Suspect held in Vasquez homicides; services scheduled

The Leaf Chronicle reports in this article that a suspect has been taken into custody in Arkansas for the murders of Juan and Thomas Vasquez in Clarksville (stories here and here). The investigation has been moving smoothly enough that authorities believe an increase in the reward for information may be unnecessary.

In the article, friends and colleagues were urging the public to help the Vasquez family in its grief and financial stress resulting from the deaths. Immaculate Conception Catholic Church will host a viewing from 3 to 8pm Thursday, a prayer vigil at 8pm Thursday night, and funeral services at 11am Friday morning.

The Leaf-Chronicle has consistently reported that officials believe the crimes were not motivated by race or by the men's advocacy for civil rights.

Focus: Justice
