Mr. Patrick Cox was raised in Palestine, TX. His mother lives there. Palestine is in East Texas about 60 miles south of Tyler, TX.
Maybe you can find him there???
Apparently Mr. Cox "took off," as filmed by a TV news crew, in Houston, TX which was the main location of his business. He was in front of a nice home with a very nice vehicle.
Palestine, TX is not the home of the sharpest tacks in the tool kit. It is a small town with a small town outlook on the world. People there are not very helpful because they are apparently owning many deleterious traits.
