Russellville Police Continue Investigating Alleged Cancer Scam

Russellville police continue investigating two women accused of trying to scam people using a sick child who recently died.

Authorities asked the public to be on the lookout for women captured on surveillance video going to stores raising money for a boy with cancer. The women are accused of pretending to be associated with Heroes for Carter, a group honoring Carter Nuckols, a little boy who died of an inoperable brain tumor.

Since then, police say the women have stepped forward claiming it’s not a scam, and they’re raising money for a little boy in another state.

Russellville police are looking into the matter.
