Details of Disappearance King was last seen in the 4000 block of Hilldale Avenue in Oroville, California sometime between 11:30 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on March 26, 2013. He has never been heard from again.
One of the contacts King made as a result of his marijuana sales was Donald Edward Cheatham Jr., who owned a business called Amazon Garden Supply. In the spring of 2013, the two men struck a deal where Cheatham would buy some property on Old Olive Highway from King in exchange for 160 pounds of marijuana.
On the day he went missing, King went to have a meeting with Cheatham. His girlfriend became concerned when he didn't return home by evening, and drove to Cheatham's house. When she saw King's pickup truck parked out front, she assumed he must be there and went home again.
King's girlfriend didn't report him missing until March 29, because she thought he might have been arrested. Since his disappearance there hasn't been any activity on his cellular phone or bank accounts. An examination of his truck turned up no clues.
When questioned by police, Cheatham said he and King had conducted a business transaction in Berry Creek, and after that he dropped King off in a remote area at Oro-Quincy Highway and never saw him again. Authorities were suspicious of his story and searched Cheatham's residence, finding a stolen gun, 120 pounds of marijuana and $59,000 in cash.
Cheatham and his wife were charged with receiving stolen property, cultivating marijuana and possessing it for sale. None of the charges were related to King's actual disappearance. In March 2014, the charges against Cheatham's wife were dismissed and he himself was acquitted of everything except one misdemeanor count of marijuana possession; Cheatham had an authorization to use marijuana for medical purposes, but wasn't allowed to have more than an ounce at a time.
Cheatham has been named as a person of interest in King's case. However, in November 2019, he and another man were shot to death in Klamath Falls, Oregon, and a third man was injured. Gillian Bradley has been charged with second-degree murder, attempted murder and other offenses in connection with the shooting.
Foul play is suspected in King's disappearance and authorities believe his drug involvement was a factor.
