The MISSING Pattersons

In March of 1957, a married couple who resided in El Paso, Texas suddenly “vanished.” No clue was left as to why and how they disappeared, even among their family and friends. In the proceeding years, the mystery of their disappearance grew into El Paso lore. Did the Patterson’s, who were business owners, have a double-life? Were they murdered? No one knows for sure to this very day. EP History has compiled newspaper articles from the El Paso Herald-Post, beginning with the first reports of the Patterson’s strange disappearance in 1957, to follow-up articles written in the mid-1960s. Those latter articles will be posted soon.
