Patricia Calloway was reported missing from Henderson, Kentucky on March 3, 1993. She was last seen in the company of her brother-in-law, Gene Calloway. On October 17, 2012, arrest warrants were executed for Gene and his wife Debra for the felony counts of homicide, kidnapping, tampering with evidence, and retaliation against a participant in a legal process. Debra was convicted, but Gene died while awaiting trial. Prior to his death, Gene prepared a crudely drawn map of the body disposal location. This map was recovered from an ammunition box that had been buried outside for an unknown period of time. In May, 2015, forensic archaeological resources were pooled in the effort to interpret the map and thoroughly investigation the presumed location of interment.
