Richard Petrone Jr & Danielle Imbo

Couple Disappears On Way Home From Restaurant

From the FBI Website:

Richard Petrone and Danielle Imbo were last seen leaving a bar in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in the late evening hours of February 19, 2005. The two were dating. They have not been seen nor heard from since this last sighting.


February 19, 2005. Richard Petrone Jr. of South Philadelphia, and his girlfriend, Danielle (Ottobre) Imbo of Mount Laurel, N.J., were last seen at around 11:45 pm on Saturday, Feb. 19, 2005 leaving Abilene's bar at 429 South Street in Philadelphia, where they met with some friends. They were heading for Richard's 2001 black Dodge Dakota pickup truck, PA license plate # YFH-2319 parked in the neighborhood.

Danielle, Richard, or the truck haven't been seen since and there have been no traces or clues as to their whereabouts.

The couple planned to spend the night at Danielle's house in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. The next day, Richard was to come back to his apartment on Snyder Avenue near 16th Street to watch the Daytona 500. No one knows if the couple ever made it to Danielle's house Saturday night.

Richard was 35 years old, 5 feet 9 inches tall, 200 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes. He had an "Angela" tattoo on his left arm and clowns on his right arm. Richard was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, jeans, and sneakers. Danielle was 5 feet 5 inches tall, 117 pounds, with hazel eyes, fair skin and brown hair. She had a tattoo of flowers on her lower back. She was wearing a black jacket, cream-colored sweater and blue jeans.

At the outset, I run a test chart for 11:45 pm, when they are leaving the restaurant. I treat the first chart as if it's for one person: Richard Petrone. The chart has Scorpio rising and Taurus falling with Mars right at the Descendant, conjoined the Node. This says he is with someone special, a "soul mate" of sorts, immediately creating a pair with Danielle Imbo. Mars is disposed of by Venus in the fifth house, showing they are at a bar or restaurant, having fun with friends. The fifth house says they were drinking, eating, dancing, socializing. Venus and Mars are in mutual reception, finishing out the chart with aspects showing they were together, as a couple, and they were happy, having a good time. They enjoyed each other immensely. Venus, in the fifth house, is inconjunct Jupiter in the tenth. They tended to "overdo it" at times, indulging themselves and just doing stuff for the joy of it. This night was no different. They may have too much of something: to eat, to drink, etc.. And because Jupiter is weak in Virgo, they may have been obviously overconfident in some way; breaking the rules of social etiquette, perhaps drunk or just having "too much" fun. Pluto, the chart co-ruler, is in the second house in Sagittarius, disposed of by the same Jupiter, so they only left because they had spent all their money. They way overdid it, but perhaps this was a norm for them, and spent every dime having a good time. So they were off and on the way home because their pockets were empty. Now, I don't want to hear the argument that maybe they had tons of money in the bank or whatnot, they spent what they intended to, planned to, or merely could.

The charts I do for midnight and 12:30 am don't show much change. Scorpio is still rising and Taurus is falling. The only real change is that Venus has moved into the third, showing that they are still in the car. I don't know how far they had to drive but within the next 15 minutes, at least, they are still en route. This is a big shift for Venus because the ecliptic has arced and caused the fifth house to shrink below 30 degrees, displacing planets. The third house, by the way, has moved with the ecliptic arc and has spread out to accommodate the lost degrees. This causes Venus to roll over two houses in less than an hour. But it's the chart for 1 am that really starts to talk. Scorpio is still rising and Taurus is falling but angular rulers have clustered in the third house, Saturn and the Moon have crept into the eighth house and Pluto has moved into the first. Somewhere along the way, a few new people got in the car. Mercury rules the midheaven and it's in fall in Pisces in it's own place, the third house. This is strange combination but it says that they were stopped on a major highway somewhere, flagged down, perhaps, or run off the road. This is out in the open, on a major highway and not on some quiet back road. This was sudden and unexpected. And the result is, they have other people who have gotten into their car.

In this chart, I don't like the Moon hugging Saturn in the eighth. Not a good omen. The Moon is also exactly square Jupiter in the eleventh house. Something really bad is going to happen and it's going to be people that the victims have considered "friends" who do it. The fact that Neptune is closely trine to Jupiter tells me that this was unexpected, sneaky, a real "backstabbing". Richard and Danielle trusted these folk and thought they were friends; but tonight, things were different. And I believe, from the chart I draw up at 2 am, that is it between 1:30 and 2:30 am that a violent event occurs and these two people lose their lives. At 2 am, Mars has joined Pluto in the first house and is in opposition to both the Moon and Saturn still in the eighth house. Pluto is inconjunct Saturn and sextile to Venus in the second house. This wasn't personal, it was business. This murder was all about money. I do not know these two people and their business relationships, either separately or together, but these were friends that had some sort of arrangement that involved money with one or both of them. But I don't find that unusual; we often make the mistakes of borrowing money from friends, loaning money to friends, going into business with friends and making friends of business partners. I am not sure which way this went. But the eleventh house shows friends, the tenth house shows business, the second house screams money and the eighth house, shared resources. More people have been murdered over eighth house affairs than any other: inheritances, insurance, shared bank accounts, investments, property, etc...

