This Sunday marks eight years since Carrie Culberson of Blanchester, Ohio disappeared.

Friends of the Culberson family say they want Carrie's mom Debbie to know that they will always support her -- and that finding Carrie's body still needs to be done.

On a quiet evening in Blanchester, Ohio, members of the Highland County Domestic Task Force were out to support a friend.

Call For DNA Database Of Unidentified Remains
LAST UPDATE: 7/14/2004 6:55:06 PM
Article from Channel 12 News


The mother of a missing local woman rode a bus to the nation's capital to push for a new law that could help find her daughter's remains.
Carrie Culberson of Blanchester disappeared in 1996. Her body has never been found.
Right now there is no law requiring remains that are found be entered in a national database. Debbie Culberson says she believes the only hope for finding her daughter's remains is in Washington, D.C.
"I've been trying to get some kind of law mandating testing of remains," said Culberson.
In her daughter's case, there is evidence boyfriend Vince Doan killed then dismembered Carrie casting the parts into the Ohio River.
"She could be sitting on someone's shelf. Without testing I'll never know," said Culberson.
She spoke with Congressman Steve Chabot, R-Ohio. He is on the Judiciary Committee which has jurisdiction over federal criminal matters.
It won't be the first time this has been brought up. The Justice Department invited some of the finest forensic minds to talk about the same issue last fall.
The Justice Department recently approved more than 80 million dollars for DNA testing, but not DNA testing of remains. Congressman Chabot says that is overdue.
Investigators plan to contact police departments along the Ohio river to see if any unidentified remains have washed up that could be tested and compared with Carrie's DNA.

xx Color Scheme Change on Carrie's Site
« Reply #5 on: Sep 27th, 2004, 1:15pm »

This is a quick note to all dedicated viewers of the Carrie Culberson website that the colors have been changed on some of the pages on Carrie's site to commerate the upcoming month of October which is known as Domestic Violence Awareness month. The color scheme for Domestic Violence Awareness is purple. I wanted to recognize this month as much as possible and to give special attention to October 1st, which is known as the Day of Peace. This month means a lot to many families who have lost their loved one ones due to domestic violence.
This is also out of respect for Carrie Culberson and her mother Debbie Culberson who is very active in domestic violence training. This is a couple of days early but I wanted it up and running. smiley

xx Soil Sample Findings UPDATE 9-27-04
« Reply #6 on: Sep 27th, 2004, 10:11pm »

Confirmed resources have stated that ONE of four samples taken from the excavation site on the Fayetteville-Blanchester Road site have been determined to be negative for bone fragments of Carrie Culberson. There are STILL three other samples that are currently being tested. The completion date on those is unknown at this time, however they are still being observed by forensic officials. Once those findings are completed and confirmed, that information will be posted for all concerned viewers on this board.

We apologize for the delay in posting this information, however nothing on this site is posted without confirmation. We know that everyone appreciates and understands this procedure.

xx Event Fights Domestic Violence 10-2-04
« Reply #7 on: Oct 2nd, 2004, 11:18am »

By Andrea Remke
Enquirer staff writer


COVINGTON - Debra Culberson doesn't want the same thing that happened to her daughter to happen to other women.

The mother of Carrie Culberson, whose boyfriend had a history of abusing her and was convicted of her 1996 murder, was one of the guest speakers at the Day of Peace celebration Friday in Covington. The event drew about 100 people to kick off Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October.

According to the event co-chairs, Ann Brandon and Tracy Denham, Day of Peace hopes to promote peace making and reduce violence in families, neighborhoods and schools in Northern Kentucky.

"We're trying to get the word out to the community about domestic violence, dating violence, even elder abuse," said Maureen Rich, event committee member.

"While domestic violence (awareness) has come a long way, we still have a long way to go," Denham said.

Kim Adams, executive director of the Women's Crisis Center, told the crowd gathered at the Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center, "Organizations like the crisis center are here to help. But we can't do it without the help of the community."

