How many of you remember the pregnant girl that worked at nickel stop that was murdered by Charles Hawkins? I think they found her in the creek out at rivals. What did he ever get for that it was a very hush hush thing I think he may have been on work release when it happened.

A co-worker told me this story not to long ago, she was friends with the woman. It was such a horrible story! I'm not sure what happened to that guy but whatever time he got wasn't enough. And the other couple of guys that participated in the crime got away completely free because the one guy took the charge. It broke my heart, I'm sure all of those guys are probably roaming our streets!

I went to school with Charles I think he took 25 years plea deal. I do remember it being a double homicide because of the pregnancy and am fairly certain it was swept under the rug and kept quiet because he was on work release from the jail. Never heard anything about anyone else being involved.

gee lets see..maybe 10 years?? or more long time it just amazes me that so few people know about it. It was barely in the papers at all. From what I remember someone fishing at rivals creek seen her body floating downstream. She was pregnant raped murdered and thrown in the water. As I said I think the reason for the hush hush about the whole thing was because he was a work release inmate. If I remember correctly there was some confusion over if it was Charles or maybe his brother or cousin someone related to him I think one tried to plead guilty for the other or some crazy stuff.

The shoe store murder is actually a different one, not the one that we are talking about.
Well

We know the shoe store murder isn't the same one we are talking about. That's why someone said they remember the girl who was murdered at the shoe store near goodys/roses AFTER they had been clearly talking about the nickel stop employee who was a victim of murder.

We know what's going on here, but then again you might have helped someone who wasnt paying attention or keeping up with the convo so your post is still relevant and useable. I'm not trying to bash you just letting you know that those of us participating know they are separate cases.
Well

That's also why I stated that there's a thread on here about her (Vanessa). I thought that was pretty clear but maybe it didn't come across right.

Vanessa was girl at the shoe store correct? I was a kid when that happened. I remember people in the streets saying the dude who did it was actually incarcerated for some other stuff while they were investigating all those years.

Okay thanks, just wanted to make sure...I saw where some one else posted that it was 20 years ago or so and that makes a lot more sense because I am pretty sure that girl was my cousin. I was too little to remember anything but I do remember my Mother and her family talking about it years ago.... it is very sad that no one remembers. No one that I have ever brought it up to remembers it at all.
