xx Missing Stylist's Remains Found?
« Reply #105 on: Dec 7th, 2005, 04:36am »

DAWSONVILLE -- Law enforcement authorities in Dawson County have found human remains behind a church, and sources told Channel 2 Action News that they are the remains of a missing Forsyth County hair stylist.
The abduction in April 2004 of Patrice Endres, 38, who had run Tamber's Trim-N-Tan hair salon sparked a massive search in the area, but she has never been found.

Alleged serial killer Jeremy Jones, who was found guilty of murder in connection with an Alabama killing, is believed to be the primary suspect in the slaying of Endres.

Sgt. Tony Wooten, the spokesman for the Dawson sheriff's office, said bones were found about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday behind the Dawson church by church members who saw buzzards in the area.

He said the remain have been sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigations, although he declined to say if the remains were those of Endres.

The woman's husband said he is still haunted by his wife's disappearance.

"My whole life has been destroyed," said Rob Endres, the husband of the missing woman. "I'm not living, I'm existing."

Jones has been charged with killing Amanda Greenwell, a Douglasville County teen and a Louisiana woman.

He is also a suspect in 10 other deaths -- seven in Oklahoma, two other killings in Georgia and one in Kansas. State and local law enforcement also believe he may be linked to the slayings of four Atlanta-area prostitutes.

xx Rob Endres on Finding Patrice
« Reply #107 on: Dec 7th, 2005, 6:16pm »

Patrice Endres' husband has very mixed emotions about the uncovering of her body. But for the most part, he takes comfort in the knowledge her remains have finally been recovered.

Rob Endres has spent the past 18 months dealing with uncertainty, grief, fear, as well as police scrutiny.

He can now add relief to that list, but perhaps not closure.

Patrice would have turned 40 in November, and her husband turned 60 on Wednesday.

“What a marvelous birthday present -- to have Patrice recovered. I know it sounds dumb,” Rob said.

Suspected serial killer Jeremy Jones has confessed to killing the Forysyth County hairdresser.

While some are skeptical, Endres says based on what detectives have told him, he believes it.

“He has intimate knowledge of her and things about her shop. Thing that were not shown on TV and on the radio,” Endres said.

Jones told police he dumped the body in Sweetwater Creek in Douglas County, not where it actually was, in Forsyth County.

“He intersperses truth and lies to make things believable. He’s a despicable, horrible, worthless human being,” Rob said.

For Rob Endres, there is rage, but also relief.

“I don’t know if they'll keep her and do an autopsy, but once I get her remains, I'll have her cremated and she'll go with me every where I go,” Rob said.

Rob says he's spent the last 18 month alone, but doesn't feel quite so alone any more.

“Our wedding rings are inscribed with ‘Patrice and Rob forever,’ now I can live up to that. That’s meaningful to me,” he said. “I get real emotional. I loved Patrice.”

For 602 days, Rob has been waiting for news of his wife. The wait ended on his 60th birthday.

“It’s kind of a bittersweet reaction,” he said. “I wanted to hold out hope that she was alive, but rationally knew she wasn't.”

Rob says the media, not police, notified him his wife's remains had been found.

He says for him the case is far from over. He'd like to see Jones tried and convicted.

“A significant aspect of it is over. We know what we do with that knowledge is a whole new event,” Rob said.

xx Remains confirmed as missing woman's
« Reply #109 on: Dec 8th, 2005, 05:05am »

[bBy MARCIA LANGHENRY , MICHAEL PEARSON
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 12/08/05 [/b]

It was news her family, her friends and a whole community dreaded, but still wanted to hear.

The remains of Patrice Endres, missing from her salon in northwest Forsyth County for almost 20 months and the subject of a national search, had been found just a few miles away across the county line at the bottom of a heavily wooded ravine.

About the time investigators confirmed Endres' identity, M.J. Luter's co-workers at Coal Mountain Animal Hospital were opening a Christmas card from Patrice Endres and her husband, Rob.

He had signed both of their names, as always, and mailed it before the discovery was made.