Covington Mayor Butch Callery also read a proclamation declaring October as Domestic Violence Awareness month in Covington, saying the city was pledging a "commitment to educating Kentuckians on domestic violence."

T-shirts that domestic violence victims made at the crisis center were hung in the main reception room.

"The T-shirts are a way victims of domestic violence express their feelings and tell what's in their heart," Brandon said.

One yellow shirt read, "You say to me 'I love you,' and then you beat me black and blue... ha ha, I got away and gone I plan to stay."

Youth Out Front, a group of students from Holmes and Scott high schools, acted out skits illustrating how violence in teens can stem from violence in the home.

The students ended their performance by stating aloud to the audience, "If only you knew, you'd try to understand."

Willie Elliott, professor of social work at Northern Kentucky University, spoke about the role men have in stopping domestic violence. Elliott said he was a former abuser.

"I'm here to tell you there is a chance for (abusers) to change," he said.

Culberson spoke of her daughter's violent encounters with boyfriend Vincent Doan, who is now serving a life sentence for her murder. She said she warned her daughter he was getting more violent, but Carrie protected him and stayed in the relationship.

The 22-year-old Clinton County woman's body has never been found.

"The greatest self-defense you can have is (to) not get in the relationship in the first place," Elliott said. "Fifty percent of women murdered are trying to get out of the relationship."

Culberson said it's too late to help her daughter, but not for others.

"We've got to get the word out, and do what we can do to stop it," she said. "If I can help one young woman - that's why I'm here."

Ziggy,

Ms. Culberson told me that they have not given her a date or anything. They are keeping everything hush hush right now and are not saying a whole lot. She checks with them every single day though. We feel like that if it's being this hush hush that perhaps some leads are being follow up on from this last search. This could take months before we know. It has been a learning experience for our patience. Imagine your anticipation and then multiply that times 15 and that is what we think of each day undecided
Good to see you posting again. You should post more often.

xx Helping Crime Victims' Families 10-8-04
« Reply #10 on: Oct 9th, 2004, 11:55am »

WASHINGTON -- Even today, eight years later, Debra Culberson still wonders what happened to her daughter.
Was her body thrown into the Ohio River, as prosecutors suspect? And, if so, whatever became of her remains?

Not knowing is hard. So is knowing that what's left of Carrie Culberson might be sitting in a box in God-knows-where, just waiting for somebody to come along and claim her remains.

"I have talked to a lot of law enforcement officers and asked them what they did when they found remains,'' said Debra Culberson, who lives in Blanchester. "They said a lot of time they didn't know what to do with them, so they were put into a box and put on a shelf.

"With the possibility of Carrie being thrown into the Ohio River, her remains could have been found from here to wherever the Ohio River flows. So what good is it going to do us? How is it going to help me if Carrie is found in Missouri and put in a box on a shelf?''

Enter Steve Chabot. The Cincinnati congressman is pushing legislation that would require states and local communities that receive federal funding for DNA testing to report test results on unidentified remains to a nationwide missing-persons database.

The bill cleared the House this week and now goes to a conference committee, which must work out differences with a similar version passed earlier in the Senate. If the bill becomes law, it just might spare other parents the kind of anguish that has tormented Debra Culberson for years.

"You imagine so many things,'' she said. "What happened to her might not be as gruesome as what you think. But we hear the rumors of what might have happened, and it all becomes visual. We have to relive this every time we hear a story about what happened to Carrie.''

Carrie Culberson was just 22 when she disappeared one day back in 1996. Her ex-boyfriend, Vincent Doan, was convicted of murdering her a year later and sentenced to life in prison, even though her body was never found. Even after his conviction Doan has invoked his Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination when asked about the location of the body.

Thus, Debra Culberson has been on a mission to find her daughter's missing body and give her a proper burial. Problem is, states aren't required to do DNA testing on unidentified remains. And even when they do, many of them don't report the information to the national database, which means that relatives back in Ohio would have no way of knowing when a loved one's remains turned up in, say, Mississippi.

