Robert Glenn Brown -- Robert Glenn Brown was already on probation for a drug conviction in Tennessee when he allegedly shot and killed Larry Hawkins in Waco, Texas. Hawkins had been dead for several days when his body was found by Waco Police officers at his residence on November 10, 2003. The City of Waco Police Department requested that U.S. Marshals assume the fugitive investigation. Marshals have intensified their search for Robert Brown by making him the latest addition to their 15 Most Wanted fugitive list.

The officers who discovered Hawkins body reported several items missing from the victimís residence including a television, two portable phones and jacks, a DVD player, and a 1982 custom Honda motorcycle. Within 48 hours of the discovery Brown was seen riding the missing motorcycle, and according to witnesses, in possession of several items stolen from the victimís home, as well as a firearm.

An autopsy on Hawkins determined that his death had resulted from being shot multiple times. Several days prior to the homicide, Hawkins had been seen purchasing a firearm for personal protection.  It is thought that Hawkins and Brown may have become acquainted at D.J.ís, a bar near Waco, where Hawkins was a bartender.

Allegedly Hawkins had also purchased a blue Mustang car from Brown. The blue mustang is also missing.
