Body thought to be missing man found in Boone County

HARRISON, Ark. (AP) - The body believed to be that of a missing man has been found in Boone County and two people have been arrested in connection to his death.               

Capt. Bob King says a 22-year-old suspect told authorities that he shot 28-year-old Jeremy Scroggins during an attempted robbery in June. According to King, the suspect told police the location of Scroggins' body, which was found in woods near a cemetery, 3 miles northwest of Harrison. The remains were found Monday.               

The suspect has been arrested on several preliminary charges, including capital murder and aggravated robbery. King says he was already in jail on unrelated charges.               

A 25-year-old woman was arrested on a preliminary charge of aggravated robbery. Authorities say she and the other suspect picked up Scroggins and took him to the area where he was shot.