Frustrated, Culberson turned to Chabot for help. What she wanted was mandatory DNA testing for all unidentified remains. Though the bill that passed this week doesn't go that far, it does make $2 million available to states to test unidentified remains. States that accept the money are required to report the data to the FBI's national missing-persons database.

Currently, the database contains just 237 DNA samples from unidentified remains. And yet, the FBI estimates there are as many as 40,000 remains across the country that have not been identified.

"It's totally unnecessary,'' Culberson said. "With the technology we have today, there is no reason why we should have unidentified remains.''

Chabot's bill takes Culberson one step closer to her goal of mandatory testing. "We'll just have to see where this first step takes us,'' she said.

The more immediate problem is getting the legislation through Congress.

Besides the DNA portion, the bill includes a number of victims' rights provisions that Chabot has been pushing for years, such as guarantees of timely restitution and the right for victims to be included and publicly heard during court proceedings involving their cases.

With Congress expected to be on extended break until after the Nov. 2 elections, time is running out for the bill to win final approval this year. Chabot's office, however, said there's still enough time for the conference committee to finish its work after the elections and for the measure to be approved this year.

Culberson certainly hopes so. "That may be the only way we'll find Carrie,'' she said. But, "I won't give up hope until they find her.''

xx Carrie Culberson's Mother To Appear In TV Ad For..
« Reply #11 on: Oct 22nd, 2004, 06:26am »

The mother of a murdered Blanchester woman is throwing her support behind a local congressman running for re-election.

Debbie Culberson appears in a powerful new campaign ad which airs next week.

Culberson says US Representative Steve Chabot has helped her accomplish something she's been fighting for for years.

Together, she says, they helped pass new legislation that could help bring peace to the families of victims around the country-- and maybe one day, could help find Culberson's daughter.

"Hi, my name's Debbie Culberson. My daughter Carrie was murdered in 1996 and her remains were never found," says Culberson in the ad.

In less than 30 seconds, Culberson shares eight years of heartache.

It's part of a moving political ad airing Monday.

"I went to Congressman Chabot, in the hopes of creating a national database," Culberson says in the ad.

"She came in and told me her story," said Steve Chabot, "and we've all here in this area heard about it on the news, but when you're confronted with it in person, you want to do everything you can to help her."

Chabot met Culberson back in July when she came to him for help.

She wants to make sure whenever a body is found, it's always tested for DNA.

That way, if human remains are discovered anywhere in the country-- she'll know whether or not they could belong to her daughter.

"With the possibility of Carrie being thrown into the Ohio River, she could be anywhere from here to wherever the Ohio River flows," said Culberson. "She could be sitting in a box on somebody's shelf in Missouri. and I thought, well how am I ever going to know that?"

Together, they drafted new legislation which provides funding for local law enforcement, to test remains and enter them into a national database.

"We're not unfortunately going to be able to bring her daughter back, but we hope some day we might be able to identify her, but also help other people who might be in this situation," said Chabot.

"He's working for the victims, and that's really huge for those of us that are victims," said Culberson, "so I support him in every way I can."

Culberson is expected to be there with the president when he signs the DNA initiative into law.

The date of when this will air is unclear at this time. Any updates to the completion of the show and it's air date will be posted immediately. I'd like to also take this opportunity to thank AETV for their consideration in doing the story on Carrie's case.

Sources from AETV tell us that the filming of the show regarding Carrie Culberson's disappearance and the murder trial of Vincent Doan will be a combination of both sides of the story. That means that AETV will be at Mansfield Correctional facility next week interviewing Vince as he has agreed to participate in the documentary. At this time there is no date that we can give you all when this will air. The show title, length of the broadcast have not been made available yet. Other than the filming taking place next week, is all we know.

Thanks to Trina at AETV. We cannot express how happy we are to get American Justice to feature Carrie.
