Standoff Underway in Arkansas Ozarks, Trooper Wounded

MARCH 22, 2004 - Posted at 2:56 p.m. CDT

 

ALREAD, AR - State Police say they were trying to serve a warrant this morning when two men in Van Buren County opened fire, wounding a trooper.  A standoff continues.

Police say they wanted to speak to 49-year-old Mark Holsombach and 28-year-old William J. Frazier about a husband and wife who disappeared several weeks ago.

Police and agents from the FBI and federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have surrounded what state police call a "compound home" in a mountain area near Alread.

Still missing are 46-year-old Theodore R. Throneberry and his wife, 45-year-old Ann Ryberg Throneberry.

Police said Holsombach and Frazier had been seen earlier standing in Mrs. Throneberry's front yard.  Investigators say the men were the last two people seen with the woman.

Authorities say Frazier has felony warrants in Florida and Holsombach has 12 felony convictions scattered across the country.

Trooper Charlie Edmonson suffered a wound to his left arm.
