    I agree, very usual, perhaps they are hoping for more remains to be found?

    Well since they found her skull, a sign that she is no longer alive and no longer missing, it’s just very odd and unusual

    Lots of good clues in that article. They could likely solve this with DNA. They have bone, hair, dental records, duct tape, etc. Hopefully, they can resolve this soon so the Mother can come to terms with her daughters death.

    Maybe the skull isn’t hers?

    I have no other explanation for why she would be on NamUS.

    I just found out that some cases where partially recovered remains are found, they are entered into Namus so the rest of the body can be found which is why Carol is on

    Interesting that they think Charlie Brandt could be involved with her killing. I am wondering though how a seasoned investigator would believe a forensic dentist about the dental match. I truly hope it was something really obvious and irrefutable, because those dental matches back in the 80s were know to be flawed especially in Florida. How can a skull decay as much as they said it did in 12 days? They did say "decay" which means they believe it wasnt skinned and then left to dry out. Unless the laws of physics somehow cease to exist in that part of Florida, I would want a DNA match to be sure...if there was, I certainly apologize but as far as I can tell it was a dental match that ID'd the skull.

    I’m questioning the dental ID also because it was as decomposed as they say. A human skull in a paint can is a tight fit, even as decayed a they're stating. The partial hair is interesting. That paint can could have been on the bottom of the pond. Eventually it may have come up when flooding occurred and deposited it on the bank. Then the water receded and it was found. What was the weather in Sept 1978, any hurricanes blow thru? Any other missing persons in the area that year? DNA is a must in this case. If she was tossed in that pond, they’ll never find the rest of her. They’d have to dredge the pond and filter it with screen or dissect every old gator thats still alive. They still wouldn’t likely find her.

    I think they should double check the skull
