Update from Bill Sadler of the State Police:

A search by law enforcement authorities in Ashley County has located the 2003 Nissan Altima believed to have used by two suspects as a getaway vehicle following a bank robbery in North Crossett about 9:15 AM today (Friday, July 1, 2010).

At the present time the FBI, Arkansas State Police Criminal Investigation Division, and local authorities are processing four crime scenes including a local residence where the vehicle was stolen and a woman was abducted, a murder scene near the bank where the woman was shot prior to the bank robbery, the First National Bank of North Crossett located on Highway 133 and a location north of town where the getaway car was located in the past hour.

Until next of kin have been notified no further information is being released with regard to the location from where the car was taken or the identity of the victim.

UPDATE: The murder victim has been identified as Donna J. Woodberry, 58, of Crossett
