Missing since February 13, 2001

Forty-two-year-old Patricia Viola, of Bogota, New Jersey is living the life of her dreams. She has two wonderful children and a happy, stable marriage. On February 13, 2001, Pat wakes up, gets the kids ready for school, and then volunteers at the local library. She returns home and briefly calls her mother.

Pat Viola is never heard from or seen again. Her husband Jim returns home to find Pat has vanished, but her purse, wallet, keys, and cell phone are all in the house. Police immediately launch an investigation to determine if Pat voluntarily left, or if she was the victim of foul play. Then, ten years later, a private investigator stumbles on a surprising connection between Pat and a triple homicide that could blow the case wide open.
