The Glenwood Police Department is investigating the murder of an 18-year-old Tuesday morning who was set to appear in court in February for drug charges.
According to police, officers found the body of 18-year-old Jody Chance Fogle in the early morning hours.
Police have not released any other details in the murder case.
In April 2017, the Glenwood Herald reported that 19-year-old Christopher Ledbetter accused Fogle of giving counterfeit $100 bills to him. Ledbetter was charged with first degree forgery and an investigation concluded the bills originated from a website. Fogle was not charged in the case.
Then in October 2017, Fogle was arrested in Montgomery County and charged with possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia. According to court documents, a jury trial was originally scheduled for January 12, but was moved to February 9.
Glenwood police are investigating the homicide along with the Arkansas State Police, Pike County Sheriff's Department, and the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department.
