Netflix is featuring a case from 2013 involving Pat Mullins on an episode of “Unsolved Mysteries.” The episode called, “Body in the Bay” looks into the circumstances surrounding his death.
Pat’s widow, Jill Mullins, is hoping the episode brings new attention to her husband’s case.
“I am beyond thrilled. I’ve tried to keep this in the news over the years. I always put posters around and I had bus benches for a while. Right now, I’ve got a big billboard out there on I-75,” said Jill.
She had a billboard installed on I-75 northbound near Ellenton to encourage people to watch Volume 3, Episode 7 of “Unsolved Mysteries.”
The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office ruled Pat’s death as “undetermined.”
Jill said at first, detectives told her it was a suicide.
Jill said her husband’s boat was discovered at the mouth of the Manatee River. Days later, his body was recovered with an anchor tied to his waist and he had suffered a gunshot wound to the head.
There is a $20,000 reward being offered for any information that solves this case.
Anyone with any information on the case is asked to contact the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office.
