HS3 Killings may be linked, police say By NANCY BADERTSCHER Richard Tamber heard the news in a telephone call Monday from one of his children. Authorities in Forsyth County plan to investigate possible links between Gary Michael Hilton, a suspect in the disappearance and slaying of hiker Meredith Emerson, and Tamber’s daughter’s killing nearly four years ago. “The first thing that came to my mind was I hope we can put an ending on whoever did this,” Tamber said from his business in Birmingham. Tamber’s daughter, Patrice Endres, was 38 when she disappeared from her beauty salon north of Cumming on April 15, 2004. Her remains were found in a wooded area of nearby Dawson County on Dec. 6, 2005. Hilton has been charged with kidnapping Emerson, who vanished New Year’s Day while hiking on the Freeman Trail in Vogel State Park. Authorities have said there also could be a connection between the Emerson case and the disappearance and presumed slayings last October of John and Irene Bryant, an elderly couple from North Carolina — as well as Endres’ disappearance and death. Capt. Frank Huggins, spokesman for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, said the common links in the Emerson and Endres cases include the fact that clues to both women’s deaths were found in Forsyth County. Late last week, police found three bloody fleece garments and Emerson’s wallet and ID in a parking lot trash receptacle near a Cumming QuikTrip. Across the street from the trash bin they found Emerson’s dog, Ella, wandering in a Kroger parking lot. Emerson’s body was found Monday night in Dawson County. Tamber said his family longs to see the person responsible for his daughter’s death arrested. “And we defi - nitely want justice,” he said. He said he thinks of his daughter every day and still frets over unanswered questions about how long she lived and how much she suffered. “It’s just bad,” Tamber said.
