Ecklund’s age was verified by Robert Young, Mark Muir, and Dr. L. Stephen Coles (GRG), as well as Dr. Andrew Holmes and Jimmy Lindberg (ESO), and was validated by each organisation on 16 August 2013 and 23 August 2022 respectively.

Ecklund was initially believed to have died on 12 March 2014. However, evidence discovered by the ESO proved that she actually died one day later.
