Body of missing real estate agent found in shallow grave

(CNN) — The body of missing Arkansas realtor Beverly Carter has been located north of the Little Rock area, the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office said early Tuesday.

Her body was found in a shallow grave near Cabot, about 20 miles northeast of central Little Rock.

Arron Lewis, of Jacksonville, will be charged with capital murder, the sheriff’s office said.

The 33-year-old was arrested by authorities Monday.

“Lewis admitted … to kidnapping Beverly Carter, but would not divulge her whereabouts,” the sheriff’s office said. After he was booked into the Pulaski County Regional Detention Facility, investigators said they obtained information that led them to the property where the grave was located.

Carter vanished last week when she went to show a home in the small community of Scott.

Police haven’t said how they linked Lewis to Carter or how they tracked him down, but they say Lewis left a hospital Sunday without notifying police while he was a person of interest in her disappearance.

Suspect was in wreck

Lewis, who was on parole, was in a traffic accident Sunday, and police arrived to find his automobile on top of a concrete culvert, according to an accident report from the sheriff’s office.

Lewis told police that a vehicle, which he couldn’t describe, had run him off the road. But a witness told police that he was behind Lewis before the accident, and “Lewis was traveling at a high rate of speed prior to the crash,” the report says.

Another witness told police that “the Lewis vehicle was going ‘so fast’ prior to the curve and she further stated that she observed the Lewis vehicle ‘fishtail’ around the curve, going into the ditch,” according to the report.

Paramedics took Lewis to Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock…(read more)
