Relationships with ColleaguesEdit
Patterson had a close personal and professional relationship with Abby, often sending her evidence for analysis as well as sending birthday gifts every year on her birthday, though by her own volition they had never met in person. Patterson's final act before attempting to return fire at his assassins was to mail Abby evidence. Abby felt a degree of guilt over his death because, he wanted to meet her the evening prior to his death, but Abby had told him to come and see her the next day because she had other commitments.
Indeed after his murder, Abby visited his corpse in the morgue in order to achieve a sense of closure for herself.
