A body found buried in a Pulaski County backyard has been identified. The victim is missing Cabot man James Heath. Deputies have taken three people into custody.
Shortly after deputies found the body, they began searching for two people, a man and a woman, who they believed had important information that could help clear up this case.
Joyce Rollf, 40, and 23-year-old William Null were found this afternoon. A Polk County officer identified them during a traffic stop. They are now being questioned by Pulaski County deputies. Taylor Arnold, 20, was arrested not long after the body was found Wednesday.
Arnold was in court Thursday facing charges of first degree murder, tampering with evidence and abuse of a corpse. According to his arrest report, Arnold admitted to deputies that he was in the home when Heath was murdered and helped wrap the body in sheets and bury him outside.
However, there is still a lot deputies don't know about what happened
"Until you get all the parties involved and interviewed, it's still a mystery at this point. We're still piecing that together. That will include the motive, why was this man killed. Chances are they probably did know each other, but their exact relationship at this point is still undetermined," said Lt. Carl Minden.
Arnold is being held at the jail on a $500,000 bond. Rollf and Null have not been charged at this point.
