The cause of death has been ruled a homicide in the case of the body found in a septic tank on the late Jerry Stevens’ property on Alderman Road near Ash Flat.
The body had been dismembered and dropped through the lid of the septic tank, Sharp County Sheriff Dale Weaver said. According to the University of Arkansas Little Rock Department of Anthropology, where the bones had been sent, the body had been sawed apart, which is what led them to rule the death a homicide, Weaver said.
The cause of death remains unknown.
