I had a super good time with this cool dude today! I learned a lot about future Sheriff Ryder Gililland (because he wants to wear the hat and boots). He also already has the horse for the job! What he described as a gentle white horse named Gray! If backup is needed, his brothers horse (Jug Head) can fill in! When Ryder's not on patrol around the house he enjoys deer hunting and playing sports. Ryder likes basketball but loves soccer! He also loves El Mariachi cheese dip (I totally agree). Ryder was recently described as "well behaved and a good friend" by his teacher Mrs. Hendrickson when named Student of the Week! We can totally see why! Thanks for hanging out with us Ryder!

Chief Padgett requested the assistance of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division. The investigation was ruled a double homicide and the women were identified as the homeowner, Phyllis Ann Chambers and her sister, Martha Jane Veazey. Both women died as a result of blunt force trauma. Today, I'm pleased to announce the arrest of Mark Allan Watts age 47 of Danville. I anticipate Murder charges to be filed by 15th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Thomas Tatum. Watts is currently being held, without bond, at the Yell County Detention Center awaiting his initial court appearance. I appreciate the hard work and professionalism of the investigation team. The tireless efforts paid off today. I'd like to personally thank Special Agents Jake Bartlett, Mark Bryce, Joe Carter, Stewart Condley, Kevin Brown and Buster Rinks with the Arkansas State Police, Kenneth Jackson, Tommy Broadstock, Mario Lozano and John Stafford of the Danville Police, Coroner Donna Wells, Yell County Sheriff's Deputies who saturated the area that night and Yell County 911 for their professionalism during the initial call. I'd also like to thank the community for your patience during the investigation. I understand how frustrating a complex case such as this can be with limited information being released. I am thankful for the calls, texts and messages from the community with tips which were all thoroughly examined. The investigation is continuing at this time with a search of an area with the Yell County Dive Team for the murder weapon due west of the initial crime scene. I will release additional details as they arise.
