Atlanta wasn't a safe city in the late 1970s and early 1980s, especially for Black children. Patrick Baltazar was one of the dozens of victims killed by the Atlanta Monster.

was active duty in the Marine Corps at the time, stationed at Camp Lejeune. North Carolina. My father was living in Atlanta, Patrick, Diane and Jacqueline or my three youngest brothers and sisters. They got invited there during the summer to Atlanta. They decided to enroll in school there. Even all the way in north Carolina Russell remembers seeing and hearing the news stories about Atlanta's missing Children, with his younger siblings. Having just moved to Atlanta, Russell felt concerned for their safety. So one day he called his father, I asked him do you think that is? Why is that those kids should be there or maybe they need to be back in Louisiana. And so he said well everything is going to be okay and you know they were gonna go ahead and put them in school and and they are going to be safe. And I said, well I don't have a good feeling about it, but you go ahead and handle it. A few months later, his father called him out of the blue one day. He called me and he asked me, have you seen Patrick? What do you mean? Have I seen Patrick? He's in Atlanta and I'm in camp Lejeune north Carolina And he's 11 years old. I think he was just reaching for straws because now it's in these words, well, you know, Patrick thinks a lot of you and it is a possibility. Maybe got a ticket, caught the bus and went up there to see it says, no, dad, I don't think that would have happened. That's kind of hard for you to say that Patrick, young as he is will try to find me. And north Carolina had never been there before. To the base at all. I was trying to locate me. I just felt that That wasn't something for 11 year old. The way we were raised that Patrick is just, yeah, I said I got a bad feeling. You're not gonna find Patrick alive and I made him angry when I said that. I have that feeling. That. Yeah. How could I finally? Mhm. A week later, the following friday, that's when we got a phone call that they found him. Who called you? My dad. What do you say said that? They found him? Your brother did. He was stabbed several times. They claimed that he got beat with uh a round object and strangled. And I told him I said as well, yeah, I'm gonna talk to my company commander and see if I can come out there to be with you. And that's what I did. Mhm.
