  • State and county investigators have concluded their probe of a double shooting which occurred here Nov. 26. Roger Allen Runnels, 51, of 2497 Highway 32 W. in Bodcaw and his wife, Dangele Denise "DD" Runnels, 44, were found dead in their residence by Nevada County Sheriff's deputies Nov. 26. According to the Sheriff's office, the pair were found dead from gunfire in their home around 12:11 p.m. Officers were sent to the address after family members had contacted authorities for a welfare check. Deputies were told that no one had been able to make contact with either of them in the home and their vehicles were still in front of the residence. EMS services were called to the scene to check both victims. After investigation by the Arkansas State Police and talking to family members, it was determined that Roger Allen Runnels had shot and killed his wife before shooting himself, according to a statement by Nevada County Sheriff Danny Martin. Both bodies were sent to the Arkansas State Crime lab for autopsy.
