he was being raised by his father and step mother.. had a couple of step brothers and sisters, had a good home life.. slightly a pain in the butt sometimes but nothing major.. anything else

The Higgins boy and I can't remember the other one's name came in the Hawley boys home and shot him several times putting him in a comma then left him for dead. They admitted to murdering the Hawley boy because they had sold him a gun that hawley wanted them to take the gun back because he didn't trust where the gun came from. Hawley's girlfriend was in the bedroom and when they started shooting him she was scared and looked out and witnessed it then hid. The murderer whose name that i can't remember was from Stilwells uppercrust hired a good attorney. After a long delay it finally made it to court and the murderers attorney pulled out a plea agreement they had made with the previous crooked DA that was kicked out. The new DA couldn't fight it because the Judge ruled it was valid even though it had not been signed. So what the 2 murderers got was 5 years probation and then taken off their record after that 5 years. The Hawley boy was a hard worker and a good kid and had never been in trouble. The attorneys tried to say he was a drug dealer because he had bought a used pickup for $5,000.00 cash but what really happened was his grandmother had recently died and left him that money to him in her will. You take 1 good kid killed by 2 animals get a good attorney put it in a corrupt system and what do you get? Five years probation. I've always said if you want to get away with murder go to Adair county. From what I understand the family is at peace because those murderers will some day be judged by a perfect Judge.

Yes it was the Thomas boy and Higgens boy.
Heard they were kept in isolation at the county jail, so no one could talk to them excerpts Attorney Rex Earl Star. Jim Thomas paid that bill.

I thought that plea agreement was for the hammer boy, and I thought the reason they gave them 5 years probation is because they were charged with a series of burglaries before the murder trial and that they were going to prison anyway so they took a plea on the murder trial, but I could be wrong.

Candid I believe your right on the names. Cone I believe the Higgens and Thomas were getting into a lot of bad trouble but for some reason they were not being prosecuted. The reason Hawley changed his mind on buying the gun was when his dad found out about the gun he told him to give it back because he had heard those guys were thieves. They were never prosecuted for all of the other crimes but I do know for a fact that the 5 years was for the murder. The authorities also believed they were involved with some big drug dealer and involved in another murder but they just walked. It also made a lot of news over the state because of how egregious and unbelievable this case was. The family went all over the town talking bad about Hawley trying to get rumors started and their attorneys investigated him trying to find dirt on him but they failed because all they could find was that he was just a good hard working kid. The reason they were isolated in jail they were bragging about their crimes to prison officials and prisoners so their attorney had them isolated. I have heard that at least one of the murderers continue to break the law like beating up his girlfriend.

Another miscarriage of Justice. Wasn't it about 5-6 years ago when a young man high on meth and/or other things shot and killed his step-mother while she was sitting in a truck? If I remember correctly, the guy fled and his dad went for help. Seems like he stopped at Ross and Violet Gore's house where they got help. Caught the young man and had even began the court proceedings until his dad suffered a massive heart attack and died. Then the story changed. According to him, he was only covering for his dad because he didn't want to see him go to jail. And if I remember correctly, alot of evidence was mishandled, lost, or whatever else that could go wrong (even with the OSBI), so his attorney (Donnie Baker, I believe)was able to set him free. Always wondered whatever happened to him. does he still live in the area? Still a "reported" drug user? Seems as if everything was forgotten. Maybe some of you all know more.

I remember the Higgens and Thomas boys murdering that young man. I know that the Attorney Rex Earl Star kept everything as hush , hush as possible. Thinking that Matt Keen , D.A.'s son was buddies with those two, but cannot remember details, he was never included in the crime.

Seems like we do have alot of prosecuting problems and even solving some of the crimes- or at least used to. to this day no one know who beat Rex Thrasher in his store, injuries of which resulted in his death. i thought surely being in daylight someone would have saw something or at least heard someone brag about doing it as some often do. Stephen Hughes's murder never solved, among so many. I realize some like Hughes had drugs and other such things, but still yet who wants someone walking among us who thinks nothing of taking a life. Do it once, especially if you get away with it, and it's likely they wouldn't blink an eye in doing it again. Suppose we're like other towns, some cases just don't get solved or they just can't get enough evidence to prosecute.

the worst part is it was premeditated. Higgins knew what he was going to do and had told Hawley a couple nights before, Hawley just trusted his old friend too much to believe he would do it. Hawley loved his friends so much and was a very good person. Its sad that these boys get to move on with their lives, have families, grow old and Hawley will never get the chance to give his dad grandchildren. Its a sick sick world down in Stilwell, only money will prevail. ps...this happened 8 years ago...today. :(

the dad was Dale Wilson. the son was Aaron. The woman was Theresa Wilson, and she had also been married to Danny Hignite and was the mother of at least one of his children. I think she'd had some other husbands besides those two but don't remember who. Dale died not long after Theresa. Then Danny died. Don't know where Aaron is now.

You know, it's bad enough to have someone you know assault, or murder another human being, but have it be a longtime and/or good friend is beyond words. Though I don't condone, I can at least understand a little how the heat of the moment can result in tragic consequences, but to take their life when they are strangers, friends, and/or family over trivial matters, misunderstanding, and just cold-blooded murder to see what's like is difficult to comprehend.

It is my understanding that the boys turned themselves in. So they left Hawley dead or dying while they drove home for help from daddy. The DA really screwed this one up.

Seems like the assistant D.A.'s aren't very passionate in producing an adequate case to convict people such as Hawley's. Then the other day, the jury returned a not guilty verdict for a woman who shot her husband/ex-husband in the back and then once to the back of the head to make sure he was dead. Perhaps, the D.A. neeeds to look into more experienced prosecuters and put those in jail/prison when there is no question as to whether or not they committed the crime. I realize that there is likely alot evidence we are privy to, but I still have a difficult time understanding it.

if this man was really guilty of beating a woman, than i think he got what he deserved, shooting him in the back really isnt cool, but if that was the only way she could protect herself....well serves him right

You can go to stilwellonline.com and read what Ramona Brown reported from the trial. It mentions that he had rammed his wife's head through a window at one point and another time had tried to force one of his young daughters to kill her pet dog. She wouldn't so he killed it in front of her.

I have to say that if somebody rammed MY head through a window and it didn't cut my juglar, I'd probably shoot him at next opportunity, and I wouldn't be too concerned about where....... This killing isn't like the Hawley thing.....this was domestic abuse.....ongoing.....and he'd assaulted somebody in his workplace as well. He was probably mentally ill, but he was also very dangerous.

Those two men should never have gotten off on the Hawley murder. That was just more Adair County Justice.

Rex Thrasher was my Father He was beaten and robbed in his shoe store on Feb the 9th 1995. Till this day I have never heard a word from any law officer DA ect. What I do know is that his death was never investigated. I was told after his death that his case had been handed over to a private investigater from Tahlequah OK. Never heard from him!! I also know that the OSBI took foot prints from the blood in the store. City police officers took shoes from a suspect. And then I was told by a police officer that them prints matched. Why they were never investigated I dont know !!! There was 2 people involved in that murder and someone can talk!! It has been 16 years now. I will still pay 10,000 to anyone who can lead to there arrest. I would love to see this solved before I die. And if not I will see you on Judgement Day !!!
