Culberson dated Vincent Doan (photo far right) from 1994 to 1996 in their hometown of Blanchester, Ohio. Their relationship was extremely volatile and abusive.  Culberson filed a criminal complaint of misdemeanor assault against Doan during the summer of 1996 after he allegedly hit her on the head with a space heater, requiring Culberson to receive five surgical staples to close the wound. Culberson and Doan were scheduled to appear at a court hearing in early September 1996 regarding the complaint. Culberson's family told authorities that Doan abducted her and held her at gunpoint for five hours on August 25, three days before she disappeared. Culberson was last seen at approximately 11:30 p.m. on August 28, 1996. She was dropped off at her residence after attending a volleyball game with two friends. One of her neighbors says she left the house in her car a few minutes after arriving. Culberson has never been heard from again and her red 1989 Honda CRX (photo of her car and license plate are above) disappeared with her. She was missed at 6:00 a.m. the next morning when her mother noticed that her car was not in the driveway. Doan was tried and found guilty of one count of aggravated murder and three counts of kidnapping, determining that Doan kidnapped or tried to kidnap Culberson and she died as a result.  Doan was sentenced to life without parole for the murder and nine years for the kidnapping. Culberson and her car have not been found.
