Poinsett County

We mourn the death of Trumann Police officer Jonathan Schmidt who was killed last night in the line of duty while making a traffic stop. We pray for the family of this officer and all members of the Trumann Police Department. New conference video HERE.

One of the most moving moments today in Trumann was when three West Memphis Police officers including Officer Jimmy Evans, brother of slain officer Bill Evans arrived to console Officer Schmidt’s family. It has been almost eleven months since gunmen opened fire during a traffic stop killing both Officers Bill Evans and Brandon Paudert in West Memphis on May 20, 2010.
