(August 15, 2017) — U.S. marshals have issued a $5,000 reward for a man suspected of drowning another man, Samuel Smith, on July 26 in a Mississippi campground on Chewalla Lake in Holly Springs. An arrest warrant has been issued for Joshua Fletcher, 31, of Louisiana.
According to a Marshall County Sheriff’s spokesman, Smith, Fletcher and Smith’s dog were seen at the campground in the early morning hours of July 26.
Fletcher was last seen on video surveillance driving Smith’s truck. The truck is described as a silver Chevrolet S-10 with a white driver’s side door. It has a temporary Texas tag taped in the back window. A .30-30 rifle was in the truck at the time it was stolen. Smith’s dog has since been found.
Fletcher is considered dangerous with “violent tendencies,” according to the U.S. Marshals Service. He is 6 feet 3 inches tall, weighs approximately 170 pounds with brown eyes and brown hair. He may have shaved his head.
Marshall County Sheriff Kenny Dickerson said his office “is committed to seeing this investigation through until it ends.”
