2 Farmers Shot From Ambush
------------------
(Special to The Daily Times)
Searcy, Ark., July 9 The bodies of Joe Walls, 32, and his nephew, Kelly Smith, 21, both farmers, were found in the road 14 miles from here early this morning. Indications were that they had been shot from ambush last night while driving to their home from Searcy. Tom and Robert Fisher, cousins of Walls, who live adjoin farms, were arrested, but soon exonerated, and officers admit that so far they have been unable to find a motive for the double killing.
