Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Breaux, a salesman at the Earl Williams men's clothing store in downtown Houma, vanished August 28, 1991, following an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting at the Easy Does It club on Bernard Street, near the Southern Oaks Country Club. Breaux had been sober for eight years at the time. Breaux, a longtime member of the club who frequently sponsored other alcoholics battling to stay sober, reportedly helped clean up after the meeting and was one of the last members to leave. About 10 p.m., Breaux went to a Time Saver convenience store that once stood at the corner of Barrow Street and La. 311 and bought a gallon of milk.
His 1988 Ford Tempo was found parked at Jim Bowie Park. The car was locked, and Breaux's wallet was found underneath the driver's seat. Two checkbooks — one for Breaux's personal account and another for the AA group — and a brown bank bag with $165 worth of AA-group money were found inside the trunk.
Breaux held down the same job for more than three decades and was heavily involved in the community and committed to his family. Breaux's body has never been recovered, and no one has ever been arrested in connection with his disappearance. Breaux was legally declared dead in 1998.
