POCAHONTAS, Ark. (AP) - Police in Pocahontas say a body found in the city is that of a missing carnival worker.
Pocahontas Police Chief Cecil Tackett said Thursday the body was identified as that of 26-year-old Mathew St. Amant of Church Point, La.
The chief says the Arkansas State Crime Lab made the identification through fingerprints.
St. Amant was reported missing by a relative and that his fair group also hadn't seen him for a time.
The body was found in a neighborhood in Pocahontas and people living there say they didn't hear or see anything suspicious.
The investigation is continuing.
