SHERIFF'S DEPUTIES FIND THREE DEAD FROM GUNSHOT WOUNDS AT HOUSE IN ROBINSON POINT AREA

     At approximately 9:01 AM Friday, December 24, 2010, Baxter County Sheriff's Deputies responded to a 911 call reporting that a woman was observed to be lying on the floor in a pool of blood inside the residence at 124 Forest Hills Dr., which is in the Robinson Point area of Lake Norfork, East of Mountain Home.  The caller had been unable to reach the occupants and was attempting to check their welfare.

     Sheriff's Deputies and an officer with the Arkansas State Police arrived at the residence at approximately 9:11 AM to investigate.  Deputies had to force entry into the residence through the locked front door to gain access. 

     Once inside the residence, Deputies discovered three bodies, each of which appeared to have suffered gunshot wounds.  The preliminary investigation determined that the three persons were a man and his wife, who lived at the residence, as well as her son, who was visiting from out of state. 

     Sheriff's Investigators from the Criminal Investigation Division and the Baxter County Coroner's Office were called to the residence.  The immediate indication, based on the evidence at the scene, suggests that the husband shot and killed his wife and her son, then shot and killed himself, however no conclusions have been reached and the investigation is actively continuing.  A handgun was found at the scene and taken into evidence, as well spent shell casings and other items of evidentiary value.

     The bodies of the deceased have been transferred to the custody of the State Medical Examiner's Office for transport to Little Rock for autopsy.  The results of the autopsies will not be known for several days.

     The dead are identified as Harry D. Svensson, 52 years old of 124 Forest Hills Dr, his wife Louise Svensson, 56 years old of the same address, and her son, Victor A. Robles, 20 years old of Villa Parks, Illinois.

     The final results and conclusions of the investigation will not be made or released until autopsy results have been received and all evidence processed.

/s/ John F. Montgomery,
Baxter County Sheriff
