Major Todd Goodyear of the Bedford County sheriff’s department said that on Nov. 13, hours before Riggins was reported missing, he told his girlfriend that “he was going to do burglaries in the Barefoot Bay area with another individual.” That night, Bedford County sheriff deputies were called to Barefoot Bay following reports of two suspicious men in black clothing in the area. According to investigators, Riggins called his girlfriend as he tried to evade police and told her that he was in hiding. During the search, officers heard yelling, but they could not locate its source, said Goodyear. Riggins was reported missing less than 24 hours after his last call to his girlfriend. His body was found in the lake ten days later.
