Looking into the background of Arron Lewis

Looking into the background of Arron Lewis


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - In a 911 tape a caller says, "This guy looks like him." Monday morning Little Rock police get a tip. The caller continues, "And he is nervous. He's out here at a bus stop."

Around 10 a.m. Arron Lewis was arrested and spent hours being interviewed and questioned about his role in the disappearance of real estate agent Beverly Carter. Sheriff Doc Holladay explains, "We will have him here for as long as we need to determine what we can from him to lead us to locating Ms. Carter, which is our primary goal.

Authorities are providing very little information in regard to Lewis's connection to Carter, which prompted THV11 to dig into his background, in search of people who may know him.
