About This Website

Pat Collins’s remains have now been identified; they were found on the outskirts of Port Henry, New York, in June 1988 and identified on August 10, 2013, which would have been Pat’s 54th birthday. Read my C-Ville Weekly article on the discovery here.

This website was created to accompany my 25th anniversary coverage of the 1986 disappearance of Patrick Collins, who was a graduate student at the University of Virginia, and the subsequent actions of the UVA Police Department, UVA administration, and FBI. The article was published in The Hook‘s March 24, 2011, print edition.

Thanks and best wishes,

  4. I was a grad commerce student in 1992-3. So easy to disappear in Charlottesville, the focus is on study and not socializing. Mem Gym did creep me out and I did not know why.

    My first week there, someone was shot. I heard gunshots often originating from the other side of the tracks.
