Hawkins, circa 1961
Missing Since 04/03/1961
Classification Endangered Missing
Age 48 years old
Height and Weight 5'7 - 5'9, 190 pounds
Clothing/Jewelry Description Dark blue trousers, a red and black flannel shirt under a dark blue jacket with yellow lining, a blue/gray hat, a yellow gold watch with a leather band, and a yellow gold ring with a Masonic emblem.
Details of Disappearance Hawkins was last seen on April 3, 1961 in Newport, Kentucky. He resided in Persimmon Grove, Kentucky at the time. He was employed as a law enforcement officer and also ran a small general store. He lived on the upper floor of the store.
On the day of his disappearance, Hawkins fixed his daughter's breakfast and saw her off to work, then said goodbye to his wife and left in his tan two-tone 1959 Plymouth Fury station wagon.
On April 7, authorities found Hawkins's car in Dayton, Ohio, parked at the edge of a river. It had half a tank of gasoline and the key was still in the ignition. There was muddy water inside the vehicle; it appeared as if the car had been rinsed in muddy water and then wiped with a muddy rag. There was no sign of Hawkins at the scene.
Allegedly, Hawkins kept increasing his prices and the criminals were tired of paying him, and arranged to have him murdered as a result. No one has been charged in connection with his disappearance, however; it remains unsolved.
