Good morning everyone! I want all to know we are receiving many calls and complaints about a caller who is stating that he is with the Social Security Administration Office. He is stating it is very important that he speaks with you immediately. The name he is using is Shawn Murphy. One of the numbers he has called from is 972-763-9927. I called the young man and identified who I was!!! I asked him why is he calling residents in my County and asking them for personal information!!! He hung upon me, so I kept calling back and calling back to let him know we are onto his scam!!! I will continue to aggravate him too!!! Shows me he is a SCAMMER!!! If Shawn Murphy calls you, stating that he is with Social Security Administration asking you for your personal information, please hang up immediately!!! Do not ever give your personal information, checking account information, or a credit card to anyone calling you, that you haven’t actually contacted them yourself!!! There is so many scams going on and they seem to be preying on a lot of our elderly residents!!! Please get word out to everyone you know, to never share Information on the phone to all these scammers!!! There are many saying you have won something, need your checking account to deposit money in, IRS or we are coming after you!!! We have new ones everyday!! My advice hang up immediately!!! If you have any questions or need help contact my office at 870-265-8020. May God Bless, Sheriff Ronald Nichols

His examination of the of boat determined it was still at full throttle & was out of gas. After running boat verification number it was determined the boat was registered to Tom Willis Stovall of Fouke, Arkansas 71837. There were several attempts made by game & fish officers to locate a relative of Mr. Stovall. Through a friend officers were able to locate his daughter, who stated that Mr. Stovall was indeed at Grand Lake fishing. I notified my deputies and Sammy Angel of Lake Village Fire & Rescue of the incident, where along with Ark. Game & Fish officers, we began the search for Mr. Stovall. Tom Willis Stovall, age 79, of Fouke Ark., body was recovered from Grand Lake on 5/16/18, he was pronounced dead at the scene at 1:10 p.m. by Deputy Coroner Patrick Hicks & transported to Bishop King Funeral home of Lake Village.

I would also like to give thanks to Mr. Roger & Mrs. Vickie Hensley, Allen & Antionette Woodall, Vivian, Chester, & Henry Hensley for all that each of you done for the rescue crew members & the family of Mr. Stovall's May God Bless Sheriff Ronald Nichols
