Family of Patsy Sparks Hopes for Answers

By  | 

Just Thursday we brought you details of the Washington County Sheriff's Office cold case team.

Now we have the latest on another case it's working on.

This case involves Patsy Sparks, a Marietta resident who disappeared in April of 1992 and whose body was found three years later in Noble County.

Departments in two states and three counties have been involved in the investigation of the case.

Washington County's cold case division has a person of interest but, just like the Ray Clark murder investigation, they're still searching for evidence.

Sparks was last seen alive when she was at a bar then located on Juliana Street.

Her family still holds out hope someone can come forward who has information of help to investigators.

"We're just looking for justice and peace for Patsy. And until someone has to answer for what they did to her, for their crimes against her, there isn't any silence," says Jessica Whipkey, Patsy Sparks' cousin.

Whipkey fears the longer time goes on since Sparks' body was found, the more difficult it will be to find and charge her killer.

Saturday beginning at 5 p.m., Sparks' family is organizing a walk in her memory.

It will begin at Sparks' former residence in the 300 block of Franklin Street in Marietta's west side and will continue to the Washington County Courthouse.
