What Happened to Paul Kochu

Donation protected
Thank you for your interest in our campaign. Paul Raymond Kochu was born May 29, 1992, raised in South Coventry Township, Chester County PA, graduated from Duquesne University School of Nursing, Pittsburgh PA in May 2014, was employed  at Allegheny General Hospital as a medical intensive care nurse, and mysteriously went missing from the South Side of Pittsburgh,PA in December 2014 and was found lifeless in the Ohio River in Wheeling, WV in March 2015. Our family has come to a point where we feel there  are too many unsnswered questions as to what exactly happened to him. We have had an attorney working tirelessly for us since January, 2015. Our requests, through their office, for information about the investigation or answers to our concerns from the authorities in Pittsburgh have been denied. We are now enlisting the services of a local forensic pathologist to independently review the autopsy, and a laboratory that will test blood and fiber samples from the clothes that were returned to us. In adddition we have been consulting with a private detective who has experience in cases and circumstances similar to Paul's.  It has been 20 months since we last spoke to or spent time with Paul. Your contribution will not bring him back to this world. It may, however, help bring into focus the events preceeding his disappearance and untimely death. The questions left unanswered are unbearable. We hope that with your help we will be able to understand what happened to Paul.
