$1 million bond set for suspect in deadly shooting
Phone, social media helps police link suspect to murder



Updated December 3 at 6:54 PM

JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - A Craighead County man faces a first-degree murder charge in the shooting death of a man on Parkwood Drive on Sunday.

Jonesboro police said they went to a home on Parkwood Drive around 11:20 p.m. Saturday after former residents discovered a truck running in the driveway of the vacant house. They called police believing a burglary was in progress.

Officers found a man, later identified as Andrew Powell, inside the vacant home with, “obvious gunshot wounds,” the affidavit stated.

While collecting evidence, investigators found Powell’s cellphone lying in the front yard.

During a search of the phone, police found a text conversation that took place between the victim and a subject named “Wesley”
shortly before the incident.

“Further investigation of the text conversation, revealed the identity of the owner of the phone number,” the probable cause affidavit stated. Police used a social media search to discover the phone’s owner was “friends” with Wesley Neal.

On Dec. 1, investigators went to the home of the owner of the phone, who was not named in the affidavit.

When police were talking with the individual and their significant other, Neal walked up to the home. All three were taken to the Jonesboro Police Department for questioning.

While being questioned, the owner of the phone and the significant other said Neal had the cell phone when the victim was murdered.

Neal admitted to being Powell’s friend during questioning and had “past dealings with him,” the affidavit stated.

“Neal admitted to being inside the home where Powell’s body was found."

The affidavit ultimately did not reveal what led to Powell’s shooting death, only placing Neal at the scene at the time of Powell’s murder.
