The body of an Arkansas 9-year-old boy, who had been missing since earlier week, has been found days after police found his mother and 2-year-old sister murdered.
Police announced that they found a body believed to be Reilly Scarbrough’s shortly after noon Saturday in a “heavily wooded area” near Hatfield.
Reilly’s sister, Acelynn, and their mother, Bethan Jo Wester, 43, were found dead in a creek on Tuesday afternoon, according to reports.
The boy’s uncle, Steven Payne, 66, was discovered dead in his home on Thursday.
Eight law enforcement agencies were searching for the boy in the hope that he’d be found alive.
According to a press release, authorities found Reilly’s body with help from Brian Bliss Travis, who is currently incarcerated in the Polk County jail on unrelated charges.
It is not clear whether Bliss was involved in the deaths of Reilly’s family members, but police said they anticipate Bliss will face capital murder charges in this case.
