On April 18, 1974, Patricia Carol Webb went missing from Lincoln, Nebraska.
Two and a half days later, Patricia’s body was discovered by a man who was feeding cattle on abandoned farmland he owned east of Hallam, Nebraska.
His body was described as “riddled with bullets” and was found “naked under the hay, except for a padded jacket” with a piece of duct tape over its mouth; there was no mention of a criminal act.
The interesting thing about this jacket is that it was just one of one hundred and forty-three jackets ever made in the extra large size for a supply factory. That the feed mill distributed to its customers or employees.
And nearly forty years later, it is still one of Nebraska and more specifically Lincoln’s biggest murder mysteries to this day.
“” This case was the subject of an investigation, a re-investigation, a re-investigation. A lot of effort has gone into it, ”said Lincoln Police Sgt. Larry Barksdale, who had been in charge of the investigation since the early 1990s. Barksdale retired in 2012, but the case remains open. “
Combined between these three law enforcement entities: the Lincoln Police Department, the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office, the Nebraska State Patrol, and the FBI, they dedicated more than 15,000 hours to help solve the case in the first year of Patricia’s single murder.
Clairvoyants or some may call a medium or even a medium were also consulted on this case too.
This case is still not resolved today.
