JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police say they have new evidence in the Stacey Devine murder case.

Investigators said Tuesday a citizen found Devine’s wallet and cell phone on Sunday and turned them over to police.

Officers are evaluating the items for their evidentiary potential, according to a news release from the Jonesboro Police Department.

They did not say where the items were discovered.

In February a man walking his dog discovered Devine’s body near the intersection of Commerce Drive and Pacific Road.

An autopsy revealed the 41-year-old Jonesboro woman had died of strangulation.

Her car was found the following Monday near Ellis Lane and Prospect, approximately two miles from where her body had been found.

Anyone with information regarding the case may call the Jonesboro Police Department at (870) 935-5562 or Jonesboro Crime Stoppers at 935-7867 (935-STOP.)
