Karen was last seen at approx. 10:30pm at her residence near the 800 block of Weghorst St. on December 27, 2000. Her son told police that Karen's ex husband, Steven Halcomb, was sitting in the living room with Karen the night she was last seen. She appeared to be in a drug-induced sleepiness. Her two children said they didn't hear any suspicious activity that night. They reported her missing the next morning when she couldn't be found and she missed an appointment later that day. Karen had felt threatened by Halcomb. He vanished the same day she was reported missing and he didn't report for work the next day. His vehicle, a 1983 light blue Ford LTD Indiana plates 95W7801, was also missing. He turned himself in on January 11, 2001 after violating parole in California. His vehicle was searched for evidence, nothing was found, and he denied involvement. Halcomb was convicted and sentenced for Karen's death in December 2004. He maintains his innocence and Karen's body has never been found.
