Details of Disappearance
On June 9, 1995, Morgan went to a Little League Baseball game with her mother in Alma, Arkansas. Later that evening, she joined her friends to catch lightning bugs near the baseball field.
Morgan was last seen in the parking lot near her mother’s Nissan Stanza at around 10:45 p.m. At the time, she was emptying sand from her shoes. She’s never been seen or heard from again.
Witnesses reported seeing an unidentified Caucasian male watching Morgan play on the field earlier that night. The man apparently approached a group of children who were playing with Morgan and asked them a question; investigators have not released any additional information about the conversation.
In 1995, the suspect was described as being between the ages of 23 and 38, 6’0, and weighing 180 pounds. The suspect had black or salt-and-pepper hair that was combed to the back and possibly curly, a moustache, and a beard that was three to four days old. He also had a beard on his chest. He was dressed in cut-off blue jean shorts with no shirt or shoes and spoke in a “hillbilly” dialect or accent. This case summary includes sketches of Morgan’s alleged abductor.
The unidentified man was possibly driving a red Ford pickup truck with a white camper shell and curtains covering the windows. The vehicle left the field’s parking lot around the time Morgan vanished. Due to age, the truck’s paint was dull, and it had a short wheel base. The camper’s right rear end was possibly damaged. According to witnesses, the camper appeared to be four to five inches shorter than the truck.
Authorities later discovered that the truck was captured on a home video by a person who was filming the Little League baseball games that night. This case summary includes a still photo of the truck. However, the driver of the truck cannot be seen.
On June 9 and 10, two attempted abductions occurred in the surrounding area. A suspect who resembled Morgan’s abductor enticed a four-year-old girl into his red truck in Alma. When her mother saw them and screamed, the abduction was stopped and the girl was saved. A suspect tried to entice a nine-year-old girl into the men’s restroom at a convenience store in Fort Smith, about fifteen miles from Alma. When the girl resisted, he came to a halt. According to authorities, both incidents involved the same man.
While the man involved in these incidents has not been confirmed to be the same man sought in Morgan’s case, he and his truck resembled the suspect in her disappearance, and authorities believe the events are connected.
Authorities named Billy Jack Lincks as a primary person of interest in Morgan’s kidnapping in 2021. This case summary includes a photograph of Lincks. In 2000, he died in prison while serving time for attempted child abduction. The attempted child abduction happened just two months after Morgan went missing, and it was only a few miles away from where she was last seen.
Lincks’ life, associates, and activities are being researched by investigators. He was born in Crawford County, Arkansas, served in the United States Army during WWII, and worked for Braniff Airlines in Dallas from 1962 to 1974. In the late 1970s, he relocated to Van Buren, Arkansas. Investigators believe he had connections to states bordering Arkansas, such as Tennessee and Oklahoma.
Morgan has been seen in unconfirmed sightings in recent years, but she has yet to be found. The suspect and his possible vehicle are still unidentified.
