On Oct. 2, the processing of human remains continued near the Arkansas River in Sebastian County. Several human bones, vertebrae, and clothing items were identified and processed by the Sebastian County Sheriff’s Office Metro Crime Scene team about eight feet from the river’s edge. Investigators have reached out to several different agencies in our area for reports of missing subjects. At this time this information is being looked at by investigators. The investigation is ongoing. Cause of death and identity of the subject are unknown at this time. On Oct. 1, SCSO received a 911 call from fishermen on the Arkansas River who found what they believed to be human remains about 1.5 miles downstream from Vache Grasse Park near Lavaca. The investigation is ongoing.
