Twelve-Year-Old Double Murder Case Remains Unsolved in Poinsett County

DECEMBER 4, 2006 - Posted at 7:36 a.m. CST

 

LEPANTO, AR - After more than a dozen years, investigators say they still don't know who killed Homer and Rosie Woodruff of Lepanto.  The couple was found stabbed to death at their home on September 14, 1994.

Poinsett County Sheriff Larry Mills says his office has been working with the Arkansas State Police for years, following up on leads in the killings.

In the past nine years, investigators have questioned nearly 40 people from the Lepanto area about the case, seeking clues about the murders.

Mills says residents in the town of about 2,200 people have brought in leads, but details of the fateful September day still remain unknown.  He still believes someone in Lepanto knows what happened to the Woodruffs.
