Wasn't there an unsolved murder in Des Arc of a female addict? Her body was in the edge of the river?

yes, there was an unsolved murder in Des Arc. They found the body of a middle aged woman near the White River, but to this day they have never found the murderer. They have suspects which they think that more than one person was involved in the murder.

The police may not be worrying about this case but there are people that know some things and justice will be served. The sad part of this case is that Cathy's own nephew is part of the police force in this town. He lied to all of the family. Justice will find him as well.

Its sad but true about Alvin and He should get what Hes got coming to him He was doing the nasty with a under age Girl and didn't want to rock the boat because he knew his cop friends knew about it Her mama worked at the Clarendon Police station . Her Mama liked much older men too . I pray Cathy gets justice soon .

So someone in Stuttgart thinks Alvin, Cathy's nephew, lied to all the family. you people should be ashamed and you don't know what you are talking about. Let Cathy rest in peace. I certainly hope her son who lives in Stuttgart does not believe this. I believe he has a better head on him than that. You people should find something that is true to talk about. And the under age girl you are talking about, isn't she his wife? Get a life folks. God sees the lies you are spreading here and you will answer to Him.

Just to clear one thing up. Alvin has not been a part of the police in Clarendon for about 25 years or does the truth matter. The family is tired of the lies and Alvin is a part of the family. He has suffered for this because SOME who do not care about the real truth keep spreading these lies. I am sure Joey knows the real truth. He holds no grudge against Alvin. All Alvin did was try to keep the family from seeing the shape Cathy's body was in when she was found. He had nothing to do with anything else that may or may not have happened. So "justice will be served" try talking about something you know and not what you have been told.
so sorry

If you think that Cathy was murdered as you say and people covered it up, why don't you get the state police involved? Then maybe the right people will be punished.

wasn't this post about a Des Arc case????? You clarendon people should get your own post going somewhere else. And getting the state police doesnt help much....as you see the Des Arc case is still unsolved....and it's not the only one in that town unsolved. State Police are involved in both of them.
not true

Alvin was born in 1962..that would not make him 50 even now. and according to Joey, he does talk to Alvin.
