Patsy was kidnapped on December 3, 1980 by Frank Johnson of Harrisburg and Robert Andre Ruff of Philadelphia. Both men were found guilty of kidnapping and interstate transportation of a stolen vehicle.
According to Johnson, they took her to a bank and forced her to withdraw money from her account, then took her to a motel in Washington, D.C. where they raped her. She was then taken to Anacostia Park where Robert Ruff shot her with Frank Johnson's gun. Both men threw her body into the Anacostia River.
Frank Johnson pled guilty to murder and agreed to cooperate with authorities only after he and Ruff had been convicted of federal kidnapping charges in Pennsylvania. Ruff was convicted largely on Johnson's testimoney.
Patsy's body has never been found.
