Elvia Fragstein's silver 2013 Honda CRV has been located and secured for forensic processing.
Jefferson County officials say the missing Wooster woman's vehicle was located Tuesday morning in the 300 block of North Elm Street in Pine Bluff.
Maj. Lafayette Woods Jr., Jefferson County Sheriff's Office spokesman, said her vehicle was driven to the 300 block of North Elm Street sometime following her death, noting the silver Honda has since been secured for forensic processing.
Each of the windows of the burnt rubble that was the remaining condition of the 71-year-old Wooster woman's vehicle was busted when authorities located it Tuesday morning.
Woods said he wanted to thank the public and other Faulkner County law enforcement agencies for aiding this investigation.
"We thank the community for supporting all the agencies' search efforts," he said Tuesday. "This investigation thus far is an example of multiple agencies working together for one common interest, which is to bring individuals to justice and provide a sense of closure for a grieving family. The tragic kidnapping and death of Mrs. Fragstein's was senseless and although arrests have been made, there are no winners here. Mrs. Fragstein is dead and her family is hurting today and will be for some time to come. Meanwhile, at least two young men have ruined their lives as a direct result of their own individual actions."
As of press time Tuesday, both teens accused in Fragstein's abduction were being held in the Faulkner County Detention Center.
Robert Lee Smith, 16, and Tacori D. Mackrell, 18, are both being charged as adults in Faulkner County with kidnapping and theft of property following an investigation by the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office and Conway Police Department with help from JCSO after Fragstein was found dead in rural Jefferson County last week.
Fragstein, 71, of Wooster was found by a Jefferson County resident around 10 a.m. Wednesday in a wooded area along Gibb Anderson Road after being reported missing by her husband July 7.
"If you recall, Fragstein went missing after leaving a store in Conway on July 7," CPD spokesman previously said, noting officials are working closely together on this case in seeking justice in Fragstein's death.
"While the Faulkner County Sheriff's Office has taken the lead on this case, investigators continue to work closely with the 20th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney's Office, Conway Police Department and Jefferson County Sheriff's Office," she said.
Smith and Mackrell are each scheduled to appear in Faulkner County district court for a first appearance hearing Wednesday morning.
The Log Cabin reached out to local officials regarding possible murder charges in this case. However, at this point, FCSO spokesman Erinn Stone, authorities are not at liberty to say if such charges will be filed out of Faulkner County or Jefferson County courts.
"Hopefully we can answer everyone's questions soon," she said Tuesday morning. "However, this is an ongoing investigation an no other information will be released at this time."
