    I am so sorry about your sister, Cartersmina. I lived in Rawlins for a time in the 90s and never heard about this horrible summer til WS. I'm pretty convinced it was the same man in both cases, too. He was so evil!
    My guess is that since the other two bodies were found within just a few miles of Rawlins proper, the other two are in close proximity as well. Wyoming is nothing if not extremely desolate.

    Interesing that her friend is spooked by that one spot and wakes up if she is near it-maybe Carlene is reaching out to her.

    I have the thread marked and I check in occasionally, but I'm not very interested in true crime...

    Hmm, but this is a true crime site and you are fairly active in this thread.

    My main interest is finding out who unidentified people are so they can have their names back and go home to their families. So that means I follow missing people as well.

    If there's something in particular you'd like me to look at, I'd be glad to do it. I'm wondering whether that third unidentified girl they found might be Carlene.

    You mean the Pocatello abductions unidentified girl? I think she was biracial-Carlene was not.

    Ah, I thought she was with the Lewiston murders.

    Do we know for sure Carlene wasn't bi-racial? I thought the most recent information was that she had been adopted as an infant and her biological background was uncertain.

    edited to add: I went and reread the article at http://www.kboi2.com/news/local/127339528.html. It says Caucasion or multiracial:

    In 1983, another skull was found just a mile from where the two girls' remains were located, he said. Though investigators were able to determined that the skull belonged to a Caucasian or possibly multi-racial female in her late teens or early 20s, they were never able to match an identity to the remains. Semrad said he has a hunch the cases are related, but at this point nothing solid to connect them.

    Carlene didn't look biracial, but that means nothing.

    Missing: Montana woman hopes to close one of Rawlins’ darkest cases

    [snip]

    July Fourth, 1974, was unremarkable in a lot of ways in Rawlins.

    The weather was pretty average, historically, at least, with a high of 84.

    Independence Day meant the return of fireworks after a several-year absence for Rawlins residents during the annual Renegade Roundup, a Fourth of July celebration.

    The one remarkable thing about that day in Rawlins history was the disappearance of two young women.

    That was the last time friends and family saw 19-year-olds Carlene Brown and Christi Gross alive.

    The two friends attended the Little Britches Rodeo, then a Rawlins fixture.
    After that, they disappeared.

    Gross’ skeletal remains were found nine years later on Oct. 27, 1983, in a field three miles south of Sinclair. She was killed by two heavy blows to the skull.

    Carlene Brown, well, she’s still missing. Her body was never found.

    How frustrating it must be to have a possibility, but because the possible victim was adopted, the lack of DNA makes it near impossible to resolve!!! I never even had that scenario cross my mind!!

    Yet another argument against closed adoptions.

    The area where Christy Gross was located - At that time did they do a larger search in that 3 mile South of Sinclair area for Carlene Brown? Was it like a public area?
