Please take the time to read my story. It will show you that I have not committed these murders. We all need justice!
Patricia has been wrongfully convicted of murdering Joann and Alex Katrinak in 1994. Since then our team has proven that Patricia is innocent. Please read her story.
Is to get Patricia a fair trial that will prove her innocence, and give justice to Joann and Alex who died of a horrific death. The person responsible, needs to be punished. Patricia was wrongfully convicted. And we will show you how! Please walk thru her website and see for yourself, how easy it is to be convicted of something you had nothing to do with.
In 1995 DNA testing was brand new. Most convictions were procured through microscopic hair comparison which has been debunked as junk science today. I was convicted on microscopic hair comparison and DNA testing that rendered a "match" of 1 in 37,000. Most prosecutors wouldn't even take such paltry evidence into court today. The victim in this crime had a hair clutched in her right hand, and three pieces of fingernail found on her body, none of which has ever been tested. To date, the PA courts refuse to let me test this evidence which will prove my innocence. Please watch the show Wrong Man which also found new evidence that supports my innocence. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sDGl9dMgHwY&fbclid=IwAR1nlAYf6AcIu_i8kN0fD_MCD3CnxJ6DG_oUgVFdqN3b2EJ4fcLO2ci3wWc
I was convicted on the basis of a DNA match made to the root of one (1) hair found in Joann's car. In 2015, I discovered an FBI report that states the hair used to convict me had "No Roots Attached." This proves that whatever hair root was DNA tested and matched to me could not have been one of the hairs taken from Joann's car. Pulled hairs don't grow roots.
When I gave samples of my hair, the doctor took a total of 39 hairs, but only 35 can be accounted for. Where are the missing 4 hairs? And why was my defense not provided with the "No Roots Attached" report which is exculpatory evidence, at trial.?
As noted earlier, there was hair found in the victims hand, fingernail fragments found on her body, and also a cigarette butt. To my knowledge these items have never been DNA tested but the prosecutor stipulated that the hair in Joann's hand does not belong to me, and Dr. Tom Jensen, the PSP forensic scientist noted that the fingernail is to large to belong to me.. Who does this evidence belong to?
I lived with Andrew Katrinak for a few years, the last year we were living in separate bedrooms, and it was time for me to move on, so I moved to NC. We parted friends and we spoke 2 or 3 times a year. I would call and he would tell me that he got married, I was so happy for him. Then a call that he was going to be a dad. Which was a surprise, because Andy did not want children, but again I was happy for him. Then I called him to let him know that I was going to the USA finals for a Horse show. I was so excited that I called everyone, and Joanne picked up the phone asked who I was and I said , it Pat, and she said "Andy is married, and I said I know, the she said we have a baby, and I said yea I know, then she said don't ever call here again". and she hung up the phone. I did not think about it, I was like OK maybe she was tired, you know with a new baby. I went on with my day. I really never though of it again. See I did not meet Joann, I had no hate for her. And at trial they made it out that I was stalking Andy. I never had any feelings for Andy after we split. So I do not understand how they got motive. Again I lived in NC over 550 miles away for PA. The time line of when Joann went missing on Dec. 15 1994, and me calling her, is not motive. But Andy was pointing the finger at me at all angles. Does anyone see motive?
To really understand this case, you need to sit down and read this book called Convenient Suspect written by Tammy Mal. She writes stories about people who are real murders and that what she though when she started writing this book. But the more she looked into this case, she could see that I was innocent! She found some much evidence that has been contaminated, the case was flawed in some many ways. Her book will tell you the story. Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Convenient-Suspect-Investigation-Railroading-Innocent/dp/B0777SGHL4/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=tammy%20mal&qid=1588982960&sr=8-1&fbclid=IwAR0xwJARGyijcn3BqdWAzXSX0l9C7kM-9UtBxQio4AsMv62neDLzggK1IrI
So when Andy pointed the finger at me, 1 week later after Joann was missing, the NC police came to my mothers to interview me. I had no cuts, scratches, or bruising on my body, as written in the report. When they found Joann and Alex's bodies in a wooded area in PA, on April 9 1995. Joann was shot in the head and badly beaten. This woman fought for her life! How can that be possible that I showed no signs of a fight? Another thing that was never presented in trial was that they found flowers in Joann's shoes, but never tested them either? Why? It seems that this a strange item to find? But then again another strange thing is that Andy moved to Colorado with his ex girlfriend, the one before Joann, they married and divorced, and her family own a nursery that burned to the ground months after Joann went missing. And did anyone bring up the fact that Andy failed 2 or more lie detector tests? And that when the bodies where found, he wasn't in the state of PA? Strange thing to happen after your wife and baby go missing. I was also told that Andy never attended his parent funerals in PA. Really why? And the day Joann went missing she call the real estate agent to cancel buying a house in Colorado. The place that Andy moved to after her death. And what the the woman that stated that Joann was planning on leaving Andy after the holidays? Why did the police not look into these things? Here I am home with my daughter and I am being arrested for a murder that I never committed. My mother hired a lawyer that never tried a case like this, but I really did not think that I need a high priced lawyer, I was innocent, I was going home to my family. Why has this happened, that I been in prison for 23 years.
So I was convicted of 2 life sentences for the murder of these 2 victims, Joann and Alex. This is the hard part, I know I did not commit these murders and they need to get justice for them to. Everyone needs to wake up because this could be you, your wife, your husband, your mother, your father, your children! No one is safe if the justice system is broken and you are putting innocent people in prison. In prison as a lifer I get no shoaling. I have learned the law and have been writing my own appeals because I have no attorney that will take my case. I am asking if you have a heart, look at my case, see that I was wrongfully convicted, get me a new trial. Your donation will help me achieve this goal. I have been in the law library 23 years, and I get the same answer untimely denied, when I file appeals. Again all I am asking is for a fair trial. I know that if I get a fair trial, I will win and be freed. Thank you for reading, please use the links, and watch all this case is. And god Bless Patricia Rorrer
