    It appears that the first name matches the photo to the left, the second name matches the photo on the right. For example, in the the sixth row on the page, J.G.'s name is first and his photo is on the left. D.G.'s name is second and her photo is on the right.

    I found the girl on the top right in the 1977 yearbook and her name isn't Carolyn Eaton, it is A.E. I've been looking through yearbooks on Ancestry recently and I've noticed a lot of transcription errors.

    It’s possible that her yearbook isn’t on classmates or other websites.

    Here is a retouched version of the photo that the CCSD provided to me.

    Maybe her face can trigger someone’s memory of seeing or talking to her on January 81’

    Hopefully she told her friends in Phoenix a little more about her plans.

    I wonder why she wanted to go to New Jersey and if she knew anyone there.

    Thank you so much for posting. I hope Patty Wilkins gets to see this picture. Sigh...it got dusty in here all of a sudden...

    By the way, both the original color sketch and Carl’s version do a good job of resembling Carolyn.

    She looks a lot like the drawing of her. She was a very pretty girl.

    I’m sure she will, and I’m happy that she got some closure!

    I sure hope investigators are able to solve Carolyn’s presumed murder.

    THE LOST GIRL OF ASH FORK

    I just wanted to take a minute to commend CarlK (again). It’s amazing how much his reconstruction looks like Carolyn! I found this post from earlier in the thread. He combined Patty Wilkins’ eyewitness recollection and a ct-scan recon to create an image that really is remarkable.

    Thank you. That stands out to me. I had been somewhat doubtful the student picked up the same girl, due to direction headed plus some of the details like Phoenix and dishwasher and New Jersey. But the root canal aspect overrides everything else.

    I'm sure Patty will be emotional also. She was tasked with trying to describe that face nearly 40 years ago. Then the basics would linger all these decades but nothing can match a photographic reminder, especially one so youthful, heathy and hopeful.

    Carl K per norm did a great job. I'd say most of the sketches end up being slightly flattering to the subject. Not this time. Reality wins.

    We don't post pics of individuals unless we are 100% certain they are one and the same. It is my understanding that the identified victim CE was born in Missouri and disappeared from Missouri so I am not seeing a connection to having attended high school in Indiana. The CE in the Indiana high school yearbook may in fact be alive and well and we don't want to be connecting a random person who is not known to be missing to a deceased individual who is a murder victim.

    I agree, after seeing both the official photo of Carolyn and the alleged Carolyn Eaton, I’m confident that they are two unrelated people.

    He did a remarkable job! From the 3 reconstructions that were done by him, as always, he did a wonderful reconstruction!

    Im thinking that maybe Carolyn was wearing the same sweater the day he picked her up, and perhaps, given that she commented on the root canal.

    And that she intended to get a ride on Flagstaff, to head to New Jersey, may have confirmed to authorities that she was the girl that Patty saw and who’s body was found on the crime scene.

    I wonder if the CCSD has already or is in the process of contacting her friends that were on Phoenix.

    Maybe they have calls rolling in following the release of her name. I wish the news articles can update and include her photo as it can jog someone’s memory who met her.

    She is surely at peace, and certainly she is with her family everyday.
