Sullens disappeared on the night of August 31, 1991 from a Galena, Kansas night club. She was outside reportedly with a man or a couple of men near a truck in the parking lot and that was the last time she was seen alive. Although her body has not been discovered, in 2002 Donald D. Kidwell was sentenced for his role in her death.

“Through the offer of this privately funded $20,000.00 reward,” said Sheriff David Groves, “we are hopeful – and Karol’s family is hopeful – someone with direct knowledge as to the location of her body will find the courage to come forward at this time,”
