BOONE COUNTY, Ark. (KY3) - Several law enforcement agencies are searching for a man wanted for questioning in a deadly Boone County shooting.

It’s unclear when the homicide happened. Investigators have not released the person’s identity or confirmed how they died.

Investigators say Jason Lee Stockstill, 49, ran from law enforcement in the Buffalo National River area. Searcy County Sheriff Kenny Cassell located Stockstill’s vehicle on U.S. 65 in St. Joe. After giving chase, Stockstill bailed from the vehicle and ran into the woods. The sheriff says he may be accompanied by a woman.

“This person is considered dangerous,” said Sheriff Cassell. “Please keep your house and vehicles locked and keep an eye out for him at all times.”

Anyone with any information on Stockstill or his location is asked to call the Searcy County Sheriff’s Office crime tip hotline at 870-448-2340. Assisting the Searcy County Sheriff’s Office in the search are members of the Arkansas State Police, Marshall Police Department, Boone County Sheriff’s Department, Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, Federal Park Service, 20th Judicial Task Force, Boone County Task Force, and tracking dogs from the North Central Prison Unit in Calico Rock.
