Mr and Mrs Petrone,rnrnI stumbled onto this story about a year ago. I still check periodically to see if there has been any new information. I can only imagine the heart break you both must feel every day. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and I hope that the mystery is someday solved and you will be able to find out what happened to Richard and Danielle. rnrnSincerely,rnrnCarrie Paone

I am a retired private investigator and have been following this story since the tragedy occurred. I was living at the time in Deptford, NJ, a Philadelphia suburb. The area is inundated with ponds and waterways. It has always been my belief that they are underwater somewhere and won't be discovered until we have an extreme drought. I followed up the case with a reporter who had been working on it and he said this was one of the scenarios under investigation. A kidnapping of two people outside a night club in this area of Philadelphia seems so hard to have pulled off. Although this seems to be the main focus of the investigation at this point. rnrnMy heart goes out to your family and I hope in the new year you can find some closure.rnrnYou are always in my prayers.rnrnJudy Fuller

I missed you the night the Phillies won the pennant Just as I missed you when Bruce played the full Born to Run show at the Spectrum. I miss you everytime I hold your grandson just as I do every time I see Angela's face. I miss the laughter you brought to your Mother's eyes. I miss the enthusiasm you brought to all your dreams. I miss the spirit you carried with you in all you did. I miss your passion,your intensity,your smile,your grace. I miss your music, hell I even miss your moods. I miss your wonder at discovering new things. I miss you more as time goes by and the list of special moments without you grows. I miss you my Son. Not a day goes by without the hurt reminding me of the love I miss, so especially today, thank you for the gift of your love.

I live just outside of Philadelphia and have followed this story for years. My prayers and thoughts go out to both families. I have posted one of the banners on my website. I do business in Chester, Montgomery, Berks and Philadelphia counties. I hope it helps.

Broken hearts and broken souls,shadows of what used to be. Not a day dawns without a tear in memory.Your heart,your spirit, your smile, your soul,the way your joy could fill a room are memories that carry us thru the day.The past is a comfort,a treasure to wrap our hearts around.But soon reality turns our thoughts to the loss...of a father, leaving his beautiful Angela to face a future without the love and strength only a dad can give.Of a brother,who never forgot what it meant to be a big brother to his sisters.Of a son,who made us a family and taught us what it meant to love someone more than you ever imagined.Of a young man on the verge of his true future.As your parents we could sense how you were pulling it all together,and its that loss and how your future was stolen that adds to the pain.But none of that can dim the memories...and so today we will gather to celebrate you and the joy you brought to all of us....our lives are better for you having been here.We love you...we miss you...happy birthday sweet prince ....Mom and Dad

Rich,rnrnI can't believe it's your 40th birthday. Dom will be 9 the same day. I was telling him how you used to call him on his birthday since you guys shared that date. I believe he will be at your parents on Saturday with Frankie for a barbecue. You are sadly missed by many and hopefully soon your parents will have the answers they seek and so deserve. Tracy

Rich and Margie,rnrnMy mom and I came to an 80th birthday party for her girlfriend at Gilane's on June 30th.

I think of you all of the time, buddy. It's been so long since you've been gone. I really miss you and wish you were here. This act that took you from us was so senseless...and still, there is no justice. It just sucks.

Hello...rnrnI don't know anyone involved in this case, but I live in Philadelphia and have long wondered how two people could just disappear along with their car. I had no idea it had been four years. I'm so sorry that your families have to go through this and I hope you get some resolution soon. rnrnrnTake care.

It's obvious who did this, Danielle's husband without a doubt!

With no hesitation Marge offered to help our family in our efforts to raise funds for our daughter that has MS. She gave graciously and generously and without hesitation to our cause. Then we find out that she is carrying a burden such as this. Our family wishes we could do something to ease her pain. We can only pray for the entire Petrone family and hope that something good will happen in the near future.Richard is in our prayers everyday.rnrnrnAnthony DiMartino......a classmate of Marge's from St Thomas Aquinas

Rich and Marge, love and continued strength to you both. This is a terrible tale and justice will prevail. It has been years since we last saw each other but the memories are clear. I want you both to know that my thoughts and prayers will be added to the many others being offered and in time, the truth will be known, faith in God will ensure that it is. Danny Bates

My thoughts and prayers are with you always and especially today. I remember Richard since he was 5 years old. I know my son Thomas Romantini feels the sadness as well. If there is anything we can do to help please, let us know.rnMarie Romantini
Marie Romantini, Wednesday, February 18, 2009


