Cold Case: Community mourns Patricia Morton


WILKES-BARRE, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)- People in Luzerne County held a candlelight vigil for a woman murdered more than a decade ago.

Friends and family gathered at the Luzerne County Courthouse in Wilkes-Barre to honor Patricia Morton. Police say Morton was killed in her Hazle Street home in Wilkes-Barre in 2006. No arrests have ever been made in the case.

That’s left Morton’s loved ones longing for answers and justice.

“Hoping that maybe someday, somebody will call a lead in that will help us bring this person that did this to Patty to justice,” said Catherine Stephens, sister of Morton.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact police.
