In February, 1991, the Willoughby family was on vacation in Puerto Peñasco (aka “Rocky Point” and “Arizona’s beach”), Mexico, a tourist town on the Gulf of California popular with Arizonans. The family had rented a house in a small enclave of vacation homes a short distance from Puerto Penasco itself. The family decided to have an outing into town to visit a small museum. At the last minute Dan’s wife Trish decided she would rather take a nap, leaving Dan to take the three children into town. They visited the museum and, having heard that a whale had washed up on the beach, took a detour to view it. They were gone less than two hours. Returning to the rented house they were stunned to find Trish’s battered body lying on the bed in the master bedroom. The local Medical Examiner conducted an autopsy, finding that her skull had been badly fractured and listed the cause of death as multiple stab wounds. Three table knives, one still lodged in Trish’s skull, were recovered from the scene.
Trish had been in business with her mother, Thera Huish, operating a successful mail order vitamin company. Unbeknownst to Dan, Trish and Thera had recently executed a sizable insurance policy on each other’s lives as a buy-sell agreement on the business. Despite Dan’s lack of knowledge of this policy, it soon became the lynch pin of the State’s theory that Dan had killed his wife.
Unfortunately, Dan had been having an affair with a Mexican National, Yesenia Patino. Yesenia was a flamboyant and beguiling young woman who, it was later revealed, had been born a hermaphrodite. As an adult, Yesenia had surgically removed her vestigal male genitalia. This fact, misunderstood by the press as a “sex change” operation, caused a sensation and forever altered the perception of the case and of Dan himself.
Seeking evidence that Dan had drugged Trish to render her vulnerable to attack by Yesenia, the police had Trish’s body exhumed and another autopsy performed, this time in Phoenix, on June 3rd, 1991. No drugs were found in Trish’s system. However, when the casket had been opened for the exhumation, the police did discover a farewell love letter from Dan to Trish which he had privately placed in her hands just before burial. The police did not preserve the letter, nor even mention in their reports having found it; such a loving gesture by Dan would contradict the case they were trying to build against him.
The police continued to pressure Yesenia for a statement they could use against Dan. They first charged her brother with the murder, then dismissed the charge in exchange for his testimony against Dan. Finally, on December 7th, 1991 she caved in to the pressure and gave the prosecution a statement which blamed Dan for the actual killing and claimed that she only entered the house after Trish’s death, and only to steal jewelry and money to give the appearance of a robbery. Dan was arrested the next day, charged with murder and held without bond. Dan’s worst problem was still to happen though. That problem was his defense attorney, David Ochoa. Mr Ochoa was a former County Judge and Dan readily accepted his assurances of victory without question. While Mr Ochoa had tips for Dan on how to graciously accept the not guilty verdict when delivered by the jury, he had little to say about what was being done to prepare for trial. Nor did he mention that the prosecution had effectively hobbled what little preparation he had undertaken by threatening him with obstruction of justice.
The trial was a disaster. In his opening statement, Ochoa offered a theory in which Yesenia had gone to the house, with Dan’s knowledge, extort money from Trish and things had gotten out of hand. Not only was this a fabrication by Ochoa but, as the trial judge pointed out to him at a bench conference, if true, would make Dan guilty of felony murder. Mr Ochoa made few objections during the trial and did even less cross examination. Thera Huish’s “assumption” that Dan had known of the insurance policy came in without objection or question. He did not call as a witness the agents who had written the policy and could testify that Dan had known nothing about it.
When Yesenia took the stand and testified to a new version of events, in which she was the actual killer, Mr Ochoa neither impeached her with her first statement, nor the even more exculpatory taped statement Yesenia had given him and he had in his briefcase. Needless to say, the prosecutor was unruffled that his key witness had changed her story so much; it was still enough to get a conviction, regardless of its accuracy. Dan’s conviction was virtually inevitable and he was sentenced to death on the strength Ms Huish’s assumption; the Judge found that the murder had been committed for pecuniary gain. Dan’s conviction and death sentance were affirmed on appeal, again because Mr Ochoa’s performance at trial left vitually no issues preserved for appeal.
