Arkansas State Police Special Agents are investigating an apparent homicide reported to the Scott County Sheriff’s Department earlier today.

A resident at 1091 Ross Creek Road south of Waldron contacted the sheriff’s department at 4:10 a.m. to report hearing gunshots. Upon their arrival outside the home, deputies found a deceased female sitting in a pick-up truck passenger seat.

State Police special agents later today identified the victim as Brehana Lee Duran, 24, of Booneville.  The body will be examined at the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory to determine the manner and cause of death.

A man who attempted to flee from Waldron police officers earlier today and who matches the description of the driver last seen in the truck found on Ross Creek Road is being questioned by state police.
