    It's completely plausible, they may not have known that she died on Feb. I wonder if her belongings stayed on the truck of her alleged killer.

    I wonder if she used her handkerchief by moving it in the wind, to be seen by drivers as she was hitchiking.

    Why was the colour of her eyes altered so greatly in the enhanced image and isn't it incorrect? Mightn't that throw off someone who might otherwise remember her if they see the wrong eye colour?

    When I originally enhanced the photo sent by the CCSD, the MyHeritage app gave her eyes a brown/hazel color.

    We know from witnesses that she had blue eyes, I changed her eye color to blue and I color corrected the photo, as the original has a reddish tint to it.

    It’s possible that in the original photo her blue eyes aren’t that distinctive.

    I think that I posted the close up of her face, before color correcting it, but with her blue eyes.

    Here’s a thought: Could the student that gave Carolyn a ride from Cordes Junction have misheard or misremembered “St. Louis” as “New Jersey”? She had a toothache and maybe her speech was impeded because of it...of course she could have really had family in New Jersey for all we know.

    The photo I am referring to is the CCSD photo in which the blue colour is very deep, even though it appears not to have been so in reality.

    Oh i see, the photo provided by the CCSD doesn't show her eye color as blue in my opinion, i enhanced the photo and in the process, her eyes got that shade of blue.

    Here is the original copy that was provided to me by the Sheriff''s Office, upon asking ;)

    Ah, I was under the impression that the enhanced photo was the official image released by the Sheriff's Office and thus was being used on sites such as Unidentified Wiki.

    Thank you for clarifying that!

    May I ask what software you used to enhance the photos?

    It’s okay!

    I added the new photos on her wiki, including the crime scene photos in case that someone saw something that night.

    It’s entirely possible, I think that she could have mentioned NJ and St. Louis.

    The reddish tint appears to be an artifact of the old flash cameras--most people's eyes would look red if the light reflected directly off the retina. The red reflection could easily obscure the true color of the iris.

    Since this is a known issue with older photos, the photo software might well know how to deal with it and restore the correct color.

    A minor error regarding the tree Carolyn was found under; the Unidentified Wikia and other sources say she was found under a cedar tree. Cedars aren’t found in Arizona, the tree in question is a juniper, most likely an Alligator Juniper.

    Interesting article indeed! It also mentioned that Carolyn invited two men into her home just before she ran away...this is a bit of a stretch, but could one of them be the old man with the peacock feather hat Patty witnessed? Also, there were accounts from witnesses who apparently saw Carolyn, the white man and a black man too...I guess if she had invited these 2 men, it would mean that she would be comfortable around them, which would match what happened at the truck stop (and the other witness accounts).

    On another note, this is the first time we are told that Carolyn's bra was cut, which makes me think this crime was still somewhat sexually motivated. But that's my pure speculations only.

    Or perhaps those were her friends in Phoenix? We may never know.
