What Really Happened to Alexis Patterson?
7 year old Alexis Patterson of Milwaukee, WI went missing in May 2002 after her stepfather, LaRon Bourgeois, walked her to school. Alexis was not in class on the day she went missing, but was reportedly seen by classmates on the playground that morning. Alexis attended Hi Mount Elementary School, which was one block from her mother Ayanna Patterson’s home.
Bourgeois failed a polygraph test, but the questions that were failed were not released to the public. Investigators did not believe the step father played any involvement in Alexis’ disappearance. Ayanna separated from LaRon shortly after Alexis disappeared. Kenya Campbell, Alexis’ biological father was imprisoned during her disappearance. Investigators also ruled him out as a being involved.
In July 2016, Milwaukee Police received information from a man named Joshua Miller of Bryan, OH who believed his ex wife, Lisa Miller, was indeed Alexis Patterson. Joshua and Lisa married in 2009 and divorced in 2013. Joshua told reporters that there were things about Lisa’s past that did not add up. Joshua said Lisa had no memory of her childhood prior to the age of ten. Joshua traveled to Milwaukee with his son (that he shares with Lisa) to meet with Ayanna. He told Colleen Henry of WISN 12 that Ayanna “knows that’s her child.” He said Alexis and Lisa have a birth mark in the “exact same spot.”
Lisa Miller was able to provide a birth certificate that says she was born in 1988 in Belize. Alexis was born in 1995.
In July 2016, Milwaukee Police stated that DNA results indicated Lisa was not Alexis. However, Ayanna questioned the results stating that the police department used a toothbrush from 2002 that may not have belonged to Alexis. Ayanna also stated that she had just given the investigators her own DNA a day prior to the results being released.
Ayanna believes Lisa is in fact Alexis. “She is too much like me,” says Ayanna. “She has the same mole I have, my daughters have and her daughter has.” Ayanna also says Lisa has the same birth mark, bump on her pinky finger and scar under her right eye as Alexis.
Joshua spent four years working to expose the case and does not trust the DNA results. “I feel if I can put her into safety and reunite her with her mother and keep them kids away from that man then I will do anything in my power to do that,” Joshua told Fox 6 Now. Joshua alleges that the FBI is investigating what could be something bigger with Alexis’ disappearance.
The Conspiracy Theory
The theory is that Lisa Miller is Alexis Patterson and Ayanna and Joshua are aware of it, but for whatever reason they may have been instructed to keep quiet.
According to a source, Bryan, OH is a town that is made up of missing children. In other words, the town is filled with people who have no clue who they really are. Someone belonging to a Facebook group called The Whole Milwaukee created a post back in July 2016 with this allegation. The post included pictures of missing children from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois and Michigan. Side by side images of the missing children and some of the young adults linked to Lisa Miller’s Facebook page showed chilling resemblances. The entire Facebook page was deleted shortly after.
To protect Lisa’s identity, I will not post any of her pictures. Lets just say, she looks like Alexis Patterson. Even Wisconsin senator Lena Taylor said she got “chills” when she saw the wedding photo of Joshua and Lisa. There was also a photo circulating of Ayanna and Lisa’s two children together in Milwaukee. Ayanna and Lisa’s daughter look very much alike
Joshua and Lisa married in 2009 when Alexis would have been only 14 years old. Which leads to two important, but unanswered questions :
Why did Milwaukee police and news outlets break the story prior to investigation?
How did Joshua connect Lisa to Alexis?
Pay attention to the statement Joshua made after the DNA results were revealed. He said he wanted to get Lisa and her kids into safety, “away from that man.” What man? The man that kidnapped her? An abusive boyfriend? Who?
Missing children facts from CNN.com :
According to the FBI’s National Crime Information Center (NCIC) Missing Person File, there are 88,089 active missing person records, of which juveniles under the age of 18 account for 32,121 (36.5%) of the records. (as of December 31, 2017)The Second National Incidence Studies of Missing, Abducted, Runaway and Thrownaway Children (NISMART-2), released by the Department of Justice in 2002 and spanning the years 1997 to 1999, reported that of the 797,500 children reported missing in a one-year period, 203,900 were abducted by family members and 58,200 were abducted by non-relatives. One-hundred and fifteen were classified as being taken by a stranger.
There are conspiracy theorists that say “big brother” is behind most of the missing children cases in the US. If you would like to know more about that theory, you would need to do your own research and see what you find.
Is there more to the story? Are Milwaukee and Bryan officials in on the secret?
