Michael Steven 'Zombie Mike' Hawkins, Traveling Carnival Worker, Wanted For Horrific Rapes
Michael Steven Hawkins is reportedly known by the nickname “Zombie Mike” due to his poor hygiene.
The U.S. Marshals are on the hunt for Michael Steven Hawkins — commonly known by his nickname, “Zombie Mike." Reports say he's called this due to his poor hygiene.
Hawkins is charged with rape, aggravated sex abuse, and a criminal sex act with a person incapable of consent — specifically a Schenectady, New York, woman who is wheelchair-bound and mentally challenged.
Marshals believe that first incident occurred in June 2012, when the victim in the wheelchair was allegedly attacked and raped by Hawkins.
The second incident was 17 months later, in November 2013. Authorities say Hawkins assaulted a friend’s wife after a family gathering.
In 2017, the Daily Gazette released videos of Hawkins playing the bass guitar. Deputy U.S. Marshal Anthony Loguidice said, "Now you can see how he acts, how he talks. It's a huge tool for us."
“Hawkins was previously employed with traveling carnival companies from New Jersey and North Carolina, leading investigators to believe he could be doing similar work with companies in Ohio, Tennessee, Puerto Rico, and other states along the East Coast,” Delaware Online adds.
Hawkins is also known to have ties to New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia, California, Florida, and Oregon.
CNY Central reports that Hawkins is known to abuse alcohol and has a temper.
