Details of Disappearance Wiggins was last seen in Pitt County, North Carolina on November 20, 1988. At 10:30 a.m., he received a telephone call, and afterwards he acted fearful and refused to say who the call was from. A short time later, he left his house with $500 in cash and never returned.
He has never been heard from again. A month after his disappearance, his light blue 1978 Oldsmobile was found abandoned in a wooded area off Maple Cypress Road in Craven County, North Carolina. Wiggins often cut down trees for money, and he had three chainsaws in the trunk of his car at the time of his disappearance. When his vehicle was located, one of the chainsaws was missing.
His brother believes he was murdered and possibly cut up with the missing chainsaw and fed to pigs. He believes he who the assailants were; he thinks they were people whom Wiggins had known well and trusted. One of the suspects in his disappearance was killed in a car wreck shortly after Wiggins disappeared. The person's identity has never been released.
Foul play is suspected in Wiggins's disappearance, but little evidence is available in his case. He was declared legally dead in 2007.
