and that detailed medical information turned up no one?

Or was that information not released?

And, no one knows who Patrick Allen Hoppe was dating?

Clothing description: if the decedent truly weighed 85 pounds, and the underwear as described would fit 40" hips, something doesn't make sense. Possibly a weight of 185 pounds?

Per Find-AGrave, Patrick A. Hoppe was born 4 January 1955, has no marker, is interred in Ocala, Marion County, Florida.

Per FamilySearch, Patrick was married in Florida in 1984, divorced in Florida in 1986. Not sleuthing victims, just searching for information. Hope LE spoke with the former spouse!

Hhhmmmm....

If this is the same man, he was arrested in 1986 for shooting a motorcyclist in the chest in a road-rage incident. If it is him, there should be additional legal records links (including the court case) which might help provide info on the victim. He was arrested in 1986 out of Pasco County, her body was recovered in Marion County, approx 100 miles away.

I wonder why he was not incarcerated in 1990. It sure sounds like him.

He apparently skipped bond in the 1986 case https://ccmspa.pinellascounty.org/PublicAccess/CaseDetail.aspx?CaseID=8321817

I KNEW someone would find something - great job Sleuthster! I wonder if there is anything, anywhere that would identify who posted bond $ that might lead back to some paper trail on him and possible link to her? I don't know how to find that kind of info. Someone had to come up with some cash, 5K or so I think.

Actually now that I look at that link, I can't find where he skipped bond. It looks to me like he appeared and after multiple changes of attorneys, a competency hearing, etc he was sentenced to 3 years with some kind of credit for time served. He has a few entries in that db for traffic violations and recorded as a no-show. I don't know how to read all of this, but that's what it appears to me.

I saw this and assumed it was because he failed to appear but apparently it was original pick up order

Tampa Tribune, June 11, 1990; page 13 + not so good photo in 1986 paper (as he's been arrested, and provided the location of this lady's body, I really hope agencies will consider using a mugshot or something in Her public case file info)
