This recap of Netflix series Unsolved Mysteries season 1, episode 2, “13 Minutes” contains information on the disappearance of Patrice Endres.
How does Unsolved Mysteries, season 1, episode 2, “13 Minutes” open?
Pistol Black, Patrice Endres’ son, explains his last morning with his mother — a normal morning on April 15, 2004; she dropped him off at school. While in biology class he was asked to go to the principal’s office. They asked Pistol to call his mother but there was no answer.
A positive and happy person
Pistol explains that his mother was involved in everything in his life. One day, she became passionate about cutting hair and opened her own salon. Patrice Endres’ friend Nancy says how she was so fun, happy, and positive. Unsolved Mysteries season 1, episode 2, “13 Minutes” has the same kind of theme as the first episode — a strange disappearance.
Rob Endres, Patrice’s husband, met her by having a haircut and felt the luckiest man alive. When they realized that Patrice Endres was missing, the police visited the salon and there wasn’t any evidence to point them in any direction. The police could not announce a kidnapping because there was nothing to suggest anything. The police asked her friend Nancy if Patrice would leave her son but she flat out said no. Two weeks before she disappeared, Patrice Endres asked Pistol where would he go if she disappeared — he didn’t think anything at the time.
13 minutes to account for
The police analyzed Patrice’s appointments and looked at phone records — at 11.50 am she didn’t answer the phone — some customers felt she was unusually distracted and distant that day. There were 13 minutes before 11:37 and 11:50 to account for. A witness saw a Chevy Lumina and SUV outside. The witnesses saw two people outside the salon in front of the cars. One of the witnesses believes the Lumina holds a key to all this.
Friends suggested that Patrice Endres’ husband Rob was very protective and jealous — he felt like he didn’t get enough attention. Pistol suggested that Rob didn’t like the split in attention. Rob claims that Pistol was jealous and out of control, essentially the other way round. Pistol claims that Patrice was considering a divorce two weeks before his mother’s disappearance. Pistol went to live with his father after his mother disappeared. Unsolved Mysteries season 1, episode 2, “13 Minutes” sees a vicious conflict here between husband and the son and it is sad to see.
After weeks had gone by, Gary Hilton became a suspect — he had murdered another woman before, and he didn’t need a motive as he hunts for opportunities. Jeremy Jones also became a suspect as he liked to sexually abuse women — Jeremy talked about Patrice Endres and stated that he kidnapped her. Jeremy recanted his confession and there was no evidence linking him to the kidnap and murder.
How does Unsolved Mysteries, season 1, episode 2, “13 Minutes” end?
At school, Pistol was told that they found his mother’s remains — she had been killed. Eyes went back on Rob but he had an alibi based on a receipt. The investigators couldn’t completely eliminate Rob but the chances were low. The investigators still wanted to know what happened in these 13 minutes and are still looking for answers. Rob has her ashes and Pistol has never seen them — Pistol is distraught; he didn’t get anything, no pictures, nothing. Pistol hopes he can be half the person his mother was. Unsolved Mysteries season 1, episode 2, “13 Minutes” looks into the peculiar disappearance of Patrice Endres that rocked family and friends and left the police dumbfounded.