The only thing standing between Dan and the gas chamber was a petition for post conviction relief which allowed him to raise ineffective assistance of counsel. Dan’s luck changed for the better at this point. His friends, stunned by his conviction and death sentance, rallied to his aid, raising money and performing hours of necessary but often tedious work. One major accomplishment was arranging for the video deposition of Yesenia Patino, who was serving a 35 year sentence for the murder in a Mexican prison. Yesenia had made no secret of her distain for the prosecution who, she felt, had bullied and deceived her at every turn. Her testimony was devastating to their case. She told of how the State had openly threatened to prosecute her brother if she did not implicate Dan, their promises of leniency with her Mexican sentance, even of having given her drugs in the courtroom hallway to “calm her down” as she waited to testify.
The state prosecutor and his chief investigator (Kay Lines), told Yesenia that if she did not agree to their lie that Danny was involved, they would bring her to Arizona, and give her the death penalty. However, under Mexican law, its citizens cannot be given the death penalty which is constitutionally prohibited. Yesenia did not know this.
Dan’s new attorneys filed a meticulously researched brief, alleging both ineffective assistance of counsel and prosecutorial misconduct. The brief was filed October 19th, 1997, Dan had been in custody for nearly six years. The evidentiary hearing continued, off and on, for over two years. Finally, on November 17, 1999, the trial judge reversed Dan’s conviction for ineffective assistance of counsel. By ruling on that ground, the judge was able to avoid addressing the misconduct issues which Dan’s lawyers had raised.
To grant a new trial due to ineffective assistance of counsel, the trial court had to find both that counsel’s performance had been deficient and, but for the deficient performance, the result of the trial would have been different. In other words, that Dan would likely have been found not guilty.
Polygraph Test (1991)
Danny Willoughby says that he took and passed a polygraph test conclusively in 1991. His initial attorney had a copy of this as well as his family attorney. He assures that both of them remember 100% of Willoughby taking and successfully passing the test. The company that administered the test, has gone out of business.
Although Willoughby, his attorneys and the prosecutor all saw the report, he was denied using it in court, and now it appears to be lost, writes Willoughy. He swears that this is the 100% truth, and verifyable, if only someone cared enough to produce this very exculpatory document.
How you can help
Mr. Willoughby’s letter to you:
My name is Dan Willoughby and I am an inmate at Arizona State Prison. I was sent to death row in 1992 after my conviction in 1992.
I was awarded a new trial in 1999 when Judge Howe overturned my conviction due to gross ineffective assistance of counsel, laced heavily with egregious investigative and prosecutorial misconduct.
The state’s case began to erode when it’s star witness, and linchpin of their case, Yesenia Patino, changed her 1992 trial testimony. Ms. Patino, incarcerated in a Mexican prison, confessed fully to this homicide, and exonerated me entirely from any foreknowledge, or participation in this crime. These confessions came in the form of letters to Judge Howe, the Arizona Attorney General’s office, the American Consulate in Hermosillo, Mexico, the Mexican Attorney General, multiple interviews before state and defense attorneys and investigators, and culminated in a court ordered video deposition. In this video deposition Ms Patino gave a step by step recreation of how she alone committed the homicide, totally unbeknownst to me. In her words “I could not find peace with God until I told the truth”.
Yesenia Patino was extradited from Mexico to testify at my 2001 trial, all the while vehemently and repeatedly denouncing the state’s prosecution and investigators for their false promises, chicanery, coercion and subterfuge.
It was reported that days before Ms. Patino’s trial testimony, a clandestine meeting was conducted between Ms. Patino and state officers of the court. Consequently, when she testified on direct examination by the prosecution, she reverted back to her rehearsed 1992 testimony, involving me in this crime. It’s quite clear her testimony was suborned.
However, under cross-examination by the defense, Yesenia Patino explained in vivid detail how she committed this crime, and her motive for doing so. She even begged the trial judge to allow her to stop with her exhaustive testimony. Ms. Patino, physically and emotionally drained from this confession, had to be helped from the witness stand by a prison guard and a female attorney from the Attorney General’s office.
