  1. the hill kids says:

    patrick w hill of modale iowa , pat and peggy hill / layton have raped countless babies – preteens patrick raped all his own children boys and girls alike ,peggy helped and babysat and they said get them before they are 2 years old and they wont tell on you .pat says all the kids liked it . now the victims of pat and peggy are aaa addicts mentel ect .no body ever did anything to stop patrick hill or protect us little children . signed the hill kids n jonny gosh in pedo hills pickup camper .

    • Kimberly Frazier says:

      My question is, is there any solid proof of this claim of this man and woman raping children? Are there police reports on record of such abuses? Surely if this many children have been so horrifically raped/molested, someone would have come forward before now and an investigation would’ve been launched.

      As it is, I doubt the veracity of this comment and question why it has been posted to this site. I’ve found nothing of public record to support this claim and in fact, the only other mention I’ve found has been “The Hill Kids” leaving a similiar comment on someone’s obituary/memorial page. WIthout absolute proof that such crimes have been committed, the concern is that this kind of statement is purposely inflammatory and harmful to the parties mentioned in the remarks, not to mention extremely libelous, which has the potential for legal issues to arise if the people mentioned in the statement find it out.

      I’m not saying that the statements aren’t possibly true, but I suspect this is someone’s idea of a sick joke, and what a truly sick joke it is, signing the name “Johnny Gosh (sic)” in an attempt to be funny. Please, if this is a sick joke, take your tasteless humor somewhere else and far away from a site designed for unsolved homicides and missing persons. Grieving families don’t need to see that kind of tacky remark on here.

    • Shari says:

      I have known Pat most of my life, and know he is a POS. I was lucky to have enough information to keep my children away from him, however had no proof to be able to substantiate charges. Just know he died a coward, just as he lived, and no one is mourning his death. There will be no service for him.

  2. the hill kids says:

    Proof i only have the word of the children, police reports buried somewere i suppose,no one ever did anything.,come forward i suppose the children were all too ashamed to come forward and feared for our lives,re legal issue if the pedofiles in the statments find out ,shout it from the mountain tops i would like to face them in court to expose them to the whole world.but i think its more likely ill be shot dead,im sorry for writing jonny gosh i would take it back if i could, its just that he told me a story of blacked out drunk driving his red ford pickup with a camper in iowa ,and i thought he might have abducted children,and he spoke of a lil girl in NY,and he was a baby photographer. and he never did any jail time for all the children he harmed.he was in st peter for the criminally insane for a bit,but charge was listed as berg after he went to court for rapeing my 8 year old sister,im sure to this day he poss child porn,and suspect for other child sex crimes, but the statue of limitations has run out on raping all us in MN,bellview NE .omaha NE, he raped me in texas when i was 12 is their a statue of limitation there? im sorry for posting here i just wanted to warn people,and im so sorry for missing kids and murder victims familys.i hope there is a judgment day.i have forgiven so much in my life,but have not been able to forgive my father, such a monster has no guilt no remorse i hope he will get judgment in the next world ,hes just laughing in this world.i hope the killers and childrapists dont have a place in heaven at the feast with all us kindhearted good caring loving people,its no joke sorry if its tacky ,

    • Nikki Behnke says:

      I am so sorry for you, your siblings, and all the other children that man harmed… you all deserved better than that!! :'(

  3. Tom Neulieb says:

    I believe every word you are saying. I want to help you. I have more that 50 years of experience with this, courts, therapies, etc., and was also a victim. You may never heal, but your burden can be lightened. Be careful where you place your trust. It is very unlikely some one who has not been a victim can really grasp what has been taken from you and why you wrote what you did. Trust the person you confide in, or, as you already know, it will backfire on you. Sadly, being dismissed, is why so many victims give up.

    I am also disturbed about some things I read between the lines. First I want to ask you to please read Noreen Gosch’s book, “Why Johnny Can’t Come Home.” You will not feel so alone. Noreen will also help you if you contact her and she will believe what you tell her. I know her to be a very honest (and highly misunderstood) woman.) You also need to get into a group or therapy. The University of Iowa Psychiatric Department can be trusted. The way you write tells me volumes, too personal and detailed to be shared here. People who are sexually abused get very fragmented, depersonalized, scattered, and emotional. It’s ok. I know you were just reaching out when you threw in Johnny Gosch.. I can’t tell if you are a boy or girl or if you are or were in the red pickup with a camper. I think you were saying Patrick told you he had a blackout and was driving that red pick up and you were wondering if he could have been involved in Gosch kidnapping. What I want you to do is email me away from here. I understand exactly why you would fear for your life. I am not even sure if you are a Hill. If you are, it was very brave to even talk about it at all. I understand why you don’t want to put details here and you shouldn’t, but I am disturbed about St. Peter/NY/Nebraska/MN/Texas and want to look up some records. Please email me and I will do what I can to help you.

  4. HiLL says:

    I think you were saying “Patrick told you he had a blackout and was driving that red pick up” in iowa, and you were wondering if he could have been involved in the Gosch kidnapping. 100% correct sir although i witnessed him raping children first hand .people are so mad at me for posting this, oh well they are vary embarrassed i suppose. so years later i heard he was babysitting some grand children, infants in modal Iowa, OMG my bro stated he would not dare molest my children. “Wake up” in denial, are you kidding me, i know he could never be left with any baby without molesting them get real. patrick hill peggy hill / layton modale iowa. Have they ever been alone with your children Then they have been raped by patrick hill of modale iowa .

  5. HiLL The-children-all-liked-it-patrick-hill-says says:

    The majority of American rape victims (61%) are raped before the age of 18; furthermore, an astounding 29 percent (29%) of all forcible rapes occurred when the victim was less than 11 years old. Eleven percent (11%) of rape victims are raped by their fathers or step-fathers, and another 16 percent (16%) are raped by other relatives.
    The study of a nationally representative sample of state prisoners serving time for violent crime in 1991 showed that, of those prisoners convicted of rape or sexual assault, two-thirds victimized children and almost one-third of the victims were the children or step-children of the assailant.
    In a study of male survivors of child sexual abuse, over 80 percent (80%) had a history of substance abuse, 50 percent (50%) had suicidal thoughts, 23 percent (23%) attempted suicide