But the Moon and Saturn opposing Mars in the first describes a firearm. Mars in Capricorn makes me think of a hunting rifle or shotgun. Mars is in his dignity so it is a strong influence on this chart. It is opposed of by Saturn, the death planet, in the eighth house of death. Saturn is close to the Moon in Cancer. These people were killed this night and most probably by a gun. And most probably by a shotgun, hunting rifle or other gun used to killed game. Planets in Pisces dominate the third house and planets in Cancer dominate the eighth house, so I'd be looking for both the car and these victims to be in a body of water. Taking into consideration that Jupiter in Libra in the tenth house is square to the Moon in Cancer in the eighth house, I would venture the guess that they were dropped into a mountain lake. Some body of water high off the ground is the place they will be found. They are still with the car and dredging mountain lakes for the vehicle will turn up their remains.

Who were their killers? Well, first of all this was a group of 3 or more people, who were friends of theirs. There was a business connection involving money. Mercury in Pisces emphasizes the money connection; someone was a bookworm type, an accountant, a bean counter. Mercury is in fall in Pisces, so it is not beyond this person to blame someone else for his or her mistakes. This person may have been responsible for money and/or transactions and either hid something or found something that was hidden. Neptune can be intentionally deceptive or accidentally sloppy. Either way, these victims did something with money or were blamed for something someone else did. I don't know if this makes sense; I know nothing about these people. But this does not have to be embezzlement or theft. They could have made bad bets or lousy investments. Or even loaned money to or from the wrong people. Only those close to them would know what this might be. But there is no doubt they were killed over money. How that happened, I am not sure.

Discuss This Case At My Forum

Because there are more than one person involved in this case, I cannot give my usual "description" of the killer. However, I can say that this was 3 or more people involved in money and business transactions. It could be illegal money, I am not sure, because Pisces and Mercury are both implicated in theft and "underground" activity. Much goes on behind the scenes where Neptune or Pisces is involved. Mercury in Pisces describes the instigator and this describes a bookworm type, as I said before, but not necessarily clever or organized. This position tends to oversight and sloppiness, mistakes are not uncommon. This person would love study and application but would also tend to be easily confused and poor at tracking details. A good memory is implied and a tendency towards revenge. Mercury disposed of by Neptune in the second, conjoined to Venus, indicates a person who is fascinated by money and possessions, romanticizing the value of things. The Beatles once sang, "Money can't buy me love" but this person is still convinced that it does.

I know a lot of people are trying to find Richard and Danielle. From the chart, I can say that they are in a high place. Jupiter in the tenth house in Libra points to a high place in the local area. It is a place that is visible to a large portion of the local area. This place has high trees and overhanging moss, birds nests on tall trees and poles, nearby radio or cell phone towers and a pond or lake. It may be a fly over for a local airport or heliport. People may hang-glide off the mountains and over the lakes. There is likely a rock quarry in the area and large animals. I know from my own experience that rock quarries bring to mind Bears but the sign Jupiter points more strongly at Horses, Donkeys and Rabbits. Now, I can't imagine a Horse or Rabbit farm that far up on a mountain, but the quarry brings to mind Donkeys. There may be a small, older farm in the area that houses Donkeys or, at least, one Donkey. If there is an area nearby, either in Philly or Jersey, that comes close to this description, then this is where searchers should start. I have spent a lot of time in this part of the country when I was younger and I realize that many places sound similar to this but remember to restrict these areas to those areas they would have travelled on this night: from Philadelphia to Mount Laurel and no where else. I do not think they drove way out of the way; in fact, they did not drive far at all. This happened on their usual way.

Regardless of my findings, both Richard Petrone and Danielle Imbo are considered missing persons and nothing has been found to indicate they are dead. Because of this, please consider their photos, and the photo of their vehicle, and commit it to memory. If you see them, or believe you have seen them, call the Philadelphia PD at: Philadelphia Police Department, One Franklin Square, Philadelphia, PA 19106
or call them at: 215.686.1776 or 215.686.3053. The Homicide Unit can be contacted at any of these numbers: 215.686-3334; 215.686-3335; 215.686-3336.
