    DA’s Cold Case Unit clears 43-year old homicide: They Need Help in Finding Family Members.

    A review of Leon Hicks obituary shows he had two adult children, Mike Hicks of Chattanooga and Mrs. William Griffith of Erlanger, Kentucky.
    The CCU's attempts to locate them have been unsuccessful.

    They ask if anyone knows how to contact either of them, please have them call the Cold Case Unit at 423-209-7470 or by email at coldcases@hcdatn.org .

    thanks! after I did it, I thought to myself that it didn't look right.

    Sad, Mr. Hicks restaurant was a street over from where my grandparents lived. I've shared this with my family in hopes they remember him or his children.

    As a result of media coverage of this case, we received a call from the victim’s nephew. He put us in touch with his father, Buck Hicks. Buck is the brother of Leon Hicks and was the co-owner of Hicks Brothers Restaurant. Buck is 91 years old, currently recovering from a medical issue. We did get a lead on Leon Hick’s son (Mike Hicks) and are trying to contact him now.

    Melydia Clewell made contact with Mike Hicks, the victim’s son. Mike advises he was 12yo at the time of his father’s murder. He saw the media coverage when we established the Cold Case Unit and had considered contacting us to ask that we take a look at his dad’s case.
