Body Found in Fort Smith Apartment Complex


FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA) — Police have found a body inside the former home of a missing woman who is the mother of a man who is possibly connected to a double homicide in Fort Smith.

Police discovered the body inside a unit at Southbrooke Apartments, 8201 U.S. 271, which is the former home of 43-year-old Angela Shores. Shores was evicted from the apartment and supposed to be out of it by Aug. 14.

Shores is the missing and endangered mother or 19-year-old Lewis Shores.

Lewis Shores is considered a possible homicide suspect in the deaths of Jimmy and Norma Grubb.

Lt. Wes Milam with Fort Smith police said that the apartment the body was found in was cluttered and that police could not determine if the body was male or female. He described the body’s condition as bad. The body was sent to the state’s crime laboratory in Little Rock.

Jimmy and Norma Grubb, an elderly couple, were found dead inside their home in the 7700 block of Hermitage Drive last Tuesday.

Lewis Shores was the target of a manhunt in Logan County last Wednesday and was captured late that day. Authorities have not charged Lewis Shores for the homicides. However, he pleaded not guilty to aggravated residential burglary and theft of property.

Lewis Shores is believed to be the driver who fled from a vehicle accident in Logan County last Tuesday. The vehicle he was driving had tags that came back to the residence where Jimmy and Norma Grubb were found dead.
