That June he went out with Jackie Haggart, but, as Lois told investigators, “it was just for kicks to see what he could get.” He eventually settled on Patty and that summer he gave her the onyx ring he had received from his grandmother as a confirmation gift years earlier. Patty, however, didn’t act like a girl going steady and seldom wore Michael’s ring. As Lois said “he just didn’t care if she was mad or not, or if her feelings got hurt.” Lois wasn’t the only one to notice how Michael treated Patty. Patty loved going to the dances and seldom missed one.
Her neighbor and friend Terry Hutchinson recounted a story where Patty took off the ring and placed it on the radio. Michael, who claimed he couldn’t dance and didn’t especially care for the kids who went, didn’t like her going with her friends and flirting with other boys.
He played on the freshman football team but due to his poor grades he was ineligible for the JV team that coming fall. Initially Michael was somewhat ambivalent about Patty. “No, it’s in my pocket, Patty.” He gave her the ring back and she dutifully slipped it on.

The incident flustered Patty but as far as Michael was concerned if she wanted his ring she had to wear it all of the time. Whenever Mike took Pat out he tried to belittle her and would usually embarrass her in front of other kids.” The couple began bickering about small, petty things and Michael, more often than not, reduced Patty to tears, dismissing her reaction as just being a “baby.” Their most serious disagreements were with the weekly teen dances.
Meanwhile Patty was becoming a petite blue-eyed blonde who had no problem attracting the attention of boys.
She was a conscientious student and was active in the school band and chorus.
