    I didn't know Mary had been ruled out. Maybe it was on dentals? I didn't think they had DNA for Little Miss X since they can't locate her remains, so it seems it would have to be dentals or some other pretty certain factor.

    They didn't say how they were able to rule her out, only that she was excluded.

    Bumping.
    Also, did anyone consider the possibility of Donnis getting pregnant? At the time it surely would be a big inconvenience. Maybe they ran off when they realised and lived under different names, hence never reconnecting with their families? Or maybe there was an abortion attempt that went wrong, Donnis died and Michael left without her, leaving the car somewhere to cover his tracks, knowing that he would be questioned about Donnis? Or maybe he murdered her to get rid of the problem and fled?

    It's certainly possible but they eloped so I wonder if back in 1968 that would have been more acceptable for her to be pregnant.

    @GriffinHull and @talelights Never heard from you two again. Did something come of it? Were there ever more pictures of Pinky found in her mothers stuff. We desperately need another picture of her and additional information (if there is). If there are baby pictures can somebody say something about her hair...was it naturally curly?

    I am still around working to get information on LMX. There is some evidence that might be ripe for DNA testing now that it more advanced. I am not sure if the Cold Case Unit in Coconino County has been able to move forward, since the virus. I am awaiting an answer on that question.

    Thank you for keeping this alive. I have been away from Pinky for a while, now have been waiting for movements as far a location of the remains for exhumation. The first site was not her, sad to say. I understand LE may have a second location to exhume. But I have not further information. I too wish I heard more from GriffinHull. I have some personal information from the family. Pinky’s mother never got over the her the fact Pinky has never been found.

    I'm surprised there aren't more pictures of Donnis. She was such a beautiful young woman.

    Perhaps she never knew she was missing?

    My thoughts on this case have always been that someone took advantage of this young couple. Maybe they gave a ride to a bad character who robbed and killed them and left them someplace, taking their money and taking the car for a distance before abandoning it. I would think if they ran off to elope they'd have had every cent they owned with them, which for two teens wasn't much, but people have been killed for less than $5 before. Plus having the car may have made them seem like an attractive mark for someone looking to carjack them.

    Unfortunately, I also get the impression that they were intercepted soon after running away together. Imagine being a starry-eyed high school-aged kid thinking that you're about to start the rest of your life with what you believe to be your soulmate only to come across the wrong people and have your life taken away from you before it even had a chance to truly begin. It's very saddening.

    I've also thought of carjacking as a possible motive for why anyone would want to hurt them. I've also thought of the opposite scenario - perhaps they ran into car trouble themselves and ended up accepting a ride with someone with bad intentions. I wonder if the car was found in running condition. I think that would tell us a lot with respect to the aforementioned two scenarios.
