Jason and Larry were friends/associates: Jason was friends or associates of Larry Pressley. While Larry was in Prison he found out Jason had passed away. When Larry got out of Prison, he found Patti and told her that Jason had asked him to "take care" of her if anything were to happen to him. ***We believe Larry intentionally found Patti after reading this obituary where he learned Jason had been a successful real estate investor.*** Patti was lonely and looking for someone to love her. Patti and Jason had Luxury cars and multiple rental properties and she had been a 30 year employee of her employer and was getting ready to retire....was this the golden opportunity for Larry Pressley to get a free meal ticket?
The first date: Larry and Patti met at her Church for their first date. Patti was happy to find someone who showed her some attention, someone who wasn't bad looking and Patti, always looked for the best in people, regardless of their past. Larry played the "good guy" part for several weeks. Patti, fell in love with his charm. Patti bought a Harley Davidson motorcycle and let Larry ride it as if it were his own. She paid for it by herself. As time went on, Patti found Larry to be mean and disrespectful. Patti found out Larry had a short temper which she told her co workers about one day after the two of them had went to the mall and Larry caused a huge scene and threatened to beat up some people. Patti told her co workers it scared her a bit and that she was "too old" to deal with something like that. Patti kept very good care of herself and although she had hearing aids because of failing hearing, she was always fit and in shape. She was training to do a marathon with her grandchildren in Alaska when she went missing. One day, before Patti went missing, she found a gun in the saddle bags of the Harley. She confronted Larry about it, and he promised to get rid of the gun. Larry is a felon and was not supposed to have one. Patti continued to help Larry and all his friends. Before she knew it there were multiple people living on her property in travel trailers as well as in her home. Patti kept a very clean and tidy home and she soon became overwhelmed with the abundance of people at her house all the time. Patti went out to a garage type shed on her property that she normally did not go in, and she happened upon a false wall and behind the false wall she found drugs. There was a bunch of marijuana behind the wall. Patti confronted Larry about it. Larry said he would "get rid" of the drugs. Patti believed him. Patti confided in her co workers that Larry wasn't affectionate with her. She said he told her he had impotence problems and was impotent. He told her he was unable to have sex with her. Shortly thereafter, Patti realized that Larry wasn't impotent, he was having sex with other women instead. Patti became sad and we believe she realized she was being used, but she didn't know how to get out of the situation. Patti again found a gun in the saddle bags of the motorcycle. This time when Patti confronted Larry about it, she was scared of his reaction. Patti had become withdrawn from her friends and coworkers. Everyone she worked with told her she needed to get rid of Larry Pressley as he was not any good for her. Patti ignored her co workers suggestions and just stopped talking about Larry. She became truly scared of him and his friends. As Patti filled her car with gasoline at her employer, she did tell her co worker that she felt like Larry might kill her. Less than a month after she made that statement, Patti went missing, while supposedly hiking with Larry Pressley and his friends and family.
