Fayetteville-Blanchester Road site that prompted the excavation for Carrie Culberson in late April. Information was
obtained from two informants that lead to this search and one of which is an exgirlfriend of Vincent Doan, who still

filed in a federal court by Doan's court appointed attorney, Kort Gatterdam
Shannon Hodson, the girlfriend who
moved into Vincent Doan's house 2
weeks after Carrie Culberson vanished.
Hodson was later
charged with helping
dispose of evidence and she went on a
cross country
police chase with Doan's
half brother Tracey Baker, after
Vincent Doan was put in jail for
Culberson's disappearance & murder.
Ms. Hodson appeared before a judge
on Aug. 27, 2004 to have her police
record cleared so she could pursue a
career as a nurse. This is the same
career Carrie Culberson was going to
pursue shortlfy before she vanished.

was believed to have been seen in the

for Carrie Culberson. Please note the