"It's a bad day, but it's also a good day," Luter said, opening the red and gold card with a white poinsettia on the front. "Now maybe they can solve the case."

Earlier in the day, 45 investigators from Dawson and Forsyth counties and the GBI combed the woods behind Lebanon Baptist Church on Kelly Bridge Road in Dawson County. By car, it is about eight miles from Tamber's Trim-N-Tan salon on Matt Highway, where Endres disappeared on April 15, 2004.

About 25 planned to stay until dark, searching on their hands and knees for evidence, according to Sgt. Tony Wooten, spokesman for the Dawson County Sheriff's Office.

Special Agent John Cagle, in charge of the GBI's Cleveland office, said they were trying to work ahead of the freezing rain forecast for today.

On Tuesday, workmen at the church discovered some bones, including an intact skull, Woo­ten said.

Endres' body was identified based on dental records.

More bones were found Wednes­day, but as of 3 p.m. no other evidence had been discovered.

"There were no clothes, jew­elry or anything," Wooten said.

The site is in southwest Daw­son County about a mile from the Forsyth County line and not far from the Pickens County line to the west.

The area where the body was found is not on a road or path, Forsyth County Sheriff Ted Pax­ton said. "It's just heavily wooded back there," he said. "It's like all of a sudden, in the woods, are the remains."

Dawson County Sheriff Billy Carlisle said investigators are treating the death as a homi­cide, although they have not released the cause of death.

The location immediately sparked questions about the confession of the man who claims to have killed Endres.

Alleged serial killer Jeremy Jones reportedly confessed to killing Endres but also claimed to have dumped the body in Douglas County, west of Atlanta, at least 60 miles from where her remains were found.

But Paxton said it was too early to rule out Jones as a suspect.

"He is a suspect, and there are no other suspects at this time," he said.

Paxton said Jones had knowl­edge of the crime that investigators have not publicly released. He did not elaborate.

Last week, a judge in Mobile, Ala., sentenced Jones to death for the rape and murder of a woman on Sept. 17, 2004.

At the Dawson County church site, two girls, 18 and 19, who were friends and clients of Enders' dropped off a note in case Endres' son, D. Wade "Pistol" Black, showed up later.

Ashlee Vallis said she had not been able to reach him in sev­eral months. She and Ramey Tucker, who have since graduated from North Forsyth High School and moved from the area, took part in the com­munity effort to find Endres.

Last year they played hooky and spent their own money copying and distributing fliers during the search.

"When it comes to court, I'm going to be there," Tucker said.

"This is a part of my childhood."

Both still have the pink "tickets" Endres sent them to remind them of their hair appoint­ments before their prom in 2004.

"It's so important for me to be here," Tucker said. "Nothing's going to be completely closed, though, until someone's con­victed."

Earlier, Patrice Endres' sister, Kyleen Kramer of Dacula, arrived at the scene to a hug and an apology from Sheriff Pax­ton, to whom she said, "One step closer."

She said she and other family members had always doubted Jeremy Jones was the killer.

"It never really fit with any­thing we learned," she said.

The day she disappeared, Endres was at work at the salon she and Rob had owned for eight years. She was 38 and would have turned 40 last week.

The cash drawer was pulled out and empty, although she had seen customers all morn­ing, authorities said at the time. Her wallet was out of her purse and open, but her credit cards were there.

There was no sign of a struggle, police had said. Her black Tahoe, usually parked to the left of the building, was parked near the front of the salon.

At the animal hospital on Wednesday, Luter recalled it was typical for Endres to back her Tahoe in along the side of the build­ing on Thursdays. That's because every Wednes­day the shop was closed and Endres visited a local nursing home to fix residents' hair. The next day she would unload the supplies she had packed for her volunteer effort.

"I'm just glad they found her," Luter said.

xx Stylist's body found: Jones still suspect
« Reply #110 on: Dec 8th, 2005, 2:05pm »

By STEPHEN GURR and NANCY SMALLWOOD
Times regional staff


Forsyth County's sheriff said identification of the skeletal remains of hairdresser Patrice Endres doesn't eliminate a suspected serial killer as the prime suspect in her murder.

