Warrants Issued for Two Suspects in Connection with Texarkana Man’s Murder
Arrest warrants have been issued for two suspects in connection with a Texas-side homicide of a Texarkana man. Warrants have been issued for 22-year-old Brandon Eric Brown of Dallas, Texas and 20-year-old Marquell Deonte Smith of Texarkana, Texas in connection with the death of 24-year-old Christopher Guilbeau. Guilbeau was reported missing last Wednesday afternoon by his family in Texarkana, Ark. The following day Brown and Smith were arrested in Tulsa, Okla., after Tulsa police found them in possession of Guilbeau’s stolen pickup truck.
Friday about 11 p.m. Texarkana, Texas patrol officers discovered Guilbeau's body concealed in an alley near the intersection of West 11th and Della Streets after two 9-1-1 calls led them to that location. Brown and Smith are currently in the custody of the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office where they will be required to face local charges before being extradited back to Texarkana, Texas to face Criminal murder charges.
The investigation into Guilbeau's death will continue as detectives from both Texarkana police agencies work together to solve this crime. Anyone with information on this or any other crime is asked to contact the Texarkana, Texas Police Department at 903-798-3116 or Texarkana Area Crimestoppers at 903- 793-STOP.
