Pat was last seen at his job in Kirkland on Monday, while his wife at 1300 hours on that same day.  Neighbors called Police on Tuesday, when Monique who had other plans did not show up.  Pat did not call or show up for work the next day either.  His brother says that he usually calls and this is so out-of-character for him.

Police originally called the disappearances as suspicious.   Detectives now believe that the couple may be victims of Homicidal violence according to evidence left at the remote wooded location where their two vehicles had been dumped and at the former home of one of the suspects.

EVIDENCE DOES NOT LIE

Detectives believe the couple may be victims of homicidal violence due to the evidence collected from the two vehicles that had been dumped in a remote, wooded area about 15 miles from the couple’s home.  Access to the vehicles originally was delayed due to the very steep and rocky terrain.  The vehicles have since been towed from the dump site.

Police also found evidence at the former John Reed’s home near where the couple resided.
