Maybe time heals but sometimes there are wounds that can’t be healed, as in the case of Lisa Carnes of Karnak, Illinois. She was murdered more than 31 years ago and maybe this is the year that someone will come forth and say what happened.
What does happen over time is that people get divorced, relatives pass away, domestic violence victims leave relationships that kept them so fearful they were willing to keep quiet even about murder. Maybe someone knows that their ex-spouse or boyfriend was responsible for Carnes’ death, maybe they were a child in the household and heard things no child should hear but they are now adults and not fearful of talking about what they heard.
Police solve these long unsolved cases by putting together pieces of a puzzle and you might have that one missing piece of the puzzle that will help a killer come to justice and a family to finally have peace about what happened to a loved one.
Murder does not occur in a vacuum. Most murders are not the result of a psychopathic, brilliant serial killer. Most of them occur because someone did something stupid at a time of weakness. These people are not career criminals, they nearly always leave some kind of trail and someone out there knows about it. Maybe the killer talked to friends over beers, maybe he came home one night covered in blood and distraught, maybe he even asked someone to come pick him up at the murder scene. SOMEONE KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED TO LISA CARNES.
Lisa Carnes’ body was found in a field in rural Massac County (Illinois) near Macedonia Church Road and U. S. Highway 45. She had been brutally murdered and left to die in a rural field. Carnes’ truck was later located roughly four miles from the site where her body was located. Her family tends to suspect that she knew her killer and had some connection with that killer.
