Before Carlson’s body was found, Stockton Police arrested 25-year-old Jason Gilley in connection with Carlson’s disappearance after, they say, he gave “inconsistent” statements. Police say Carlson knew Gilley for about a week before she disappeared the night of Aug. 7. They believe the night she went missing, Dalene willingly left Finnegan’s Bar and Grill with Gilley. A short time later, cameras at a nearby Food For Less captured the pair shopping. Police arrested him on charges of kidnapping and holding Dalene against her will, but he was later released for lack of evidence. At the time, detectives searched Gilley’s home and car, but found no evidence pointing to Dalene’s whereabouts.
