Hawkins, 19, of Dora, Ala., was found shot to death in a wooded area of Walker County, which includes Dora, Tuesday night, reports AL.com, a site for several Alabama newspapers. His mother had reported him missing Saturday night, saying Nicholas had called to tell her someone intended to kill him.
Dora Police Chief Jared Hall told Birmingham TV station WTVM there was reason to consider Reese a “person of interest” in Hawkins’s case. “Nick Hawkins did name Joshua Adam Reese in the phone call to his mom, saying he was trying to kill him,” Hall said. Reese is being held in the Walker County Jail. He has not been charged in the Hawkins case, and there have been no public statements about a motive for Hawkins’s killing.
