My name is Rubye Hayden and my sister is Carmen Tolbert. I live in Seattle Washington and came down on Saturday after the Las Vegas Police Department came and spoke with my mother and 14 year old niece. They were told that there was a body in the desert and the body could possibly be my sister. However they told my mother that they did not have a positive ID. They said they woud return on
Tuesday with a report from the coroner. In the meantime as early as July fourth they went around the neighborhood telling all of my mothers neighbors and friends that the body they found was Carmen. Why not tell my mother the next of kin. Why does my 14 year old niece have to hear it from neighbors. Why do we get condolence calls from people when we were still holding out hope? Why does my sisters daughter serving in Afghanistan have to read about her mothers death on the internet! I am from Seattle and we do things a little different there. We would never allow the next of kin be treated in such a imapproiate way. Carmen was my baby sister and I love her so very much. I was holding out hope but also waiting for the police department to notify us the next of kin not the local news stations. How dare you Las Vegas Police department treat my family so shably at the time that they would need your help the most!

I agree with Mrs. Hayden. That is terrible how the Las Vegas Police Dept. is handling this case. They don't seem to be seeking justice at all for this crime. And its a shame the the family of the victim is being treated so poorly especially during their time of grievance. I hope that the LVPD get it together, quick, fast and in a hurry and solve this mystery and try to bring some closure to Carmen Tolbert's family and loved ones.
