    this article says the FBI is investigating the other three deaths and the police chief said its "unclear" if there is a connection to Abby's disappearance.

    North Carolina mystery: Woman missing in town where 3 found dead

    Capt. Terry Parker of the Lumberton Police told CBS News' Crimesider that investigators do not think that Patterson's disappearance is related the deaths of Megan Ann Oxendine, 28, Christina Bennett, 32, and Rhonda Jones, 36, who were all found dead in an area between East Fifth and East Ninth streets. WNCN reports that Bennett and Jones' bodies were discovered April 18 and Oxedine's on June 3.

    Bennett's body was found in a house. Jones' body was in a trash can. And Oxendine's body was behind a house.
    Parker said that although autopsies of the women's bodies have been completed, the bodies were so badly decomposed that a medical examiner has not yet determined their causes of death.
    "We aren't sure if (the three women's deaths) are related, but we are considering it," Parker said in June.
    The FBI is assisting in the investigation into the women's deaths. Lumberton, located in between Wilmington and Charlotte, has about 21,000 people.

    Hmmmm. Something seems off here? I don't think I'm the only one to take notice. Watch and tell me what you think.

    Parker said that before she disappeared, Patterson had been discharged from drug rehab and come to town to visit her mom. He said she called an acquaintance to pick her up and has not been heard from since. He called the case an "active missing person" investigation and said they have "no information, not even a rumor" that Patterson is deceased.

    WNCN reports that authorities are offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads them to Patterson.

    BBM. So much for the denials of drug use. I suspect she is connected to the others, JMO. Hope I'm wrong. Incredibly sad.

    It must not have been a very long rehab program

    Maybe that was when she returned to Jacksonville? If so, she was there for 2 weeks.

    The mother of one of the earlier Victims stated that she was battling drug addiction. http://www.fayobserver.com/news/2017...d-in-trash-can. Another of the earlier victims was friends with one of the other victims. http://www.robesonian.com/news/99766...-of-two-bodies. Another article (and I'll post the link if I can find it again) quoted a friend of the third victim as stating her friend and she had previously shared an issue with drugs. There were no signs of truma on the first three bodies according to the preliminary autopsy. http://wpde.com/news/local/police-in...en-has-stalled

    All of the bodies were found in an area that the police said is known for prostitution and drug use. http://www.robesonian.com/news/98422...dead-last-week

    In my opinion, the first three aren't the work of a serial killer, which should give the community a little sense of relief as they search for this 4th young lady.

    I wonder what the autopsies of these women showed for COD? Mom called LE (news article in post #34) fairly quickly, imo, for a 20 yr-old that was gone for only an hour. She must of had some concerns when she left in the buick? moo and I not trying to sleuth mom or imply anything negative towards her. I can only imagine what she is going through right now.

    When trying to piece together he movements prior to going missing, it seemed really obvious she was back home because she had been in rehab or had relapsed in Jacksonville and was going home where she would have support for being sober from her family.

    Denying or trying to downplay drug addiction in loved ones, especially when someone is missing, is part of what makes it so insidious. In fact, coming out with it early ensures Abby is handled as a high-risk missing person and puts her disappearance into a very important context. I am not blaming her family, only pointing out that, especially here at WS, we don't judge drug-users and put them aside, and no matter how lightly we may try to dance around it or offer alternatives, there are really too many undeniable connections between Abby and heroin.

    Heroin is no longer a drug anyone should associate with dirtbags, rock stars or the homeless. It is an incredible epidemic seeping into some of our best communities and universities.


    I don't think LE has to stretch far to see the connection between these women in background alone. I hope they can uncover enough evidence to point them to whoever committed these crimes whether it is one or many, whether it was direct or drugs. I think their challenge is going to be finding someone who isn't in fear for their lives if they come forward.

    Police unsure if slayings of 2 prostitutes linked
    This is the 2 other bodies from 2015. Found in the same area.
    2 can be coincidence 3 a pattern but 5 + 1 missing?


    If doing the right thing were easy, more people would be doing it.

    They may not "think" they are related but haven't completely ruled it out either, and it would be remiss for them to do so. Actually, they shouldn't even be discussing what investigators "think" or "don't think" happened to her. Investigators need to stick to facts only and should have given the appropriate response to that question --- we simply don't know the answer to that at this time.

    Who wrote that quote you added? If Abby didn’t do drugs, then why did she just get out of rehab? Why was she posting about getting sober? This is all so strange.

    I haven’t got a clue lol I had just hit quote. I think it was someone that knows the family? No clue. But she obviously had some sort of dependency issue if she was talking about being sober.. doesn’t really mean it had to be drugs. I still feel like it’s connected to the other 2 women that went missing and their bodies were found.

    Just heard about Abby. I hope she just left town for awhile to clear her head and that she is safe somewhere. I hope she is found and gets the help she needs to begin her lifelong lasting recovery. And I hope that she goes on to live a successful and prosperous life that she truly enjoys.
