Gene Whitacre, disappeared from a bowling alley on the outskirts of Albuquerque, New Mexico on the evening of June 30th, 1947. He was treasurer of his bowling league and was carrying about $400 in cash on him. He did not return to Sandia Base New Mexico and was listed as AWOL on July 1st. The day after his disappearance, police found his army cap, a pair of thick lensed glasses, a necktie, and a blood stained shirt with two slashes in the backin a side street near the bowling alley. He has never been found. he FBI and the Defense Department spent much time questioning family members, wire tapping their phones, and intercepting mail in the hopes that Gene would contact one of them. Nothing was ever found. He was possibly privy to some sensitive information due to his job in the army at the base.Sandia Base was, from 1946 to 1971, the principal nuclear weapons installation of the United States Department of Defense. His rank was corporal. The army denied he had access to any information that would endanger national security.