The jury, backed into a Thanksgiving day vacation deadline to end this trial, rendered a guilty verdict. This verdict shocked my defense attorneys, as well as many legal pundits who followed this trial. When jurors were asked after the trial why they returned a guilty verdict, some stated that they were confused on some jury instructions and, in particular, “accomplice liability” and “reasonable doubt”. It was blatantly obvious that there was an abundance of reasonable doubt. Further investigation, and in judge’s chambers, discussion with some jury members revealed a clear presence of some jury misconduct and coercion.
The state, seeing their case before the trial start to unravel, elected to drop the death penalty. I was found guilty and sentenced to 25 to life sentences.
I have enclosed a sampling of some of the abundance of material that reinforce my innocence. I have available a plethora of documents, personal interviews, reports, letters etc., many in Yesenia Patino’s own taped words and writings, that give support to my innocence. The video deposition is particularly revealing and poignant.
As you can see from these enclosures, Rubin “Hurricane” Carter personally endorsed his belief in my innocence. In addition, Mr. Carter’s renowned organization, AIDWYC (Association in Defense of the Wrongly Convicted) unanimously chose to support my case. The Board members at AIDWYC are some of the most prestigeous legal minds in Canada and America.
This case was never a “slam dunk”. There are copious amounts of evidence to demonstrate my innocence. “Smoke and mirrors”, perjury, subornation of perjury, withholding exculpatory evidence and gross deception has made a mockery of my case and trials.
I thank you for enduring this verbose, yet vitally informative synopsis. I felt it necessary to give you enough facts with which to evaluate your decision of whether to help cure the injustices I have endured, and be a remedy in granting an innocent man his freedom.
If you wish, I can make available to you the names of investigators, attorneys and professional people who could give you further insight. I need “visibility” and legal assistance especially in the Habeas Appeal Process. Should anyone wish to contribute any legal expertise, investigative research, or funding to procure competent counsel and investigators, please feel free to do so. My outside contact is KC DenDooven at KCPKCDD@aol.com. For legal assistance, you may contact my attorney Michael J. Dew at email@example.com.
I look forward to your reply at your earliest convenience.
Please, also read Danny Willoughby’s “My Christmas Wish” of November 2015! This elder gentleman seems to lose hope and to feel very lonely. Although the webpage of his case has gotten most of the hits of the Innocent in Prison Project International by a wide margin for years, he needs supporters who lift his spirit.

- The murderess recanted her statements on tape before the trial and Dan’s defense attorney never played the tape at trial, which could have exonerated Dan.
- Before Dan’s sentencing the trial judge upon hearing this simply said to bring this up on appeal.
- The alleged murder weapon was not the knife in the head, but was purported by the murderess to be “mace on a chain.” This was used to bludgeon Dan’s wife to death, and supposedly by Dan, even though he was at the museum with his children when the murder took place. This alleged murder weapon was never found, and never seen by anyone other than the murderess. This “mace” theory was inconsistent with the medical examiner’s report, but again Dan’s defense attorney did a poor job in cross-examining the medical examiner and in showing what a fabricated story was being produced by the prosecutor.
- There were so many things that the prosecutor and investigators did in Dan’s case that were malicious, and the prosecutorial misconduct was prevalent throughout the investigation and trial. One such example involved the exhumation of Dan’s wife’s body by the investigators, four months after she was buried. What they found, to their surprise and dismay, was a letter that Dan had put in his wife’s coffin just minutes before the funeral directors closed the coffin lid at the funeral parlor. The letter was still in Dan’s wife’s hands, where he had placed it at the time the coffin lid was to be closed. No one knew that Dan had written this letter. Dan had told no one and showed this letter to no one. It was a love letter expressing Dan’s deep love for his wife, and how that same love would be used to raise their children with loving memory of their mother. This certainly was not self-serving, and was exculpatory in every sense of the word.
- After the body had been exhumed, Dan then – for the first time- told the attorney about the letter. Dan’s attorney decided to wait a few weeks and see if the prosecutor or investigators for the Attorney General’s Office brought the letter to Dan’s attorney’s attention. They did not. Dan’s attorney then contacted the prosecutor about the letter, and the prosecutor claimed no knowledge of any letter. However, a few days later the prosecutor called Dan’s attorney and acknowledged that he had a conversation with the lead investigator, and he admitted that he had found this love letter, but said it meant nothing, and put it back in the coffin.
