Who Killed Vicki Carpenter in 1985 ???

Vicki Clements Carpenter graduated from Denver's Temple Baptist Academy in 1978. The following year she married Paul Carpenter. Their son, Justin, was born in December 1981. Vicki was employed by King Soopers as a Secretary at their store on Montview in Aurora. A popular, outgoing individual, she enjoyed country-western dancing. Separated from her husband in August 1984, Vicki and Justin lived with her mother, Lynette Clements.

On the evening of February 18, 1985, Vicki went to Knicks Restaurant and Saloon for the first time to participate in a fashion contest. At about midnight she left Knicks and headed home. She never showed up and her mother reported her as missing the next day. Witnesses at Knicks later stated they saw Vicki get into her white and maroon, 1967 Buick by herself. The car was later found abandoned and disabled only a half mile east of Knicks, in the parking lot of an apartment complex.

Vicki's partially submerged body was found in the Cherry Creek Spillway on April 2, 1985. Authorities believe she was strangled.
