Have to agree w/the incompetent police work. WHY would a drop of her blood and cat hairs be found in the back of his truck, under the tarp (matching what Patti told friends that she'd be hiding under there per her and Brians plans)?!?!?!

Why weren't those findings the "smoking gun?". Furthermore BRIAN FLOWERS- if you just casually knew her from work (LIAR), why was her BLOOD drop found in the back of YOUR truck?!

Brian Flowers may not be in prison but surely (hopefully) he's living in prison in his mind, racked with guilt and paranoia.

If all the hondroids care so much about Ms Forbes, than why not in going on 10+ years don't they chip-in a penny each and pay the MJT the $75 they charge me to place a small obit for my kin?

This woman was never real to any of us.
The 1st & last news we ever heard of her was her trobled life, just like Honda associates Barry Satta & James Ferguson..etc.
Who knows where they get these people or who they are?

If you are a friend of Brian's Melissa, why don't you ask the questions everyone on this board wants to know and get back to us? What if it was your sister, wouldn't you want answers?

I have a better idea, and I say this respectully. Why don't you call Marcia Pitts, Patti's sister and tell her you aren't taking sides, actually you believe in your friend Brian, but what would the family like to know if you could get him to talk. You have to admit, and unlike someone who said you weren't intelligent, I don't get that at all from your writings, there are a lot of questions from why didn't he admit knowing her to what was the concrete for and why did he buy that expensive truck cover coincidentally right before she told people she was to hide under it, and not use it again? Google Sandra Bertolas from Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin (Milwaukee). Very similar situation...

Hard to believe you would have $90,000 extra dollars, whether in the space of 2 years or not, and your spouse not know about it...

To Melissa, Brian Flower's friend. Just because he has thus far gotten away with murder does not make him not a murderer. From what I have read and seen, it seems he obviously killed her. If not, why would he deny being involved with her when obviously people knew they were involved? Makes no sense what so ever. If you are an innocent person, better to admit the affair to his unsuspecting, hmm right, wife than have the world believe you are a murderer. Technology will catch up with him and he will pay. If that doesn't happen in this life, which I think they could charge him now and get a conviction, then I actually feel for him when he leaves this life behind. Obviously he has no conscience so believing he is losing sleep is ridiculous but he WILL pay, one way or another.

You only know what the tv has shown and every thing that has been shown is made up by Patti sister. I feel sorry for her family. I love how everyone says in this lifetime. Are you the one who is to judge? NO

Fooling around with a married man. I am sorry but sin has its consequences.

Wake up and smell the coffee Melissa! Sorry to be so blunt, but how would you feel if this was your sister. Try to find the truth instead of blindly defending the only credible suspect whose LIES made him, the only credible suspect.

What if he gave her a shot and put her in a container, fill it with quick set cement and drove to his familiar fishing spot, dump her body with help from a friend?
The pile of dried cement in his backyard should contained her DNA or even her hair. The truck should be the most crucial evidence too.
Missed all?

To the family of Patti Adkins, I am so sorry for your loss. I too know what it is like to lose a sibling. My brother died in 2000 and my sister passed a few years ago, she was 33. Tonight I viewed a program "Disappeared". From the evidence provided by the States atty, it is clearly evident what happened. It pains me to read some of the comments posted. Do some of you not have a heart? To read someone post that sin has consequences is so inadequate and juvenile. It just says volumes about how cold and uneducated you are. This young woman was a class act. It is obvious to me that Patti was brought up in a lovimg home with wonderful parents and siblings. If there is anything I can do/ whether fundraising or financially, please let me know. Again, I am so sorry for your loss and I hope you find peace in your good memories. Kiss kiss love my sis. Priceless!
