YES.... this one kills me. Here you had a missing person who seemingly had everything to look forward to. Even though his mom had passed away, he was a successful medical student and had a good relationship with the rest of his family and his girlfriend. I can literally think of no reason why a person would walk away from all that.

Plus, in the middle of a night out drinking with friends is the most utterly bizarre time to walk away from his life.

But, other than him being missing, there are absolutely no indications of foul play that I've heard about. There are no reports he had an altercation with anyone the night he disappeared nor were there any reports that anyone had any reason to want to harm him.

This case is just a pure head-scratcher.

This case struck a sharper chord with me than most. I think this had a lot to do with how the Disappeared episode present Patty as a person. It really struck a chord because she reminded me in a lot of ways of women in my family. I saw someone who was driven, motivated and self-made while at the same time vulnerable, kind and decent.

Such a tragedy.
Completely agree. She reminded me a bit of myself- driven but would do anything to help out anyone, including lending money to someone she trusted. Disappeared didn't present her in the light that she could've been a " home wrecker". They presented her as a person, as you said

Meg, I have read you live in the East TN area. My dad lives near Cumberland Gap, and although it was solves, it was on the show Murder in a Small Town. It was about Harvey Fuson, who was killed inside of the drug store in CG. His daughter married the son of my aunts fiancÚ, and my dad went to high school with Harvey. Small world!

Interesting! I love that area around CG.

It is beautiful, but I'm a city Girl at heart.

I've also been to where Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom were killed. It was on our way to his house after he picked me up at the airport. I know the house was torn down and there's a memorial cross there now, but I had to pay my respects

We were at UT at the same time and I was in ROTC with a guy who knew both of them well. I still don't know several of the details about their murders, because what little I did learn disturbed me so much I decided not to go any further.

I remember years ago my dad catching a local news story about the trial and mentioning the look in Channon Christian's father's eyes--like a man on fire.

I'm not going to share the details then, except to say I was born and raised in the metro Detroit area, and other than Stephen Grant murdering and dismembering his wife, Channon and Chris's murders were the most gruesome I've ever read about in recent years. Obviously it's not in the greatest part of Knoxville where they were killed ( right off Broadway), but that's relative the worst part of Kville doesn't even compare to the worst part of Detroit. But how human beings can do that to one another disgusts me

I want to go see the area where Blair Adams died next time I'm down which will be this spring. Do you know the whereabouts of that?

Apparently it had been only three weeks since his mother died of cancer when Brian disappeared. I can imagine that must have been horribly painful. But I can't imagine being so distraught over losing one family member that you decide to abandon the rest of your family to start a new life.

Last year when an article was posted on the ten year anniversary of his disappearance, this was mentioned in regards to Brian's girlfriend at the time...

Unlike most others familiar with the case, Alexis doesn't believe in one theory. She now is numb to emotions inherent in the case, and her continued interest is rooted more in curiosity.

Looking back, she finds it odd that a few days before that night in the bar, Brian told her to move on and find someone else, because he was struggling with his mom's death. And that a couple of weeks before that, he asked her to "just go away" with him.


Little tidbits but it throws out the possibility that his mother's death might have messed him up more than originally thought. Although you would think there would be some trace of him in the decade since.

To me, the bigger mystery is still how he got out of the bar. Unless I haven't read the right sources, other nearby buildings with security cameras would have caught him leaving the back exit to that building.

I don't see how one cannot be disgusted or angered by such brutal crimes, especially the murders of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian. The perpetrators in that case are bunch of sick animals that need to be put to sleep.

Sweet - thank you! I'm lucky to have a dad that has always encouraged my fascination with true crime stuff. We will hit there after he gets me at the airport!

I completely agree, and I not a death penalty supporter. What got me is the female that was the ringleader. The lack of empathy or care for another human is disgusting

I'm very late to this case. I didn't hear about it until this thread so I looked it up and....I can't even find the right words to describe how disgusting it is.

Lack of empathy is an excellent fact to bring up. But humans putting other humans through days of torture like that before finally "finishing the job," makes me wonder about what other crimes these people could have done. Surely they must have killed before.
