Homicide Investigation and Arrest Near Magazine
On Sunday, August 7th, the Logan County Sheriff's Office 911 Dispatch received a call that a woman was shot and deceased at a house on East State Highway 10 east of Magazine. Deputies from the Logan County Sheriff's Office and a Logan County E.M.S. ambulance arrived and found Julia Frost, 45, deceased from apparent gunshot wounds inside the house. She is a resident of the house. Logan County Sheriff's Office investigators investigated the scene with the assistance of a special agent from the Arkansas State Police. Our investigators arrested a sixteen-year-old male on anticipated murder charges and due to his age, he is being held at a juvenile detention center. The Logan County Coroner's Office took possession of the victim's body and transported the body to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory. A handgun that is believed to have been used by the suspect was later recovered in a pond behind the house.
We thank the Arkansas State Police, the Russellville Police Department, the Yell County Sheriff's Office, and the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission for their assistance in the investigation. Our prayers go out to the family for their loss.
