WALNUT RIDGE, Ark. (AP) — Authorities in northeast Arkansas say a body found in a river this weekend is that of a missing 14-year-old girl. Lawrence County Sheriff Jody Dotson says Monday that the body found Saturday in the Black River has been identified as Sidney Nicole Randall. Authorities say Sidney was last seen on March 9. The prime suspect in her disappearance was found dead two days later in an apparent suicide. Authorities say the suspect, John Cornell, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound near a truck parked in a field in the Walnut Ridge area. Officials and volunteers have searched for Sidney weeks after her disappearance. Details about how and when Sidney died have not yet been released. Walnut Ridge is about 130 miles northeast of Little Rock.
