Police say they responded to a call about a house fire at approximately 5:48 a.m. on Sunday, Feb. 9. Arkansas State Police were called to the scene after a deputy "found evidence that someone was possibly injured." During the investigation, it was found that Fason, the homeowner, was missing.

Rappold confessed to killing Fason, hauling his body to the dump, and attempting to destroy evidence by burning down his home.
