Valley Voice Exclusive: Elly Patterson Found Dead

MILBOROUGH -- A community is in shock tonight following the discovery of the body of Mrs Elly Patterson, 58, at her home on Sharon Park Drive. The late wife of local dentist Dr John Patterson has been suffering from a period of instability for many months, but close friends attest that she had been recovering.

Sgt Brad Luggsworth, OPP, confirmed that the body was discovered at the bottom of the basement steps and that the police have not ruled out foul play. The house, on the corner of Sharon Park Drive and Lynn Lane, has been classified as a crime scene and police are appealing to anyone who might have been in the vicinity Friday night or early Saturday morning.

It is understood that Mrs Patterson hosted a family gathering Friday night.  Neighbour Steve Nichols said, "We were on the deck.  We could hear shouting and doors slamming from down the street, but we've lived here for decades and are used to it.  I can't believe this has happened."

Mrs Patterson, a former contributor to the Valley Voice and more recently the owner of Lilliput's bookstore, had been a resident of Milborough for more than 30 years and was mother of three children, including author Michael Patterson, who has informed us that he will be writing her obituary for tomorrow's paper.
