Eve Carson was born in Danville, Illinois in 1953, and has lived in the Midwest most of her life. She is a graduate of Purdue University with a degree in economics and industrial management. She was a supervisor for General Motors and a marketing representative for IBM before taking time to be a stay-at-home mom with her daughters. Eve married Joan Webster’s brother, Steve, on January 5, 1980, and she was part of the immediate family when Joan disappeared. As a mother, Eve was active in the schools and her girl’s activities. She volunteered time and skills to numerous organizations, fundraising, and promoting a positive environment for her children. Ms. Carson earned the reputation for speaking out when serious circumstances warranted a voice and a backbone to stand up against abuse. Unfortunately, in our society, Eve learned blowing a whistle often has a personal cost. She brings a unique insight into the enigmatic Webster family and the devastating events that have spanned more than a quarter century. Trauma continued to plague members of the Webster family. Without justification, Eve found herself in Joan’s shoes, alienated from her children, and missing from their lives. Joan’s blood relatives devalued and discarded a member of their family. Repeated history and a horrifying allegation were the catalysts for Ms. Carson to unravel the lingering mystery of Joan’s loss. When Tim Burke published events surrounding Joan’s unresolved case in 2008, Eve pressed to recover documents, interview witnesses, and research the case. Insight, instinct, and memory, corroborated in files, unveiled a complex and secretive manipulation of Joan’s murder investigation. The search for truthful answers followed a path filled with obstructions and exposed evidence of public corruption. Examining a cold murder case opened new avenues Eve would like to share with others who have suffered devastating tragedy. Writing, interviews, and presenting facts are tools to shatter the silence and dispel myths. Too often, society blames the victims. Ms. Carson undertook a daunting challenge, fighting a system that obscured justice in the brutal murder of a loved one. Supported with facts documented in files, she persevered through personal attacks. Eve hopes her experiences will lead to stronger sunshine laws that remove control from those who fail to protect the vulnerable.
