Karen Ramsey was victim of homicide

PATTERSON—On Thursday, the state police announced that Karen Ramsey, whose skeletal remains were discovered last month during excavation work at the site of a new house being built near the town line between Patterson and Southeast, had been murdered.

Public Information Officer, Troop K According to Trooper A.J. Hicks, the coroners office and the investigating investigator have confirmed that Karen’s death was caused by homicide. Her DNA was also used to identify her. At this time, the cause of death is not being disclosed.

This was the second significant statement made by state police about the mysterious case this week.

Ramsey was never reported missing, according to Putnam County law enforcement, and her husband’s first wife had passed quite inexplicably.

Later, State Police verified that our information was provided by investigators who had found the first wife, who is now well and alive in Florida.

In May 1980, Ramsey, a resident of Southeast, vanished from sight.

Investigators from the Carmel Police Department and the New York State Police stated a week after the remains were found that the DNA sample they had taken did not fit the missing Robin Murphy’s profile.

One of the most mysterious disappearances in Putnam County’s history is that of the 17-year-old teen in 1995.

Murphy was last seen at the Shop-Rite Plaza on Route 52 at the Carmel-Kent boundary, and he vanished without a trace on the evening of April 9, 1995.

Her lover worked at the Burger King nearby, and she had planned to meet him there, but it never happened. A few days later, Robin’s wallet and keys were discovered in a grassy area behind the shopping center, while her mother’s car was discovered in the parking lot.

Police have been looking for clues that could have led to Murphy’s discovery in the vicinity of Ice Pond Road on foot, by air, and with dogs on multiple occasions over the years, but they have been unsuccessful. Officers searched the Tilly Foster Mine as well.

Hicks urged anyone with more details to call 845-677-7300, the State Police Troop K headquarters.

According to a police official, the investigation is still underway and will be updated as new details come to light.
