City police officers in Gould (Lincoln County) have asked Arkansas State Police special agents to investigate what is preliminarily believed to be a homicide that occurred at 206 Jocelyn Street. Agents were contacted about 8 PM Friday [October 15th] by the Lincoln County sheriff.
The body of Vintrael Allen McKinzie, 36, of Gould, was found inside the residence where state police Criminal Investigation Division special agents found evidence of a shooting incident that may have occurred late in the afternoon or early evening yesterday. McKinzie’s body is being transported to the Arkansas State Crime Laboratory where a state medical examiner will determine the exact manner and cause of death.
