2015 - Virginia State Police are asking for the public's help after hunters found a Louisiana woman's body in a creek near Tappahannock.
The Medical Examiner has identified the woman as Patrice J. Bell, 24, and say there is no evidence of foul play in her death.
The hunters found her body on Saturday and contacted the Essex County Sheriff's Office. State Police divers were able to pull her remains from Mount Landing Creek off Route 17.

**********************************************

What the family and friends of Patrice Bell want to know is since when is a body in the woods not considered foul play, when Patrice was upbeat and happy just days prior? Eyewitnesses on social media claim to have seen Patrice around Tappahannock with a male driving a truck. She was seen in restaurants and hotels in the city. Her social media posts prove that she met a man in Tappahannock. The Virginia State Police article about Patrice shows what we now know is the last picture taken of her. Why haven't the police investigated to see who took the picture? Locals say the picture was taken at a hotel. Was the hotel staff interviewed for questioning? Pat rice's family have been left with so many unanswered questions and are petitioning Virginia State Police to reopen the case. So much of what locals in the area say about seeing Patrice does not match what the State police have said. Her body sat in a creek for days before she was discovered, so any DNA evidence would have been washed away.  People who know and love her know she was religious and against suicide, so no one believes she killed herself. 

Please help us get this case reopened! In the article provided, you will find an email address and phone number at the end. Reach out to the state police and ask these questions.  Justice has not been served.
