Police say they are conducting a homicide investigation into the death of a 35-year-old deaf woman whose body was found in a ditch in Chicot County.
Vanessa Lynn Green disappeared about three weeks ago, and her body was found by relatives on Saturday a few miles south of Lake Village. Green could not hear or speak.
Arkansas State Police are investigating. Chicot County Sheriff Floyd White says one suspect has emerged but no arrests will be made until autopsy results are complete.
