Residents Fearful After Body is Found Outside of Their Neighborhood

News

A woman left for dead in the middle of the road.

“I have never heard of anything happening out here. I’m from Little Rock and hear about it happening all the time there but never where I’m at,” said nearby resident, Kaitlyn Holt.

A day has passed, and still no answers. The body was found at Don Tyson Parkway and George Anderson Road in Springdale.

Residents living just outside of the crime scene are wondering how this could have happened in their backyard.

“We just had a three-month-old and we just moved into the neighborhood. It just makes me rethink if this is the right place to be raising her,” said Holt.

“It is a big concern for me especially as a mother because what happened is shocking,” said a resident who chose to be anonymous.

Another resident said she is now on high alert and hopes police actively look out for her community.

“Since I moved here a year ago I’ve only seen police patrolling twice so it worries me because sometimes I go walking to the park and haven’t noticed any police in the area,” she said.

The victim’s body was sent off to the state medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.

Police said it is still under investigation and anyone with information is asked to call the Springdale Police Department.
