  • Details of Disappearance
    Goodwin was a patient at Wadley Regional Medical Center in Texarkana, Arkansas on December 23, 1998. He called his mother from the facility after receiving a painkiller injection for abdominal discomfort. Goodwin said that he needed a ride back to his trailer in the Liberty / Eylau, Texas area. He called his mother again shortly afterwards and said that he planned to take a taxi.

    Authorities believe that Goodwin received a ride to The Ritz Motel on eastbound US Highway 67 and East Broad Street in Texarkana sometime afterwards. He phoned his mother at approximately 11:00 PM from the motel, but she was not able to answer the call.
    Goodwin's family members learned that Goodwin may have been placed in Living Hope Mental Hospital shortly after his disappearance. The caller said that Goodwin had since been transferred to a state-operated facility in Arkansas. This information has not been confirmed and Goodwin has not been located. Authorities have not ruled out foul play as a possibility in his case.
