The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is conducting a death investigation along Gibb Anderson Road, just south of Grider Field Ladd Road in Jefferson County, Arkansas. The body of an unidentified female was found along the roadside at approximately 10:00 a.m.

“When investigators arrived, they did not find a source of identification. Therefore, there is very little information to go on at this time,” said Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Operations Commander, Major Lafayette Woods, Jr.  “Without an autopsy and forensics report from the State Medical Examiner’s Office, our investigators are left to comb through potential missing person’s cases to aid them in determining the identity of the body found.”

Investigators are also seeking the circumstances of which the person died.  They hope that forensics can shed some light on the identity of the person that was found.

“An autopsy will be performed by the Arkansas State Medical Examiner’s Office on Thursday, July 12, 2018,” said Jefferson County Coroner Chad Kelley.

Anyone with information concerning the possible identity of the person mentioned in this investigation or the circumstances surrounding their death is asked to call the Criminal Investigation Division of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office at (870) 541-5496
