Tabloid: Love You To Death

Psycho For Love: Drag Queen Cliff Youens stabbed girlfriend, Patrice LeBlanc, 39 times; Sentenced to life in prison

From Cliff Youens’ appeal: The body of a young woman was found floating in Lake Livingston on March 23, 1986. The body was clad in a dvawareness3nightshirt and wrapped in a quilt. The wrapped body was sewn into a comforter, a pillowcase placed over one end, and tied completely around with panty hose material and one piece of flowered, multicolored cloth. The body thus wrapped in multiple layers had been placed in a blue nylon drawstring bag and attached to two concrete cinder blocks by a decorative chain and a blue-gray work shirt. The body itself had been slash cut thirty-one times and stabbed eight times. The examining pathologist considered three of the stab wounds to be the fatal wounds. The pathologist estimated that the wounds had been inflicted with a sharp, thin-blade knife or knife-like instrument. The pathologist estimated that, as of the date of his examination, the body had been dead a minimum of fourteen days, putting the date of death at March 10, 1986 or earlier. Decomposition had rendered bloodtyping of the deceased no longer possible. The body was identified in early April from dental records as that of Patrice LeBlanc.

Patrice LeBlancThe peach-colored comforter in which the body was wrapped was one owned by the deceased and seen in the apartment she shared with appellant. The blue drawstring bag was identified as appellant’s laundry bag. The quilt, also kept in the apartment, belonged to appellant. Appellant’s former roommate testified that the flowered material used to wrap the body came from appellant’s belted, florescent-green flowered bathrobe. Appellant wore both regular pantyhose and “Danskin” pantyhose, whereas the deceased wore neither. One of appellant’s neighbors spotted several cinder blocks near the garbage dumpsters, some of which were an unusual color of yellow, and stated that they were no longer there around the first of April.

Appellant’s parents owned a lakehouse on Lake Livingston at Cape Royale as well as a boat which was docked at Cape Royale marina. Appellant had access to both. A piece of gold-colored decorative chain was obtained by police from a nail where it was hanging on the garage wall of the lakehouse. The chain was similar in color and design to that attaching the body to one of the concrete cinder blocks. An inspection of the boat revealed numerous fragments of concrete and chips of yellow paint similar in appearance to the yellow paint on the concrete blocks retrieved with the body. Scratch marks in the fiberglass on the bow and right aluminum railing contained what appeared to be yellow or gray paint.

The deceased had been living with appellant in Houston since the Fall of 1985 in an apartment on Timmons Lane. Among the items seized from that apartment and analyzed by a chemist with the Houston Police Department were three items found to be stained by human blood: one of appellant’s cowboy boots bearing a stain of type A human blood, a wood scraping from the bedroom closet door stained with human blood of an undetermined type, and a piece of flooring under the carpet of the extra room (referred to also as “the blue room”) containing human blood of an undetermined type which had been covered by blue paint.
