DELIGHT – The apparent murder of a 63 year-old Pike County woman has led state police Criminal Investigation Division Special Agents to join in the investigation. The body of Theresa Humphry was found at her home this morning.

Pike County Sheriff’s Deputies located the body at 307 Billstown Road in Delight and requested the Arkansas State Police to assist them in the criminal investigation.

A 39 year-old man has been taken into custody and is being held at the Pike County Jail in Murfreesboro while the investigation continues this afternoon. Special Agents expect to submit information to the Pike County prosecuting attorney for the consideration of formal charges.
