As a side note, I dont think her husband at the time was ever fully cleared by police either.And it is also believed she died at the hands of a serial killer, who authorities believe is already in custody for a similar Wyoming abduction and killing.
That's my closest guess. Of course, she could have had a stalker no one knew about or an opportunistic person who spotted her on that very lightly traveled road.I do think it is quite possible that Dale Wayne Eaton could be responsible. But there just appears to be little to no evidence. And he isn't talking. I had hoped that with his death sentence, as execution date neared he may start talking about other victims of his. But now that that was converted to life in prison, I suspect he will take his secrets to the grave.
I know the spouse, boy friend, etc., is always looked at very hard. But in this case, I don't see it as a strong possibility. The biggest part is I don't see a motive.
