Ms. Hawkins disappeared from the University of Washington campus after 1am on June 11, 1974. She was last seen in the alley outside of Beta Theta Pi fraternity. She had been to a fraternity party earlier in the evening, and visited her boyfriend, Marvin Gellatly, on the way back to her sorority house. As she left Beta Theta Pi, Georgeann spoke with another friend, Duane Covey, who spoke with her from his second-story window that faced the alley. After saying goodbye to her friend, she headed down the alley toward her sorority house, Kappa Alpha Theta. She never arrived.
Ms. Hawkins is the victim of serial killer, Ted Bundy, who confessed to kidnapping and murdering her before his execution in 1989. He confessed to killing her in a remote area "across Mercer Island, east past Issaquah, up the hill, down the road, and up to the grassy area." Bundy claimed that Georgeann's remains were found with two of his other victims, Janice Ott and Denise Naslund, in Lake Sammamish State Park; investigators had found an extra leg bone and extra vertebrae at the site, but had been unidentified at the time and - so far - were never positively identified as Georgeann's.
