Unsolved Mysteries: Where is Rob Endres? What happened to his wife Patrice?

Thanks for visiting Popular Crime. The story below is a summary we’re sharing from another news source, who did original reporting on the case. 

Unsolved Mysteries: Where is Rob Endres? What happened to his wife Patrice?

Original Story appeared on The Daily Express

Unsolved Mysteries first started airing in 1987 and the series used re-enactments to illustrate unsolved cases and paranormal events. Netflix has now rebooted the series, which ran for a total of 14 seasons up until 2010. One of the cases explored is the death of Patrice Endres, who was married to Rob Endres. 

Where is Rob Endres? What happened to his wife Patrice?

Fans were shocked to find out more about the case of Patrice Endres as her husband revealed he would carry around her skull and sleep with her ashes.

Patrice was from Georgia, and the 38-year-old hairdresser went missing from her salon on April 15, 2004.

She left her son, Pistol Black, and husband Rob Endres behind, and her two family members feature in the episode.

Rob was 20 years older than Patrice and they first met when he visited the salon for a haircut.

Throughout the episode, it was revealed he was sometimes possessive towards his wife.

Rob, who has a degree in criminology himself, is still vocal about finding out what happened to her.

At the end of the episode, Rob said he asked the funeral home director, Judson Caldwell, to lay out his wife’s remains so he could see her.

He said: “I picked up her skeleton, I mean her head, and carried it around for a while. Put her back, kissed her goodbye.

Redditors found the behavior to be quite creepy as well:

His ending remarks about what he did with her remains and the ominous “I get to have her and that’s a good thing” coupled with the fact that he was “oblivious” to how much she was unhappy with him and all his other actions and her actions, the divorce she wanted. He’s a criminology graduate (would potentially know how to hide a crime).

Man… it’s haunting , that episode.

We previously reported on Episode 2: 13 Minutes earlier this week when the episodes were released. The Daily Mail shared reactions from viewers who tweeted out their astonishment at Rob Endres’ bizarre and inexplicable behaviors:

People have been taking to Twitter to share their shock over Rob’s spine-chilling interview, with many insisting he had to have been behind his wife’s murder.

‘So yeah, that creepy a** husband on Unsolved Mysteries def killed his wife. Carried her skull around the funeral home?? Slept with her ashes?? That “And I have her” line at the end?? WTF,’ one person tweeted.

‘#UnsolvedMysteries ep 2… the f*****g husband did it,’ someone else insisted. ‘Obviously. He changed the locks on her son THE NEXT DAY, walked around with her skull, slept for a year with her ashes and said they never argued?? F*****g red flags all over the god damn place. Give her son the ashes!!’

Another compared Rob to Tiger King star Carole Baskin, whose husband Don Lewis mysteriously vanished and was later pronounced dead.

‘EPISODE 2 OF UNSOLVED MYSTERIES IS THE NEXT CAROL BASKIN,’ the fan wrote. ‘I am completely disturbed by what I just watched and I remember this case vividly.’
