Yes this is true, Littletons buried him later. When he was found all he had on him in his pocket was a slip of paper with a Cincy, OH address on it. Police investigated the address in Cincy and it was a vacant lot they ask a neighbor next to lot if he knew anything, he didn't, the neighbor next to empty lots name was Eugene thats how the black man got his name, cops named him that. Theres more info on the Frosty restaurant wall in Sabina.Eugene is buried in Sabina and he's been a popular topic of some of those cable ghost and mystery shows. Missyoujoeyramone@yahoo.com

I remember this like it was yesterday. We'd take him for rides , sled ride on him I'm the winter , prop him up to save our place in line while we sat and rested , use him to buy us beer ... I could go on for days. I think I still might have the pictures from prom when he and I double dated.

Man I miss that guy ... Good Times

I thought they had found him on the railroad tracks in town. But the cement building beside littletons was where he was kept for years, and they left him on display for years to be identified. Of course he never was. I'm pretty sure someone told me he was stolen at one point by the Wilmington College kids, or maybe a different college. Eventually he was buried and never has been identified. Talk to some of the old timers of Sabina, or even the library. I'm sure the story is still there.

I went to see Eugene in the 1950s at a little house they made for him in back of the funeral home. How do you know he was a drunk if he was found. You bast$%^d.

Nobody knew if "Eugene" was a drinker. Nobody knew anything about him. He walked through town one day and was found dead outside of town the next. I saw him a couple of times when I was a child and touched his hand once.
