Unbelieveable!!! Gee....I wonder why THAT happened. Hopefully someone saw SOMETHING.....ANYTHING that would point to the person who did it.....if it indeed was an "Intentional Fire".....And its hard to believe that considering the circumstances surrounding the Porters Murders, that it wouldn't have been an "Intentional Fire"......And the Plot Thickens

This is truly sad. I have friends who live in that region, and I asked them about this case a month or so ago. They told me that all the rumors around there are that drugs were involved, so likely nobody is trying too darn hard to really find answers. I guess the mindset is that if you were involved in drugs, you deserved what you got.... I dont really get it... if someone is out there murdering folks, they need to be caught and dealt with!

Perhaps.

Greene County investigators determined that an early morning fire at the Porter’s house was unintentional.

Faulty electrical wiring in the attic caused the blaze that raised eyebrows of investigators still searching for evidence in the slaying of the Willard couple.

Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott said today he feels “pretty close” to resolving the homicide investigation of a Willard couple who vanished from their home one year ago.

About two dozen family members of Rusty and Rebecca Porter were present at a 10 a.m. news conference when Arnott said a $20,000 reward will be offered for information that leads to an arrest. Arnott said the reward is funded by $5,000 from Crime Stoppers and $15,000 from the family.

Update: Sheriff Believes Porter Murders Will be Solved

Arnott said one of his detectives still works on the Porter case exclusively. "We have several persons of interest," he said. Investigators have served multiple search warrants in several counties, not just Greene and Taney, he said.

Suspects In Porter Homicide's Named In Court Documents:

A Springfield couple was arrested on drug charges on Wednesday May 30th, but it's what's contained in court documents that make their arrest noteworthy.

According to court documents, when US Marshals served a search warrant at the heavily fortified mobile home of Tony L. and Windy Dawn Friend at 3155 W. Brower St. #10 in Greene County they found seven illegal firearms and live ammunition.

Has it been said why these two were killed? I realize there isn't a good reason but when I read that Russell Porters own uncle was involved it just blows my mind. Especially when I look at his picture. Why?

http://ozarksfirst.com/fulltext?nxd_id=808272
Campbell, the uncle of Russell Porter, was scheduled to be in court May 16, but his hearing was continued until June 13. He also received a change of venue, and is free on bond.

When will information about motive be released? Has it not been released because there are more arrests to come or because it may affect any trial?

Partial motive for the murders is the property dispute between Russell and his uncle Robert Campbell. There was supposedly an "intricate scheme" that could require the involvement of multiple state and/or federal agencies, information that will come out in the trials.

This is one of the saddest cases I've read. Taken from bed and marched into the woods and shot in the head over what? Land?
