In 2007, Patrick Rust was a 24-year old Sergeant in the U.S. Army, who had just recently returned from his second deployment. A native New Yorker, Patrick had enlisted just months after 9/11, and his time in the military had taken him through training in Oklahoma and Texas, and two separate deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan.
In March of that year, Patrick moved off-post for the first time, with a roommate he had known for roughly fifteen months. The two lived together for a single day before Patrick went missing, in the early morning hours of March 16th.
In the hours before his disappearance, Patrick had made a suspicious withdrawal from an ATM, made and received a series of erratic phone calls, taken a mysterious detour with acquaintances that others describe as "troubled," and encountered a blast from his past in the most unlikely of settings. All of it painted a very convoluted picture, which investigators have not been able to decipher in over a decade.
Part one of two.
