COLD CASE  Patricia Bovin

Patricia Bovin

Patricia Bovin was a single mother who lived in the upper apartment of 790 King St, London Ontario with her sons. On Thursday, April 24, 1969, at approximately 4:00pm, someone attended her home and discovered that she was dead.

London, Ontario - Patricia Bovin was murdered when she was only 22 years old. She lived at 790 King Street in London, Ontario with her two children.

A friend called Patricia on Thursday, April 24th, 1969. When she didn't answer, the friend went by the apartment at 4:00 pm that afternoon and found Patricia's body.

It was a nightmare scene. Patricia's two young boys, aged one and three, were by their mother's body. It was as if they were waiting for her to wake-up. They were sobbing, dirty, and hungry.

The front door that accessed the staircase was unlocked. And a neighbour found a pillow case covered in blood by the front of the building. Therefore, the front door was the probable entry point. There were no obvious signs of forced entry.

The apartment was in disarray. Chairs and other items were scattered around. Not by the murderer, though. The children had moved the items in an attempt to reach food.

Nothing was stolen from the apartment.

Patricia was stabbed over a dozen times in the torso while asleep on the couch. She had no defensive wounds and wasn't sexually assaulted.

Patricia's murder remains unsolved. If you have any information about this murder please call police or Crime Stoppers.