Endres' remains were found Tuesday in thick woods behind Lebanon Baptist Church in Dawson County, some 70 miles from where Jeremy Jones claimed to have dumped her body.

Jones, who has been investigated in the murders of at least five women in four states, said early this year that he abducted the 38-year-old Endres from her Matt Highway salon in April 2004.

He claimed to have driven her to Douglas County, where he said he killed her and dumped her body into a creek.

"All this tells us so far is that her remains have been found," Sheriff Ted Paxton said Wednesday after the Georgia Bureau of Investigation confirmed Endres' identity through dental records. "Jones is obviously a suspect and is the only suspect at this time."

As of Wednesday night, authorities had not released a cause of death, other than to say it was a homicide.

Rob Endres, Patrice Endres' widower, wept when he learned it was her, saying he had held on to a thread of hope that she might be alive.

"I guess this means we won't find her in Italy, then," he said though tears. "... It's been 602 days. You like to hold out hope that she might still be alive, but realistically you know that she's probably not."

Endres said he could take some solace in having his wife's remains, which he said would be cremated.

Paxton said Jones, a 32-year-old drifter who was sentenced to death Dec. 1 in Alabama for the rape and murder of a woman, told investigators details of the crime that the public would not have known.

Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller, who took over the Endres' case after it was thought she was killed in his jurisdiction, said the discovery in Dawson County made him skeptical of any of Jones' claims.

"He may be the killer, but it certainly casts a lot of doubt on that," Miller said. "I personally believe Jeremy Jones did not kill Ms. Endres. ... I know he knows the difference between Douglas County and Dawson County."

Lebanon Baptist Church is off Kelly Mill Road, about four miles north of the Forsyth County line and some 10 miles from Endres' salon, Tamber's Trim-N-Tan.

Andy Clark found the remains with his father, Elbert. The younger Clark said the men were building a new church sanctuary when they saw buzzards feeding on a dead deer.

The remains were in a hollow that wasn't easily accessible, Clark said. "It had obviously been there for a long time."

Douglas County investigators spent countless hours scouring Sweetwater Creek, which flows into the Chattahoochee River, after Jones told them he had dumped her body there.

Douglas County authorities have charged Jones with murder in the death of 16-year-old Amanda Greenwell of Douglasville, whose remains were found in April 2004.

Rob Endres said the location doesn't necessarily eliminate Jones as a suspect in his wife's death.

"I haven't viewed the tape of his confession, but apparently he had intimate knowledge of what Patrice looked like and the interior of her shop," he said.

"To me it's more plausible that the crime occurred in Cumming or Dawson County and that he just disposed of her body out in a field."

More than 24 hours after the discovery, authorities continued to scour the scene. GBI Special Agent in Charge John Cagle said the bureau planned aerial searches to find as many of the remains as possible.

"It's going to take a long time," he said.

xx Convicted killer says he lied to detectives
« Reply #111 on: Dec 9th, 2005, 05:00am »

By BILL TORPY and MARCIA LANGHENRY
The Atlanta Journal-Constitutionmlanghenry@ajc.com
Published on: 12/09/05



Jeremy Jones is a rapist and a killer. And a liar.

An Oklahoma native who lived four years as a fugitive under a false name, Jones has implicated himself in as many as 21 murders across five states. Problem is neither Jones nor the police can prove he was involved in most of them.

Jones, sentenced to death last week for murdering a woman in Mobile County, Ala., has told authorities he kidnapped Patrice Endres from her isolated Forsyth County beauty shop last year, raped her, killed her and dumped the body in Douglas County. However, the body was found this week in Dawson County, more than an hour's drive northeast, casting doubt on this and other confessions.

Jones, in interviews with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution last week, said he lied to investigators to get better food and extra telephone and visitation privileges.

"I made up that crap," Jones said. "Those murders in Georgia, I didn't do them."

