Patrick McStay Suspects 3 In Family’s Disappearance
"I have exhausted and have so much information on three possible persons of interest," Patrick McStay told CBS News. "All have a motive." Talking about on individual with a long rap sheet, which includes attempted murder, McStay said, "He has money, was in prison... He absolutely had a motive.”
“Somebody hired somebody. To kill a child is something totally different. You have to be a cold blooded killer,” he continued. "Only two things could have happened. Either there was a hired killer who killed them or the children could have recognized them - this person."
"I knew there was more to this,” McStay added. “I knew they didn't walk away.”

McStay Remains Unearthed In Mojave Desert
On Nov. 13, an off-road motorcyclist came across bones in the Mojave Dessert on the outskirts of Victorville, Calif. DNA testing conducted on the remains in the shallow graves proved that they belonged to Joseph McStay and his wife Summer McStay. Other remains found at the scene are thought to be that of the couple’s children Joey, 3, and Gianni, 4, but are awaiting testing.
Michael McStay, Joseph's brother, admitted at a news conference that the news of the remains was difficult to bear, but that it also gave him some solace. "It's not really the outcome we were looking for... but it gives us courage to know that they're together and they're in a better place," he said. "It's been a tough road."
