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.

Carlson’s remains were discovered near Lone Tree Road and Sexton Road in rural San Joaquin County, a few miles outside of Escalon, on Saturday, October 16. Stockton police confirmed the remains were Carlson’s the next day. Jacob Evangelisti, who said he was Carlson’s boyfriend, said Carlson called him nine times from Gilley’s residence that night she disappeared, asking if she could come over. Evangelisti said Carlson insisted on walking to his apartment by herself, but she never showed up.
