This is another case that, because of time and resources, doesn’t have much to any information available to report. The Project Cold Case Database includes a mysterious incident involving 21-year-old Patricia Gambles, a case that hasn’t had any movement since the summer of 1988.

On August 11 of that year, Patricia, her friend, and a few of her co-workers visited a store in Worthington Springs, Florida. There was nothing suspicious about the group and by all accounts, they went their separate ways without conflict or disputes.

The following day, a grisly discovery was made in a wooded area near County Road 131. The dead body of a black female was spotted on a tram road, partially clothed. She was also wrapped in plastic and a green blanket. Sadly, the victim was identified as Patricia. The investigation revealed that she had been raped before being strangled.

Those who were the last to see Patricia alive were questioned, as well as everyone connected to her personally and professionally, but there wasn’t any information that brought detectives closer to finding the monster who took Patricia’s life. There has never been a suspect named in the case, and Patricia’s murder has gone unsolved for 30 years.

If you have any information regarding Patricia Gambles murder case, you’re urged to contact the Columbia County Sheriff’s Office at 386-752-9212.

This is a case I initially came across when I first launched Our Black Girls and it continues to weigh on my heart. I’ve written about it on social media but I haven’t dedicated space here on the site for a full story, until today. It involves siblings, 15-year-old Monica Bennett and her 13-year-old brother Michael, and it centers on how they both went missing from Brunswick, Georgia on June 21, 1989. (more…)
