Murder of the Paris Hermit, Auvord Bevans Braithwaite Jones
January 24th, 1963 was the last time the residents of Paris, Texas would see the eccentric and mysterious hermit, Auvord Bevans Braithwaite Jones. Not only had Auvord gained the respect and adoration of the town, he was highly intelligent and immensely well-read. While there is no actual proof that the man had a secret stash of money in a shack on the property he owned, there was plenty of talk of a hidden fortune there. Other facts contradict the notion but police still believe that Auvord was murdered for that very reason. His violent demise angered the community, stumped police, and began a mystery that remains unresolved to this day – 56 years later.