In fact, he now claims he did none of the murders, including the one in Alabama for which he was convicted.

Forsyth County Sheriff Ted Paxton said that finding the remains in Dawson County shows "that part of his statement is clearly a lie, but that's the only thing we can say with certainty right now."

Paxton said "there were several problems in his confession. ... There were things that Jeremy Jones told us that anyone who had followed it in the media could tell us. And there were some things that could have been good guesses, like did she or did she not have tan lines? But that does not diminish the fact that some things that Jeremy Jones did say to us, if it was a guess it was a very good guess. There were some things he said that continue to keep him as a person of interest in this case."

He said some hair found in Jones' Jeep Cherokee was analyzed to see if it matched Endres' hair. That result was inconclusive, he said.

"Any trace evidence in that car it was certainly contaminated by that time," Paxton said.

On Thursday, the investigation moved from Forsyth County to Dawson County, with several boxes of papers including statements and leads being transferred to a space in Dawsonville. The Dawson County Sheriff's Office is in charge of what is now a homicide investigation. The remains are being reassembled in the GBI Crime Lab in Decatur by forensic anthropologist Dr. Frederick Snow, who will look for a cause of death, said GBI spokesman John Bankhead.

Sgt. Mitch McRae, a Mobile County sheriff's detective who has spent dozens of hours interviewing Jones, thinks Jones has been "lying from the start" in his confession that he killed Endres, although McRae is certain he has killed others.

"There were inconsistencies [in the Endres story] that he fixed in later statements," McRae said. "It wasn't too hard to see he was guessing," with descriptions of her body and clothes.

"He said that he parked on the bridge, he dropped the body and didn't hear a splash," recalls McRae. Jones told detectives he was stopped by a game warden. But a state game warden on duty that day in the area didn't remember Jones, McRae said.

"There's no doubt he's playing games with us," said McRae. He said the energetic Jones rambles in his fast, high-pitched Oklahoma twang, switching back and forth among hunting, fishing, sex and murder.

Asked a specific question, Jones will act like he doesn't hear it. Then, a week or two later, he'll call McRae, or his partner, Paul Burch, and start answering the question as if it were posed five minutes ago.

"He'd confess to things, but there'd always be an out to where you couldn't confirm things," McRae said.

Case in point, said McRae, was the 1999 killings in Oklahoma of Danny Freeman and his wife, Kathy, who were found shot to death in their burning trailer (the woman Jones shot and killed in Mobile, Lisa Nichols, was also found burning in her trailer). The Freemans' daughter, Ashley, 16, and her best friend, Lauria Bible, disappeared from the scene. Jones has claimed to Mobile and Oklahoma investigators that he raped one of the girls, shot both and dumped them down an abandoned mineshaft.

They have not been found.

Jones, 32, who lived in west metro Atlanta from 2002 to 2004, also claimed to have stabbed to death Tina Mayberry in 2002 at a Douglasville tavern he frequented. Police have no other evidence he was there that night and have not charged him for the crime.

"Any time you have a nut like this, you have to corroborate his story," said former DeKalb County District Attorney J. Tom Morgan. "He can get enough information from the press to make up stories but not corroborate. Where was the body placed? That's probably the biggest clue."

Douglasville police Chief Joe Whisenant said Jones "still says he killed Tina Mayberry, but he has changed some stuff about the crime scene."

Whisenant believes Jones did it but "he has not given us enough that if he recants his confession, we wouldn't have enough to convict him. And now his credibility with law enforcement is shot."

McRae said that while, "I had a bad feeling about Tina and Patrice, I have no doubt about Amanda Greenwell."

McRae said they learned of Greenwell's March 2004, kidnapping and death before Jones ever said a word about it. Greenwell lived near Jones and his girlfriend in the same Douglas County trailer park.

After Jones' arrest in 2004, his girlfriend, Vicki Freeman (no relation to the murdered family), asked detectives why Jones had been posing as a man named John Paul Chapman.

