  • Details of Disappearance
    Hurst was last seen leaving his residence on Sunny Eve Road off of eastbound Highway 78 in Oxford, Alabama on January 26, 1997. He planned to attend a Super Bowl party at the nearby Red Horse Lounge in Anniston at the time of his disappearance. He never arrived at the lounge.

    Hurst was driving his blue 1990 Dodge Caravan with Alabama license plates 11FDH99 at the time.

    In 2014 a Cleburne County grand jury indicted 50-year-old Kenneth Earl Kemp II, along with 65-year-old Jack David Stovall II of Anniston in the kidnapping and murder of Floyd Roger Hurst. According to the indictments, the two suspects killed Hurst by “total body traumatic fragmentation.” Hurst and Stovall had a working relationship, and that Stovall was a person-of-interest in Hurst's disappearance since the day he went missing.

    Jack Stovall II lived next door to the Hurst family and was a friend of Floyd Hurst. Stovall, once the owner of the Red Horse Lounge, suspected Hurst and two other men of burglarizing his home and stealing cash, guns and $80,000 worth of jewelry. In December 1997, Stovall pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of murder-for-hire, saying he hired a Georgia man to kill Barry Jackson, one of the men he suspected of burglarizing his home. Stovall was also charged with, but did not plead guilty to, murder-for-hire in the death of Daryl Adams, who in the summer of 1997 was found shot dead inside a limousine near Alabama Show Palace in Anniston. Stovall was sentenced to nine years in prison and was released in 2005.
