    For one of the last persons to see Eaton alive all those years ago, Patty Wilkins can now have some peace.

    “Well, I’m going to cry. It’s like one of my girls,” said Wilkins. “It’s only been me and her. Now she’s got a family. Isn’t that great? It doesn’t get any better.”

    Wilkins believes she saw Eaton alive at her family's truck stop on or around February 2 in 1982. Eaton's body was found just a mile up the road on February 14. Detectives believe she was dead for about two weeks before she was found.

    “We’ve got a name and I’m no longer in charge of her,” said Wilkins. “I love you and I’m glad you’re going home.”

    “We didn’t want to give you false hope that we were going to make a positive ID,” said Coconino County Sheriff Jim Driscoll, on why his office wouldn’t do an interview with us or give us details several weeks ago when we were working on our investigation. “She had run away in December and she was a troubled kid. She had some issues.”

    Is that the South Ripley photo and are we sure it’s Carolyn? It closely resembles the original color sketch!

    So far, CCSD hasn’t made a formal announcement of Carolyn’s identity, maybe they are preparing it and we’ll eventually know more details on Carolyn.

    And perhaps, photographs of her.

    That kind of pain can be debilitating, and maybe that was all she could afford. She tried to do what she could for herself, so is it possible that the dentist was working for a social health facility?

    Good news,

    I received a response from CCSD, in regards to the possibility that the suspect seen with Carolyn being RRL. They said that they forwarded this tip to the detectives.

    I also asked if there is going to be some sort of livestream conference where LE releases details of Carolyn and photos of her.

    Hopefully we get an answer soon!

    It's possible, i think that she got her treatment in December.

    Maybe she took her antibiotics with her, and if the witness account is true, she possibly kept them in her friends's residence, or maybe she ran out of those.

    Oh man, I've gotten myself all emotional thinking about what Patty feels.

    She was the last one to see Carolyn alive, and no doubt thought about her every day. I can't imagine what she's thinking right now, it must be so bittersweet for her.

    Rest in Peace Carolyn. <3

    I agree, I’m happy that she found closure though.

    From the article, it states that she stopped celebrating Valentine’s Day since 1982.

    So sorry. I thought that looked like Pam. It’s been awhile since I’ve been in that thread. I’m slipping’ - it’s tough getting old. The photos came up attached to articles about VS. I apologize for the errors.

    If RRL really did kill Carolyn, could there have been a second girl too? RRL usually abducted girls in pairs.
    IMO

    Yes! Mount Vernon. Thanks CCJD.

    No worries, I figure most people knew anyway. :)
