Overview of 1983 Sebastian County John Doe
The victim was found floating in the Arkansas River by personnel at the Lock and Dam 13 Southend 4th gate on the west side. There is a possibility that he might have floated from Oklahoma considering that this location is only 4 miles from the Oklahoma and Arkansas state line. There are also several homeless camps close to the river.
