JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

The average number of murders per year in the city of Jonesboro has not changed much in the last five years, according to an analysis of the statistics from the Jonesboro Police Department.

With the close of 2016, the police department investigated the murders of four people, including the most recent double murder on Miller Street.

That case remains open, as does the murder of Stacey Devine.

Devine was found dead in February in a field near Commerce Drive and Highway 18 near Pacific Road.

The number of murders over the last five years is as follows:

  • 2016 – 4 murders
  • 2015 – 5 murders
  • 2014 – 5 murders
  • 2013 – 2 murders
  • 2012 – 4 murders
