American mass murderer, featured in the 1966 non-fiction novel In Cold Blood written by Truman Capote. A white male, average size and build, he had dark hair, blue eyes and a ruddy complexion. He worked as a car painter and mechanic, bringing in extra cash as a petty thief.

Hickock married Carol, the daughter of a Baptist preacher in July 1950, eloping together. They separated in 1956 and he made a second marriage to a pregnant girlfriend. He divorced twice and had a total of three sons.

While serving a jail sentence for burglary, Hickock met Perry Smith, a fellow cellmate. He was paroled on 13 August 1959. On 15 November 1959, after being released, the two men shot and killed the four members of the Clutter family in Holcomb, Kansas after unsuccessfully ransacking their home for a non-existent bank-roll.