McRae said he told Freeman that Jones was wanted on an Oklahoma rape charge. "She said, 'Oh, no. He did it. He did it. I always wondered if he did it. Now I know he has,' " McRae said.

Freeman, who still supports Jones, disputes McRae. "Mitch McRae is a liar, I never told him anything like that," she said.

She said the location of Endres' body "proves Jeremy was lying about a lot of those things."

xx Killer Claims He Lied About Endres
« Reply #112 on: Dec 11th, 2005, 1:58pm »

Suspected serial killer Jeremy Jones told an Atlanta newspaper that he lied when he claimed to have killed hair salon owner Patrice Endres in Forsyth County.

"I made up that crap," he told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. "Those murders in Georgia, I didn't do them."

Jones, who is on Alabama death row for the rape and murder of a woman in that state, said he claimed to have killed several women in Georgia in exchange for better jailhouse privileges.

Jones told Forsyth County investigators that he dumped Endres' body in Sweetwater Creek in Douglas County. Her remains were found Tuesday scattered behind a church 60 miles away in Dawson County and just eight miles from where she disappeared.

When asked about Jones' possible involvement when the remains were identified, Forsyth County Sheriff Ted Paxton said Jones made key statements that indicated he had first-hand knowledge about her abduction. He also said other things that were known publicly.

"The only information was his statement and at the time no physical evidence to link him with the disappearance. Some of the things he told us at the time was things that anyone who had followed it in the news media would also have known so we'd be very cautious once again about accepting what he told us," Paxton said.

Endres' sister held steadfast to her family's belief that Endres' husband murdered her sister.

"Her husband has been in the press extensively and we want to say he is still a suspect. In our hearts, we are confident about what happened to her," Kyleen Kramer said.

Investigators have interviewed Rob Endres extensively and said publicly that he is not a suspect. His wife's body was found on his 60th birthday.

"I always wanted to hold out that Patrice was alive somewhere. Rationally, you know that she wasn't," Endres said after her remains were found.

Jeremy Jones is charged in one murder in Georgia -- that of his 16-year-old neighbor, Amanda Greenwell. Her body was found one month before Endres was kidnapped and murdered.

xx Endres mystery in new phase
« Reply #113 on: Dec 12th, 2005, 3:34pm »

At a tiny churchyard in a hauntingly familiar scene, law enforcement officers set up a command post under a picnic pavilion and fanned out for a search last week much the way they did 20 months ago at another small brick church a few miles away.

On that day, April 15, 2004, Patrice Endres was being sought.

This time, she was being found.

The discovery of her remains Tuesday opens a new chapter in the mystery of what happened the day the young business owner was abducted from her salon in a quiet community in northwest Forsyth County.

Since then, there has been no physical evidence linking anyone to the crime. A convicted killer's confession, doubted by some initially, is even more suspect now that Endres' remains have been found an hour's drive away from where he said he had disposed of her body.

Investigators have moved the missing persons case files from Forsyth County to Dawson County and reclassified it a homicide.

"It's obvious you have a situation involving foul play, so you proceed with that," said John Bankhead, GBI spokesman.

On Friday, a team of five investigators from the two counties and the GBI began to comb back through stacks of reports of interviews and dead-end leads.

But this week, the best chance of finding a clue will be in an annex of the GBI Crime Lab in Decatur.

Searchers on their hands and knees combed the woods behind Lebanon Baptist Church on Kelly Bridge Road in south Dawson County on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Forensic anthropologist Frederick Snow took what they found at the bottom of a heavily wooded ravine back to the lab to prepare for examination, Bankhead said.

"He, in essence, puts everything back together," Bankhead said.

Snow was delayed by another case when hunters elsewhere stumbled on other human remains, something Bankhead said is not uncommon during hunting season.

On Monday, Snow and Dr. Mark Koponen, deputy chief medical examiner, will put portions of the reassembled remains under a microscope looking for a cause of death.

It's a tedious process that Snow projected could take a couple of weeks, Bankhead said.

