This week’s story occurred in Lewiston, Idaho. It’s considered one of the oldest missing persons cases in Idaho. The mystery began on August 31, 1976 when Patricia Lee Otto left her home, vanished and has never been seen again. It’s believed she was most likely murdered by her husband Ralph Otto.
For nearly five decades, her daughter Suzanne Timms has been trying to figure out what happened to her mother. Suzanne and her late older sister Natalie were always told by their dad that their mom abandoned the family.
As Suzanne got older, she realized that her mother didn’t abandon the family. She began to believe that her father had killed her mother and hid her body. Suzanne remembered back to when she was a child and saw her father physically assault her mother. She never saw her mother again. As a child, she didn’t realize that she may have witnessed her father murder her mother. It’s a memory that haunts her today.
Suzanne Timms is on a journey to identify her mother's body and find out what happened to her back in 1976.
