On June 9, 1995, Morgan Nick went to a Little League baseball game with her mother in Alma, Arkansas. At night, she went with her friends to catch lightning bugs near the baseball pitch.
Morgan was last seen in the parking lot near her mother’s Nissan Stanza at about 10:45 p.m. At the time, she was taking sand out of her shoes. No one has ever heard from her again.
Witnesses told the police that earlier in the night, they saw an unidentified white man watching Morgan play on the pitch. The man walked up to a group of kids who were playing with Morgan and asked them a question, but investigators haven’t shared any more information about what was said.
In 1995, the suspect was about 6 feet tall and weighed 180 pounds. He or she was between 23 and 38 years old. The suspect had black or salt-and-pepper hair that was combed to the back and might have been curly. He also had a moustache and a beard that was about three to four days old. His chest was also hairy. He wore blue jean shorts that were cut off and didn’t have a shirt or shoes on. He also spoke with a “hillbilly” accent. With this case summary, sketches of the person who is thought to have taken Morgan are posted.
The unidentified man may have been driving a red Ford pickup truck with a white camper shell and curtains over the windows. About the same time Morgan went missing, the car left the field’s parking lot. The truck was old, so the paint was dull, and the wheel base was short. The right back end of the camper might have been broken. Witnesses said that the camper seemed to be four to five inches shorter than the truck.
After a while, the police found out that someone who was recording the Little League games that night on a home video had caught the truck. With this case summary is a still picture of the truck. But it is not possible to see who is driving the truck.
On June 9 and 10, there were two attempts to take people away. In Alma, a suspect who looked like the person who took Morgan was able to get a 4-year-old girl into his red truck. When the girl’s mother saw them and screamed, they were stopped from taking her. A suspect tried to get a nine-year-old girl into the men’s bathroom at a convenience store in Fort Smith, which is 15 miles from Alma. When the girl pushed back, he stopped. The police said that the same man was involved in both cases.
Even though it hasn’t been proven that the person involved in these incidents is the same man being looked for in Morgan’s case, he and his truck look like the person suspected in Morgan’s disappearance, so the police think the two events are related.
In 2021, Billy Jack Lincks became the main person of interest in the case of Morgan’s disappearance. With this case summary, there is a picture of Lincks. He died in prison in 2000. He was there for trying to take a child. The attempted kidnapping happened just a few miles from where Morgan was last seen, about two months after she went missing.
Investigators are looking into Lincks’s life, friends, and activities to find out more about him. He was born in Crawford County, Arkansas. During World War II, he served in the U.S. Army. From 1962 to 1974, he worked for Braniff Airlines in Dallas, Texas. In the late 1970s, he moved to Van Buren, Arkansas. Investigators think he had ties to states like Tennessee and Oklahoma that are close to Arkansas.
The police were able to find Lincks’s pickup truck and take it from him. On a seat, they found some hair and small amounts of blood, but not enough DNA to match it to anyone. They also found a blue-green cotton fibre under the seats. They think it may have come from Morgan’s Girl Scouts shirt on the day she went missing.
Morgan has been seen a few times in the last few years, but no one has been able to find her. Nobody knows who the suspect is or what he might be driving.
