Rough news in our town

I'm starting to think Jareds class is jinxed. Last week, there was a really bad wreck on the highway 1 mile from our house. A classmate of Jareds was in that wreck and his arm was amputated from his body on impact. He did survive. Then, this....also a classmate of Jareds. This happened at the junkyard less then 2 1/2 miles from our house. :(

Salvage yard bodies identified

Pope County Sheriff Shane Jones released the identities of two bodies found in a crushed car at a salvage yard in Russellville as that of Aaron Brock, 22, and Beau Dewitt, 22 — two Yell County men who went missing last Friday.

According to a release from the Pope County Sheriff's office, the deaths are being investigated as a homicide.

Jones said authorities currently have no suspects.

"At this time we are running down leads," he said.

The bodies were found inside a crushed car at the U-Pull-It Auto Salvage Yard located at 3001 South Mobile Avenue at approximately 2:45 p.m. on Tuesday.

Arkansas State Police, the Pope County Sheriff Department and Russellville Police Department have worked together on the investigation, which is ongoing. The vehicle containing the bodies was moved from the salvage yard and delivered to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory for examination and removal of the remains.

Jones said the gravity of the grisly discovery was uncharacteristic of the Russellville area.

"It's just unfortunate," he said. "We've got a good community here, and it's just unfortunate when these things happen in our area. We're doing everything we can with the assistance of the Arkansas State Police and Russellville Police Department. We're doing everything we can to bring justice to the victims."
