Kansas Authorities Find Remains On Farm
For nearly six months, Patricia Kimmi's family waited on baited breath for any word about their dearly beloved matriarch.
Unfortunately, authorities delivered tragic news to them after their investigation pointed them to a rural farm on the night of May 4, 2010. That evening, around 6:30 p.m., "we found human remains that we believe was Patricia Kimmi," said Atchinson County, Kan., Undersheriff Larry Myer.
Along with the remains, "we found some evidence that leads us to confidently believe it's her," said Undersheriff Myer at the time of the discovery.
The remains were found on the property of Bruce Hollister, whose brother is Roger Hollister -- a man who authorities have long suspected played an integral part in Patricia's disappearance.
At the time of the discovery of Patricia's body, Hollister was already in jail for the Feb. 26, 2010, attempted murder of his wife, Rebecca.
Authorities say he tried to kill her by driving head-on into a semi-truck while she was seated in the passenger seat of his SUV.
Hollister has been charged with capital murder in Kimmi's death and will remain in the Atchison County Jail on $3 million bond.