- However, Dan’s investigator talked to the funeral director, who was present at the time the coffin was opened, and said that this lead investigator for the Attorney General’s Office had said that “this won’t do us any good” when he discovered the letter and read it. He obviously was playing with Brady material which was exculpatory, and which he did not want exposed. The letter was finally retrieved after a 2nd (second) exhumatation but because the letter was not put back into the envelope, and negligently thrown into the coffin, water seepage rendered this extremely exculpatory letter almost useless, and illegible. The state’s chief investigator did this on purpose so this love letter would disintegrate beyond use!
- Also, the investigator had a court order to take the coffin to the medical examiner’s office. Instead, he brought the coffin to a Mormon funeral home to open it prior to bringing it to the medical examiner. Naturally, this was in violation of the court’s order, and the investigator acted on his own. It was apparent that he wished to look at the body before the medical examiner did. Dan later found out from his investigator the reason for this: at one time this lead investigator for the Attorney General had gone into the medical examiner’s office, and had tampered with evidence in another felony case, and had been caught doing so. The Medical Examiner “blackballed” this lead investigator, and had him on a “restriction list” so he would not be allowed into the medical examiner’s facilities anymore.
The book titled “Damaged Goods” – be advised that this author, Jim Henderson, is being sued. This “pulp fiction” booklet was paid for by friends of the prosecution with the sole intent of giving a one-sided “story” – not facts – about my case.
In fact, Mr. Henderson only took information supplied by the prosecutor’s office, and victim’s family – my in-laws. Not one defense attorney, defense witness, defense investigator, not the convicted murderer Yesenia Patino, and not even I was consulted for unbiased information to give the entire picture, and not some fictional salacious account that never happened.
This book was so inaccurate, that the prosecution never called any of the principle people mentioned in the book, to the witness stand except Thera Huish. Huish handed out copies of this booklet to jurors which naturally was illegal, and created bias. When only one side of a story, or case is written about, it is a false presentation of facts not in evidence, and only theories and suppositions. See enclosed a letter or affidavit from Brenda Pomeroy demonstrating the jury misconduct done by Thera Huish passing out this felonious account to prejudice the jury. And the jury was indeed prejudiced by reading this “pulp fiction”.
There is a book titled “Rocky Point”, a true story of murder by Mark Siegel. Mark was an attorney and author, and a very honest man. He wrote a true account of this case, and even drove to Mexico to view the crime scene and talk to the police and others who investigated this crime. He sought out both sides of the story from the Defense and Prosecution sides. Mark passed away from a heart attack, but his book should still be around some place. I suggest, if you want an honest and unbiased account of this crime, read Siegel’s book. Siegel talked to Jim Henderson about his book of Damaged Goods, and Henderson said it was 90% fiction and only from the prosecutorial approach.

He died in prison
He died in prison in 2018.
I guess for Willoughby it’s for not since he died on November 20th 2018. One thing is for sure and Willoughby was not innocent. He got what he deserved. May he rest in hell.
Is this site a joke?
Like the letter on her coffin after the fact is overlooked evidence and a miscarrisge of justice?
Good Lord. I hope he’s melting in hell. Same to those who run this site.
Wow, this story isn’t even close to the one told by the evidence! Read the appeals court case!
Dan Willoughby is a malignant narcissist and took the life of an idealistic and giving wife and mother. It’s shocking to read how comfortably he slips away from responsibility for his crime to blame his one-time mistress.
Condolences to your wife and family…whilst you laid out the facts of the case, I have yet to hear you say you are innocent …I truly believe you are guilty directly and indirectly so either way I believe you got the justice you deserve…I am sorry for your children who lost two parent because of the actions of one
Bottom line – but for the fact that he was cheating on his wife with Ysenia – none of this would have happened. You wanna play – you gotta pay.
