Lonoke County deputies were in Beebe last week hunting for two key pieces of evidence in connection with a homicide in Lonoke County on Jan. 19, 2013. Cpt. Kevin McCoy of the Lonoke County Sheriff’s Office said that the victim was Hubert Jackson, of Lonoke. He also said that two suspects were in custody and being charged with capital murder. They are Nicholas Holloway, 22, of Beebe and Jeremy Davis, 29, of Lonoke.

Divers from the White County Sheriff’s Dept. spent most of the day in Beebe Thursday, Jan. 31st,  searching the bottom of a pond on Dewitt Henry Dr. About 5 p.m.  the divers found the evidence that had been searching for in the pond. The night before, Cpt. McCoy had found one piece of evidence in a drainage hole by Centennial Bank on Dewitt Henry Dr.

“I’d like to thank the White County Sheriff’s Office divers for their hard work,” Cpt. McCoy said. Also working on the investigation are Cpl. Steve Morgan and Investigator Matt Edwards of the Lonoke County Sheriff’s Office. Cpt. Kevin McCoy is the lead investigator.