But right now, unless someone near the scene of the discovery remembers something useful from back in spring 2004, it's all they have to go on.

In the time she was missing, not much has happened in Matt, where Endres did a brisk business, made tight friends and volunteered her time and skills.

The county extended a sewer line through recently along busy Ga. 369 where the small salon, now a pet grooming shop, sits back about 50 feet.

Near the main intersection, a turn lane was added for a Sheetrock company's increasing truck traffic.

A new BP Station opened, along with a Subway shop and a dry cleaner's.

Girls who had their hair done at Endres' hair and tanning salon have graduated from North Forsyth High School in Coal Mountain and moved on.

One of them, Ashlee Vallis, moved to Canton, enrolling in classes at Kennesaw State University. She says it's a blessing not to have to drive by Tamber's Trim-N-Tan every day, reminded of her missing friend she thought of as a big sister.

People in Matt and Coal Mountain were interested in the news that Endres' remains were found by workmen at the church just a few miles away across the Dawson County line.

Now that they know she is gone, they say they are turning their attention to saying goodbye and then solving the crime.

As of Friday afternoon, no plans had been announced for a memorial service.

Endres' widower, Rob Endres, said in a television news report that he wants to have Patrice's remains cremated after they are released by the medical examiner.

The reward fund for information leading to the conviction of Endres' killer is more than $17,000. Rob Endres has previously said that if it isn't used for that purpose within two years of the day his wife disappeared, he will return the money to those who donated it.

Since the case has led to a new location, the GBI is asking again for help. Anyone with information can call the GBI tipline at 1-800-597-8477.

"There could be somebody in Dawson County that saw something unusual back in 2004 and hasn't called yet," Bankhead said.

xx GBI continues investigation in Endres case
« Reply #114 on: Dec 13th, 2005, 7:18pm »

GAINESVILLE - A forensic anthropologist with the GBI has been called in to assist with the investigation into the death of Forsyth County hairdresser Patrice Endres.

Dr. Rick Snow says authorities were back behind the Dawson County church Tuesday where Endres' body was found last week.

Metal detectors and cadaver sniffing dogs were in use as investigators searched for clues as to how Endres died.

"We're going to be looking for anything like of cut marks that might indicate she was stabbed," Snow told Channel 2 Action News. "[We'll also be looking for] any kind of bullet wounds indicating she was shot, any kind of blunt force trauma, [or] any kind of skeletal damage that might indicate how she was killed."

Convicted killer Jeremy Jones had initially said he killed Endres and dumped her body in Douglas County in West Georgia. He later recanted that statement.

xx GBI won't say how Endres died
« Reply #115 on: Dec 17th, 2005, 11:19pm »

The GBI is not releasing the cause of death of a Forsyth County hairdresser whose remains were found in Dawson County earlier this month.

GBI spokesman John Bankhead said that an examination of the remains was completed late Wednesday at the crime lab in Decatur.

Obviously it is a homicide, but the rest is being withheld for investigative reasons," Bankhead said. "It may be useful to us down the road."

Now, as her family plans a memorial after the holidays, a new team has begun the arduous task of going back through hundreds of leads that came in after Patrice Endres disappeared from her hair and tanning salon in rural Forsyth County on April 15, 2004.

Last week, hoping to find more bones and other evidence of foul play, investigators returned to the woods behind Lebanon Baptist Church in Dawson County with cadaver dogs. Most of Endres' remains were found there Dec. 6 and 7.

Convicted killer Jeremy Jones has been the only suspect in Endres' death.

The more authorities learn, the less they believe Jones had anything to do with the abduction and killing, despite his confession, Bankhead said.

Jones, who later recanted, said he killed Endres and dumped her body in Douglas County. But when her remains were found about 60 miles from there, doubt set in.

Confession doubted

Douglas County Sheriff Phil Miller has said he doubted the confession. The area of Sweetwater Creek where Jones said he disposed of her body was searched several times. Cadaver dogs indicated a body had been present, but none was found.

Jones was sentenced to death Dec. 1 in Mobile for the rape and murder of an Alabama woman.

