No one, except her killer, is sure how a Louisville mother and veteran ended up battered and mostly nude dumped in rural Ohio.
For nearly 27 years, her name remained a mystery. But a determined Louisville Metro Police detective helped identify the body as Patrice Anita Corley.
Corley was 29, with a toddler son, when someone beat her in the head — causing her to die of blunt force trauma, sheriff's officials told the Newark Advocate, part of the USA TODAY Network. Her body was left near a dumpster behind a bustling truck stop. Her only clothing, underwear.

“He had been kind of a drifter and the family never reported him missing,” Moriarty said.
The lack of that missing person report had hampered the attempts to identify him. NamUs, however, matched him using a fingerprint database from the man’s military service. Read more at the link below.
