Crimestoppers Murder Mystery - Steven Hedgers

Stay up-to-date with KAKE News:

Steven Hedgers was 27 when he disappeared from a house on Star Street in July, 1986. His wife and infant son were enjoying a vacation in Washington at the time. Hedgers stayed home because the family couldn't afford for him to miss work.

Police say he was last seen at a friend's house on July 25 where he had dinner. After four days of trying to phone him from Washington, Hedger's wife called police on the 29th.

Police found nothing missing from his home, except his wallet, prescription sunglasses and maybe his social security card. They believe those clues mean Hedgers left his house with someone he knew. His keys were left inside and his truck was left in the driveway. There were no signs of a struggle inside.

Detectives wonder why Hedgers' boss didn't call police after four days of not showing up for work.

Police believe Hedgers was murdered. The problem, though, is that his body was never found.

This wasn't the only tragedy that the Hedgers family was dealing with at the time. Shortly before he disappeared, Hedgers first son died of a medical complication. At the time of his disappearance, he worked as a trucker for the now-defunct Alpine Petroleum and El Dorado Crude.