I read this and I was going to reply to the defendant Dan Willoughby in his defense. Then I kept reading. Counselor Ochoa in fact was NOT ineffective. Ochoa gave his client EXACTLY what he needed. He got his client off death row, didn’t he? As for the testimony of Yesinia: his testimony was supposed to make sure that if the state was going to make him responsible for Trish, Dan would also be responsible. Dan will be eligible for parole after 50 years. Yesinia, he will be out soon. He only got 35 years. Both men got the sentence the law said they should get. The first sentence for Dan was correct. The upper court erred in its ruling granting Dan a second trial. Dan had effective assistance of counsel. His lawyer knew EXACTLY what he was doing. He had a titanic of a case. Grasp at straws was his only defense for Dan.
I highly doubt he was set up by the system, the evidence sure seems like it was a co-conspiracy. All for that nasty beast… Hope a third plus of his life in a cage was worth murder and multiple lives ruined.
Dan is a homosexual, a wife killer.
He ruined the lives of his children, his wife’s relatives and all her friends. He will have hell to pay!
I have know Dan for a long time, I feel he is a good man and that I believe he is innocent. Dan would give you the shirt off his back anytime anyplace.
Okay – who is this and how much are you being paid to say this stuff….lol
I worked with Dan for a number of years. I found him to be very deceptive in his business practices. I have no doubt that his story in untruthful no matter what he says or claims.
When I heard of the murder, the thought never crossed my mind that he was innocent.
Mr.Willoughby deserves nothing but the utmost consideration and respect as shown to him by his fellow inmates for his kindness and generosity in helping with their voluminous legal paperwork, which he has been doing for many years, for free. My dad is one of the recipients of Mr. Willoughbys Free legal expertise. We hope that he is granted parole.
O M GOSH…are you serious right now?
Mr. Willoughby deserves the utmost consideration and respect as shown to him by his fellow inmates for his kindness and generosity in helping with their extensive legal paperwork for Free for many years. My father is one of the recipients of Mr. Willoughbys expertise and we are very greatful for all of his support . Please show mercy and grant parole to this kind and caring man.
I knew Dan for a number of years before this all happened. I played softball and basketball with him and was in his home every month. He loved his children. He was a nice and friendly person and I can’t imagine that he could have killed his wife. Yes he made a huge mistake getting together with Yesenia and that was a terrible thing to do to his wonderful wife, who I also knew very well. However, I think Yesenia is the only one that could have brutally murdered Trish like that. If Dan had done it he would have had blood on his clothes as he went to the museum with his kids.
I just saw the ID program on this and hear the oldest? daughter say Danny went back into the condo for a few minutes? just b4 they left for their little tour and when he came out he had changed clothes
I’m married to his oldest daughter. It’s very depressing reading these comments, as they have no idea what they’re talking about. He was guilty, plain and simple. He’s no longer alive, so I guess it doesn’t matter anymore! He just died, thank goodness.
That’s the unvarnished truth. I’m glad Trish’s eldest child has found a good man to love and protect her.
Thus far, I’ve been unable to find Dan’s death noted on the internet, but perhaps the prison system takes its time in putting up such notices.
Let’s see how well Dan can manipulate God.
Go to the AZ DOC He expired in 2018
I have Danny Willoughby for about 65 years. I met him in high school and then we were at Sacramento State College at the same time. Danny was no choir boy because he had a great imagination and was very spirited. A good example was on the last day of high school he put a fish in his locker and it took a few days to find the smell. I can’t see this leading to being involved in a murder. In the terrible murder it appears that Danny was guilty of one thing- he had been stupid by having an affair with a woman that was really unbalanced. Having any affair is stupid but this turned out to be deadly. Sad to say that affairs happen all too often in our society and many times the consequences are devastating. There are only two people who KNOW who committed this crime-Yesenia and Danny. She has said that she ( along with her brother ) did it but then she has recanted her story. Danny has consistently said he had part or knowledge of Trish’s death. I am so sorry for Trish’s death and the resulting emotional roller coaster that it has caused the children. It is my opinion that Danny should be released from prison. I am also sorry that this letter is going to cause Trish’s family to relive this experience.
You had said that there are only 2 people who know who committed the crime – you forgot about GOD….He saw everything and He knows the truth. No hiding from Him.
I came across this case yesterday.
