Police Find Body of Kidnapped Pensacola Man

PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) -- Police say a man who was kidnapped from his apartment on Christmas Eve has been found dead in a wooded area less than a mile from his Pensacola apartment.
The body of Torrance "Top Cat" Hackworth was found Wednesday following an anonymous tip to police.
Police say four or five men forced their way into Hackworth's girlfriend's apartment on Monday. Hackworth was beaten, bound, gagged and thrown into the trunk of a car that was later found submerged in Pensacola Bay.
Police say the crime was drug-related. They're investigating a Christmas Day home invasion that happened about a block from where Hackworth was kidnapped. Three or four men entered an apartment and shot one man shot in the foot, the other in the stomach.
