Original story (July 15):
JESSIEVILLE, AR -- The Garland County Sheriff's Office (GCSO) has arrested two suspects and are looking for a third in the murder of 71-year-old Dan Roberson, who was found in a wooded area during a search on Saturday.

According to GCSO, 18-year-old Ethan Sallee and a 17-year-old have been arrested and charged with capital murder. GCSO says they anticipate charging the juvenile as an adult.

A third suspect, 21-year-old Chestly Wayne Gaston of Jessieville, is also wanted for his role in connection to the crime. He is considered armed and dangerous.

GCSO says they believe Gaston has fled to Texas, where officials are working closely with them to determine his location and bring him into custody.

Although the official cause of death has yet to be determined, GCSO says early evidence indicates he may have been stabbed and possibly strangled.
