Carmen Hays was an artist friend of Bettie Petrowski.


At some point she was sent to the institution where she would spend her time painting. When she wasn't painting, she was put into a group with Zelda Amatuzzi.

In 1954, she met Bettie and her son when she was committed and later became friends, along with Anton de la Rosa.

After Bettie died, Carmen took over the identity and got out of the asylum. Fifty years later, she died.