In his letter to the public Dan has not one single word for his murdered wife. It’s just ‘blablabla-I’ mit innocent-Please help me-blablabla.
He claimes he is innocent. Dan put his beautiful wife through hell of humiliation, moving his mistress just down the street and having an affair with her for years, constantly lying to his wife…making a fool of her and their children.
What a backboneless pig!
No matter how you turn it – he is responsible for his wifes murder…
For heavens sake – if you had cared for your wife in just the slightest manner, you wouldn’t have had her suffering like that! What a way to kill someone – disgusting!
And having your children find their dying mother with a butter knife sticking in her head?? For this cruelty you deserve 10 aditional years!
Why were you allowed to attend your victims funeral? How sick!
Dan, NOone with a propper brain will ever believe that you are innocent.
Your are guilty, you are extremly dumm and you have no heart. You will die in prison. I promise you this!
And for what?? Your mistress…my goodness, she’s dumm as a brick, annoyngly-boring as she speaks and not pretty to look at… How low can you go as a man??
Well Dan, you cook the soup – you eat the soup!
And man! – you are some lousy cook!
My heart hurts for Trish’s family!
I wish them well and peace in their hearts.
Greetings from Germany
I’m so sorry for what your wife and family have had to endure because of Dan. As Trish’s cousin I injure she was a hard working honest woman who never deserved the disgusting man she married and the total destruction he brought on the whole family. I hope for your healing.
Dan murdered my cousin. I was at het funeral where he showed NO EMOTION!! LOVE LETTER!?! A pure disgusting ploy. He never shed a tear while they closed her casket and her beloved mother wailed over her mutilated body.
Dan was incompetent. Couldn’t make legitimate money and Trish was so successful and his small ego couldn’t handle it. He lied and cheated on her, and when she found out and confronted him he was a total coward!!
He wanted her money and thought he deserved it at any cost. It serves him right that he didn’t even know his mistress was a MAN!
Don’t be fooled!! I’ve lived it and his stories are just that. More lies.
He let his children find their mother with a table knife in her head dying!! He destroyed his family and his children out of greed and selfishness. He deserves to rot in jail and I look forward to seeing him go to the special place in hell that is being prepared just for him.
Whoever was in charge of this deposition was an amateur at best and an idiot at worst!! The sound level is terrible and then they had a phone that kept ringing during the testimony!! Very annoying!! Plus, several other things happened like someone dropped something that distracted the murderer on a couple of occasions and that was ridiculous. It doesn’t matter, we know she was the murderer who killed her lovers wife. I hope they both rot in prison forever!!
Martin, please go back to the video (00:01:20 – 00:01:31) and you will hear, who was present at the time of the recording. You might be surprised. I am sorry for the poor quality, but this video is all we have gotten.
So the transgender was nearby, in hiding, as Dan and the kids leave. I don’t doubt his/her presence, participation and details. They likely both did it. The locked door, changed clothing, untucked shirt, and poor Marsha being talked out of staying? I’m convinced beyond a reasonable doubt; and that’s the problem with all these cases (OJ foremost of all): i wasn’t there. So i don’t “know”. Maybe there’s doubt … but it is not “reasonable doubt”.
you are a pathetic excuse for a human. You destroyed your children’s lives and one Of them is gone forever now. The fact that you even have internet access disgusts me. Rot in prison Danny.
RIP to one of your innocent children you purposely let see their mother brutally murdered. Another casualtie to your greedy pathetic ass.
I couldn’t agree more!!
He is guilty. I’m married to one of his daughters, so I know this case intimately. This whole idea of him “possibly” being innocent is a joke! For every fool that thinks he is innocent (Rubin Carter), I can provide many more that KNOW he’s guilty. My only hope is that he rots and then dies in prison for what he’s done, including the long ranging damage he’s done to his children and the family of his victim, Trish.
I’m so sorry for what your wife and family have had to endure because of Dan. As Trish’s cousin I injure she was a hard working honest woman who never deserved the disgusting man she married and the total destruction he brought on the whole family. I hope for your healing.
Thank you for your comment. It helps to clear things up for me. I never believed he was innocent – and let’s face it – but for his affair – none of this would have happened. My condolences to your wife.
