Woman with a short, dark bob and dark-rimmed glasses

Patricia Henderson was born in Oxford, Mississippi, to Brian and Alicia Henderson on August 3, 1977.

She was the oldest of three children, followed one year later by a brother, Jason, and two years later by a sister, Colleen. Brian worked as an accountant for a small manufacturing business, and Alicia took five years off from her bank teller job to raise the children. The couple divorced in 1993.

When Patricia started third grade, she discovered that a Patricia Johnson had moved to town during the summer. The new girl not only proved more popular with classmates, but she also charmed their teachers. Patricia countered by declaring that from then on, she would only answer to Trish.

The change in name brought a change in behavior. Having discovered she wouldn't always be the first-born favorite, Trish learned to forge relationships with whoever had the spotlight or could get her what she needed. She did well in school not because she was gifted or put in the extra time but because she befriended the smart kids, and she lived well because she befriended the rich kids.

After graduating from college with a degree in sociology, Trish continued her practice of developing beneficial relationships in her first full-time job. She pursued the owner of the printing company, where she took in customer orders. They dated for two years before she moved in with him. Six years later, Warren Lee and Trish wed, honeymooning for a month in Mexico.

While the other employees at Oxford Printing said Trish doesn't treat them differently since she married the boss, the women admit she keeps an eye on them when they interact with Warren. There are remarkably few reports of resentment, perhaps because Trish knows how to work those relationships.

Neighbors regard the Lee marriage as happy based on the way they've seen the Lees interact with each other and a lack of loud arguments. The couple has no children, but they do have two dogs and a cat.

Trish met Kelly Moran at a baby shower for Oxford Printing employee Marea Soakes, who went to school with Moran. Trish and Kelly became the life of the party and remained close friends until the time of Kelly's death.

Oxford Printing employee Marea Soakes, who went to school with Moran. But Kelly Moran is from New York and presumably would have gone to school there.

Matt we really do not have substantial knowledge of this Marea Siakes person, for all we know Marea could be from New York and went to grade school with Kelly, or Marea could have attended same beauty school Kelly attended. Right now all we know is Marea was pregnant and possibly had affair with Kelly’s husband according to Trish’s interview. I’m curious as to why detectives have not questioned Kelly’s friends as to who exactly this Marea girl is. According to Trish in her interview Russell met her at her baby shower, and later met with her again “less formally”. I wonder if there is more history between Russel and Marea, and just how long did he have an affair with her. I feel Russel and Marea have known each other on a more personal level....for example before Russel met Kelly. We need Marea interviewed!!!

After reviewing her husband’s interview I’m inclined to believe that Marea was pregnant with Mr. Moran’s child. Warren states that the affair happened 2 years ago, but how long was it going on before the affair actually came to light? Also, when Mr. Moran went out of town on a business trip, was he actually going to see Marea and the child that might possibly be his? Did Mr. Moran pretend to not know Marea when he “met” her at her baby shower?

Theory in progress: David was having an affair with Marea before she ever got pregnant. Kelly knew about the affair going on, and then Marea got pregnant. At Marea’s baby shower David acted like it was the first time he and Marea met, but knowledge of the affair was brought forth when Kelly confided to Trish about the affair either before/after/or during the baby shower.

The blonde hair that was on her scarf had to be Nicolette’s! Trish was interviewed November 1st, that’s two days following Kelly’s death. Why would one of Kelly’s hairs still be on Trish’s scarf in plain sight 2 days after Kelly’s death?! Did Nicolette pay a visit to Trish before detectives interviewed her on Nov 1st at 10:03 am? Also, I noted how Trish was so intrigued with Nicolette’s name(weird crush maybe?). Also, she failed to mention Lorraine’s name when detectives asked her who all was going on the trip, and Lorraine mentioned nothing of the trip in her interview. I sense Trish has psychopathic tendencies. Her biography states she took on a new personality in grade school and forged relationships with people to get what she wants. I’m beginning to wonder if there’s some sort of puppet mastery beginning to surface.
