This is one of the saddest cases ever featured on UM. Maybe someone in prison will take care of Hicks.

Did Hicks say anything pertaining to how the crime actually happened? His reasons? Just curious. It sounds like it was an unfortunate coincidence that he and the woman were in the complex and he saw Christopher alone, then maybe the woman said that Christopher had a pretty mom so he used Christopher to get to her (And had the gun). Sounds like a wrong place, wrong time kind of deal. I have to wonder if the woman didn't live in the complex if she or Hicks knew someone who did. Otherwise, why would they be there?

I agree, the killer is nothing but garbage. Since he is a child killer, let's hope that his fellow prisoners are not treating him well.

I had seen these previously. Didn't realize they wernt on lifetime? But I'm glad that piece of garbage hicks was identified after all those years. Given this was so close to home I always wondered about this gruesome crime and how he could have got away with it.

Yeah he was arrested for another sex assault and the first instinct of the officer was finding a rape in progress. They may have gotten distracted by the drug connection because of the prior visitor for her brother but to me it seems unlikely that after a guy leaves for the service that his prior acquainted would murder them like that to get even because it would have done nothing beneficial for them. The brother also said that he did not know anything about the murders. I think it is more likely that sexual assault was the main motive and perhaps it could of been someone that knew her brother because of drugs or it could have been a stranger.

Yeah, I've wondered if that piece of crap Hicks killed them solely for his own enjoyment or if he did it because he was connected to Kurt Jeeves' drug dealing in some way. I still don't think there has been a clear answer to that.

That is what I have always wanted to know.

you are correct not a clear answer. there are not many details on this case other than it was solved through DNA and it appears he has a life sentence now. At one point I read somewhere they he could be paroled, but that either changed or was wrong.(thank god)

I think the police rightfully focused on the drug angle because drug violence is inevitable. but I think this was a crime of opportunity. Hicks was repeat violent crime/sex offender. He most certainly did drugs and that could be how he knew of Roxanne through her brother or the other lady in the complex. Or he could have not known of her at all until that day.

According to Texas dept of corrections he is serving a life sentence but is eligible for porole in 2028. And given his repeat violent crimes I doubt he would be paroled. That would put him at nearly 80.

It would be nice to know just for the sake of clarification.

I wonder if authorities have ever gotten Hicks to speak (on or off-the-record) about it.

I'm there with you. And That's another good question. There are articles online about this case before and after it was solved. They are posted on the wiki page. One of the pages has some personal comments made about the case from friends and another victim of his. It sheds light to me personally that it was drugs and sexual assault. It doesn't have any info more about the guy nor are there many comments from the lead investigator who was retired when the case was solved. I wonder what his take was and if he made attempts to speak to the guy?

After searching... One article states he refused to speak about it. So maybe that's it. He was already serving hard time for multiple sexual assaults that he committed after the murders. Yet in spite of this he has had parole on the horizon at one point.

This is probably my worst case ever shown on UM or right there. especially since it was close to where I lived.

Do you remember seeing a news story about this case when it first happened or did you learn about it for the first time from watching UM?

Apparently this case was featured on ID's On The Case with Paula Zahn: Field Of Nightmares:

https://mylifeofcrime.wordpress.com/...jeeves-murder/


I found a lengthy, detailed 1991 article about the case: http://stephenmichaud.com/murderers.htm

Sort of OT: I found this page about Roxann's brother: http://peacetime-casualties.mooseroo...-Robert-Jeeves

Definitely saw it first on UM. I never saw it on the Dallas news. I was born in 83. So to be fair it was before my time, but I do not ever recall this case being revised by the Dallas media like some of the other famous cases.

I read a couple of those articles. And I have not seen the Paula zahn episode I cannot find it online but will keep looking. There's another thread on here with some of our posters talking about that episode when it first premiered.

oh wow. It seems like quite a few of us here are around the same age.


thanks, I was able to find that episode online but when I tried to watch it said it was not viewable in my country. I will keep looking. Paula Zahn's show circulates here so I can set them to record. based on some of the reviews of field of nightmares not sure I want to watch it though.....

That car wash guy is really annoying-he thought something was wrong & said if anything happened to them he wouldn't be surprised etc, yet didn't call the cops & give a description of the vehicle & occupants. Still confused exactly how he got into their car, why was she with this guy & other woman? Where did the other woman go to? Was she herself mixed up in drugs like her brother? Was she paying off her brothers debts in some way? It doesn't sound like he & his companion just ended up there by accident & immediately pulled a gun on her.
