MOUNTAIN VIEW, AR – The deaths of an elderly man and woman are under investigation.
The Stone County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) identifies the victims as Quincy Barfield, 85, and his wife Rosie Barfield, 77.
Deputies say neighbors found their bodies shortly before 1 on Thursday afternoon inside their home on Highway 9, south of Mountain View.
It is believed that both victims died of gunshot wounds, according to a news release from the SCSO, which also states without further explanation that murder is not suspected in either death.
Both bodies have been taken to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for autopsy.
The SCSO says the Barfield’s had been married to each other for most of their adult lives. They were farmers who had moved to Stone County for retirement.
