I read the above article on the disappearance of Patti Adkins. I just watched the program, Disappearance, on Investigation Discovery. My heart breaks for her family and her daughter. It is obvious that her married lover is responsible. Can't this case be resolved? From watching the program they were able to prove that she was in the bed of the truck under the cover (proving he is a liar), so I am perplexed as to why there hasn't been any further information that has lead to this man being charged. They did comment on DNA recovered and that they are hoping to test it soon. Who is this man? Why hasn't he been named in the article or on the program? Has his life been made hell in the town or at Honda? I felt that the program just didn't elaborate on this much. It is pretty clear that he is lying about his relationship with her. I hope Patti's family finds some peace, especially her daughter. They deserve justice and some resolution. So tragic, so horrible and just not right.

I have been following this case as well and just watched the show. Heartbreaking! The guys last name is Flowers but not 100% on the first name.

I just got done watching the show Disappeared and feel bad for the family not having closure for Patti. I am sure that the poorly poured left over concrete at the back door of the married guys house is directly connected to the project site where Patti's body is buried and where he also worked on his time off.That much left over concrete would be hard to explain and would have to be disposed of some way. I hope this information helps and helps the family find closure. God Bless Them

You know what you say makes sense. It would be hard to explain the excess concrete that was left over. I wonder if, like you surmise, Patti's body is buried at the construction project the man was involved in at the time, and that he, and whoever helped him dispose of the body, had Patti's blood smell on them when they poured that concrete at that back door of his house. That would explain why the dog went ballistic. I wonder too if the detectives took a dog to that construction site the guy was currently involved with.

Here's my take: Flowers wife is living in la-la land. Flowers not only uses Patti emotionally, but takes Patti for her hard earned nest egg; but when she becomes too attached, or threatens to tell his wife, he has to get rid of her. I hope all the people in Marysville dog him until he cracks. But if he's the sociopath he appears to be, it won't matter. Pure evil!

I agree with "Construction Guy". The concrete is somehow involved. And it was dumped there quick because there was no form to it. My bro-in-law does concrete and he said it costs quite a bit to have that much "leftover".

1) There is no way this guy received $90,000 and never put it in a bank AND his wife never learned about it. I'm betting the wife knows about the money and she was in on getting rid of Patti.

2) Actually, that isn't a lot of concrete to be left over from a construction project, BUT...I'm betting this was left over from a mix-it-yourself bag of concrete he probably bought from a Home Depot or similar store. I'm betting he made up some kind of weight to sink her body and this was left over from the mix so he just poured it on the ground next to his house - maybe its a low spot where water stands after a rain or something like that, not important - police need to check the area stores where you can buy mix-it-yourself concrete and see if he is on tape or used a credit card, try to establish a time line for when the concrete was purchased. Police need to re-check all the lakes, ponds, rivers within reasonable driving distance where a body could be sunk. My money is she is in the water. Probably too late now - I don't know what might be left over of a body in water after all this time.

Not to get on her back too much, but Patti left a trail of bad judgement. People with very poor judgement are pretty much gonna die if they come across a predator because they don't read the signs most of us would read.

Remember, she was 29 years old and had a good job.

That's too old to be loaning out $90,000 to a married man, there is no good reason for that poor judgement.

That's too old to be climbing into the bed of a truck under a tonneau cover to sneek off with a married man.

That's too old to be leaving on a week-long vacation with a married man to a destination unknown, told before hand don't bring a cell phone, told before hand don't bring any clothes.

Anyone who can't smell that is just couting their days until their date with destiny.

Don't get me wrong. I'd personally string this guy up if given a chance. But all you ladies out there, clear your minds....use your heads. If you chronically make poor decisions about men in your life, you better stop and think before your get yourself killed.

And if you have a sister or daughter who makes bad relationship decisions, you'd better watch them closely.

Just sayin'.....

well i think you are wrong i think everyone on earth has used poor judgment when it comes to love...and i think that if you have worked with someone everyday for that amount of time i dont believe that your gonna believe that your gonna be killed.She was a younge lady who fell in love and wanted her happy ending.Maybe she was pregnet?i feel so bad for her sisters and daughter.The guy said he had no realationship with this girl at all and he had never been with her then why find her blood in his truck that should have been enough to arrest him..I hope that her remains will be found so her family can get some peace and she can get some justice..

I watched disappeared last night and am outraged that this man still is walking free! Hind sight is always 20/20.....the truth always comes out....and he will get his in the end. His wife is either a complete idiot or totally involved. I think it is clear that he is a murderer...and we will all cheer when there is enough evidence to prove so!

what town was the boyfriend and his business located? I don't think it was in the Marysville area or the town folk here would be all in the know. I agree with "the wife was involved" she is far from clueless. I believe she was in on it and knew her husband swindled this young lady out of 90k. It is a shame and I hope it is hell for them waiting on when and I did say WHEN the police are going to come to their door and lock them away! I pray for that day to come for closure for her family.

I also saw this Disappeared episode. The boyfriend (if he is the cause and I'd bet the mortgage he is) was very devious and deceitful in keeping the relationship quiet and accepting all that money and not allowing a paper trail to be created. He also didn't want anyone to know where they were going. I take it he stressed "secrecy" in their relationship to have "plausible deny-ability" in later saying he didn't even know her beyond work. And he obviously had planned this whole thing down to Perry Mason detail. But I thought they had a DNA process where a tiny amount could be copied and recopied (millions of times) to make a larger amount that could then be tested. Hope the family one day finds peace.

"But I thought they had a DNA process where a tiny amount could be copied and recopied (millions of times) to make a larger amount that could then be tested."

They do. I watch a ton of forensics shows and that was the first thing that I thought of when he mentioned it being too small of a sample. Of course, I don't believe that was available back in 2001 when she first disappeared but I don't see why there's no reason why they can't test it now. Assuming that they preserved the sample correctly.

"Remember, she was 29 years old and had a good job.

That's too old to be loaning out $90,000 to a married man, there is no good reason for that poor judgement.

That's too old to be climbing into the bed of a truck under a tonneau cover to sneek off with a married man.

I said the same thing. I hate to speak ill of (what I believe to be) the dead but damn. There were red flags all over this "vacation." He's borrowed all of this money from her but suddenly he's going to buy her a week's worth of clothes. Huh? Why? Are the clothes in Canada that special?

He was smart not to deposit any of the money in his bank account but then again, he could've been hiding it from his wife. I wonder where he put it?
