  1. Is the pic. Next to inmate info. The man in prison for murdering his wife? Didnt know if it was possibly wrong photo? That photo looks like heavy set grey headed woman. Just saw this story on My Dirty Little Secrets on ID Discovery & couldnt believe a monster who claimed to be a man of god was addicted to sex phone calls. Its a shame this poor woman lost her life to a lowlife freak.

  2. Yes he has aged quite a bit since his conviction. I just finished a book about this story written by Patty Jo’s niece – Connie Smithson. Good book – sad story. – my condolences to her family.

  3. God promises that what is done in the dark will be brought into the light. Shows what an absolute fool he was. I think he used the pulpit to hide behind. Unfortunately I have encountered those kind down through the years in some churches I have attended.

    • Your comment speaks the truth! So many are surprised when a person who claims Christianity is caught doing wrong but they refuse to realize that just because someone says they are one thing or another doesn’t bring truth to their claim as much as actions do. That’s y God will judge all!

  4. I grew up in the youth group in this church. I knew Rick and Patty Jo. Patty Jo was my piano teach up until she disappeared. She was a quite, sweet natured kind of person who seemed to want to live her life for Jesus. Behind closed doors her husband beat her, called 1800 sex numbers and did awful things. I went to court when Rick had is trail. It is unbelievable how some River of LIfe members can be so manipulated. Rick’s facebook page came up as “recommended people I know” I saw that he has had a girlfriend for quite some time. She must like wife beaters. And someone who is addicted to porn,1800 sex girls. I can only imagine that Donna must be a girl with no self worth. No goals or ambitions to do better for herself. It makes me sick to my stomach that she wants to put herself out there even after Patty Jo was murdered. River of Life church is nothing but bad history. It still has a couple who’s husband is a child molester. It makes me sick to know they go to River of Life and sometimes Westover Christian Church. They were suppose to be “kicked out” of ROL, but apparently their friends don’t care that he is a child molester. While there is history of child molesting, gay pastors, affairs with other married couples in the church and murder, people can be so stupid. Wake up!! This church needs to be closed down. While I was growing up, Rick and Patty Jo were the youth group leaders, but the child molester couple wanted to help out. They were involved in taking the youth on beach trips and youth group events. It is a sad situation. And all I can do is sit back and watch and hope that something good will come. But I fear for the people in this church.
