We need confirmation of the date for Claude and Sue Shelton. Either May 21, 1971 or May 28th, 1971. Than the title thread should be updated. IMO, I think their car and remains are in the lake.
Update on the case from March 29th, 2015
Stunned by the comment about the number of missing people who are actually found in water when search efforts go there!
asWhile looking into Wyoming's unidentified, I came across Fox Park Jane Doe:
The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs)
From that website: "human female bones located in 1999. Appears bones have been there for a long period of time." Recovered with the remains were "one silver band with M.S.S. engraved, one silver colored rope style ring with two (2) clear colored tear drop shaped stones".
Susan Shelton's full name was Martha Sue Shelton and listed on her namus page (The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs)), it says she wore "1 wedding band and another ring that was silver braided (like a rope) with a blue stone set in it".
I saw where DNA testing was done on remains found in Oregon back in 2009 and it wasn't a match to Susan. Is there any way to find out if Fox Park Jane Doe and Susan's DNA have been compared?
Was this ever submitted?
I ended up moving not long after I posted but I did find an article from 2012 which says
"One of the rings is engraved with "M.SS," the initials of a woman from Tennessee who has been missing since 1972. Meyer has asked for a DNA comparison.
Meyer says the woman, her husband and their vehicle vanished in 1972."
That year should be 1971. If it is referring to the Shelton case.

Can't find it now,
But the daughter remembers overhearing Claude saying to Sue, "Are you going, or are you going to stay here?" when she was in bed. Claude's Charlie Project is here:

It suspects foul play, but I still think they had an accident and are in the lake. What bodies of water were within a 5 mile radius of their Trailer Park Home in 1971?
$600 is a heckuva lot of cash for a late night quick snack, just saying.
