    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Thursday marks 25 years since the murders of Kevin Ives, 17, and Don Henry, 16.  The Saline County teens were killed and left on a stretch of train track between Alexander and Benton.

    Speculation and conspiracy theories surrounded the case with allegations of corruption reaching as far as the Clinton White House. 

    The head of the Arkansas Crime lab ruled the teens smoked pot and passed out on the tracks.  But a nationally renowned medical examiner out of Georgia came up with a different conclusion - murder.

    "There are so many things that have been said about this case so much speculation has been said about this case that it makes it difficult to get a handle on exactly what happened," says Lt. Frost, head of Saline County's Criminal Investigation Division who now leads the investigation.

    "There are so many things that have been said about this case so much speculation has been said about this case that it makes it difficult to get a handle on exactly what happened," says Lt. Frost.

    Lt. Frost says witnesses withhold information out of fear for their lives. Key evidence like crime scene pictures and the entire grand jury testimony are all missing from the file. He also says that several potential witnesses are now deceased.

    "Witnesses have since passed.  A lot of people will say a lot of the people were murdered which they may have been. A lot of people have died of natural causes," says Lt. Frost.

    He maintains the case is solvable -- it just takes finding the right person with the right information.
