read a letter to the editor about this missing woman, and I just hated the thought that nothing has been solved on it. Any ideas? Below also is a link to the Letter to the Editor and original news article.

    Wow, yeah, that's really sad, it seems like nobody even remembers her.

    I often think of Carlene Brown, I think if we could figure out more about routes that Royal Russell Long drove as a long haul trucker and other places he worked I have no doubt we would be able to recover remains of so many young girls. Everytime I think of my sister Charlotte Kinsey, I also think of everyone of the other girls that I think believe he abducted and murdered.

    This is Carlene Brown's page on NamUs.
    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/14488/2/
    It states the circumstances of her disappearance as --
    Brown was last seen with her friend Christy Gross, age 19, while visiting the Little Britches Rodeo in Rawlins, Wyoming on July 4, 1974.

    The skeletal remains of Christy Gross were found on October 27, 1983, three miles south of Sinclair, Wyoming.
    Were the person(s) responsible for Christy Gross's death ever found?

    Very scary that all these girls disappeared in the same area and in a short time-kinda like what happened in Idaho.

    I'm not familiar with the Idaho cases. Is there a thread about them anywhere?

    Thanks!

    I was aware of the Lewiston theater murders -- my great-aunt still lived there at the time and it did get some press in the east. Hadn't heard of the Pocatello cases though and it does sound kind of similar.

    With so little information about either case, I don't suppose they could even check whether the third girl is Carleen.

    When I began reading the page for https://identifyus.org/en/cases/9904, especially that they thought that she had been there for more than ten years, I thought that she might me Carlene, but then when I read about the clothing the UID was found in, that did not seem constant with Ms. Brown.

    I agree. Size 16 jeans is quite a bit larger than Carlene Brown or any of the other suspected Royal Russel Long victims. Also, Reeboks weren't available in the US at the time. 1979 would be the earliest, and I think those are the new women's line that came out in the early 80's. (Here's a thread about the history of Reebok: http://corporate.reebok.com/en/reebo...ry/default.asp)

    That's a very unusual ring, too.

    I couldn't find a thread for this unidentified woman. I'll dig more thoroughly later and if she's really not in here, I'll start a thread.

    Carbuff, it would be great if you could post in the lewiston theater thread. being a local, it would be great to get your input. There is also a facebook page re the case:
