The Vanished Podcast
In December of 2002, 21-year old James Wiggins left his home in Ruston, Louisiana, on foot, saying he was going to a nearby grocery store. James never returned home. The following morning, the owner of a convenience shop located several miles outside of Ruston found a young man sleeping at his store’s doorstep. When he opened up his shop, the man came in and bought a pack of cigarettes. The owner checked the man’s identification and reported to the police that he was sure it was James Wiggins. Over the years, there have been some bizarre leads that have crept up. Some of these leads point to James being alive, while others point to him being the victim of foul play, but no one knows for sure.
If you have any information about the disappearance of James Wiggins, please contact the Ruston Police Department at (318) 251-8621 or you can contact Ruston Lincoln Crime Stoppers at 318-255-1111.
