    Body found in Garland County, later identified as Dawna Natzke 

    HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE, Ark. (AP) - Garland County Prosecutor Steve Oliver said an arrest warrant has been issued for the boyfriend of a Hot Springs Village police dispatcher who was killed nearly two years ago.

    Oliver said the warrant was issued Monday on a first-degree murder charge for Kevin Duck in the December 2011 death of Dawna Natzke.

    Natzke was last seen Dec. 21, 2011, leaving a holiday party with Duck. Her body was found New Year's Eve in a remote area in the Ouachita National Forest.

    Oliver said Duck is not in custody and is believed to be in Louisiana. He did not know if Duck has an attorney.

    Duck told detectives in 2011 that the couple returned to Natzke's home after the party and that she was gone when he awoke the next morning.
