Really!!! This is the type of comment you should keep to your self! You have made your self sound like an uneducated fool! May you be forgiven the day you meet your maker! I knew Patti very well and you are not the kind of company she would keep. So please for the sake of her daughter do not post this kind of nonsense again. Your opinion is best kept to yourself.

just saw this show on tv, absolutely tragic, that that guy with or without his wife got away with murder. Made me sick, i hope he rots in hell since there doesnt seem to be anyway to get justice for her in this life.........

I agree with you about that horrible statement ...... Its been too long that the co worker boyfriend has been free. What about her cat hairs that were found on the cover of his flatbed. It's pathetic police work.

its over for you brian, ive been hired to put enough evidence together to get you indicted and my job is done, you will be indicted in the near future and tried in a court of law.may god have mercy on your soul. when convicted you will never wake up a free man again in your lifetime.you will be told when to eat and when to sleep, when to go to sleep and when to wake up.you will be surrounded by men who have lost daughters to different kinds of death and each man will accuse you of killing their daughters and you will face hell in a cell.you will suffer like no other human has ever experienced.

I too watched the show Disappeared last night. It's so painfully obvious her married boyfriend is guilty as sin. I too wonder how he can live with that guilt. What a WASTE of human flesh. I wonder if he and his wife are still together and if he's still even in the area?! He's a killer on the loose and I'd be VERY concerned fir the safety of my loved ones if I lived near him. He sounds like a narcissistic, sociopath w/borderline personality disorder. FRIGHTENING!!!

Watch the show Disappeared last night. I am glad the Union County Sheriff Department is keeping this story alive by taping this segment. This is how to keep it out there for the killer or killers to know they have not given up on Patti Alkins and her family.
They should be beyond frantic by now knowing people know the so called boyfriend name, etc. Do you suppose they get together to keep there story of events straight. The truth will come out. Hopefully they are being watch by law enforcement about there every day coming and going. This should send a chill down there backs just knowing people are watching, listening, etc.

Did brians mom leave him with his sister than last be seen or heard from when she punched the timeclock at a factory somewhere at 10 seconds past midnight?
Does brian know who his dad is?
Will it take over 10 years to find the anwser to the mystery?

Stay tuned for a commercial break.

Brian used to own a garage in or near ada - hope the police still know where he is so when they do get enough evidence to convict him they wont have to search for him. What a sad tragic end for her entire family but especially for her daughter. I hope they can find Patti's remains to have closure.

Give it a rest?! HOW when there is no closure for Patti's loved ones!!! You must be a friend or family of the not yet caught killer, Brian Flowers? If so, please tell him to let someone know where he put Patti's remains after he murdered her so we can have some closure.

Yes I am a friend of Brians always will be. and YES GIVE IT A REST! Sick of all the lies and talk about Brian. People get on to start a bunch of stuff,and have no facts on anything. The way I look at it, the cops talked to him, hes not in jail, he is innocent in my eyes.
