John Tillman Hussey
Birth: Nov. 3, 1953
Death: Dec. 21, 1975, USA

In the early morning hours of Sunday, December 21, 1975, a Springdale police officer, John Tillman Hussey, was murdered in a wooded area west of Fayetteville, Arkansas. Hussey was shot with his own pistol while his wrists were handcuffed behind his back.

At about 3:49 that morning Officer Hussey had radioed to his headquarters that he was stopping a vehicle on U.S. Highway 71 at the Springdale / Fayetteville line. A fellow Officer, heard the radio communication and went at once to the place mentioned by Hussey. When the other Officer arrived about four minutes after the radio message he found Hussey's police car parked by itself on the highway, its blue lights still flashing. Officer Hussey was not in the car and could not be found.

The suspects were apprehended.

Rest in Peace Springdale 310.
