Brinkley murder suspect arrested in Colorado

Posted By on Sat, Aug 23, 2014 at 9:46 AM

Just in from the Arkansas State Police: News of the arrest in Colorado of a Brinkley man suspected of killing his father and robbing his grandmother on a farm near Brinkley. The release:

Dustin Heath Burrow, 29, of Brinkley, charged with Capital Murder and Aggravated Robbery is in custody.

Shortly after 4 AM (Central) today, Colorado Highway Patrol Troopers located an abandoned pick-up truck along Interstate 25 near Fort Collins, Colorado. The truck matched the description of one driven by Burrow following the Thursday (August 21st) murder and robbery.

Three hours later, at approximately 7 AM (Central), Fort Collins Police located Burrow walking in the vicinity of a homeless shelter. Burrow was taken into custody without incident.

Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division are en route to Fort Collins and will be present for an extradition hearing as quickly as one can be scheduled.

Burrow is charged in connection with the murder of his father, Carl Lynn Burrow, 62, of Brinkley and the robbery at gunpoint of his grandmother, Vaudean Burrow, 91, also of Brinkley.

Monroe County authorities discovered the body of Carl Burrow Thursday afternoon near a barn on the Burrow property west of Brinkley.
