Body found in Sherwood

Homeowner fires shots to scare off thieves

— It wasn't the first time the family at 10701 Arkansas 107 in Sherwood heard people outside who they believed were trying to steal off-road vehicles from their shed, nor was it the first time they fired a gun to scare off the would-be thieves.

It was, however, the first time they did so and later found a dead body on their property.

At 1 a.m. Tuesday, Sherwood police said, Erlene and Larry Staley thought they heard - again - the sound of people rummaging around in their open-air shed on a wide-open piece of unfenced land where Arkansas 107 splits into the Sylvan Hills Highway and Kellogg Acres Road.

Erlene Staley called 911 to report a burglary, police said, and Larry Staley went outside carrying a gun to confront them.