I stumbled on your web site today. Could not help but feel the emptiness you feel since most families share similar losses of one type or another. I truly believe that God has made and planned everything here on earth. There is a verse in the Bible,"everything secret will be revealed before the great judgement day" We have so much corruption and greed in this day and age I am hoping that the FBI has agents who are not all crooks; will look into this financial mess as it would stem back to developers,realtors, bankers,and greedy people who will do anything to get ahead,except an honest day's work. The local government offices here are run by crooks and I feel we have too much of this, that is why we have wall street problems. A lot of people are gaining the world and loosing their souls...thoughts for investigating:auto thieft, real estate thieft, drug dealers got wrong couple, developers need property, financial deal gone sour...other I know how it feels to not know what has happened. One of my sons had a wreck in 2005. He had to be resusitated. He still can not remember getting into his car or what happened but I am thankful that GOD saved him and he is able to function on the level he can.(bad head trauma for the fourth time) still can't remember...God is awsom. I'm sure you will get some answers soon. Your son had my son and grandsons birthday if it was August 29th.

As always I am at a loss for words on how to express my heartfelt sorrow on this sad day. I think of all of you so many times and always pray that today will be the day an answer comes. Please know that you are always in my thoughts and prayers. I wish so much there was something I could do to ease your pain. Know that my whole family holds you in their heart and are praying for you.rnrnThe Price Family
Diane Price, Wednesday, February 18, 2009


To the Petrone family:rnrnJust want you to know that you guys are always in my prayers. I cannot believe four years have gone by. I still remember the day that my ex-husband, Frankie Palamone, called to tell me that Richie was missing. I thought it was some kind of joke. Richie is the sweetest person; I couldn't imagine that anything bad could have happened to him. God would never let that happen, not to Richie! My son Christian just told me yesterday that he remembers the last conversation he had with Richie and it was in our deli and it was about the price of butter. He even remembers what Richie was wearing that day. It's amazing the things that stick in a kid's mind. rnrnPlease know that there are lots of people who pray that one day this case will be solved and the person(s) who harmed Richie and Danielle will be brought to justice. Although there is no punishment strong enough for someone who could take another human being's life.

Nothing Gold Can Stay
rnrnNature's first green is gold,
rnHer hardest hue to hold.
rnHer early leaf's a flower;
rnBut only for an hour.
rnThen leaf subsides to leaf.
rnSo Eden sank to grief,
rnSo dawn goes down to day.
rnNothing gold can stay.

Every time I hear about this or read about this, the same thing is said "vanished into thin air leaving restaurant" has anyone give it much thought that just maybe, they didn't leave the restaurant?? Is there rooms, basement in restaurant that can be searched? Just an idea that I had to put out there. Thanks, Linda S

Dear Richard:rnrnThis is the date we all dread coming. This is the day we lost a wonderful human being. This is the day that has left your family and friends devastated -- never to be the same again. This is the day we remember you -- the one and only Little Rich. This is the day to say we love you and miss you always. This is the day we ask that you watch over your loved ones and give them the strength they so desperately need. This is the day to say that we will never forget you -- never. Love, Rosemarie

Please know that the Petrone and Ottobre families are in my thoughts and prayers. Although not directly involved in the investigation any longer, know that I have never forgotten about Richard and Danielle and that I hope closure is brought to you soon. Take care and may God bless you.

Rich and Marge,rn Not a day goes by that I don't think about Richard and you all. The picture of Richard in his hockey uniform brings back so many memories. You so deserve an end to this awful nightmare and I can only hope that those who are responsible for this will pay dearly. My thoughts remain with you. Betsy
Betsy, Tuesday, January 20, 2009


Rich and Margie,rnSunday and I were watching "Without a Trace" when I saw your son's name appear on the screen. I immediately researched on the web and found this site. I tried to get a phone number for you so I could call and personally express my condolences and support, but I failed in that attempt. We are devastated by your loss. I cannot imagine anything worse than outliving our children, and having this loss compounded by not knowing your son't whereabouts must be unbearable. I feel terrible that we lost touch and I was not there for you. I often think that the close friends that I made in my youth have never been repeated in my later travels. I count both of you among those close friends.I hope that you will e-mail me your contact information so I can call and offer any help or support that I can. You are both in our prayers. Rich and Sunday Cavallaro

I just wanted to say that even though I do not know the Petrone family nor Richard...this tragedy has hit my heart. From what I see written here Richard was a kind, loving and overall good person. My thoughts and prayers are with you're family and I hope 2009 brings closure. God bless.....
