Log Cabin Democrat


Arkansas State Police have new information in the investigation of a murder that occurred earlier this month in Conway along Interstate 40.

Jose Martinez, 31, of Conway, the driver of a black Nissan Frontier pick-up truck, was shot Sunday morning, February 10th as he approached the I-40 westbound exit onto Dave Ward Drive.  Martinez was found in the pick-up truck, transported to a Conway hospital where he died.

Special agents assigned to the State Police Criminal Investigation Division now suspect a white, four-door Nissan passenger car may have been in the area where Martinez was killed.

 Agents are particularly interested in hearing from anyone who may have seen the white Nissan as early as 4:45 a.m. in the vicinity of I-40 at Morgan or along the westbound lanes into Conway as late as 5:15 a.m.

Persons with information about the vehicles should contact Arkansas State Police at (501) 618-8100.
