Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police and Ashley County Sheriff's Deputies have identified a second suspect believed to be directly connected to the kidnapping and murder of a Crossett woman and the subsequent robbery of a North Crossett bank which occurred last Thursday (July 1st).

Law enforcement authorities in both Arkansas and Mississippi are searching for Kendell Clifton Nickelson, 26, who was last known to reside in Brookhaven, Mississippi.

Nickelson is described (see attached image file) as a black male, 5 feet, 11 inches tall, weighing approximately 160 pounds.  Agents believe Nickelson may be driving a 2002 white Cadillac Escalade (see attached image file).  This is the same vehicle identified earlier in a State Police news release associated with the identification of Peter Keith Harvey who was arrested yesterday in Opelousas, Louisiana.

Nickelson should be considered armed and dangerous.

If anyone has information about Nickelson or knows of his whereabouts, they should contact the Arkansas State Police or the Ashley County Sheriff's Department.
