Some 12 hours before police found her dead in her apartment Sunday afternoon, Karly Patterson had asked for authorities’ help in removing her recent ex-boyfriend from her property. Kyle Kerr, 20, had come with a friend to Patterson’s new apartment sometime after midnight Sunday. Helen Police Chief Jim Couch said Patterson, an 18-year-old manager of Bodensee Restaurant, told police she didn’t want Kerr at her house.
