Patrick McDermott and Olivia Newton John


Patrick McDermott, Olivia Newton John’s former boyfriend, was believed to have disappeared on a fishing trip in June 2005. Recent evidence found by private US investigators, however, show that Patrick may have faked his own death to get out of repaying debts and to allow his son to collect a $151,000 insurance policy. Escalando!

Lead investigator Philip Klein, hired by NBC’s Dateline in March 2007, said:

“He’s alive – there’s no doubt in my mind, this guy’s alive. Maybe in his mind if he stages his death, the insurance policy will pay off his debts and he can leave his child a gift by pretending he’s dead.”

By setting up the website findpatrickmcdermott.com, investigators began tracking hits from what they believe is a boat traveling along the Mexican and South American coastlines. Investigators also say they have sightings of Patrick from 17 different witnesses.




Patrick McDermott Biography

Patrick Kim McDermott is half-Korean, and was adopted by an American couple from Korea. He was a light technician. On March 1, 1992, he married actress Yvette Nipar, who was four months pregnant with his child. The couple divorced 15 months later on June 30, 1993, and Patrick owes Yvette back child support, which he had been court-ordered to pay prior to his death/disappearance.

Patrick McDermott began seeing Olivia Newton John in 1996 after her divorce from Matt Lattanzi. They dated on and off for about nine years up until his ill-fated fishing trip in June 2005.

Patrick McDermott disappeared on June 30, 2005 at the age of 48 years old. He boarded chartered fishing boat Freedom off the coast of San Pedro, California. The 22 passengers and three crew members gave conflicting reports about the whereabouts of Patrick throughout the trip. It was not noticed that he was missing until July 6, when he failed to show up for a family event. His body has never been recovered.

The Coast Guard investigated, and in November 2008 released their report, which states that Patrick McDermott “most likely” drowned on his fishing trip. However, many people seem unsatisfied with this explanation, and they are convinced he faked his own death to avoid past debts, including the $8,000 in back child support owed to ex-wife Yvette Nipar. Investigators for NBC’s Dateline believe he is living on a boat off the Western coast of Mexico, where he moves between there and the South American coastline.