He has been charged in the death of 16-year-old Amanda Greenwell of Douglasville and in the death of a New Orleans woman.

He also reportedly has confessed to killing an Oklahoma couple and two teenage girls and at least four Atlanta prostitutes. Law enforcement officials in those jurisdictions doubt his confessions.

Endres disappeared from her Tamber's Trim-N-Tan salon on Matt Highway at lunchtime. After a highly publicized search, her skeletal remains were found 20 months later fewer than 10 miles away.

Reclassified as a homicide investigation, the case has been assigned to a team that includes two investigators from Dawson County, two from Forsyth County and a GBI agent.

"I sure hope they'll be able to figure out what happened," said Endres' friend M.J. Luter.

John Kramer, Endres' brother-in-law, said a memorial service is being organized, probably in January.

xx Remembering Patrice 12-18-05
« Reply #116 on: Dec 18th, 2005, 8:40pm »

Tonight and mom and I headed to Sueann's vigil in Canton, we passed the place where we spent many hours holding fundraisers for Patrice who was missing for 600 until she was found on Dec. 6th.
A habit I have is stopping in the parking lot each time I head to Canton and I put a rose in the parking lot for Patrice. Her salon is now a pet grooming shop.
We stopped again tonight and today I wanted to go a step further for Patrice and put some purple roses with a note for her. Purple is Patrice's color. We are not allowed to go to the area yet where Patrice's body was found. It's still being looked at by GBI. This has been super hard for me since the discovery of her. A memorial is being planned for Patrice but right now, she's still with GBI's crime lab. They also will not tell us her cause of death because they are still currently investigating some things.

I wanted to share these pictures with you all. Please dont forget about Patrice. We still need to find out who did this to her. I will continue to stop there and do this until they can give me a place to visit formally.

I will always hold Patrice close to my heart because she was the second missing person case my family ever worked on.

xx Endres' Cause of Death Kept Quiet
« Reply #117 on: Dec 20th, 2005, 10:23am »

The cause of death of a woman previously thuoght to have been murdered by convicted killer Jeremy Jones is being kept under wraps by the GBI.

A spokesperson for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation said that an examination of the remains of Patrice Endres has been completed. The GBI is not saying how she died.

GBI and Forsyth County police have deemed Endres’ death a homicide.

The remains turned up two weeks ago when a crew working on the grounds of a church in Dawson County stopped to investigate why a group of vultures were circling over a heavily wooded area about 100 yards away from the church building.

Soon after the discovery of Endres’ remains, Jones recanted statements he gave to Forysth police, claiming that he'd abducted and murdered Endres. The place where Endres' remains were found was not the place Jones had said he'd dumped her body.

Meanwhile, Endres’ family says they are planning to hold a memorial service for her in January. An exact date has not been given.

xx Murder victim's memorial set Jan. 15

Friends and relatives will gather again at a rural Forsyth County church on Jan. 15 to remember Patrice Endres, the young businesswoman, wife and mother whose remains were found last month after she had been missing for 20 months.

The memorial service planned by Endres' family will begin at 2:30 p.m. at Coal Mountain Baptist Church at 3220 Dahlonega Highway in Cumming.

Her sister, Kyleen Kramer of Duluth, said anyone who wishes to may speak at the service.

Endres, who would now be 40 years old, disappeared from her hair salon in Matt, northwest of Cumming, at noon on April 15, 2004.

A massive search yielded no clue about what happened.

Last spring, Jeremy Jones, who was later convicted of another murder in Alabama, confessed to abducting Endres, killing her and dumping her body in Douglas County.

Her remains were discovered last month by workmen near a church in Dawson County, just a few miles from her salon in Forsyth County.

The discrepancy in Jones' story and the location of the body led some authorities to discount his confession.

A cause of death has been determined but is being withheld as homicide investigators comb back through voluminous information filed in the missing person's case.

GBI spokesman John Bankhead said some leads have been revisited by investigators for clarification, but no new information has come to light.
