Boone County, Ark. Sheriff Confirms 2nd Body Found is Amy Villines


The Boone County Sheriff’s Office confirms the body of Amy Villines was found Saturday, February 9,  along Crooked Creek.

Searchers found the body of her husband John last week along the creek about three miles away from Amy Villines’ body.

Searchers quickly found the couple’s SUV lodged against a bridge. The city later drained Harrison Lake in the search, but only found pieces of clothing. Investigators say John and Amy Villines lost control of an SUV in flash flooding on November 30. The couple is known as business leaders in the community.

Investigators say both bodies were recovered from piles of debris. The Arkansas State Examiner’s Office assisted with autopsies in the case.

The family held a memorial for the couple February 2.
