Overview of Karol Sullens
Karol Sullens was last seen at the Valley of The Dolls nightclub on 7th Street in Galena, Kansas on August 31, 1991.
Karol was was employed as an exotic dancer at the Valley of The Dolls nightclub. In the evening, when she went outside for her break, she was seen speaking to an unidentified male near the man's dark-colored pickup truck, which was parked nearby. She has not been seen or heard from since.
Authorities believe that Karol died of a drug overdose at some point during the night she vanished, and that her body was buried by her drug suppliers. Extensive searches in Kansas and Oklahoma have produced no clues as to her whereabouts; however, Donald D. Kidwell was charged in connection with Carol's case in 2001. Donald E. Davis was charged with aggravated battery in Carol's case in 2001, and he cooperated with authorities in regards to their case against Kidwell.
In 2002, Kidwell reached a plea agreement with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to battery and obstruction of official duty. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison and fined $1,500. Kidwell told the court that he did not sexually assault Sullens and did not mean to cause her death, but he admitted he was responsible.
Investigators are continuing to search for her remains, but there are many different theories about the location of her body.
