MP of the week: Larkie Toups

This week’s featured missing person is Larkie Toups, who was found wandering around in an intoxicated state in Bogalusa, Louisiana on New Years’ Day, 2008. Rather than arrest him for being drunk in public, the police took him to a hotel and got him a room. Two hours later a hotel employee noticed he was missing and had left his door open and his ID and room key inside.

The police believe Toups may have been robbed and killed on the night of his disappearance. Certainly he would have been vulnerable. I did my usual check and, to my pleasure, found an article on the case from 2015 that provides a lot more information than I had before, and a new picture of Toups as well.
