One of the perps that did the crime was 'Bear'
Rogers' son, or adopted son. He had a knickname,
I believe "Beau" or "Buck", not sure about nickname. I do remember his last name was Rogers. A tall dark complected guy with black hair.
does BOO Sound right?

what about the old Phil Harper case in the house behind the store on the right as you turn left on 139 going towards Mounds? Happened in August 1973. It was ruled a suicide, but there ain't no way. He had TWO bullet holes in his head.
He was a tough - rough guy. Big raw boned fella. I believe he is the one who shot Junior
off a bar stool in a local club. There had been
bad blood between the two of them for some time.
They were both bad to the bone, if provoked.
I think there was a willingness to just let it
go dead the easiest way possible. He was from
Cardwell, I believe.

I think you may have cleared it up, he was Sonja's son. She did live with 'Bear'.
Wasn't there anotherperson involved in the
shooting.

You're probably right. I investigated that case until the Arkansas State Police sent a CID officer up from West Memphis. He's the one who ruled it a suicide. Although I had touched NOTHING, I had already taken 41 pictures, and there AIN'T NO WAY it was a suicide.

But yes, you're right. The living room was FULL of alcoholic beverages and it was obvious there had been some partying going on, so there's no telling what happened. I remember it had been almost a week before we were notified, it was in August and HOT, and being in the same room was almost unbearable. I was holding my own, breathing through my mouth until a big green fly flew into my mouth. That's where I lost it, but I did make it to the side door first

They were taken to 'Cornbread Corner'. It's on Campground Road. My uncle lives across the fence. I remember that incident also. I was a little girl then. They were taken, and I believe shot, not sure. Also, was told that one or both of them were hung by their own belt.
both were shot in the head bill was tied to a tree with his hands behind his back with his own belt.

I thought the Dollins guy shot someone in a night club, then committed suicide after he was convicted. Kind of fuzzy on that.

If someone does not get a handle on crime, the murders can and will go unsolved. Need a new Sheriff, one who will work!

I would like some details on the Ray Glover incident. Happened back in the 70's he murdered his girlfriend? put her in a car and burned her over embezzlement?
Ray Glover was not Judy's boyfriend. They were in an auto theft ring together. I think she may have had something with his nephew.
She wanted out of the gang and they killed her. Ray his brothed and nephew.
I was sitting with her and some friends that night at the Razorback Cafe owned by my uncle at the time.
It was later after midnight when they killed her.

I would love to be able to talk to him as well...sooo many questions! I'm with you on the main one, WHY? I never got to meet my uncle, because he was killed before I was born!

I remember a muder back in 90, 91, 92. I cant remember witch year exactly but, two male teens had robbed an old man for his money and then kiled him. I think it was on the rail road tracks somewhere in Paragould. It has been awile back so correct me if I am wrong. From what I remember June Rogers brother was the one that done the killing. Lee Ward was with Rogers and seen everything but, somehow got off. Rogers went to prison. I dont know if Lee went to the cops or what but, I do remember that their was bad blood between the family's children cause Rogers Family felt that Ward should have done some time as well cause he was with Rogers when it happen. This is just what I remember of the story. I could be wrong about some of it. If I am. I am sorry. Feel free to include anything I have left out or was wrong about.
