  • Details of Disappearance
    Sessions was last seen leaving Charleston Memorial Hospital on Calhoun Street in Charleston, South Carolina on July 9, 1999. He had told his mother, whom he lived with, that he was going out for a pack of cigarettes. Somehow, he ended up at the hospital, and was treated and released. It's unknown why he was admitted to the hospital; he may have been severely dehydrated or intoxicated.

    Sessions was seen leaving the hospital and approaching a cab. As he reached the taxi, he got into an argument with the driver who later refused to take him anywhere. A cop was called to help him get home, but Sessions refused the ride. He has never been heard from again. Foul play is not suspected, but he is presumed dead.
    Mr Sessions was declared dead by probate court on 1/26/06.
