Margaret & William Patterson, Episode 3: Indiscretions

El Paso County Sheriff’s Office Investigators didn’t necessarily uncover any tangible evidence in the 1957 disappearances of Margaret and William Patterson but circumstantial evidence, and scenarios that this evidence allows, seems endless. They found some things about William’s personal life that they couldn’t ignore…things that began painting a different picture of the couple than what associates and employees of the Patterson’s originally let on to. Obviously, though, even after shocking accusations in the 1980s and a witness coming forward even later than that, police couldn’t find the pieces that allow for a clear theory as to what happened to Margaret and William.

    Wow, Very Interesting! William Patterson was my Uncle. He was my Mother’s Brother. I was 3 years old when all this happened. We were told that they had vanished but not much more than that. So it was very interesting to hear all the details that you laid out and some of the possible scenarios you discussed.

    Thank you for taking the time to create the Podcast!

    As a postscript, we were contacted by the San Bernadino County Sheriff Dept in California to provide a DNA sample because they had a John Doe they thought could have been Uncle Pat There was a pocket watch that had is initials found on the body when they exhumed it. Unfortunately there was not a positive match.
