Shortly after midnight, Saturday night, Monticello police responded to a call on Dillard Street, leading to the arrest of a Little Rock man for shooting of a Monticello man.
On October 29, 2012, Elizabeth Ann Davis, age 66 of Warren, was waiting for a train to pass, at the Wilmar train crossing, when suddenly her life came to an end, as a loaded asphalt truck barreling down the highway behind her crashed into her mini-van, killing her instantly.
To emphasize the GoFundMe project to support former Drew County Deputy Jeremy Chapman, MLive is posting the actual video of the shooting (with his permission) to help more people realize the seriousness of the events, that night.
Monticello Police officers joined the search a couple of hours later, and they also were past midnight, working to apprehend the felon, who was a threat to the town they serve and protect. They also put the needs of residents in front of their own.
When Tuesday’s wildfire was reported, our Monticello Fire Dept., along with the Arkansas Forestry Commission, battled the blaze for over 6 hours, as the fire changed directions, as the wind changed several times, in the smoke and fire and fumes.
We need to recognize how valuable our first responders are to our community; keeping us safe, regardless of the threat that they are protecting us from.
Minutes after 11 AM, the Dallas County jail escapee was taken into custody in a joint operation by DCSO, MPD, ASP and other agencies.
