Her Facebook was recently deleted or set to private. However, Google still has the Facebook public search listing from May 15, 2009 in its Cache:http://www.facebook.com/profile/pic....3ALcS3Qg%2C%2C
How I tracked it down:
The blog real world dc watch ( real world dc watch) has numerous pictures up in its July 6th post of Callie at the RW house, wearing a red SHSU t-shirt. If you google SHSU, you can see it stands for Sam Houston State University.
After a quick search on Facebook of the name 'Callie' in the 'SHSU' network, I came across a different Callie that I initially believed to be RW Callie. Googling that Callie showed me she clearly was not RW Callie, but brought me to an SHSU Dean's List ( http://www.shsu.edu/~reg_www/graduation/documents/S08DeanList.pdf
) from Spring 2008 that listed a few Callies. Google brought up the cache for Callie Walker's Facebook public search listing and it was a clear match, and Walker is listed as a 'fan' of Sam Houston State University. Further searching brought about additional info, such as the dancing interest, but will not publish those links.
And that, my friends, is how you sleuth.
Bing.com's 6/22 cache of the Facebook public search listing: Callie Walker | Facebook
Also, educated guess this is her twitter (many SHSU friends): Callie Walker (msCALLIE) on Twitter
