Steven P. Garrett
On March 29, 2015, shortly after 5:00 p.m., a Boone County resident located human remains near U.S. Hwy 65 between State Hwy 14 and the Missouri state line. Investigators from the Boone County Sheriff’s Department, the Boone County Coroner’s Office and the Arkansas State Medical Examiner’s Office began working together to determine the person’s identity and cause of death.
Items recovered at the scene indicate the deceased’s identity as Steven P. Garrett of Omaha, Arkansas, who was reported missing in December of 2014. An extensive search was conducted at the time to locate Mr. Garrett.
Investigators are awaiting scientific identification from the Arkansas State Crime Lab. Circumstances surrounding Steven Garrett’s disappearance and death appear not to be of a suspicious nature though the investigation is ongoing.
