I am Keith Rounsavall, a Private Investigator in Little Rock, Arkansas. I am working pro bono for Linda and Larry Ives and have been for more than a year. A witness to the murders of Kevin Ives and Don Henry contacted Linda Ives and she put me in contact with that individual, Billy Jack Haynes. Mr. Haynes has met with Larry and Linda Ives and has given them his account of what happened on 8-23-1987. He named the six others who were at the scene of the murders. Three law enforcement officers, two Attorneys/politicians and a bouncer for a local night club. He also named the Governor of Arkansas as having directed the events of that night, by cell phone.
3/1/18 Linda Ives met with the Saline County Sheriff's office and because two of the named suspects have close ties with the Sheriff of Saline County, an uncle of the Sheriff and a very close friend, she asked them to recuse themselves from doing the investigation and to refer it to the Arkansas State Police. They have refused to do that.
August 23, 1987, Linda Ives son, Kevin Ives, and Kevin's friend, Don Henry, were murdered in Alexander, Arkansas. Their bodies were placed on rail road tracks, later to be run over by a train.
For more than 30 years Linda Ives has been relentless in fighting to find out what happened to the two boys. She has encountered corrupt law enforcement, corrupt politicians, of both political parties, and the "good old boy" system. She has never given up on her efforts to get justice for the two boys!
The funds received through this GoFundMe effort will be used for investigative expenses such as lodging, travel, and other cost associated with the investigation. The investigators are working pro bono. Linda will not receive any money from the fund.
Billy Jack Haynes, an ex professsional wrestler, provided several new leads that need to followed up on. In addition, the Investigator is working on several other leads. These leads will require travel and lodging expenses. Those and other expenses likely will be incurred throughout the investigation.
Thank you for your interest in Linda's efforts to learn what happened 30 years ago.
