Man Just Confessed To Cold Case Murder From 1993 — During Local TV Interview

Forty-four-year-old Brian Keith Hawkins turned himself into California police on Tuesday over an unsolved cold case murder—from 1993.

Immediately prior to giving himself up to authorities, however, Hawkins was confessing to the crime for the first time at Sinclair Broadcasting’s KRCR in Redding, California.

The television station is directly adjacent to the police station. Hawkins phoned ahead so producers and journalists could be ready for his interview. When he arrived, he asked for a soda and a cigarette.

Without going into any details about the murder itself, Hawkins explained why he came to confess.

He said, “God and Christ and these things that have happened over the course of 25 years have pushed me and pushed me to do the right thing. I know the wrong can’t be changed but this is the closest I can come to doing the right thing.” Visibly shaken throughout, Hawkins continued:

Driskill found guilty of 2005 cold-case murder | Local News …

A murder case that remained unsolved for better than a decade concluded in Parker County district court Thursday when a 55-year-old Weatherford man was found guilty of murdering a Fort Worth woman whose body was found in a creek in Aledo wrapped up in trash bags in 2005.

Larry Wayne Driskill entered a no contest plea to the cold case murder of 29-year-old Bobbie Sue Hill and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Ms. Hill’s five children were present for the sentencing and were in support of the plea agreement as a way to make sure that Driskill was finally held accountable for their mother’s death.
