Richard (Dick) Eugene Hickock
Hickock's Former Life
Dick Hickock was born in Kansas City, Kansas on June 6, 1931 during the Great Depression. Originally a popular student and athlete in high school, it all changed when he was in a serious car accident in 1950 that left him seriously injured. Though he wanted to attend college, his parents, both being farm workers, couldn't provide him with a higher education. He got his first job at the age of 16, at the Santa Fe Railroad Company. When he was 19, he married a girl of 16 named Carol Bryan. They later had three sons together. He took a job as a mechanic at the Mark Buick Company until they suffered financial problems, which became worse after Hickock was in another car accident that slightly disfigured his face and left him out of work during his recovery period. After he impregnated a young lady by the name of Margaret Edna outside his marriage, him and Bryan became seperated. He then married Margaret, but that ended in divorce as well. In order to satisfy his life, he became a petty criminal committing acts of check fraud, which got him arrested in January of 1956. He was then sentenced to a maximum of five years at the Kansas State Penitentiary, where he met Perry Smith.
