Circumstances

Bernalillo
Harvey Eugene "Gene" Whitacre went into a bowling alley in Albuquerque, NM on the night of 06/30/1947. He was treasurer of his bowling league and was carrying about $400 in cash on him. He did not return to the Sandia Base as of roll-call the next day, 07/01/1947. His broken glasses, necktie, army cap, and shirt with slash marks were found in a side street near the bowling alley. He has never been found. The FBI and the Defense Department spent much time and effort questioning family members, wire tapping their phones, and intercepting mail in the hopes that Gene would contact one of them but that did not happen. He was possibly privy to some sensitive information due to his job in the army at the base. His rank was corporal.
