4 Teenagers DeadEdit
In I'll Always Know What You Did Last Summer, Broken Ridge Colorado's musician and later Benjamin Willis's victim compiled information on his killings proving Karla's death following the Bahamas Massacre perpetrated by him and his son, William Willis.
The article of the Bahamas murders reads the secondary headline "4 Teenagers Dead," implying her later death possibly even before Julie's. The article substantiates as there was only four teenagers in whole on the island that were killed by Ben Willis: Julie James, Tyrell Martin, Karla Wilson and eventually Ray Bronson. Karla, however--unlike her boyfriend Tyrell--survived the Bahamas, attempts escaping back to Southport where she was either killed before or after Julie James and Ray Bronson.
William Willis and Ben Willis dumped her body in the sea and in Last Summer 3D, Reece Matthews went to her funeral after they found her 2 days before. It is possible that Karla was his cousin. But, during the beginning of the movie, Julie and Ray were murdered by Ben Wills on July 4, 2011. Julie and Ray will be mentioned throughout the movie, but only Karla will make an appearance.
It was revealed that Karla replaced her body with a decoy and escaped on a returning ferry and made it to the mainland. Upon coming back to Southport, she realized that Julie and Ray were both eventuallh murdered by the Fisherman. Knowing it wasn't safe to stay, she moved away to South Carolina, but was drawn back to Southport by the firs Herman threatening to kill fellow survivor, Resse Matthews. Once again, she survived when she and Reece Matthews killed Ben Willis and threw his body in the ocean. A month later, Reece Matthews was murdered, making Karla one of the sole survivors of the massacres, as it is still unknown what happened to Amber Willams, whether she survived or not.
