Body found in submerged vehicle identified
SYLAMORE, Ark. (KAIT) - The Izard County Sheriff’s Office has identified a body found Sunday in a car submerged in the White River.
According to a news release shared on social media, the driver has been identified as 52-year-old Anita Farrier of Southside.

Arkansas State Police are assisting in the investigation.
