Crittenden County Continues Probe into Earle Murder, Arson

JANUARY 11, 2007 - Posted at 4:17 p.m. CST

 

EARLE, AR - Crittenden County authorities are continuing their investigation into two high profile cases in Earle.

The Earle Police Department does not have a criminal investigation division, so the cases are being handled by the Crittenden County Sheriff's Department. 

The first of the two crimes occured on December 11 when a fire was intentionally set at the city hall's annex building.  The second crime occured two days later at a home in close proximity to the annex building, when the house burned in an apparent arson.  Firefighters later found 52-year-old Patricial Fuller dead in her living room.  It was first thought to be accidental, but is now being investigated as a homicide.

Investigators are examining the possibility of a link between the two crimes.
