    Arkansas State Police confirmed Thursday that remains discovered at a homicide scene in Pocahontas are those of former State Senator Linda Collins-Smith. Special agents with the ASP Criminal Investigation Division and the Randolph County Sheriff’s Office are continuing to investigate.


    Her body was discovered outside the home, located at 4023 Arkansas Highway 90 West, late Tuesday afternoon, according to Bill Sadler, public information officer for ASP.
    The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene, then contacted ASP’s Criminal Investigation Division to assist.


    Randolph County Sheriff Kevin Bell held a press conference Wednesday and confirmed details on the body found.


    “The dead body of a female was discovered at the residence of former Arkansas State Senator Linda Collins-Smith," Bell said. "The condition of the body prevented any immediate positive identification.”


    The sheriff’s office asked that ASP be the “lead investigative agency in what is currently being handled as a homicide investigation.”


    Prosecuting Attorney Henry H. Boyce stated in a release Wednesday that no information about the case while it is under investigation.


    “Third Judicial District Court Judge Harold Erwin issued an order sealing the documents and statements obtained by police during the pendency of this investigation.”

    Just a few months back she called into the Q-anon channel Patriot’s soapbox. A judge very quickly sealed all the records relating to the case.

    Flashback:

    Tolbert: Rep. Collins-Smith Joins Republican Ranks
    TOLBERT REPORT
    by Jason Tolbert (jasontcpa@yahoo.com) August 8, 2011 7:00 pm

    The last couple of weeks Republican insiders have been abuzz about a possible party switch of a state legislator from the Democratic to the Republican Party. The Arkansas News Bureau reports that the Republican Party has a news conference scheduled for Wednesday morning at the state capitol and this is likely the subject of the conference. Indeed, the Arkansas GOP put out a press release that it will hold a press conference on Wednesday at 10:45. In addition to House and party leadership, a “special guest” will be in attendance.

    Speculation is that State Rep. Linda Collins-Smith of Pocahontas will likely be announcing that she is switching from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party. As a freshman representative, Collins-Smith distinguished herself as one of the most conservative Democrats under the capitol dome voting many times with the Republican minority. She was also a regular at the weekly conservative caucus lunch during the session.

    In addition, Collins-Smith was a vocal opponent of the latest Arkansas House map approved by Gov. Mike Beebe and Attorney General Dustin McDaniel. The map puts her in the same district with Rep. Lori Benedict (R-Sturkie) in a oddly-shaped district. The new Senate map also moves Collins-Smith into the same district with Sen. Robert Thompson (D-Paragould) and only a few miles from the district with Sen. David Wyatt (D-Batesville.)

    We will know for certain tomorrow, but it is a safe bet that Linda Collins-Smith will be in the capitol rotunda tomorrow at the announcement.

    UPDATE – It’s official! Collins-Smith confirmed what I speculated yesterday that she is switching parties from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party. She made the announcement flanked by a couple dozen Republican elected officials including Lt. Gov. Mark Darr, Congressman Tim Griffin, and another recent party switcher, Saline County Sheriff Bruce Pennington.

    “I am here today to announce that I have joined the Republican Party of Arkansas,” began Collins-Smith to the applause of those around her. “My decision was made after much thought, prayer, and discussion with my family.”

    She explained that she ran as a Democrat in 2010 and she was raised a Democrat.

    “I came to Little Rock believing that it was not too late for the Arkansas Democratic Party to reject the far drift of the national Party. I truly hoped it could once again be the party of the people. I wanted to help move the Party back to the values of those everyday voters,” said Collins-Smith.

    “Unfortunately, I found that the politics of Washington and the politics of the liberal left in that Democratic Party of Arkansas that there is no room for conservatives. Those who question the folly of excessive taxation are unwelcome. Those who stand for the right of babies in the womb, they are outcasts. And those who seek to create jobs by making Arkansas a business-friendly state are punished.”

    “I do this because I have found it is the Republican Party that has become the party of hard-working common-sense people. It is the Republican Party that strives to live by the ideal expressed in our state motto, ‘The People Rule.’ It is the Republican party that most closely holds to the principles that I and most other Arkansans believe in: Government that manages limited finances wisely and lives within its means: government that encourages the development of business, both large and small, to create jobs for hardworking Arkansas families, government that values and protects the life of every citizen from the womb to the grave, government that doesn’t try to regulate the everyday life and personal choices of law-abiding people, and government that is better, not bigger.”

    “If you remember only one thing, I hope it is this: ‘I have not changed.’ I am the same today as I was when the people of Randolph and Sharp Counties elected me. I have not left the Democratic Party, but the party left me. And I believe it has left behind the majority of the good, decent, freedom-loving people of Arkansas,” concluded Collins-Smith.

    From Wiki:

    Personal life
    Collins-Smith owned and operated a Days Inn hotel in Pocahontas. Until their divorce in 2018, she was married to Philip Smith, a circuit court judge.[11] They have two children.[2]

    Collins-Smith was found dead from a gunshot wound at her home in Pocahontas on June 4, 2019. According to local law enforcement, the exact circumstances of her death are unknown due to the condition of the body at the time of discovery. The death is under investigation.[12][13] Collins-Smith's remains were found outside her home.[14]

    What kind of monster would do such a thing to an elected state Representative?
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    Pro-Trump Arkansas State Senator who was found shot to death in her home and had all Police records relating to the investigation preemptively sealed by a judge immediately may have been looking into some way the Clinton Foundation had embezzled $27 million from DHS and Child Protective Services.

    A second former GOP state senator was found dead from a gunshot within a span of two days.


    Former Oklahoma state Sen. Jonathan Nichols, 53, was found dead inside his home in Norman on Wednesday night from an apparent gunshot wound, police said. Cops are working with the Oklahoma Medical Examiner’s Office to determine the exact cause and manner of death.


    His death comes just one day after former Arkansas state Sen. Linda Collins-Smith, 56, was found fatally shot outside her home in Pocahontas on Tuesday. Police are investigating her death as a homicide.




    Arkansas and Oklahoma lie side-by-side, with a distance of under 500 miles between Pocahontas, Ark., and Norman, Okla., where the deaths occurred.
