Was Carol Wayne murdered?

Somehow she ended-up dead in shallow water, fully clothed.

Surely she would have floated.

Yet another innocent female victim of Johnny Carson's casting couch, used then cast aside.

Just like Joan Rivers.

Wow I remember her. I didn’t know she died in 1985 and in such a mysterious manner.

I remember the day or a few days after she died they still ran a rerun with her. She joked about swimming/floating too. I'm a little vague on it all but I remember it happening.

After losing the Carson gig she was really hard up for money. She was escorting though I don't know if the guy who left her for dead was a john. He was also involved with Art Linkletter's daughter's death.

Somewhere or other I saw nobody would claim her body so ultimately Pat McCormick (from Smokey and the Bandit) paid to bring her home for burial.

Why'd Carson fire her?

I remember her from Celebrity Sweepstakes. Despite the dumb blonde act she was actually quite smart and was the go to celeb people would pick to win.

We had a thread on Carol Wayne a few years ago, and I remember reading that the person with Diane Linkletter when she died in 1969 was the same person Carol Wayne was staying at the hotel with, when she died. It's a guy named Edward Durston, and no one is sure if it's the shlock-movie director, or a used car salesman with a similar name. Strange story.

Carson didn’t fire her. His show was cut from 90 minutes to 60 minutes (which he wanted). The shortened running time meant fewer appearances for Wayne in these kinds of skits.

Her brother, Bruce, should pour his billion$ into finding out what really happened.
