Douglas A. Foreman

       Since the last update provided on November 20th, the investigation into the hit and run accident on Old Military Road that caused the death of 63 year old DOUGLAS A. FOREMAN on November 2, 2015 (reported November 3rd) is still continuing. To date, approximately one hundred citizen tips have come into the Sheriff’s Office relating to this incident. Sheriff’s Investigators have been sorting through and processing the information and tips obtained from those calls, emails, and messages.

     Investigators have narrowed down the time-line and believe that the incident occurred between 10:55 PM and 11:15 PM on November 2nd. Data received from cellular phone towers in the area pursuant to court orders have been received and are continuing to be analyzed. Evidence collected at the scene and from the body of MR. FOREMAN was taken to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory in Little Rock and to the FBI Forensics Laboratory in Quantico, Virginia. Investigators also recovered paint chips at the accident scene. FBI laboratory results indicate that the paint evidence from the scene is a dark teal green metallic color, part of which is believed to have come from a vinyl wrap, bumper sticker, logo, or other similar type of material.

     Due to the time-line being narrowed, Investigators have also been able to determine that fog was not present at the time of the accident but occurred much later in the early morning hours of November 3rd.

     Investigators and deputies had canvassed the area on two different occasions shortly after the accident and did so again last night from 9:00 PM until midnight, handing out flyers to motorists passing through the area.

     The reward leading to the arrest of the person responsible for the death of DOUGLAS FOREMAN has now grown to $5,867.50 and remains in place. Anyone with information who would like to receive the reward and still remain anonymous needs to contact Sheriff John Montgomery.
