A chilling story in Arkansas took another tragic turn as 2-year-old Acelynn Carrie Wester was found dead three days after her mother’s body was discovered in a creek.
According to KFSM, the toddler was found in a wooded area outside of Cove, Arkansas. Acelynn’s mother, Bethany Jo Wester, 43, was found dead on April 25 in a creek in the same area.
And on April 27, Bethany’s uncle Steven J. Payne was found dead in his home in Hatfield. All three deaths are reportedly being treated as homicides. The causes of death are not yet known.
The baby’s older brother remains critically missing. Reilly James Scarbrough, 10, and his baby sister were last seen on Sunday.
Reilly is 3 feet six inches tall and weighs around 60 pounds.
