Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian female. Brown hair, brown eyes. Corrine has scars on her forehead, the right side of her lower lip, and near her left eye. The tip of her left ring finger is missing. She has a mole on the left side of her lower back. Corrine's ears are pierced, but she was not wearing earrings at the time of her disappearance. She has a cowlick on the right side of her head.
Details of Disappearance Corrine was last seen at approximately 7:30 p.m. on June 1, 1992 as she went to play in Skyline Park near her family's residence in Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota.
Her father told authorities that Corrine's two older brothers walked to the park to bring her back home after she had been gone for approximately five minutes. The child was nowhere to be found and has never been heard from again. Corrine's mother and stepfather reported her as a missing person two hours after she was last seen.
A child playing in the park told authorities that he believed he saw Corrine speaking with an unidentified man during the evening. The boy said that he saw a girl matching her description petting the man's dog. It has never been verified that the girl was in fact Corrine.
Authorities viewed Corrine's family's friend, Robert Guevara, as the main suspect in her disappearance from the onset of their investigation. He often stayed overnight at the family's home at their invitation when he was intoxicated. Witnesses told authorities that Guevara often slept in the same bed as Corrine. A photo of Guevara is posted with this case summary.
Guevara was at Corrine's home the day she was reported as a missing child, and police dogs tracked her scent to his home after her disappearance. He was charged with her kidnapping, rape and murder on June 5, 1992, four days after Corrine disappeared.
Defense witnesses argued at Guevara's trial that his locker and trailer were not secured and that the evidence could have been planted by unknown person(s) in order to frame Guevara for Corrine's disappearance.
Guevara's attorneys theorized that Williams wanted to sell her daughter or arrange for her kidnapping to collect the anticipated ransom.
Minnesota law did not allow full usage of DNA evidence at trials in 1992; the law has since been revised. As a result, Guevara was acquitted of all charges in connection with Corrine's case. He has continued to maintain his innocence throughout the years.
Corrine's case remains unsolved, although she was declared legally dead in 1994. She has never been located.
