Man admits to 1993 murder during television interview

He said God wanted him to confess to 25-year-old killing

After almost 25 years, a cold case murder in California may have finally been solved.

In 1993, 20-year-old Frank Wesley McAlister was killed. "Horrible, horrible, absolutely horrible every day", Hawkins said of what it's been like in the years since the murder. "Frank never got to have a life, but we were teenagers and now I'm 44 and still haven't even had a life and now most likely won't anyway".

After the interview, Hawkins went to the Shasta County Sheriff's office to meet with police investigators, the Redding Police Department said.

McAlister's family reported him missing at the time, but his remains weren't found until the next year by a hiker.

Shanna Culver, who was 16 at the time of the killing, told police this week that the four were in the vehicle, but that McAlister dropped her, her brother and Hawkins off near a Redding park - similar to the story police said the trio had told before.

According to KRCR, the three-following a plan Hawkins claims was the Culvers' idea-robbed McAlister after tricking him into meeting them under the pretense that a meth transaction was going to take place.

"God, Christ - these things that have happened throughout my whole life since then, for over 25 years, have pushed me and pushed me to do the right thing", Hawkins said.

An insurance settlement McAlister received prior to his slaying ― approximately $4,500 from a auto accident ― might have been a motive in his death, according to the Redding Record Searchlight.

Hawkins and both siblings have been arrested.

He told investigators that he, Curtis Culver, and Shanna Culver lured McCalister to an area near Hawkins's hometown of Shingletown and stabbed him to death. McAlister had a large amount of cash that the trio wanted to steal to buy methamphetamine, Hawkins said. The 19-year-old's skeletal remains were found in rural Northern California months after the vehicle he'd been driving was found mysteriously abandoned in a Costco parking lot in Redding. "I know the wrong can't be changed, but this is as close as I can come to doing the right thing". "All the detectives that had worked it have long since retired", Capt. Eric Wallace said Friday.

Curtis Culver, on the other hand, told police that Hawkins did all the stabbing, the complaint says.

Once McAlister met them in rural Shasta County, their plan turned to one of murder, and Hawkins and Curtis Culver stabbed McAlister to death, according to Hawkins' confession. All three are being held on suspicion of homicide at the Shasta County Jail.

The station told law enforcement officials that they would not report the story until its journalists could corroborate what Hawkins told them.

Red Bluff A brother and sister from Red Bluff have been arrested in connection with a 1993 Shingletown murder after a third suspect came forward to confess.

"We sincerely hope that the recent arrest of Frank's alleged murderers will bring some measure of closure to his family", officials said in a statement. The police have also asked people to contact them on 530-225-4200 if they have any information regarding the case.
