    No problem, I just wish there were photographs of her available to us. :)

    Hazlewood East and Riverview Gardens seem to be the high schools near Bellefontaine Neighbors.

    I think I’ve checked those yearbooks to no avail. I’ll be back in a little bit after I grade some essays and try searching for photos.

    Just checked yearbooks for those suggestions: nothing. I wish that my day job was sometimes finding photos, not grading essays in the form of seventh grade boys, LOL.

    Just wondering, ¿Shouldn't her date of death be on the 4th of February?

    That night is when Patti Wilkins saw her in her truck stop with the unidentified companion.

    There's no way to verify that girl as Carolyn. It was thought she was Carolyn, but it is unconfirmed.

    Oh i see, i remember watching the video that True Crime Arizona made last week, in it they interviewed Patty Wilkins and she said that when question about the UID, she said that when shown the photos of the clothes she was found wearing.

    Patty said that those were the same clothes, however it is thought to be Valentine Sally.

    Here is the link to the True Crime Arizona vid:

    Patty Wilkins also remembered the girl asking for an aspirin to treat a toothache, Carolyn was found to have an incomplete root canal procedure done.

    So since Carolyn was probably with this man then it narrows down the death frame to February 4 - 13.

    I think that she died that same night.

    My thought if she died after the 4th is that she travelled with possibly the same man seen with her, or another one. If that is the case, i find it hard that the aspirin could have stayed on her tooth.

    I agree, the body was also at the dump site long enough for rodents to gnaw at fingers and ears.

    And considering the freezing conditions of February 82', maybe that is why she was partially eaten, animal activity may have been pretty low.

    Now, as many questions are there are in this case, I honestly wonder how the heck poor Carolyn got from Missouri to Arizona in less than 2 months? I know anything is possible here (e.g. Sumter County Does), but this was a teenager.

    Perhaps she took a bus, or hitchhiked her way to Arizona,

    The witness who picked her up in early February 82’ said that she was traveling due to family problems and that she’d been working as a dishwasher.

    Maybe she performed odd jobs through her way.

    I find it strange too. And how, within 2 months, she seemed to be quite comfortable with the man who was accompanying her - normally people aren't comfortable being around complete strangers. Even weirder was how the man seemingly cared for her, even asking about her tooth....we know this man can't be Carolyn's father, so who was he?

    St. Louis has a lot of truck drivers passing through it, it's not unfathomable she got a ride of one of them and was able to wind up in AZ within two months or so. Plus the fact witnesses said she was trying to get a ride from a truck driver to New Jersey would attest to the possibility that she knew she could get pretty far riding with a trucker.
