    [​IMG]

    Mediapolis in Des Moines County
    Audrey “Eileen” (Watson) Dill, 32, of Mediapolis, Iowa, was reported missing to the Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office in Burlington on Friday, August 18, 1978.

    She was last seen wearing blue jeans and a blouse, and described as a 5-foot-3 white female with brown hair, blue eyes, and weighing 110 pounds.

    Officials classified her disappearance as “Involuntary,” which describes a person of any age who is missing under circumstances indicating the disappearance was not voluntary — i.e. an abduction or kidnapping.

    Petition for Conservatorship Filed
    Though officials suspected foul play in Eileen’s disappearance, her mother, Marion Edith Watson, held out hope her daughter would return.

    Two months after Eileen went missing, Mrs. Watson filed a petition in the Iowa District Court for Henry County to be named conservator over all property belonging to her daughter. If Eileen was still alive, the notice to appear might prove effective in drawing her daughter home.

    The original notice of intent for Probate No. 14410 was published in area newspapers on Oct. 19, Oct. 26, and Nov. 2, 1978. Unless Eileen or her attorney appeared in court to defend and or dispute the petition by Nov. 22, 1978, conservatorship over all Eileen’s property would be granted to her mother.

    Eileen did not appear in court and later was presumed deceased.

    The United States Social Security Death Index lists Audrey Eileen Dill’s date of death as Tuesday, August 15, 1978.

    According to the NamUs Missing Persons Database, dental information and charting is available and entered in Ms. Dill’s case.

    A DNA sample has been submitted and tests are complete.

    About Eileen Dill
    Audrey Eileen (Watson) Dill was born April 8, 1946, to Virgil “Everett” and Marion Edith (Garmoe) Watson.

    In addition to her parents, she was survived by two brothers, Dean and Virgil “Allen” Watson; and two sisters, Marilyn Jean and Cheryl.

    She was preceded in death by a sister, Lois Elizabeth Watson.

    Eileen’s sister Marilyn Jean passed away in July 2000.

    Eileen’s father died in May 2005, and her brother Virgil “Allen” passed away in August 2012.

Eric Blodgett at the Des Moines County Sheriff’s Office at 319-753-8212 or the Missing Person Information Clearinghouse / Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation at 1-800-346-5507.
