HOT SPRINGS VILLAGE, Ark. (AP, abc24.com) - Authorities in central Arkansas say they have a person of interest in the murder of a police dispatcher and mother of three whose body was found in the woods on New Year's Eve.
The Garland County Sheriff's Department on Thursday wouldn't not release the name of the person linked to Dawna Natzke's death.
Natzke was last seen leaving a holiday party on Dec. 21. She was reported missing two days later when she didn't show up for work in Hot Springs Village.
Her boyfriend told authorities that he hadn't seen her since the night of the party.
Searchers found Natzke's body on Dec. 31 in a remote part of the woods. It was a few miles from where her burned-out station wagon had been found the week before.
